Navigation cd"s

I just purchased a 2007 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT and discovered there were no navigation CD's. Am I looking for a set of CD's covering the USA or just one CD covering the USA? The dealer says he will get me a navigation CD. Please explain what I will need and approximate cost. On Ebay I see different Cd's listed for different groups of states in the USA but not just one CD covering the whole USA. Please elaborate, thank you.

cd's

I'm a total noob, just getting my QP 2 days ago. However, I am pretty sure on this. There is no "CD". It is a book of CD's as you described. Also, it is unfortunate, but I don't believe there is any upgrade CD meaning you cannot get a new CD that has addresses created after your CD. So, I would just buy the CD you need for your area.

I believe most people say just scrap the idea all together, and add a single CD slot for your music, and by a garmin or equivalent.

I would hope to be corrected on this, but so far, this is what I have read.

I bought an '07 QP last year and like both of you I discovered navi cd's were missing. I felt a burning need to get them and make the car 'complete'. I was fortunate to find a set for sale by a member here and bought them.

Unlike my Honda Ridgeline that has a single navi CD, these cars have a collection of CD'.s For example the CD I used covers FL, GA, SC, AL, etc - several of the southeastern states. The full set is a collection of CD's that break US up in to 7-8 CDs (not a single DVD). That is why you'll see single CD's for sale on eBay. Sellers keep the CD for their area and unload the rest. All that said - I'm happy to sell you my set of CD's. I bought them, installed the FL CD, and after seeing how amateur the resolution and outdated these are with relation to new road construction - they are absolutely useless. I've never used a single one other than the day they arrived to see how it worked. Once you do install a cd, figuring out how to navigate and enter an address is arguably the worst user interface I've ever encountered. I use my iPhone and Google's Map's with free turn-by-turn voice directions. My advice - find something much cooler to spend money on like LED lights for the footwells, courtesy lights, under mirror lights, etc and replace those yellowish factory bulbs.

Current Garage:
07 QP EX GT/Grigio Touring Metallic/Nero
08 Honda Ridgeline/Sliver/Gray

Sold but not forgotten:
91 Acura NSX/Formula Red/White (not sure what the name of that white leather was)
03 BMW M3/Leguna Seca Blue/Gray

Had the same problem and connected with a guyin California on eBay. Seems thesecars are exported to Asia and the Nav CDs are removed and made for sale. They are open to a price for a group of them as they are not available from the dealer or Nav Teq who made them Agree the system is lousy and when I really have to find something I use my trusty Garmin Nuvi with free lifetime updates.

I hope someone reads this before they purchase them, but IMHO you are wasting your money. The NAV is absolutely crap! You'll probably not use it it more than the first or second time. Get yourself a phone mount and use your mobile for the NAV. You'll be better off!

I bought the whole set and now I have a ton of discs that I don't need. SO, if anybody wants a disc for a region that I'm not using, hit me up..I'll cut you a sweet deal!

Has anyone taken a look at the nav data format? It might be possible to create very up-to-date nav CDs based on current data. Need to know the format to burn the disks though.

Cool Gps

I did find a seller on eBay and bought all discs. They are marginal in use. My solution was to get a GARMIN Nuvi with Bluetooth. I mounted it above and to left go in dash system using a STEELIE MAGNETIC BALL MOUNT. The result is great. I run cord to rear cigar lighter outlet". STEELIE uses 3m adhesive and comes off wood veneer with no problem

Also did stalk Sirius unit that mounts into front lighter. Purchased a kit to wire it and iPhone betwee CD player and radio.

If you need contact me 865-386-1216

Suggest forgetting about it as they are useless. Nav system on the cart is crap. Get a NUVI Garmin and use a Steelie Ball mount (magnetic) and since it uses 3M adhesive can be removed without harm wood veneer. Looks great and is way better than anything
