I was wondering exactly the same thing Given that the update is DVD based and the GTR has no write function on the in car DVD and no data connection back to Nissan I can see no mechanism by which Nissan could limit the application of this update to one user per DVD.

Anyone up for a DVD syndicate?

Only catch would be if each DVD is unique with a serial no. embedded in the update program and then recorded on the black box. Next time you take your car in for service they find the same serial on all GTROC's members cars and empound them all, lol

Can't see the above ringing true though, so I recon a syndicate is the way forward. Don't use my sat nav much but if it's going to cost £20 I might chip in.

I fear NMGB will see this thread and stop sales to customers of discs and make us all them installed at the HPC's

You'd think so wouldn't you, but that really is why I'm asking here.

Then take away your discs and put them in the cupboard?

Alternatively and hopefully they are reading this, they could charge a reasonable price for them and sell 10x as many?

Seems like someone should buy the upgrade and make some personal backups of the discs then mislay them at the next GTR meet

Yes, any UK model with SatNav, I believe it also covers Europen cars as well.

So I assumed it was referring to an update of non-nav to with-nav.

We must be down to £30 to £40 each now assuming everyone who said yes here is up for it

Being charitable to Nissan perhaps they have to pay Navteq a licence fee for each update they process and thus are unable to offer the update free of charge at the HPC even if they want to.

If not and I ran a HPC I would be offering a free Nav upgrade to any service customer who didn't bring in their own oil

Could work out even cheaper if you then popped the original on Ebay to recoup some of the cost.

Do you know how up to date they are?

I hope the discs are write protected - my old M5 DVD system allowed you to update using £15 copies from fleabay!!

And the problem is?
