    Default Up to date CD for Satnav

    Just bought a 2008 Vectra Design. Satnav disc is out of date and the dealer wants £99.99 for an up todate one. Nearly as cheap to buy a new Satnav, (TomTom) Is there a cheaper way?

    If you were looking at new CD from dealer you could always claw some cash back on eBay, the 2005 onwards ones seem to go for a price.

    Navteq do them for 89.99 I think ..... I'm looking for a newer map so thanks for the heads up on dealer price.

    There are perfectly genuine ones on ebay every now and again. Don't use copy ones as a dodgy one could end up half installing itself

    The map CD's dont install all it does is read from it.

    The firmware one on the other hand does and genuine is about £7 from Vauxhall.

    Well it's not so much half installing as much as it could mess up the unit. Not saying it will and you quite probably can use copied discs but A:Would you want to take the risk B:it's illegal and C: it's against the rules to discuss copying copyrighted material on here

    If you own the original its legal to copy it yourself so if the copied one does get damaged you can still burn another copy off and yes you need to leave the map cd in all the time.
