Jhowkins posted about a special deal on new DVDs. It was awhile ago so chances are its over. The maps are stored on DVD, so you just need a new DVD. Which aren't' cheap, I wonder if you can burn your own...

Try downloading off of torrents? (Sure it's illegal, but so should charging $200...) Just don't get caught downloading!

Good site is thepiratebay.org search Honda Navigation or something.

I was wondering about burning the DVD myself. It turns out many people have tried over at cdfreaks.cc, without success I might add.

However, it looks like a small group figured out that only certain brand DVD+R discs are able to read, if you change the booktype of the DVD from "DVD-R" to "DVD-ROM"

As for torrents... they don't exist. At least they aren't tracked at any of the popular torrent trackers.

I haven't done this yet, but I'll be sure to post some more info on what exactly I did you do it. I was hoping to tweak the software a bit so I could run modified (UPDATED!!!) software and maps, yadda yadda...

Let me know if anyone has Navi Disc V3.70 and would be willing to send me an ISO copy of it.

Thanks

Actually, Alpine is responsible for the updates. The best suggestion I have to add something to the map is to go to Navteq and submit it directly to them. Alpine uses their map data on the navigation dvds, so if you submit it to them - the update will eventually find its way onto one of the next updates. If you're wondering, updates typically occur annually (once per year) and are released in the fall.

Here are some of the things you can update....

Choose from list:





Address[/align]



address is missing


address appears in the wrong location


address should be removed

Point of Interest (POI) (bank, store, etc.)[/align]Business Owners: See our Direct Access program to regularly keep your POIs up-to-date [/align]



POI is missing


POI has incorrect details (location,category,phone number,etc.)


POI should be removed


Road and Road Feature[/align]



road is missing


road is in the wrong place or has the wrong shape


road should be removed


road name is missing or wrong

Traffic Restriction[/align]



add restriction


incorrect restriction


remove restriction
