Now there is a thing......on e-bay and here, there are details of a new 2008/9 sat nav disc for T31 at various prices.

So checked with my local Nissan dealer and he confirmed that the disc numbers check out and Nissan will provide me with one of these discs at a cost of.........£598.08....including vat. :eek:

This morning I received my disc from e-bay trader and it works fine with no problems. No post code input yet, but for £45, I can wait another year. :D :D

What are the changes over the 2008 disc?
The 07 disc is using maps dated March 07 and the new 08 disc is using maps dated March 08. So the maps are always out of date.

I have not done a lot of mileage since installing the new disc, but I have noticed that a local garage which was a BP station is now shown as an Esso garage. That is fine except that this has since closed and a block of flats has been built on the ground :roll:

Also most of the French main roads are being re-numbered so I hope the new disc is updating some of the roads albeit 18-24 months late.

Hi if your Xtrail has a firmware upgrade you will get postcode search with this Disc if your Firmware is not up todate it will just provide the latest Mapping and POI Thanks Helen x

I don't think so !!!

This sounds like a "get out clause" from nissanupgrades, so that when you buy disc and you still do not get post codes then they will just hit you with this excuse and refuse any further responsability.

But it's each persons call !!!

I have just ordered my new X-Trail Sport and noticed that the mapping in the demo. model is way out of date (eg: not showing a motorway in Austria opened in November '07) and the mapping of some Central Eurapean countries was so atrocious as to be totally useless. :bigcry:

My dealer did tell me that new maps were due in November at a price of over £300. :bigcry:

Sometimes I wonder why cars have built-in sat-nav when the maps are so out of date and upgrades are so expensive that you can get a pair of Tom-Toms for the same price (*and* they do more). :frown: :bigcry:
