Default 3.2 TL navigation system

I have a 1999 3.2 TL w/ the navigation system. The information is on a
removable hard disk, not a CD as the new ones are. It has stopped reading
the hard disk it says "error, unformatted hard drive." It is a simple
PCMIA slot loaded disk. Is there a 3rd party I can get a new one from other
than Acura which wants way too much for it?

Thanks

Mark

I have the same problem...get the number for their customer care or
something (you can get the number for the dealer...if not let me know and I
will see if I still have it somewhere in my car). Just tell them your
problem and that you are so very upset that somethign like this has
happened...bla bla bla...tell them thats is rediculous how much they are
charging to fix it and this should be something that lasts for the life of
the car...not 3 or 4 years (especially at the price they are charging to
replace it). Tell them you love acura...you love everything about it...you
tell all your friend how much you love acura....your whole family drives
acuras or hondas....and tell them that it is something like this that will
keep you from buying another car from Acura....just keep feeding them this
stuff and they will take care of you!

I did this and they replaced my hard drive and updated my navication
database all for free :-)

Go to www.acuraworld.com and ask in the TL area. There have been efforts to
archive the contents of the PCMCIA hard drives and to restore them for users
in situations like yours.
