I live in Houston and would like to update my city maps on my 996 C2 conv.MY2000. I understand from the dealer in Houston that I could get updates somewhere in the web. He said ebay. Sorry I'm new on this, but does anyone know where to go to get an update version for my GPS system. Based on what I read, it seems mine carries the PCM1 version.

Unfortunately you maybe out of luck. I have a 2001 Boxster S with PCM1. I was missing the disc that covered my state. Last summer I ordered it from Navtech. At that time they said they had the discs, but they older ones weren't being updated. No worries, I just wanted a disc that worked. Now, not a year later Porsche and Navtech no longer have a relationship. Getting a replacement disc is near impossible for the older systems. There is Ebay, if you are lucky, or the discs will copy if you can find someone with the area you need. I keep the copy in my Boxster and the original at home.

Do you have the disc for your location? If so that is a good thing since at least it will function. I use mine on trips and find that for freeway driving and most cities it works well for 8 year old technology. Its when you get into rural and new subdivisions that it runs out of gas.

The best upgrade you can get is a new nav system like a Tom Tom, etc. Plus they are cheaper than the disc was!

Wish there was a better answer.
