AutoInstruct presents a tutorial on upgrading the Holden IQ Navigation Maps on your VE Commodore. This is only applicable to vehicles fitted with factory navigation, and this process requires new maps to be purchased from a Holden dealership.

Tools / Parts Required

  • Flathead Screwdriver
  • Updated Holden IQ Navigation Maps (Available from your local Holden dealer)

Step 1

Firstly unclip the scrivet as circled. Then pull firmly downwards on the lower trim piece.

Step 2

With the first panel lowered, pull down and remove the upper trim piece.

Step 3

You can now see the side of the Holden IQ headunit. The navigation memory / SD card is located behind a white sticker. Simply break the sticker seal and the SD card can be removed.

Insert the new SD card and re-install the trim pieces as per the removal. Ensure all clips are seated correctly and the trim pieces are correctly overlapping each other.

Your navigation maps are now updated.

    Had my car serviced at Booran Holden Dandenong yesterday.
    Asked for the nav unit maps to be upgraded they said the latest update they have is 2.5 years old and they have no idea when the next update is coming.
    At service time last year I asked to have the update done and got told the same as yesterday.
    Question: Is this true? or am I being lied to?
    Does anyone know of any updated maps being available and if so where can I purchase the update from?
    Customer service is abysmal from this company.

    Hey Guys… Ive got a similar issue with my 2013 SS Z Series.. pressed the navi button day and it now comes up saying “Navigation not fitted”. But its always worked. Now it doesn’t bring up the camera, school zone or rail crossing warnings either. Is this a IQ issue, a setting someone has hit or is it an upgrade issue?

      Could be a faulty SD card. Might be worth taking it out, copying the data off it (if you can) and loading it onto a new SD Card.

      Hello, Most parts are interchangeable! It may need some modifications depending on exactly what you’re trying to achieve, and VIN Coding will be required.
