Default Navigation System '07

Hey Guys,

I had this "MAP DISC INSTALLED ERROR" and got a new one from the dealer a few years back. Then that one went, came on here, and bought one off someone. Now that one has gone as well. My biggest problem is not necessarily finding a disc -- if anyone can tell me where i can get one please speak up. More so, its that when i press the 'eject' button for the screen to pop out forward, there is another white button to physically eject the NAV disc. This is where the problem is. The disc will NOT eject out of the system. I dont want pry it out and possibly damage the system, i could care less if i damaged the disc as i could just get a new one.

Any thoughts / help ... thanks!

fwiw, my nav unit was replaced twice for a faulty drive mechanism. There is no way to eject the disc, even if you disassemble the unit itself (i tried)

If you need another nav disc PM me, I have my 08 brand new for sale.

If it's totally broke I'd just spring for an aftermarket unit.
