I just received my free updated nav disc for my 05 XLR. The one that came in the car was a version 5.0 and the new one is version 6.0. If anyone has an older XLR and has the original 4.0 version, and would like to have the 5.0 version, let me know. Its cheaper than the $199 they want to buy an upgrade. Jim

The 2006 Cadillacs come with the first 2 years navigation disc upgrades. About the anniversary date of your purchase, they send you a card and you call in to get the new nav disc sent to you. I purchased my 2006 XLR in 12/05 and in 12/06 I was notified that my first free update was available. I just called in, gave them my VIN and they mailed me the new one. For Cadillacs prior to 2006 they offer to sell you the updated disc for $199. Many of the earlier XLRs had version 4.0. If you have an early 2005 you may have that version. Just pull the disc out and it is marked on the face.

Thanks for the 06 in March

Thanks again for the 06 upgrade in March.
Shall I remind you in March? or you can just send it to me.
I'm in the magnet business, if you send me your address, I'll send you some magnet samples. Fun for the kids.

Chas,
You are the only one with an e-mail address in your thread at hotmail so I will remember. When I order it, I will e-mail you and get your address. No need to send magnets. This is a gift that keeps giving if you know what I mean. (find someone to rip some disc's and share them with members for free)
Bob, It's officially yours

Question? Does the 2005 XLR disc. show the name of the street you are on in bold type on the bottom of the map. I do not mean the listing on the map, it is seperate of the map. I would love to get that feature.

5.0 Nav disc is now available

Chas,
Let me have your address so I can send you the 5.0 Disc. I tried to send you a private message but sometimes people don't get them or they don't notice that they have a private message.

Jim,
I have an 04 Neiman Marcus and I guess that the Nav Disc is an older version. How can I upgrade without buying one for $199?

Bill, Find someone on the forum who bought an 06 XLR. When they get their free upgrade in 2007 get their old one. The 2006 model should have verson 5.0 and would be newer than the version that came with your car. Hopefully there is a forum member that has the ability to duplicate the disc and make them available to members so they don't have to pay the $199 for the upgrade. Jim
