As part of an ongoing enquiry with Subaru regarding out of date maps with my new car, I was told today that these were the versions of the maps that are being shipped with cars for the Australian market. Essentially, we buy BRAND NEW cars and, at best, get maps that are only a year out of date. The maps in my car (bought earlier this month) are two years out of date!

Impreza
Up to August 2013 Production --> 2011.Q3
From September 2013 Production (MY14) --> 2012.Q3

XV
Up to August 2013 Production --> 2011.Q3
From September 2013 Production (MY14) --> 2012.Q3

Liberty
Up to June 2013 Production --> 2011.Q3
From July 2013 Production (MY14) --> 2012.Q3

Outback
Up to June 2013 Production --> 2011.Q3
From July 2013 Production (MY14) --> 2012.Q3

Forester
Up to 18 August Production --> 2011.Q3
From 19 August Production (MY13 running change) --> 2012.Q3

Exiga
n/a
From August 2013 Production (MY14) --> 2012.Q3


Very poor performance indeed, given that the latest maps I can download (for only $199!) are 2013.Q1. Is it not unreasonable to expect a car made 6 months after the maps were released to have the maps, or did they make too many SD cards for the Aussie market and have to use those up first?

And you forget to mention: No SUNA license provided by Subaru Australia, or available for purchase.

And this is far worse than the out dated map. You cannot just go and buy it, unless you want to replace the unit with the accessory unit at a cool $2.5K.
IMO $192 for an up to date map is not much in the scheme of buying a new car, albeit unfair, while $2.5K is ridiculous to get SUNA working:(

To all Australian members who have the factory fit Sat Nav:

If you are unhappy with your unit's capabilities, please call ACCC on 1300302502 and log a complaint NOW if you haven't already done so.
