    While searching the internet for GPS update I stumble across the Gracenote Update for CR-V 2013 for Europe. I guess it is for the music enthusiasts. My update was successful.My CR-Vs Initial version was 4503 and now the updated version is 6565. Since it is free it is worth updating. I used nero to burn since the windows copy feature was inadequate with the CDs capacity.

    I didn't know about this so I'll try it the weekend.

    Try burning at a slower speed?

    Troubleshooting:

    If you encounter issues during the update process, it may be due to one of the following reasons: If you pushed the "disc eject" button during the update, you must restart the update process from the beginning.
    The system may not be able to read your CD. The CD you burn must be in one of the following formats in Mode 1 / Mode 2: ISO9660, Level2, Joliet, or Romeo.
    The file may have been corrupted during the file decompression process. Repeat the process to decompress the file and burn the CD and try again.
    Please refer to the FAQs for your vehicle model for additional information on troubleshooting, or contact your Authorised Honda Dealer.

    you have 3 solutions
    1. Burn image with nero buring rom (this worked for me)
    2. Burn to a different make CD disc.
    3. Burn with a lower speed 2x

    If you radio plays music from original CDs your cd player is fine and gracenote can be updated.

    With Nero yes, otherwise I had also trouble. DVD disc is not recognised. You can only use CD disc.

    No CDs I listen to are newer than about 2003, so I'll stick with the current version which works perfectly!

    Progress! I just followed the instructions and dragged them on to the disc and let windows burn it. If I click "ok" it messes it up so I'm waiting now.

    It takes some time. It happened to me too :Smile:

    Burning with windows did not work for me. Data size exceeds disc size :Smile:

    Done! Its all updated to 7155.

    It hasn't got the Jess Glynne album in it the database but it has when copying the cd in Nero on the laptop and looking it up via Gracenote. The cd text reads in the car so will be copied to the hard disc.

    Surely there's a way to get the latest database as the one above is still out of date?
