MKIII ejecting map disc on my MG-ZT

Afternoon all,

I recently purchased an MG ZT complete with the MKIII SatNav (which I have been lead to believe is the same as those installed within BMWs).

When I power on the SatNav the map disc ejects.

Before buying a new Map Disc as this may be the problem I figured I would try to update the OS/Software/Firmware or whatever its called!

Firstly can this be done on an MG fitted MKIII as I have read a few posts saying that the Firmware gets locked?

Secondly if this can be done which version should I update to and is there a good step by step guide available?

Many thanks in adavnce,

Jackyboy

nobody knows if you can upgrade the OS on a Rover Factory Fitted MKIII Satnav?

what version is fitted now?

it has been around 6-8 years since the last range rover OS update, you might already have the latest OS loaded.

it is a 2005 model MG ZT 4.6 V8.

Unfortunately can't check what version is currently running as when I put SatNav on it just says insert disc... Whenever we put the disc back in it just gets ejected again.. so as Kiwi says its possibly a dead laser?

Im not upgrading the version for more features I was just hoping it was corrupt or would somehow fix the ejecting CD by loading a new OS!

Let me know what you think,

many thanks

You don't need a map disc to check the OS version

Look on the top right of the Settings screen, there is displays the OS version number.

Not really. There is no point reloading the OS if you already have the latest version

You achieve nothing in a very risky way. You can kill the Mk3 if you create a OS disc in the wrong format

Hence I repeat: if you already have the latest version loaded, do not touch it!

One more: what version is loaded now?

Jack dump the mk3 and buy a mk4, then install the latest OS with the splash changed to rover (there are a few on here).
