    Ford Sat-Nav discs. Where to buy? 1st Feb 08 at 9:30 PM
    Hi everyone, I'm a long-time lurker but this is my first post. I posted this question on various specialised Ford and motoring forums back in December, but didn't get a response. Now it's time to see if the Money Saving Experts really can save me some money!

    I have a 2004/53 plate Ford Mondeo and the sat-nav is now woefully out of date. It doesn't even have the M6-Toll on it! I've been looking at navigation discs on Ebay, and they look much more reasonable than the 280 the dealer wants. However, there are a lot of copies floating about. Also, some of the auctions mention that the update disc (a separate software upgrade required for the newer discs to work) only works on 2005-2007 cars, and not on the earlier Denso naviagation units. I checked the "secret menu" detailed on http://solesz.extra.hu/ and it looks like I have the older unit (Ford Part No. 3S7T 10E887 AG, Denso Part No. 462100-8256).

    If the new discs really don't work on the old system, what are my options for upgrading? Can you buy the discs directly from someone else, or am I left being robbed blind by Ford? For nearly 300 I could get a whole new satnav system!

    Thanks for your help in advance. For good measure, I've cross-posted this in the techie forum. I hope the mods don't mind!

    Cheers,

    Rob
