I think the newest navigation update for PCM 3.0 is using the new "model year A" maps. Your system version must be V1.40 or higher. If the system is lower PCM3.0 must be updated using the system software PCM3.0 V1.4 update CD.

The part number for the update is 955 044 905 41

thank you. wow, looked it up in PET - pricey. that is the CD that was sold by Suncoast i think but i missed it and they sell it no furhter.

PCM was upgraded by dealer to v1.40 , i also separately bought DVD with 2009 maps (the one that states on the cover "do not give to customer"). me being silly thought that now i can just put 30 Euro DVD into upgraded PCM and have my maps upgraded, but...:(

PCM gave a message that "database is not enabled or something like that " and spat out DVD. Does anybody know what the story is. Do I have to get some code every time to upgrade maps?

BTW. upgrade firmaware to 1.40 didnt solve a problem of PCM switching off for no reason

Is the process not that, if the car is equipped with a PCM 3.0 HIGH system (voice control/40GB hard drive/TV/etc.), the unit becomes updated with a PIWIS subject a payment? I never did it, cause there was no update available at that time.
