I am ordering a new XV S and want to know how you go about updating the factory Sat Nav unit with map updates.
The dealer told me the first 3 updates, to be taken when I want them, are free with subsequent updates being $120 AUD.
Can anyone you owns a XV now give me some feedback on how the updates work and the costs associated with them and where I would go to get them - e.g. the my subaru web site??
Hi Big G,Seems odd as I am sure the portable unit in my sisters cars (Tom Tom) was bought this year and when she registered it online it did a firmware and map update there and then. It also says there should be an update at least twice a year??
Hi GD,^^^interesting, I can get no farther than here and no sub-listings for the models show up (?). http://www.navigation.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/WFS/Navteq-NavteqNorthAmerica-Site/en_US/-/USD/ViewStandardCatalog-Browse?CatalogCategoryID=Aa8KCghBX5cAAAE4u1ll8mr_&ShowAllProducts=YES&PersistNavigationMenu=YES I did look at some other manufacturers that showed sub-models and updates available but nothing for Subaru.
Oops blocked by corporate.. Let me try that again using another connectionHis mine
Yes I know but it will be euro maps so pretty useless for us in AUS and you in the Philippines.Wow! That's expensive for a map update (Europe).
I'd rather use my Nokia with Ovi Maps or iPhone with Google Maps!
