997 Sat Nav DVD Unit

Hi all.
 
I wonder if anyone can help. It seems my DVD Sat Nav unit may have packed up (I'm getting a new drive transformer tried on it this weekend) as it wasn't reading my Sat Nav disc properly just displaying the arrow and a blank background screen and wouldn't eject the disc from the unit.
 
So my question is does anyone know where I might source a replacement unit (reputable breakers etc) or I have heard that some members have even replaced with an after market unit. I'm not sure if this is a common problem or not but if anyone can help or give some advice I'd be obilged.

    Before spending loads of cash have you tried rebooting the unit? Turn on, press 1, 4 and 8 together ( telephone pad) unit will reboot. Hope this helps. Mike

    Hi Mike. Yes I did try that and the pcm unit seemed to reboot but then I got a message saying sat nav reloading or something with 5 orange bars and it seemed to just stick on the one and not move. It really is very odd!! And of course I couldn't get the disc out of the damn unit as it wouldn't eject!! GRRRRR

    Yes - frustrating how something ultimately so simple can be so annoying and probably needlessly expensive!!

    Not sure if these people can help. I've never used them so can't give a recommend but I came across them when researching an install. The link takes you to a page which states PCM 3 but the blurb says they deal with all Porsche systems.

    Just a thought they may be worth speaking to.

    I had a problem with my Sat Nav unit a couple of years ago and looked at all the options! Took it to Swindon OPC and they 'reset it' and it has been faultless since - no charge while they were doing the MOT. Don't actually know what they did!

    Hi
    I have the same problem on a 997 C4S. Can anyone advise how to remove the drive unit. The plastic cover was easy but the drive unit appears to be removable by puling upwards?
    Thanks
    Bob
     Update you have to buy kit from Ebay or Amazon which has 2 slotted tools to remove unit. Now i need to get fixed?
