    If you have two disc slots, then you have what is called a CCC and then you have Navigation, if only one - no navigation

    Is this a US vehicle?

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.

Buying a used 2006 navigator. i was wondering if it is possible to update the navigation? and how you would recomend doing it? thanks


Yes and you may not buy the car if you know. But all of the Manufacturers probably operate the same scam. Even if you are the original owner, it costs you between $250 and $350 to get a reprogramming disk to upgrade the system. You simply use the cd and insert the Navigation disk, that disk stays in the cd when you have a multiple cd unit.

We leased a new Lincoln for 3 years and after 2 years a letter came out trying to sell us the upgrade. We did not upgrade, and felt we should have a current map for the remaining year of our lease as we felt we paid for the ability of the Navigation system to do its job the full 3 years. They did not give us an upgrade.

So at 2 year intervals, the Manufacturers will sock you with a $350 bill to keep your Navigation current. Or just use the old maps.

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.

A8 2004 Navigation system not active


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.

Lincoln navigation dvd


On my '06 Navigator the navigation dvd goes in a slot on the console to the left of the passenger's feet. There's a removable panel.

On a side note... does anyone have a newer dvd for Canada? The one that came with my vehicle is compile for the Quebec (*gasp*) market and is outdated.
