Hi Guys,

I finally got hold of the owner's manual for my Sat Nav car - specifically including the Sat Nav - the standard one (without Sat Nav) was delivered when I collected my car. I was very sad to see that the way of uploading new map / speed camera info is to take your car to a Nissan dealer and get them to do it - it also implies that you will be charged for this. I thought that i'd just be able to download the latest versions from the internet and upload them myself - rather like you can with many of the aftermarket handhelds.

I am pretty disappointed because in my view it would be a necessity to get and keep all the speed camera information as upto date as possible - especially in a high performance car such as the GT-R.:bawling:

What do you guys think of this?

No different to any other manufacturers nav systems.

£260 for a yearly update disc for my Merc,

That's why I have a TomTom, Roadpilot Micro, and a non-nav car.. :)

Jealousy will get you nowhere!

PS the camera database on the car is not 100% complete - i have driven past 3 fixed sites over 6 months old that are not on the system.
Ha ha ha!

Am I that obvious!? :D

Isn't that the point? Surely you should be able to upload the latest camera info yourself.
No manufacturer systems allow that. They usually all update data via annual or semi-annual update discs. I've bought a few from BMW over the years at about £100-£180 each (depending if they have a special deal on).

The functionality for updates is built into hand-helds because they are portable, so can easily be plugged into PCs (unlike cars). They are also often marketed on their camera detection ability, the GTR wasn't so it's just a bonus feature in the way it is there.
