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!!!stou0220 wrote:I meant to upload this the other day. Here is the package my SD card came in with all the relevant info.

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 ...stou0220 wrote:I meant to upload this the other day.

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!Viktor wrote: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?
