Has anyone gotten the latest map DVDs from Volvo.

I just read somewhere that the DVDs also come with a new software which updates the maps with 3D and much nicer appearance and ease of use.

Can anyone chime in on that? I have an 08 vehicle with 07 maps.

These appear to be the latest 2014 maps.
We have an 05 V8 with DVD based Nav (worst ever...) Last year in a fit of weakness, I bought the 2014 Nav DVD update, because I thought that the graphics would have changed. Apparently I was wrong, or perhaps I failed to find which disc has the system updater on it. It still sucks, just now 2014 style. Usually I rely on my iPhone and Waze, or Google maps etc.

The nav system changed between the 06 and 07 model year. The 07+ is a much better unit with a faster processor, and a hard drive. The entire contents of the DVD is downloaded to the hard drive to make for fast navigation course corrections and overall routing. The graphics are also better and more features are provided.

You are right that the new disc will give you all new more modern menus and 3D maps. I use the factory nav in my 07 XC90 (with 2014 Maps) almost every day. Same with my S80 which uses the same system. With the updated maps and firmware, it's a great system and is intuitive to use once you get the hang of the steering wheel controls. The updated disc is the best money you'll spend on the car!

Bump! Just purchased a 2009 3.2l and was curious about the same thing. I'd love to see a picture if someone could take one.

Very Informative page from last year on the UK site. Didnt need them but It would have been useful to give the part numbers for the associated boxes that were installed for each model.
