I have a 2004 TL and it has the new navigation DVD. The database version is
20030711 and the software version is 1.0300.

What I was speaking of is an updated DVD that supposed to be out late
last year or early this year. There hasn't been one since 2001 and
there was supposed to be one every Fall.

It did come out. I got it before Christmas. It adds routing into
"unverified" areas, and all the destinations are now on the wrong side of
the street.

According to the website (this morning 2/9/04), it has been withdrawn to fix
a software compatibility problem. You can pre-order version 2.11b online
for estimated delivery in late Feb.

To find it online (there may be other ways, but this is where I found it).
Go to www.acura.com, join the owners link if you haven't already. On the
owners link page select Acura FAQ under "Customer Relations" and you will
find a link to the order page in the answer to the question about "When are
DVD updates available ...".

Fortunately Acura makes their money from cars and not from designing user
interfaces for web pages...

I found that webpage and thought it was unbelievably convoluted!

I finally called Acura and the update is now supposed to go out in the
late part of February or early March. I won't hold my breathe.
