I am also interested in joining in if possible. I have a 2010 Volvo XC60.
I am also interested in joining in if possible. I have a 2007 Volvo s40
Me too! I'm looking for the DVD set. Of course there is now the just-released 2011-2012 version...
Specifically, I'm looking for this one.
(sorry I don't see an edit button)
The DVD set I just linked above seem to be part number T1000-16868 . I found this in the URL of the navigation site, not from Volvo.
I just bought the 3 DVD 2011-2012 set from NAVTEQ for $221 including shipping and tax. It arrived today and when I looked at the discs under the Part No. is a date 2009Q3. I'm calling them tomorrow as it sure doesn't seem right to me. - Klaus
I can appreciate you are unpleasantly surpised
The 2010-2011 edition has indeed a database of 3rd quarter 2009
There is absolutely nothing to get excited about. This is normal and in fact a very decent example of branding an update
If you take the 2011 BMW editions, they have a Q2-2009 database which is a lot wore than the Volvo data
All questions should be directed through the forum

Thanks for the info Gazo. I'm new to this stuff and expected the discs to say Q3-2011. I did call today and the lady at Navteq told me that the discs I received were indeed the latest release from July 2011. She couldn't tell me much else and insisted that the 2009 was a copyright date. So does this mean that the basic data - the mapping (streets and roads) - is from Q3-2009 and that the POIs are updated to July 2011? Thanks - Klaus
hey Klaus,,,what year/model is your car? I also need a copy of the 3 disc set for my 2006 xc90. Would be interested in joining the group buy if there is one..
^^did anyone get anywhere with this?
