PCM1 Nav Disc's Needed

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping someone can help me. I have recently purchased a 2000 996 C2 with PCM. The car was from California and the previous owner only had disc 1 CA/NV. I live in MO so I need disc 3. I contacted my local dealer and he is unable to get the disc. I contacted NavTech and like others, I was told sorry they no longer support Porsche and do not have any NOS disc they can provide. I contacted PCNA and the girl I spoke with was very nice and tried to find a set of disc's for me but was unsuccessful.

I read a post some where that someone had their MY 2000 firmware updated to be able to use the last set of disc’s issued for PCM 1, the 2003.1 disc (PCM 1 7 disc set). I was able to find a 2003.1 disc on e-bay and my dealer thought they would be able to flash my firmware but they didn't have the firmware upgrade disc and have been unable to get a copy through PCNA.

So, does anyone have a set of 2001.1 disc's that they would be willing to part with or copy for me?

Here is the information from my PCM:







The disc I have that reads and boots is a 2001-1

My 2001 Boxster S I purchased last year only had Disc 1 (California and Nevada). I called NavTeq and was able to purchase Disc 2 for the Northwest and Mountain States. That was last July. I could have purchased the entire USA (actually a better deal) but I didn't see the need. They told me the updates were no longer being done. Honestly a Tom Tom or Garmin is better, but that doesn't make the Nav system in the car work! The disc cost $149.00. I got it, copied it, and use the copy in the car and keep the original on the book case. Works perfectly.

Try this is case it is different than what you had:

"If you have any questions please call us Toll-Free at 888-628-6277 or e-mail us at NABC_English@navteq.com This is an outbound message only - you cannot reply to it. Please call our customer call center at 888-NAV-MAPS (888-628-6277) if there is anything else we can help you with."

Also, its NAVTEQ, not navtech just to make certain you end up in the correct spot.

Cheers and keep me posted,

Thanks for the reply Navtech and Navteq are one in the same. They changed their name from Navigation Technologies (Navtech) to Navteq when they went public in 2004. For the trivia buffs, they are now owned by Nokia. The buyout by Nokia closed last fall and that seems to be when they stopped helping Porsche owners all together.

They stopped updating these years ago, so even if you find some discs they will be way out of date. I bought a Garmin a few years ago but I hav even stopped using that ($80+ a year for updates). I use my smart phone that has navigation, voice etc. and updates constantly and is free (except for the phone).
