Need Rer mygig info/help

First of all...sorry for my first post being a question rather than an intro or helping out, but I'm totally new to the JK scene. Always wanted a Wrangler, but thought I wouldn't get along very well with the rough ride. But man...on the test drive I was blown away with how smooth it was! Got a Red 2010 JK Sport. Man I love it! Ok...I'm rambling on. Sorry.

I purchased a new Mygig RER from a private seller. Part number 5064818AD, which I know will work in my Jeep. But the seller says I need a disk for it to work. Never heard of that before. I told him that all the nav maps and software is already pre-loaded. So now he says that maybe he misunderstood the dealer. My understanding also is that I shouldn't have to visit a dealership for this to work. Someone told me that they have to activate it with their star scan-tool or something like that. But I thought that the scan tool was just to register any accessories with your vin number. I going wrong somewhere with my understanding of how this is playing out? Appreciate any education I can get.

I believe that to be true..... It is an attempt to limit "theft"
