    on the oem 2007 unit, probably have to replace the nav disc with a more recent one, probably ebay is going to be your best bet

    The last update for the older Pre-2012 navigation units was 2016. Better than 2007 but getting out of date. Someone has got to make an update or a crack to use another disc but I have not discovered it yet.

    For about the same cost of a new disc, I would get a Garmin. Unlike a disc, you can get updates. A good alternative to using your phone.

    That's really cool. I'm a stickler for working with the OEM, would like to figure a way to keep the stock nav unit up to date. Anyone know what kind of software it runs?

    I like OEM as well. That being said, I had been on the same quest as you since 2009 and this was the most value added solution I could find. It all started when my ‘07 kept having to go into “off-road” mode due to numerous new bi-passes in HWY 30 in eastern and central Iowa. I was so glad when they went away from the NAV DVD.

    Well, at one time I figured to upgrade to the 2012 system, it is supposed to be hard drive based as it does not have a flip up screen like ours for the Nav Disc, are those still upgradeable to current year?

    Since my phone is now mounted in a cup-holder mount, I sometimes use Waze with it.

    I think so. Just upgraded to a 2013 at the beginning of last month. Haven’t nailed that down though.
