eBay here in the States is littered with them. Have you tried eBay on your side of the pond? You might try posting in the wanted section as well.

I believe the majority of BMW nav units come from Eastern Europe - because there is only main road mapping available. Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia... Their maps are pretty horrendous.

What has this to do with Range Rover navigation DVD's?

You want a map for Eastern Europe, and the "hick" countries don't have maps, they barely have running water. That's what it has to to with your DVD, but I guess you can figure it all out for yourself!

Calm down, calm down

Your opinion on the status of Eastern European countries is irrelevant, also my interest in obtaining a map DVD of Eastern Europe would be of no interest to you at all.

So do YOU know of a source of up to date second user navigation DVD's that cover western and eastern Europe for a 2005 FF RR?

A simple yes or no will suffice

Well not really because it's the point, you want updated Maps for E EU. There are hardly any existing maps for E EU as it is because they have either not allowed detailed mapping or is is not economically viable for the mapping companies so they have only mapped to the most basic level and they wont invest in further development.

Unfortunately you are so right, there is no difference between the DVD that came with the car in 2006 and the 2009 one... I mean the maps concerning my country...

My mapping software when new only included the western Europe DVD, this is why I need the updated Navteq DVD's. These: http://tinyurl.com/yha5r3h are the updated 2009/2010 two disk western / eastern Europe DVD's from Landrover / Navteq. As can be seen the updated disks are rather expensive hence my desire for a source of second hand DVD's. Maybe someone has an Eastern Europe DVD and has no desire to travel to those countries and would be prepared to part with the eastern Europe disk only.

From Navteq concerning the 2009 /1010 updated western / eastern Europe DVD's

'With the road network constantly changing, it’s essential to keep the mapping up to date so the system can operate at its very best and function as efficiently as possible. Teams of specially trained researchers are constantly working to keep track of the new bypasses, one way systems and road layout alterations - to name just a few – which are constantly being introduced. Take advantage of their expertise and don’t get left behind – this combined Western and Eastern Europe map features an impressive total of nearly eight million kilometres of road network. Nearly half a million kilometres have been added since the last version!'

I cannot comment if this is true as I don't have the updated DVD's but they must be better than my 2005 version

Western and Eastern Europe though - that's a lot of roads to cover.

Check this out for reference:

Dan, the pictures you attached make it so clear. There are barely 3 (main) streets represented in my city, and it's the second largest in the country.... The only satnav software that has detailed maps of the area is iGO.
