2008 Yukon Denali map dvd doesn't work. It keeps saying "DISC INSTALLED IN NOT A MAP DISC". How come?


All you have to do to remove the disc and press the MENU button on the right side of the touch screen and choose the NAV option to change the search area/database. One of the choices is to eject the disc. Good Luck.

Not too computer literit. Tomtom has taken me to a bridge that has been closed for a year. Tried an address and it took me to an open field(twice). Purchased it in Dec. '08 i would think it would have...


From the navigation screen (first one you normally get after power on) touch the map part of the screen; more options (right arrow); Map corrections; Correct a map error; (Un)block a street; On Map; find the bridge on the map and touch that location; Done; touch Eastbound; touch Westbound (or similar words) so they now indicate as blocked; Yes (confirm change is permanent).

The Satnav should no longer use that bridge in attempting to calculate a route.

Hope that helps.

Installing the DVD Map Disc Your dealer/retailer may have installed the map DVD. If the map DVD was not installed, do the following to load it:
Read the following steps completely.
  1. Turn the ignition on. The vehicle must be in P (Park) to perform this operation.
  2. Press (power) to turn the navigation system on.
  3. Press the NAV hard key.
  4. Touch the Insert Map Disc screen button. The screen opens to access the map DVD slot.
  5. Load the map DVD partway into the slot. The system pulls it in. The screen cannot be closed until a double beep is heard.
    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  6. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
  7. Set the search area. See "Setting the Search Area" earlier in this section.
Ejecting the DVD Map Disc The navigation portion of the system cannot be used if the DVD map disc is not loaded.
  1. Press the MENU key to enter the Menu options, then press the MENU key repeatedly until Nav is selected or touch the Nav screen button.

    Notice: Pressing directly on the navigation screen may cause damage. Repairs would not be covered by the vehicle's warranty. Do not press directly on the navigation screen.
  5. To close the screen, slightly push up on the two outer corners until the screen is in position. Then push the screen in by pushing on the four outer corners until a click is heard.
