    I want to update my sat nav to the latest disk possible in my 2011 car.

    If any original disks are for sale at a reasonable price, I would be interested

    Thanks

    Tim

    I got my Honda DVD discs from ebay and not had any bother. I think the disc was for 2016-17.

    If you're looking for the V3 map discs, I bought mine here...

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OEM-LATE...514700?hash=item5d81418a8c:g:jvkAAOSwpspbittV

    Now whilst they are cheap... I was worried that they were a cheap knock off copy... However after inspecting the disc that arrived, I cannot find anything to make me suspect it's not genuine. The writing matches my original 2007 disc, I can see no errors and faults with the printed side and the written side does not show any of the expected marks from writing.

    Looks like prices have dropped too, I paid £23 for mine... Seller claims they are OEM, and I cannot find any reason to counter that claim... Mine has been running in my satnav for almost 6 months now.

    Thanks
    I have placed an order.
    Is there a special process for updating from my current 2011 dvd or do I simply put the new disc into the dvd drive in the boot and turn on the car ?

    Thanks for your help

    Just pop the disc out and put the new one in, turn the ignition on but don't start it... wait for the satnav to update and reboot before starting the car... If you interrupt the flashing process it'll bork your unit.

    The disc arrive and updated without issue
    Seems to work fine so far so really happy!
    The reflective surface of the new disk is a slightly different colour , the old disc had a gold tint whereas this one is silver, but the disc seems to read fine

    I also noticed that the mapping is produced by a different company “here” rather than “navteq” but looks fine on the screen and some more poi’s have appeared than I had before

    Thanks for recommending and Best regards
    Tim

    They took over a few years ago.

    That could explain why we've still got new maps coming out 12yrs after they started with the V3 systems, and also why they're a lot cheaper now... Long may it continue... if they release 2019 maps, I may update again at those prices.
