I will have to call the dealer to see what can be done!
I will definitely give them a call, thank you.No, and to be honest don't know why they offered it. I bought the car in June of 2012 so it's not like it was a left over and was out of date. It was two discs, one for updating something in the radio and the second was updating the maps.
Garmin has excellent customer service so a call to them to ask should give you an answer if you can buy it directly from them.
I received 2 discs, one a radio update and the second was a map update.The disk was a software update for the radio itself, not a map update. Now some owners may have received a free map update if they purchased a new vehicle in a later year (buying a leftover 2012 now if they have any more).
I know in Ohio last summer the highway speed limits were increased from 65 to 70 in rural areas.... when you put the NAV on it shows your speed and the speed limit and that is incorrect as it still shows 65... so somewhere something in the mapping system needs updated when they change speed limits for roads. New roads are built all of the time so maps do get outdated. I know they just completed a highway bypass around a very small town. When I drive on it it shows me going through a field. I have a 2013 so just on those two things it is outdated. A big deal, no, but outdated none the less.I received 2 discs, one a radio update and the second was a map update.
As stated my car was built and received in June of 2012 so I don't see how the maps would be old at that point.
