Default Has anyone got a Navigation CD for Eastern Europe??

Hi
Well, as the thread title suggests.

We have left the UK and settled in Bulgaria, and all we can get on the display is a heading pointer.
I've got a Tom Tom which I use, but I like the built in Nav too, so we need a disc that includes Bulgaria etc.

Any idea where to get one?

What cars is if for? D2 or D3 ?

Either way any discs will be out of date. I never used built-in satnav in A8. I have updated maps to the latest version on the Q7 HDD based satnav but even when they are released they are like 18 months old and I have not used it yet but it's there as backup.

Not sure how the coverage is in Bulgaria but I use either Waze or Google maps on Android phone. Waze seems to have more up to date traffic but Google more up to date with maps.

You might find one on eBay, latest maps were around 2013 I think. Remember the Blaupunkt TravelPilot DX system the RNS-D actually is is the same as a Mercedes Comand system so either CD will normally work.
You do need to make sure it's the DX version though.
(I think the maps in my RNS-D are actually a Mercedes version which has the small bonus that it picks up RDS-TMC traffic info, Audis version doesn't)

Hi
The car is a D2 S8, The facelift model.

Aye, the disc will be out of date but as we all know, roads don't change that much.
I tend to use my Tom Tom to go to grid references, but it's nice to have the 'big picture' on the cars' screen.

why not use a mobile phone with google maps?

I do about 40k miles a year and nothing works better, especially with traffic updates.
