I believe it's both. Comparing the last update to the latest one it seems like there has been an updated map version because the map numbers are different and for firmware, we just gotta download it and see what has changed for the HU.

Probably hasn't been released yet.
Yep, there's usually a gap between the nav version and non-nav. Or it may be only a maps update.

I keep the Wi-Fi turned off as it's annoying have to keep dismissing the messages.

Here's the update: I'm a little confused by this update because it asks for an activation code. Following the steps from the Map Downloader, it says I must go into settings > Navigation > Map Update Information
I did that and got the code so I can activate the map update. However, when I type it in and click enter it says it's the wrong pin. I'm very confused by this. In the last pic, I tried using that code to see if it would work but it didn't. Am I doing something wrong? I don't want to hit skip because what happens if I end up not updating the map but only the firmware? Also, my subscription expires on January 21st, 2023.

I just downloaded this release to a USB Stick and will install it on my 2021 Crosstrek tomorrow. The download page says "No Activation Code needed" - I find that downloading the update to a USB Stick works faster than using WiFi directly from the car to install the update. I have not been asked for a activation code when I used either method.

I have a feeling it asked for it because my free map updates expire in 2023. When I did it in the past it didn't ask for any code, just downloaded it onto my USB and insert it into the car. I also agree with you downloading the update onto a USB stick is a lot more faster and reliable than a WiFi update.

Has anyone tried doing an update after their free subscription expired?
