Rather than leave the engine running which was what the instructions say, I switched the key (keyless entry) position to 1st accessory position so the nav unit was active but nothing else was lit. I connected a CTEK charger unit (which I have for my caravan) to the battery and just left it for 2 + hours just coming back to check and load the next disc.

Just updated the Satnav on my 2011 Tekna and thought how it went might be interesting to someone. I got the discs from 'Here', the firm used by Nissan for their Satnavs. It cost the outrageous sum of £145.00 plus postage and comes from the Netherlands. The package arrived (a bit battered) a day late but that was down to UPS who still haven't given me a reason for it!
The update discs are the 'Connect Premium (X9.0) Europe V4' and although it doesn't actually say it, it is supposed to be the 2015 update.There are 5 discs in a sealed DVD plastic box. After an initial cock-up which was more my fault really but still cost me two phone calls to Here I managed to do the update. The Application Software Disc took 20 minutes to load. Map Discs 1 & 2 took approx. 35 minutes each. Map Disc 3 took 48 minutes and Map Disc 4 took 5 minutes. I haven't tried the system 'in anger' yet but it appears to have remembered my Home location and Previous Destinations (one plus is it now shows the lane outside our house which has only been there for 500 years but the original map didn't show it )
In a sort of answer to one question I have read somewhere on this forum, I think that the discs will work on any system that has the same head unit as mine (mine said 92-61100709 as the Unit ID)
If your head unit looks like that and/or the Nissan website says that the Connect Premium (X9.0) is the discs you require then I think the discs will work as they come in a manufacturers sealed box so I can't see them making individual sets for every unit (you would need the Access/Licence Code though which comes with the discs).
Anyway, the update seems to have worked even though it took ages of sitting in the car with the engine running and not daring to switch anything else on in case I screwed everything up. As a slight aside, during the time the engine (diesel) was running the instrument panel showed I had used 10 miles worth of fuel
Hope that may be of interest.
