    NAV DVD issues

    I picked up my brand new 997S past Tusday. The car is great and i am extremely pleased with it. When i took delivery, the dealer told me that they don't have the NAV DVD's for the US yes, but they will send in a form (to NAVTEC) on my behalf so i will get the NAV DVD's as soon they are available. He told me that it will take some weeks for the DVD's to be ready.

    To my surprise, FEDEX delivered a package with PORSCHE NAV DVD's today (friday) to my door. i poped one of the dvd's into the NAV DVD slot on the trunk but the 997's PCM continiues to say "Please Insert NAV DVD". i tried all 3 DVD's that came in the package but non of them seems to load.

    now, i am curious what the caus of this malefunction could be. i have several theories:

    * the DVD's delivered to me are not for the 997 PCM. how do i find that out?
    * there is something wrong with my NAV DVD drive (it is very hot, all the time!)
    * i am just to stupid to make it work

    is anybody else experiencing similar issues?

    thanks,

    it's possible that u put the DVD in the center coonsolle CD slot?
    U have to put the DVD in the DVD charger in the front of the car .

    ciaoo!

    There is only ONE disc to cover the U.S. and Canada, If you received 2 or more you got the wrong ones

    Re: NAV DVD issues

    here are some closeup pictures of the DVD set i received for my 997S. are these the same everyone in the US received with their 997?

    The package says "CD" not "DVD" on it. The new NAV system is DVD based and has one DVD for all of USA & Canada. The CDs will not work. Contact NavTec for DVD.

    Re: NAV DVD issues

    I think those are CDs and not the DVD it needs. An easy check would be to place one of them in your computer CD-ROM drive and see if you computer can read the directory. If it reads them then for sure its a CD and not the DVD. If it does not read them, it could mean its a DVD or it is a CD and does not recognize the format.

    Re: NAV DVD issues

    The other users are right, you got the wrong product!
    You need a DVD, not the CD set!

    Re: NAV DVD issues

    did anyone in the US get their 997 with the DVD or do all of us get this mailed by NAVTEC after the delivery of the car? if so, did anyone get the "right" set of DVD's or did everyone get the "wrong" set?

    i talked to my dealer today and he says that i got a CD set for the cayenne. he will order the "right" DVD for my car.

    is it just me, or ist this kind of stupid? they build such a great car, and then, they don't manage to deliver the right DVD with it? what the hell?

    thanks for all the replys,

    I do not understand why its not part of the car accessories delivered to you in the first place. Is this just a US thing or does the ROW also have to wait for their DVD also?

    Re: NAV DVD issues

    These CDs might be patches for the onboard computer of the car or for the PCM itself. Or they could be Navigation CDs for older non-DVD navigation system. So if the CDs say "for 997", most likely they are patches 997's computer system.
