I believe that the 2019/20 update for the Gen2.1 system should be available with in a few weeks, so it would be worth hanging on for a bit and checking the website to see when this becomes available.

The data is usually about 6 months out of date which means this will be good as of about Sept 2018. MY14 HSE Lux Santorini Black

What ever you do DONT use this site

https://satnavupgrade.com/

I had two emails asking about my VIN and then no contact or response to my emails.

I had to claim the money back on my credit card in the end.

2013 Freelander 2 TD4 XS Manual Ipanema Sand
Satnav not functioning.

I have a 2013 Freelander 2 and the satnav has suddenly stopped.
When I try to use it I get the message 'Navigation is initialising. Please wait.' but this message never goes.
I understand this model year was the first to have its satnav integrated into the HDD.
I used it successfully for six years, but no more, it seems.

If your car shuts down before it is completed then the update will restart at the point that it had got to, it does mean that the satnav is not available until the update is completed. I think that it also requires you to shut down at the end of the update so that it can get a clean restart with the new maps. MY14 HSE Lux Santorini Black

Evening, silly question time Embarassed I've a 63 plate and it would be good to update the mapping before a couple of Europe trips we're making in the next year. Am I right in assuming the update comes by way of a disc that I simply upload into the box under the seat? Or is into the CD slot?
See, told you it was a stupid question Very Happy

Hi Sid although mine is USB I believe if you have box under seat that is where disc is inserted Thumbs Up someone will chip in if that's wrong Wink If it wasn't so bad it'd be funny.

Sid,

If you have a box under the drivers seat then you need the DVD update for which a 2019/20 set of discs is available from the satnavidisc site detailed above. If you do not have this then you will need the USB update - and in truth you are better off buying a TomTom or Garmin which will cost you only a little more but will have a more up to date map (and will be regularly updated). MY14 HSE Lux Santorini Black

From memory I think your favourites are kept, but personally I have purchased a new TomTom as it has quarterly updates so it is more up to date and cost me only marginally more than the latest USB update. MY14 HSE Lux Santorini Black
