    navigation system

    have a 2004 turbo cayenne and it seems cannot updte the CD based nav software, any ideas

    Re: navigation system

    This has been discussed here and at other Cayenne boards and I have yet to read that anyone has come up with a solution. At this point there does not seem to be anyway to update the 2003 - 2004 systems.

    Re: navigation system

    I called my dealer about updating the navigation and what I was tolled was that as far as the software they no nothing but the cd will be soon available (already out for the dvd nav). That's for the Greek version

    Re: navigation system

    I guess my feeling is Porsche has a responsibility to keep the software current for at least 5 years. They seemed to have changed the system over in 2005 to a DVD based system and I think have updated that system and left everyone with the CD systems up the creek with no paddle shame on Porsche

    Re: navigation system

    See my other threads in the "other" forum. CD based navigation not only has sparse data, but it has a major design flaw that resides in the data and in the hardware. So far, my dealer says nothing will ever be done to fix it (in the US). Their fix was to go to DVD based navigation. A retrofit under warranty is out of the question, although it is obvioulsy what Porsche should do on a $100k car still under warranty...

    Re: navigation system

    I agree with you, I have lodged a formal complaint with Porsche. What are the flaws?

    Re: navigation system

    All much agreed here too.
    I have had extensive posts on other forums adressing these very issues.
    I even tried to rally others to write letters into PCNA and alot have already.
    There are thousands of Cayenne owners and other P-car owners in addition that are negatively affected by this.

    Navteq has the data, they utilize the data on other model CD based systems (BMW, Land Rover, Merc, etc.) so it is not their issue. I have contacted them countless time, and they just need a "go ahead" from Porsche to execute.

    I am assuming that others would be willing to pay the normal $199.00 for an upgraded CD set - so Porsche and Navteq have a handsome profit with at least 20-30,000 nationwide owners needing current map data.
    Just count the sales of '03, '04 Cayennes, and add to that the many other models that had CD nav system and this number far exceeds the 30,000 mark and translates to a handsome profit for just a little effort.
