    Also, make sure the flash card is inserted correctly.

    Remove the trim from the drivers side transtunnel and the lower trim under steering wheel. There is a slot in the side of the headunit for the sd card that has the maps. (This is what you replace to get updated maps)It’s like any sd card. Push it in and out it comes. Reinsert it.

    It’s possible it might have become corrupted if Pete’s above link doesn’t resolve it.

    After that, it’s the gps antenna, which also is not a complex thing to replace if you need to.

    There is a function somewhere where you can check gps signal.

    Old mate says taken from a crashed car.

    I didn't realise that Holden had issued these......need to make a call on Monday to see if they are still available.

    Has the part number on there.
    Would be good if someone bought it and then hosted the file so we can copy it.

    ...that would be good.

    Don't bother purchasing the item below, and spread the word of the same.
    ttps://www.ebay.com.au/itm/353063668415

    I didn't know that Holden Released this version for VE Series 2 Vehicles, but I was willing to give it a go,
    as I'm on the road everyday, as my 2015 version is a bit old now, and a lot has changed in the past 5 years,
    Where some roads its like I am driving through a Paddock or a Field, hahaha.

    As I made an offer for this item, and he made a counter offer,
    I accepted that, in which I was prepared to pay with PayPal, which I normally do on all my eBay Purchases.
    As you have a Buyers Protection.

    But he will not accept PayPal, ONLY Direct Deposit, which is got me thinking it is a risk because the seller can see where the funds came from, so he can then try and hack the account,
    Not to mention he is VERY rude and threatening.

    I offered to resolve the issue numerous times with messages going backward and forward all night and pay with PayPal,
    as he is being very obnoxious and threatening, seems he is like a Keyboard Warrior.
    And is still threatening me with eBay rules, and saying I HAVE TO PAY BY DIRECT DEBIT,
    He has since said he has now blocked any payment from me and also blocked any future bidding from me,
    That is the attitude of this person,
    So You have to ask,
    Is this Person legit,
    Is the Software Legit ?
    When does eBay accounts don't have a PayPal account attached, is it not Mandatory to be able to set up a PayPal account.

    I don't give a rats if he marks a unpaid complaint against me,
    as least I have the $ in my account, and I was able to warn other would be buyers.

    PS: Interesting enough,
    I just noticed, but not sure if anyone else has noticed, the label isn't printed very well,
    and Genuine Holden Maps Labels have rounded corners,
    Where the label in the image looks dodgy and faded,
    One would think, how would a label that was removed from a wreck be faded, and so he had 5 of them, what 5 wrecks of the same car ?
    or unless he has had it sitting on the shelf for a long time.

    Flick me an email and I'll gladly host the file on the site, never know when it might come in handy.

    Of course this of the understanding no breaches of copyright are made which doesn't sound like it in which case sorry not on the web site please.

    Krusing I would reach out to eBay, as far as I know every seller had to have their account linked to PayPal? Just put the payment through via PayPal, end of the day the worst you have to do is open a dispute.

    Hi Darren,
    Thank you for the message,
    I was being very diplomatic about the whole transaction,
    And he then said he doesn't accept paypal,
    I then asked politely to cancel the sale, he has since cancelled the cancellation of the transaction so it can NOT be cancelled,
    I did try to pay via PayPal, but he didn't have a PayPal account linked to his eBay account,
    And refused my offer my payment and locked out any payment from me, so he can claim a unpaid dispute,
    Where he does not stipulate on his add that he does not accept PayPal payment with in his add,
    So you would automatically think paypal is accepted.
    However I have take screen shots of the transaction and communications between both of us.
    the worst can happen is I get a slap on the wrist for not paying for his dodgy items.
    But I have blown open his scam, and game of deception to warn other JC Members so they done get stung with his scam, and threatened.
    His add is a bit strange,
    as he had 5 of them, pulled from wrecked vehicles ?, 5 of the same wrecked vehicles :rolleyes:
    Hmmm, I don't think so !
    And he also sells Ladies Shoes, maybe he wears them at night :D

    At the end of the day, I'm in front, some of the dumb comments cracked me up.
    There will be more discussions between him, me and eBay,
    but I wont bore the JC Members, because it will be a **** fight.
    cheers.

    I checked my records...
    The part number for the '2020 update' eBay SD card, is exactly the same as the 2014 genuine update.

    2020-05-24 13.33.50.jpg

    For reference, here's the numbers for the 2016 genuine update.

    2020-05-24 13.31.54.jpg

    You can see how the update numbering progresses.

    Were you successful?
    I could only find a link that went to the Holden servicing web page.

    I can't even find Holden on the list.
    Have found a download for a Chevy SS 2014. it is a North American map. :(

    Just dead ends for maps on Holden Nav systems. So ironic.

    I have emailed them asking for assistant, as Holden Commodore is no longer available in Australia, and the Maps are not supported.
    Just waiting for them to come back to me.
