Re: 2008 XC70 Sat Nav (James748S)

Oh dear...<p>That is exactly why I didn't go for the inbuilt Nav system. I hate getting ripped off for updates. The $400 or so BMW quoted me in the past seem like a bargain.<p>It cost AU$80 all up to get a turn by turn Navigation application for my iPhone and that included the latest whereis maps. If the developers sell the app including the same data you need (but in a different format) for $80, just what is the markup on that price you have been quoted ?<p>I am afraid your only alternative is illegal...<p>

Re: 2008 XC70 Sat Nav (notthestig)

I bought the latest DVD:s and software (to my S80) a few weeks ago. 3D-navigation, speed cameras + a lot more = ~1800SEK

Hi James748S,<p>That does sound steep mate, I went into Bilia Volvo in Hawthorn (VIC) about 4 months ago and quoted me around $600. What version (Whereis) do you have, it may already be the latest available?<p>Cheers,<p>Georgea.

Re: 2008 XC70 Sat Nav (Swiper)

Hi,<p>We got the VNS as part of a package, since the car is now 14 months old I assumed that there must be an update avaialble. Also there have been a lot of upgraded road works and new developments up here that currently are not shown.<br>I have GPS on my phone which actually works well, but I am a fan of how easy the Volvo system is to use. Suppose I just make do with this system!<p>cheers,
