    Default New Nav Maps Coming May 26th, 2016

    I did update my sticky thread but this probably deserves it's own thread for new people that don't want/need to read thru the general Uconnect updates thread.


    New maps will be released

    Hi respdoc, This might be a silly question but, do we have to pay for this update or is it free?

    I have updated my radio twice so far with no cost but I think I have read somewhere that the map updates are $150.

    My handheld GPS has lifetime updates for free.

    They do charge for every other model year so I would say they will almost certainly charge for these.


    I also did hear there (should) be another Uconnect update in June (that one will be free).

    You are right about the Uconnect update coming and June is the plan but no confirmation yet. As far as map updates goes, I've been a pain in the you know where for them for 6 months. Mayor here decided to rename about 80% of the south shore's streets a year ago and the NAV has been useless in town since as it doesn't know the new street names. I've emailed them at least once a month since telling them it is a non sense that 2015 cars still run on 2012 maps (Actually 2013 Q1 but they came out in 2012 Q4.)

    The maps should be 149$ USD which is a steal but still better than nothing.

    I never use the in-car nav anyway. On top of being inaccurate/out-dated it also doesn't give you routes based on traffic (like Google Maps would) defeating the purpose of using nav to find the quickest route possible. I'm not going to pay fees for updates maps when they're worse than free services elsewhere.

    I have a feeling I'll end up resorting to hacking in a way to use Android Auto/Apple Car Play eventually.

    Do we know which Nav system is in the 200. My Brother has a Dodge Dart and it has the Garmin system.

    I too am looking forward to this update. Many areas in my overall neighborhood are still being built, so this NAV doesn't know the streets.

    This NAV does go by traffic. There's an option to let it offer routing away from traffic issue. Before I turned it off, it would ask me often in the DC region if I want to take alternative routes.

    It is the HERE system which is based on Navtech of the top of my head.

    Hopefully the update will be recent enough to know them...They need to be at least 2015Q2 here to know the new street names. Anything older than this will be useless.

    I've been in a dilema for a few months here between paying to get the OEM NAV updated or paying a little bit more to get a premium garmin NAV with lifetime maps update and traffic.
