A8 2004 Navigation system not active

I should have this system in the car but I get a message saying " Check navigation cd" The player would not accept the cd and the agency told me that I need to change the control unit.
And I also want to operate the handbook but get the same message. Is there anything I can do other than changing the control unit

NAV unit uses a DVD disc. If its a copy, it may or may not work. I suggest you remove the NAV disc, unplug the NAV unit from power for 4-5 minutes, reconnect the NAV and try inserting the disc again to see if it reads. If it still does not read, another NAV disc needs to be inserted to verify its not a "bad" NAV DVD disc issue. If it still cannot read the second disc, the NAV unit is bad. The handbook feature needs the disc inserted in the slot 1 of the CD changer unit.

Why doesn't 6-disk CD player accept CDs?


Could be loaded with CD's already. Or some use a Navigation disk and may not load until the Navigation disk is in place. Another Expert may have more to say about this.

I have a 2004 Acura RL, navigation screen reads "check nav disc". How do I fix?


Your Navigation disc usually is in the CD player. Most require the First Disc to be the Navigation disc. Now if this disc was removed or if someone changed the position of #1 disc and inserted something else, then that is why you have your message.

It is also possible that removing the Battery from the car may cause it to lose the programming in the Navigation. It may simply need the Navigation disc to be reread.

Nissan Elgrand Where can i find an English onwer's manual Book and English Navigation system Book for 1998 Nissan Elgrand Model?


There is an article on eBay by a1benz about this. He claims the factory fitted Navigation system can not work in the UK or Europe and he fits replacement systems. He says that CD player will only play DVD's if they are navigation discs and will not play DVD movie discs (Is this due to the Region settings on the player perhaps?)
It is also worth noting that the TV system is NTSC not PAL so anything you try and plug into it will need to have the output set to NTSC!
I have found a supplier offering English Navigation Discs for v6 and v7 of the Nissan XANAVI system but unfortunately I don't know what Elgrand system version is.

I have an early e46 with the cassette player in the front and the cd changer in the boot. Can I swap the head unit for one with a cd player in it, and do I need anything else ? Thanks


You can replace the old radio and cassette player with a new modern aftermarket dvd player gps navigation unit like this.

It's with more features except navigation system, USB, iPod, AUX, SD, DVD player, rear view camera video input, and it's touch screen, easy operation.
