Sat Nav disc 2008 997 C4S

When I bought my 2008 Gen 1 997 a year ago I was a bit wet behind the ears and never checked that the Sat Nav disc was present. This was predominantly due to the fact that I had no idea a disc was in fact needed and I just wanted to get in and drive the thing. Destination accuracy wasn’t even a consideration.
 
When I realised my error I made a polite enquiry of the dealer and got the customary platitudes. As I was waiting for the second key to arrive I didn’t push it and now wish I had. It took 6 months to wrestle the key out of them incidentally.....
 
I have been variously advised that the best and most economical remedy is Halfords but I like things to be right so does anyone have any thoughts on the matter ? I imagine the ideal solution involves lots of OPC £££’s and a software upgrade but I live in hope.

    I think the Porsche satnav is so rubbish that I use Google maps in I'm 997 gen 2. Save yourself some money on the upgrade and invest in a good phone holder instead.

    Simplistically I was hoping to find a 2008 disc and accept the limitations rather than spend on the upgrade.
     
    Looks like Halfords or Google maps...

    Would someone please email me with details on the upgrade disks available, I rather like using the old porsche system, (part of the charm). But as most normal folk dont want to have to pay ridiculous prices?
     
    thanks, Lee.

    I’ve decided to take advice and bought a good quality Garmin phone holder so I can use Google Maps. Thanks to all.

    Got one from mous.co.uk which they call their flex mount. I’ve not really studied it but the phone attaches via the magnet on the mount. The mount attaches by suction so it looks like it will have to sit on the top, i.e. flat surface, of the dash. Bit pricey at about £40 I think but well engineered.
     
    Got a Belkin “universal mount” from Halfords also for £18. Again not got round to comparing it but it holds the phone in a spring loaded clamp and again looks like it will have to sit on the flat top.
     
    not sure I’d want either stuck to screen both from a visibility point of view or the fact that the holder could come unstuck or phone fall out of holder.
     
    Hope that helps.
