That part # is for a dvd, I believe yours is a cd based navi. Does it have a 4:3 screen? also a dvd based navi say's dvd right on face of unit in trunk. If thats the case thats why it don't work imo

The Mk IV NAV system was installed beginning with late model year 2002s, if I'm not mistaken. It shows the "DVD" symbol on the disk drive. Prior to that the NAV system used a series of 8 or 10 CDs (not 1 DVD) for the maps.

Here are pictures of the two systems.

If your car is a 2001, then you most likely have the CD-based system. The DVD won't work at all.

Sorry.

Here is the answer to the op, he have an 01, so it is likely to have the mkIII, which is cd based (8 or 10 cds for 8/10 different regions in the US).

You went n bought the dvd disc for the mkIV unit, which will not be read by the mkIII unit.

Solution: go n buy a used mkIV drive to replace ur mkIII in the trunk, and if ur nav screen is a 4:3, not 16:9, then i suggest u get a 16:9 also
