I purchased the old civic 02 model 4 years ago, an exec model which came with sat nav,
The car is fab but the sat nav is just out of warranty and stopped working.
When I enter the system the system gives me a read error message. Thinking it was the CD, I borrowed a friends, but the same error message appears.
Could it be a software error, has anyone else seen or heard of this error. The local dealer as offered to run the car over a dignostic test for a fee of £65 but no guarantee they can fix the error, they mentioned fee of £1500 !! if it is broken.
Any help is appreciated

I believe the software is on the DVD - which is why there is a delay (covered up by the Warning message) whilst the system boots up..

The full software - not just the maps - are loaded from dvd everytime you switch on..

so it's probably not a software fault..

Might be a dirty laser - have you tried a cleaning disc? worth a try for the couple of quid they are.

The cleaning disc should sort you out.

It sorted out one of my friends who seemed to have a similar prob.

Try using a CD cleaning disc in the drive.
