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.

    • ESCL ekectronic steelring lock

      If I remember correctly there was a recall here in Aus as well but only for certain series of that part number. I would demand to talk to the dealer principal rather than some service monkey that knows nothing but how to extract cash from loyal customers and demand the part be replaced (possibly costing labour which is fair) for a known faulty part that was subject to a nationwide recall. Search this forum for more info on the recall. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

      Ummmm !! Experienced the 'No start' and the orange key light.  2012 model 370Z. Tried the hammer trick, tried it again and again and again and eventually it released. Leave the accessory light on and removed the fuse. Car starts OK now. Quote from Nissan for a new ESCL(electronic Steering Control Lock) is $1,580.13 plus GST plus labour.

      Contact your local clutch specialist If you need to replace the flywheel that will really hurt - aftermarket flywheels are cheaper but also make unpleasant noise

      The last few times ive called nissan dealers, they’ve asked for the part numbers (being nismo or non-nismo) and they didnt have an issue selling me those parts. I did decline cause for a set of 2012 nismo wheels ended up costing 2k a wheel ?! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
