Peugeot 508 RT6 Sat Nav unit not working

Recommended Posts

Wondered if anyone had experience on this unit the RT6, My car shows maps. It pics up satellites but will not accept a new destination, It comes up with "please insert manufacturers CD" I obviously do not have this CD and thought it was just simply a case of getting this CD and updating the  database, When you  try and give it a  destination, It will accept an Address but the machine  just permanently  hangs at "installing database" and  no destination is ever loaded, Can anyone  tell me if the CD isput into the head unit or if i am looking for another module in the boot ?? for example

Peugeot main agent Parts manager says its broken needs sending off after just a chat and giving him the chassis  number and asking me what happens when i try and work it, Something just does not feel right, For my own sanity i would just like to offer it a CD like it is asking and see  if it wakes it up, Sure i can get one  of Ebay, Does anyone have any experience with this RT6 unit who can offer some insight, Or who has a  Company  that you have used for this  specialist type of Electronic repair preferably in the Midlands area who i could chat to and get an opinion

Mine wasn’t quite similar really, I never got to the Nav stage, it was just a constant “updating” message on the screen. In the end, mine was an issue with the module, someone had buggered it up by using a cheap CD update from eBay! So take it to a proper firm. The module itself is about £600 from memory or they send it off to France. Not cheap either way.

If it’s big money it’s worth fixing.

I am sure there are specialist electronic companies out there that have the  expertise to repair these units, Its a big business area in our industry, I brought it £400 behind Cap Ave so i have some margin for repair, Just need to find company i can trust for the work
