Hello, first, thanks for the reply. I checked the software version and here's what I found: PCM... Target: 05395BD1/4505 05024ED1/4705 Actual: 05395BD1/4505 Entered: Yes Found: Yes Systems Software... Target: 05462AD1/4605 04514BD1/5104 Actual: 05462AD1/4605 Entered: Yes Found: Yes Navigation System... Target: / Actual: 00179434/0606 00179412/5004 Entered: Yes Found: Yes I noticed that the 'Target' info is missing for the Navigation System. Does that mean something? Thanks in advance. I made an appt with my local Porsche dealer this week so hopefully I will get this thing resolved. Posted my values next to yours. Hope it helps. FWIW I used to like my Porsche NAV system after this weekend in N. Ga I will be using my Portable Garmin in the Future. It is much better. I did not have a Target value for the Nav system also. Thanks for sharing the values of your nav software! That gives me a lot of info to take with me to the dealer tomorrow morning. Sounds like I don't have a lot to look forward to once I do get the nav system working. I also have a Garmin Nuvi, but was hoping that I would have to stick that on my windshield. Seems crazy that Porsche can't put in a decent navigation system on a $90k+ car. My wife and I have a 01 Range Rover and a 05 Toyota Prius and both have navigation systems. The Range Rover's nav is kind of lame but the Prius' nav is terrific -- way better than the Garmin Nuvi 660 or 350. My point is that the Prius is a $25k car and they put an awesome nav system in it. Maybe Porsche's strategy is that it's not about getting to your destination... it's about the drive getting there, even if you get lost.

Mu 2006 has the following; 04.2005 997.642.257.02 7L3.919.859.AC It came out of another car on the floor as my car didn't have one either. I bought my car used with 5,000 miles on it from the dealer in 06. ___________ Thank you for letting me know what your version of the Nav disc is for your 2006. It's clearly different than the one they ordered for me. I've been trying to get the Porsche dealer to order me the same one (that you have) but they keep insisting that the one they sent me is the right one. I now have to take it into my local Porsche dealer to see what they say. Thanks again.
Model year: 2006 Body Style: C2S Cabriolet Transmission: 6 speed Country: U.S. I purchased my 997 used from Santa Barbara Porsche a couple weeks ago with 3,800 miles on it. When I went to pick it up, the Navigation DVD was missing, so their parts department ordered one and shipped it to me. The Navigation DVD I received from Porsche (OEM manuf. part #000 044 900 89, 995 044 900 08, T1000-9894, Version 08.2005, PCM DVD-Navigation North America). After I inserted the DVD into into the Navigation system (yes, checked to make sure I instered it the label side up), and attempted to use the Navigation system, I immediately got an error message that read ""incompatable Navigation DVD". My research tells me that there are other versions of the Nav DVD available... 1) OEM manuf. part #997 642 257 02, 7L5.919.859.AC, Version 04.2005, North America 2) OEM manuf. part #997.642.257.03, 7L5.919.859.AL, Version 05.2006, North America How do I find out if I have the correct version of the Nav DVD for my 997? Is the problem the wrong version of the Navigation DVD itself or is it that I have to have my PCM updated with some new firmware? I've read through many of the articles in this forum, but I'm still at a loss for what to do. If the problem is that I have a newer version of the Nav DVD than what my system expects, I don't understand why my Porsche dealer's part's department would have ordered the wrong item in the first place. Thanks in advance!
