Default 2010 Radio w/NAV Question (Hard Drive Size)

I have a 2010 SLT Crew with the 730N Media Center CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV

It states "30GB HARD DRIVE W/4250 Song Capacity

When I pull up the hard drive info on the unit it states its total capacity is just over 16GB. Is this an error or am I missing something?

My VIN is 1D7RV1CT2AS210423

Thanks!!

You noticed that too!!
I don't know the answer...decided I really didn't care. I have my iPod connected and it has 64gb, so really have limited need for the HDD anyway.
If you do find something out, post the results here. Even though I don't care about mine, doesn't mean I'm not intrigued!!

No, the NAV maps and other functions take up around 14GB so the capacity it's telling you is available storage.

The navi maps take up a bit of space

at least the 09+ mygigs can have a ipod plugged in for even more space

Thanks guys! Not that I really cared, but is nice to know why the 'displayed' space differs from the 'Impression' you get from the brochure!

Yeah, they don't tell you everything you need to know in the brochure.

Depending on compression size (128kbps - 192kbps) a 4 minute track will range from 3.5MB to 5MB. A GB is 1,000 MB's so you do have some room for quite a few songs. With that many songs, you can put it on Random and not listen to the same song twice for quite some time.

Well that's good to know. I suspect as much, but its a little deceiving in the marketing. I will not likely use the space, but more concerned about a problem if there was one.

Thanks!!

The non-navi mygig has "all" of the advertised space for music (well basically, there are still some OS files on it)

The truth be told.

Data File Transfer/Storage:

2010-up RBZ models: 30 GB HDD for Nav, Photo, Music (17 GB available for storage)

I saw the same thing a week ago and was like WTF, but I said oh well, I dont see my self using 5gb so 16gb is plenty.

Next question, Do we need to buy a map up date cd for Nav or does the head unit get the data right from the satellite via antenna.
