      NAV system stuck in upgrade loop

      Hey guys,
      Got one I can't figure out and need some guidance.

      08 XC90 3.2, Factory NAV

      Bought an update disk, interested it, systems started doing it's updates. Went thru 2 or 3 reboots updating different things/firmwares. Came to the last part, updating the maps. It starts, saying 200 minutes remaining, few minutes later it switches to cannot read disk.

      If I exit out of the update it has updated some things as the screen and layout is completely changed, much more modern.

      Suggestion on getting the update to complete? I have already run a disk cleaner thru in addition to blowing out the unit with some compressed air.

      The disk is spotless, not a single scratch on it.

      If I cannot get the update to complete, is there a way to cancel it? Every time I start the card the NAV now turns on trying to complete the update even after I have shut the NAV down.

      Thanks,
      -Brian

      Options:
      Connect a smart battery charger and try again. Maybe low voltage?

      If it doesn’t work, remove nav, clean laser lens gently with a cotton bud and isopropyl alcohol, and try again. Maybe dirty laser lens?

      If it doesn’t work, use a pressed DVD (Original) and not a copied DVD. Maybe weak laser?

      Note that a copied, burnt DVD reflects less light than a pressed DVD and is thus harder to read, requiring a stronger laser. If the laser is old and weak then you can get to a situation where the errors reading the copied DVD are too high, but a pressed DVD may still work (for a few years)

      I had this when I updated the software in my 2009 car, kept getting the "could not read disc error". I kept ejecting the disc, putting it back, it would be ok for anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes then the same error would occur and I would repeat the process. It was a major ballache but after 5 hours the update completed ok.

      I had this issue also but ended up getting the disk replaced for resolution.

      pulled the nav unit today, fully cleaned. Still experiencing same. Is there a way to roll back the upgrade? Cannot get out of the loop. Even tried a factory reset. Thanks!

      You could try inserting the previous version, but you’d be better off trying with another DVD.
