    Maps 2019

    Greetings everyone,

    I want to import OpenStreetMaps into Saab maps (for second generation 9-5, 9-3, 2010-2012).
    I need help from you all though!

    I am developer and I do not have original map disc, or any update map disc. Does anyone own any? Can that person make me image of that disc so I can decompile and look at data?
    And then does anyone know architecture of Infotainment system in such Saabs? PowerPC? I386?

    Thank you.

    I am sure you know that the Saab system holds the map data on the hard disc, there is no separate disc drive for the maps. Thus, unless somebody purchased an update on a CD or DVD there won't be any original discs because they don't come with the car.

    Google translation: I have an image of my hard drive. There is also a disk image with maps of 2012 from Cadillac SRX 2

    Excuse me. Was included the automatic translation of the page. Chrome also independently translated the text from English back into Russian.

    Unfortunately, whilst Chrome may have translated your post neither Safari nor Firefox included the English version. For that reason I added the translation.

    I include the Russian from Google Translate for your convenience.
    К сожалению, хотя Chrome мог перевести ваш пост, ни Safari, ни Firefox не включили английскую версию. По этой причине я добавил перевод.

    Hi, I've been trying to find an update for my maps as the mapping system seems to be missing odd roads/roundabouts. Not sure which version I have but my local friendly Saab specialist tells me it's the latest he's got. How do I check? The other weird problem I have is that it wont take all of a UK postcode, just the first five letters/digits. Is this normal.
    Cheers

    The NG 9-5 Sat Nav doesn't take a full UK post code just the first four or five characters and then expects a street name. This is entirely normal.

    Whilst I too would like up to date maps I am well aware that car manufacturers charge an arm and a leg for their updates and Garmin give them away every few months. I use the car's system when I don't need navigation and a Garmin when I do. I think your chances of a current map for your car are very small but if you find one I will be interested, but I'll not hold my breath.
