#77 of 100 Nav system latest DVD version and manual
Sep 17, 2009 (6:57 pm)
Just purchased a '07 Pacifica with Nav...no disk. From what I understand, I need a disk that is identical to the one it most previously had or one version up (I read you can't skip successive versions without problems). How do I find out what the most recent version used was. All i get on the screen now is "searching for DVD" msg. Is there someway to get to a screen that will give me the information I need? Also does anyone know if the manual is available for download anywhere.

Rads, Thanks for the update. I can't find a radio city on the internet. Is it a store local to you? Please advise. I'm anxious to get my system up and running. Thanks again.

Radio City has several shops in Maine, but they may otherwise be a local car audio shop. I would think that any car radio/audio shop near you should be able to handle it, since CD and DVD players are in their area of interest/service. Try 207-783-9555 (1009 Center St, Auburn ME 04210) If you don't have any luck locally. If you're handy enough to remove your unit and install a refurbished one, they may help. But getting it done locally would probably be better.

Refer to my previous note # 79: I left this project to a car audio shop here in Maine, phone # provided in # 79. I would suggest finding a local car audio shop where you are and turning this over to them for a diagnosis. I don't know where the Chrysler logo is stored, but if your screen is blank maybe they can help decide if it is the DVD (usually is) or something else. Sorry, best I can do. My local Chrysler dealer could have fixed my problem, but at an estimated cost of $1100, hence turning ( in my case) to Radio City.

I would agree with message #81.
I lost my Nav ststem in my 2004 Pac, However, I still had the Chrysler logo and the screen was active - it just said that it could not load the DVD. I went to my selling dealer and the DVD drive unit was replaced under warranty. (I had the extended warranty with a $50.00 deductible.)
My point is that the electronics are now so complicated that your best bet is to bite the bullet and go to a professional, such as the audio store or a Chrysler dealer.

#84 of 100 Uncharted area
Dec 08, 2009 (2:15 pm)
Some times I get a message on my 2006 Nav system that I am entering an area that does not support turn by turn navigation (or something like that). I have a portable Magellan in my other car that does not give that message in the same location. Is there possibly a newer version of the software that I need to purchase to avoid this situation?

I get the same thing, not only on my Pac Nav system but also on my Honda Nav system. The same company sells discs for both systems.
They will be happy to sell you a new DVD for $200.00, that is supposed to be more up-to-date - ? ? ? ? ?.
I bought a $150.00 Tom Tom that does a much better job and is much more up-to-date. I can move the Tom Tom from car to car as well as take it to Florida and use it in a rental.
#86 of 100 Pacifica Navigation upgrade
Dec 16, 2009 (11:49 am)
I recently bought used 2004 chrysler pacifica and navigation system has not been updated by previous owner since he bought the car first time. I know that it costs roughly about $200 to buy 2009 navigation dvd. Is there any other cheaper, reasonable way to download or buy this? Help is really appreciated.
