I bought the 2009/2010 Nav Update DVDs directly from Navteq and they just arrived.<p>I thought $200 was fair considering 4 years of updates.<p>Can't wait to try it out on the drive home from work.<p>I will give an update later this evening.

Re: Bought the 2009/2010 Nav Updates (jwg)

Im interested to hear what you find. I have the 2008 update that the previous owner purchased and updated before i got the car from him and it seems to be working pretty well for me. There are some simple quirks about the NAV that i dont like but im getting used to it. I had a hard time finding "newport Beach" when I was on my way to LA last week!! It wasnt that user friendly but i figured it out! Had to locate an ATM to get close lol<p>

Well it was obviously very simple to install, it took a few minutes for the satellites to sync.<p>So definitely more points of interest, graphics identical, one thing I really miss it doesn't say what side of the road the destination is on. I really liked that.<p>So far I would say worth it, it was only $228 shipped and now is as current as any Garmin. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

wow, it doesn't say that? Kinda sucky. On the disc it actually says the exact snapshot of the data. My 2007 discs say 2006Q3....what does yours say?

Interesting it says Q3 2008 which is obviously not 2009. But better than 2005!!<p>

I still want to know if my Nav computer from my XC90 will work in my R. I would love to just update the whole system. Not to mention my XC90 gets a couple free map updates. Just another thing to put on the To-Do list.

No, it wont. The new systems use a completely digital bus called MOST and the Rs use the older MELBUS interface so you would not get any audio out of it.

Probably not worth trying to work around it then. At least I know.
