Thanks Jim & Ken. It appears you are right, and the latest update for mine is 2013. I may even have that already, I haven't checked. If not, Nissan want £149 plus postage, but there is a version available from digital-media-uk on ebay for a much more reasonable £8.99 with free postage. I'll have to take a look at what I already have, and if it's the original disk I will probably order the £8.99 version off ebay. I don't see any point in paying over £150 for a version that is already 6 years out of date! I bet they don't sell many at that price!

I've never had any dealings with sat-navs before, so I presume if I take the old disk out and the new one doesn't work properly, I can still put the original back in? At least £8.99 isn't much to lose if it's no good.

Anyone used one of these after-market disks off ebay?

I have ordered a 2013 map update online , couldn't find any that were more recent than that but will still be a better option than the original map fitted to ours, Bus Man, I would think the seller offering the £8.99 version you have ordered would have very poor feedback if they did not work, did you take a look at his ratings? I will keep you posted on the install when mine arrives.

I haven't actually ordered it yet as I haven't had time to look at what I already have. It may already be the 2013 version, as all I know is that it is not up to date.

I have indeed looked at the seller's ratings and they are good, so I would think he is a pretty safe bet for it working well. I'm just surprised at the price Nissan want for a 6 years out-of-date disk. I would have thought they would be giving them away by now.

From our experience, Nissan give you nothing including good customer service, I drive a Volvo who are poor but Nissan take the biscuit!
I wish I could find updated discs for ours for £8.99!

I had a Volvo V70, and I never took that to a main dealer. I knew an independent Volvo specialist who looked after it for me. I'm not sure where my nearest Nissan main dealer is, but then I don't usually have any dealings with main dealers. Only independent garages.

I'm not sure what disk would fit your car, but I know the one I found on ebay was for version X7, but they also do one for version X6 if that is any help. That one is £9.99. Neither version is exactly up-to-date, but they do both go to 2013. I might have been wiling to pay Nissan's price for a 2019 update, but I now know that there isn't one. I certainly wouldn't pay any more than £10 for one that was 6 years out-of-date.

Not been here for a while - sorry.

The latest X7 discs are definitely the 2013 maps. I would never buy a Nissan again if they stop map updates only 4-years after I bought it. :headbang:

The T31 is an excellent vehicle, the T32 is downgraded to a crossover and the Škoda Kodiak is better - although I am drooling over the new Land Rover Defender; but that is way over budget unless I wil the lottery.

But my 2009 X-Trail is stilol going strong - despite ateh €2,500 brteakdown on the Autobahn in Germany last year. :bigcry:

But still virtually no rust after almost 11 years and 0ver 140,000 miles of dribing. :thumbs:

My 2008 X Trail has no noticeable rust either, and its now done 112, 000 miles. I did update the sat-nav using the £8.99 disk off ebay and it seems to work fine. It will certainly do me anyway. I've never had a vehicle with sat-nav before, and I know my way around much of England anyway as I drove for many years for a living. It's normally the last 3 miles to my destination that I am likely to need help with, and road layouts in both rural and urban areas don't tend to change that much even if the main roads do.

Mine are 2016 maps and I see they've now done a new set which appear to be 2018 I think but then mine is different to yours John.

Mine now has 173k on clock and runs like a dream - few marks here and there on body and that annoying small rust patch under edge of chrome trim across the tailgate. Not getting any bigger but still annoying and pain to fix. Apart from that rust free :)

Same here I'm afraid despite being resprayed twice by Nissan (their contractor) who didn't treat the rust. :headbang:

When the weather bucks up I'm going to have to do it myself and treat with Jenolite. https://jenolite.com/

I find "Chips Away" excellent.

I have had them out a few times to sort out the odd scratch and/or dent.

They do an excellent job and prices are extremely reasonable. I even had them sand-blast and refurbish the wheels recently - came back better than new and costy about £75 per wheel. :thumbs:
