Hi again does anyone know how to test a nav DVD unit?
The PCM tells me to load a DVD and when I do (have tried 2 DVDs), all I get is one bar saying it is loading. I have replaced the SAT aerial and am getting 6/7 satellites and my location is correct. The maps are not loading so I cannot use it. All the SW numbers appear to be up to date.

Update

Having spoken to my electronic wizard, he said the DVD readers are notorious for packing up (especially on M**c cars). The suggestion was to dry it out and see if it worked...NO...or take it to bits and see if the laser was dirty...NO.
To try and repair it was fairly expensive, so I bit the bullet and bought a replacement (cheaper than a repair). Happily working again.
