When you order a map update for the RED/PURPLE or GREEN disc, the Device ID, Database Version and Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) are used to identify your vehicle. The instructions for obtaining these numbers vary slightly between the navigation systems, so please follow the instructions for the appropriate RED/PURPLE or GREEN Disc.  Note: You must order a separate map update for each vehicle you wish to update as map update discs cannot be shared between vehicles.
