Please Check Navigation DVD

If you have Navigation option on any of your Audi, you would see the message on the MMI screen “Please Check Navigation DVD” one time or more.

Please Check Navigation DVD

 Today afternoon, it’s 95 degrees F in Northern California, the navigation started to “initalize…” instead of going directly to the destination, then the “Please check navigation DVD” appeared. I reset the MMI (tel + big knob + northeast button together) and it didn’t help. Went to the trunk, the navigation bay was HOT, ejected the DVD and re-inserted, it didn’t help. Put an older 2010 DVD, it came up, but cauldn’t navigate to new address and failed to load old addresses. So it seemed, if we upgraded to 2012-2013 navigation DVD, we can’t use the 2010? Anyhow, came home, open the trunk, let the air to come out the Navigation bay for a while, put back the 2012-2013 DVD in, the MMI read the DVD and asked to upgrade with new software, I let the MMI did its quest and voila, after the software update from the DVD, the navigation is back.

So, it does seem like the navigation DVD doesn’t like heat, and it’s good to keep all the old DVDs, burned a few copies, tried all of them. But it’s the temperature either too cold or too hot, it doesn’t like it.

Don’t just take to the shop, buy new DVD and new player… But if you have the money, try to help the economy, then it’s OK.
