I'm taking my car in on Wednesday for a mini service, so I'll get mine updated then. The service manager should be able to help you out for free if you get to know them. ;)

Has anyone tried to "make a backup" of their 2011 map disk for "archival purposes"? ;)

Worst case scenario, if my dealer doesn't sort it out for me I will try and borrow another members 2011 disk and make an archive of it.

FYI Good software is - Slysoft CloneCD 5.2 and Alcohol 120%

i just stuck a Garmin Nuvo 2640 to my windshield, that thing is awesome. I think I might replace the OEM sat nav with a box of lollies, much more usefull.

So I had a chat to the dealer today and he said he can no longer hand out free upgrades... :(

He did say however that the map CD holds the upgrade data for the unit, so all we need is a 2011 CD ( not mentioning any names or the name of the driver of a black 2011 convertible who wears a hat) and we can just copy it. ;)

I will ask him nicely if he can make a backup of his 2011 DVD and voluteer to store it offsite for him just in case....

Just spoke to my contacts at Dandy and it's not good news :(

Have to buy the maps and they have 'heard' that it can't be burnt..

They are also pretty sure that the 2011 is software download to the unit via the system they use (I forgot the name.. Consult maybe?)

I'll check my 2010 map disc over the weekend.

I reckon they can still be burnt... no reason why they wouldn't be able to.. Heck If I managed to get my dads UK Rover 75 in Greece the latest maps I'm sure these would be easier.

      Looks awesome, these always remind me of someone wearing a cap.  This is heaps cheaper than a US company was asking.  At 300ish its worth a shot.  Put up some photos of it once you've finished finessesing.

      My attempt at fitting it would involve a hammer ,blue tack and no more nails

      Spoiler is from Ebay, currently on special. It does look fantastic, and it's a real carbon fibre, not a vinyl wrap.. Regarding fine adjustments, there is a concern that small fibres may cause complications similar to those of asbestos so I'm getting a full face mask and disposable overalls. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CARBON-FIBER-CS-TYPE-N-STYLE-TRUNK-WING-REAR-SPOILER-FOR-NISSAN-370Z/262399870438

      Looks a pretty damn close fit and so much better than the stock spoiler. Work wheels look great too, very tastefull mods. Got a link to where you ordered your  spoiler from?

      It's a no-name brand, but the quality of workmanship is pretty good. I don't see many classic hand-laid-carbon-fibre faults. It didn't come with any instructions, screws, tape or paper templates. I don't recommend fitting it yourself as it is really time consuming for a beginner (me). But I already started so... OK, trial fitting (screws only). Middle part fits well, the RHS needs minor adjustment (2-4mm) and the LHS needs probably at least several mm. The problem is that it needs to be ground exactly where one of the 4 main screws is. I'll try on the weekend.
