Upgraded NAV today

I looked today (honda.garmin.com/honda/#getstarted) and a new 'maps' version was available. You'll need a 16gig or up formatted to fat32 memory stick and some time. 1st go to the previous link and download the program and instructions. Insert the stick into the passenger side flash drive slot and follow the instructions from the download. Then insert into the computer and it will determine if you need the d/load. Altogether from start to finish it was a shake over 2 hours. All pre-sets are still there.

A long way from having to buy updates.

Fortunate for us over the years brands like Garmin and Tom Tom lost their edge as Google Maps improved and offered a far more sophisticated system for free

I updated mine earlier. The switch to Garmin was a huge improvement over Honda's poor navi system. Plus the first 5 year updates are free. Not ready to use up my phone's data in place of this.

Does this update change the looks of the Nav?

Maps are updated only once a year, usually around September.

Any way to check what version of the Garmin Maps you have?

I tried multiple times in the drivers side 1.5amp and it wouldn't work but did fine in the passenger side 1 amp.
