Re: SD UNLOCK NG on navigation screen

I meant to upload this the other day. Here is the package my SD card came in with all the relevant info. The dealer I bought the Leaf from ordered this and had it on hand in 3 business days.

This is excellent info! I am going to stop by the dealer with this info. I guess I may just have to get this card now and then the update card later on as well. That's the big question right now! I certainly appreciate all the quick responses. What a great forum!!!

Hi all, I received some more info on the SD card today. I contacted Nissan (their Leaf division) and they researched this for me. It turns out that you do not need the original card --- the update is all you need. The problem is, it has been due out for quite some time now and they have no idea when it will really be available. They have been having programming issues. They said they could order the original card for me, but it is on backorder and will take at least 2 weeks for the order to go through (no big deal). It would be shipped to a local dealer of my choosing and would run $417.00. I told him that I thought that price sounded really high to me! He said the mark-up can be anywhere from 25 to 130% depending on what part of the country the dealership is in. Is there anyone on the forum who can recommend a dealership that isn't a ripoff?! I'm beginning to wonder if I made the right decision purchasing a Nissan product ...

Look into the dealerships tha sell online. I never remember which one I have used and their website names are often generic even though they are run by real dealerships.

Nissan really got us here with their Clarion. I would never buy factory installed Navi unit - for the fraction of the cost U can get much better Kenwood or something else, but with Leaf there is no options for aftermarket one - am I correct?

Yeah Viktor, unfortunately everything is integrated into the nav screen. Right now I have no radio, no climate control display, etc. The back-up camera is the only thing that works. One dealer I spoke with said they didn't have a listing for the card --- just the whole unit for $6000.00! I just need to take my time, shop around a bit and see what I can come up with. I have bought parts online before from dealerships for other makes, I just need to find one for Nissan as QueenBee suggests!

I received my new card today and it works like a charm. I ordered it from Courtesy Nissan in Richardson, TX. But for those of you who are interested, I noticed tonight that the 2013 update is now available for our cars! Check out nissannavigation.com. My timing was off about a week! Oh well, I'm just happy I can now play the radio, use the nav system, check energy usage, etc. I'm lovin' the car and have put about 900 miles on it in the month that I've had it!
