    has anyone updated their nav?
    had my car in today for the fuel rail and asked for updates...they told me they could not update my nav

    WI recently changed the speed limit from 65 to 70 and im getting tired of the warning going off

    is this something simple to do with a stick drive?

    is this free? is this free forever or a service i need to purchase?

    I think it's an update you pay for. I bet it's awhile before you see an update for our Nav's though.

    you can turn your warning off in the UConnect settings.

    so i go to walmart and buy a nav for $150....comes with free updates for life

    i pay $800 of whatever it was for my car....i get less in return than i got for my $150 nav?

    my last 3 cars now have nav's built in......i still dont see why people want an $800 nav built in over the $150 one that sits on the dash.....i take it because its what the cars had.....i take the closest car/truck i can find and they always have nav.

    should be free---at least for 3 years or so....i actually think it should download updates by itself w/o me doing anything...i know the HC speaks to a satellite or whatever...it warns me of heavy traffic...so it communicates with something.....why not just update on its own monthly

    Well you will get some of the money back when you sell the car. Think how antiquated it will be in 30 years. Just like the old bag phones.

    Bag phones? I've got a 1979 Power Wagon I purchased new with a state of the art AM/FM 8-track factory stereo......same in my 1975 Imperial.

    I was under the impression that any NAV updates that occur while the car is still under the factory warranty are free. I know Dodge sent me an update disc once back when I had a '09 R/T. I didn't pay for it....

    Operating system updates are free if you do them yourself or as long as warranty. Map updates are never free.

    Do these cars still use the Garmin system that was in the 2014 and older cars? The interface looks a lot different and the maps are not even close to being new. I updated the Nav in my 2013 when I had it using a Garmin unit with lifetime maps... worked perfectly.
