Thread: 9-5 touchscreen sat-nav update

    9-5 touchscreen sat-nav update

    There seems to be a fair amount of confusion about sat-nav update disks and which other-makes disks will work in the various SAAB models.
    I have a 2008MY 9-5 Aero Turbo Edition Estate with the Denso Touchscreen unit (CD slot at top, volume knob and buttons down the left side). The original DVD is Denso Product No 464210-6880, dated 2007 with NavTeq 2006 mapping.
    I have read on different forums that current (2011-12) Landrover disks are compatible but also that a post-2008 disk must be run first to update the software. Can anyone confirm this, preferably someone who has actually tried it?

    Yes, the latest Landrover (RR) DVD works fine, or a good quality copy !
    The Saab 95 denso navi system needs a firmware update if the latest DVD the unit has operated with has a part nr equal to or lower than saab part nr. 12767415 (2005/2006 DVD)
    All units from 2005/2006 first need that update otherwise the latest DVD does not work.
    I have tested this many times and have helped Saab owners from 2005/ 2006 map data to 2011 maps including the firmware update !
    The 2011/2012 maps also work on the kenwood dv3200 unit of the 2004/2005 Saabs , without any need for firmware update.
    Let me know if there are 95-ers who want to get up to date.

    I have a MY'04 9-5 2.2 TiD Estate with the Kenwood SVT-M700 touch screen unit (Same as KNA-DV2200), and have not been able to find a solution to updating the software. Although it is a kenwood unit it uses a Denso disc (2003). I contacted Denso who referred me to Navteq, who referred me to Saab. (No way I'm paying Saab 400 for a disc!). Any suggestions would be welcome.

    I am pretty sure that the DV2200 in your car can also be replaced by the DV3200 and works plug and play on the monitor the dv2200 was connected to. Powercable, antenna and connector to the touch screen unit are all identical. It is a 10 minute job to exchange them. I have done this on several older Saab''s from 2004 who were provided with the DV2200.
    the DV3200 uses the same Map DVD as the lates Dame Etna Saab''s use up to 2009 (ie Landrover DVD)
    A DV3200 should be avaialble for about 100 euro second hand (a bit more including TMC unit) . Not sure if they are offered in the UK. If you cannot find them in UK I may be able to help

    I have a 2006 9-5 and am looking to update the Nav DVD. As I understand your post, I would need a firmware update before using the newer DVDs (eg 2011) that are now available. Can you assist? Thanks so much!

    Re: 9-5 touchscreen sat-nav update

    Yes , I can confirm this; if the latest disk the unit has run with has saab part nr 12767415, then it first needs the firmware update,
    which is available on the DVD''s with the higher part nr 12771885 and some higher (2007/2008) The 2009 2010 versions do not have that firmware update anymore and they, as well as the latest 2011/2012 version will then not work.
    Actually the firmware update makes it possible to us the latest Landrover DVD's as Saab has stopped selling updates as far as I know!!
    I have helped many with getting up to date on the older units back to 2005.
    If you want support, pls send me a pm or private mail

    High Davy, I will respond to you in a PN as I need to first understand what DVD you have purchased and if that is the correct 95 SAT navi . I was also informed by another member that he purchased a DVD recently which did not work, while he already had had his firmware update !

    Re: 9-5 touchscreen sat-nav update

    Probably a silly question but do these disks also work in the 9-3 Satnav? I managed to get a download of the latest DVD (2008) which was merely a slight improvement.

    Re: 9-5 touchscreen sat-nav update

    The Saab 95 (models 2004-2009) Navi DVD does not work on any of the 93 models.

    Hi all,
    For all those who require sat nav updates, I needed an update disc, and all the places out there who offer them do not tell you that 2 discs are required if your Saab is older than early 2007 . one of which updates the software!!! I got help from a chap in the Netherlands who joined the forum under the user name dijkvr and you can contact him best through a PM

    Re: 9-5 touchscreen sat-nav update

    Hi All,
    I've just bought a 2007 9-5 Vector Sport with the Denso unit. I checked this forum before buying a disk from satnavi (saab option 2). My original Saab disc is part no 12771885 Denso 464210-6510 Navteq 2005. I assumed that the disc I ordered would work but when I popped it in the slot it comes up with "Map version is different". I assume that I need to update the firmware but how?
    Thanks for reading / responding.
    Cheers,
    Pete
