Question UK Spec X-Trail Sat Nav Disc Query

Hi

I have a 55 plate X Trail with Sat Nav. I am looking to upgrade the version of disc that came from factory with the vehicle. Can anyone advise on the following:

1. Does the disc which came standard cover just the UK or does it include Europe (not been across to Europe so can't see if it does). The blue DVD disc is a NAVTEQ 2004/2005 version with a map of the UK and the rest of Europe printed on the front, or is this slightly misleading?

2. I am looking to upgrade to the latest version (assume 07/08). I have heard that these new discs are green in colour. Also can I just insert newer version DVD disc into my single tray DVD/ROM sat nav system without the need for re-programming my system with a set up disc etc.

Are there any Nissan employees or techs out there who will know?

Many thanks

Hello,

My 2006 X_Trail(second hand) was delivered without the DVD, possibly stolen or lost.

The dealer sent me a new one 2006 violet.

The package consist in one CD for updating the firmware and the DVD.

Presently, the CD won't work when old 2005 DVD is OK.

I have to come back to the dealer to solve the problem, may be the Sat Nav itself is defective.

Hi SPM1801,

To check whether your sat-nav covers Europe, just press the minus (-) button continually. The map will zoom out to show the limits of it's coverage. My 55 reg. X-Trail's sat-nav does indeed cover the whole of Europe, but is not as up-to-date as my wife's TomTom (which is a year older and not updated!). We do use the X-trail to wander around Europe and prefer to use the TomTom as it does not lead us up so many non-existant roads.

For the cost of updating your Nissan system, you could buy a better and cheaper complete system which would be easier and cheaper to update in the future. Just a thought.

(Edit. Just added this bit: My X-Trail's sat-nav will not compute a route from Somerset to, say, Rome in one go. You have to drive to mid France before it will compute the rest of the route. The problem here is this. Do you select a spot in France north of Paris then continue through Switzerland? or do you go south and avoid the Swiss? You will need to study a separate map to decide. The TomTom computes a route for the whole journey in one go. A much better idea.)

Happy X-ing,
Roger.

I have the 2007 version of this disc and have used it quite successfully in the UK and France, all I did was program the journey to the channel crossing and then changed the map view to the other country and programmed from the french end of the crossing

Hi HTH

It looks like the 2007 version that you have is the same as mine, that is, it will not compute the whole journey in one go. This is not very good from a system that costs so much money, I would at least expect it to equal the much cheaper TomTom if not beat it considering the considerable difference in price. I know that if I ever buy another X-Trail (and I probably will) it will not have Nissan's sat-nav, I will use one from an independant maker.

Have fun
Roger.

Hi all,

I've just bought the latest version of the sat nav DVD from ebay for the princely sum of £25! Just a bit cheaper than the dealer quoted price of £551. One concern I do have is whether I should be expecting the updated DVD AND some sort of programme CD. Dealership reckon just the DVD, but I've read about this programme CD in a number of threads on here and elsewhere.

Any ideas much appreciated.

Thanks,

Ed.

I am afraid if the CD for updating the firmware is not bundled it's £25 lost!
I understand the CD is needed each time one want to upgrade to newer version. That's very common in PC world to do that way.

My DVD 2006 won't work when the DVD 2005 that came along with my 2006 XT is OK.

I understand the £25 offer is hacked from original DVD. I have dual layer DVD burner in my PC and it seems possible to copy it.....at least for safety purpose.
Problem is the CD in question is delivered when buying new DVD version only. it is not present when buying new car as usless. May be the hacker could copy the DVD, not the CD.

Just thought I'd update anyone who had an interest in this thread...

DVD arrived today, so I trudged my way to the car expecting it not to work...but lo and behold, it did! Absolutely no problems whatsover. Even retained my saved destinations.

For those that might be interested in doing the same, I drive a January 2006 Aventura with Birdview sat nav and this is the disc I purchased from ebay. If that link doesn't work, the part number is 25920 JG47A - the version info on the sat nav itself shows 07/08 version.

Cheers,

Ed.

Excellent information eallin that puzzles me!

I suppose we have the same sat nav unit.

Would you be kind to let me know what was mentionned on the original DVD sold with the your car.

I'd like to finalize discussions with my local agent who said there are différent designs, the dealer of the package CD+DVD sent you the wrong one. The last said the package is OK.

Cheers

Hi Trifon,

Details on the original disc are:

* Map version code EOE 314R
* 25920 EA25A (I believe this is the part number)
* DVM-1401E (not sure what this is)
* Disc shows copyright 2004 and 2005 and if I remember correctly the sat nav shows 04/05 version.

Hope this helps!

Ed.

yeah, mine took a week to arrive, but can't fault the product or the price. I still can't believe Nissan want to charge £551!

Hey eallin
I got my disc today but every time i try to load it i get a disc error message. Was wondering what year your x-trail is and what model . The last upgrade i did also came with a program disc and wondered if i needed one for this version . The last upgrade was a copy that i got from e-bay so i thought if anything that one would not work.

It would be great if some one could post a list of disc numbers / disc colour / year / and program disc's required

Hey Longleaf,

Sorry to hear that. Mine is a Jan 2006 Aventura and I did nothing more than eject the disc at the "I Agree..." message, then insert the new one. It took a couple of minutes to load, then all was back to normal.

In terms of numbers and colours, etc. The original disc (details above) was blue and the new one (details in the ebay link) is green.

Cheers,

Ed.

Can't supply a list but I know that when the 'T-Spec' changed to 'Aventura' (2006), the sat-nav program changed. Not sure if the hardware changed too, but the hype at the time was that the system was from the Pathfinder.
