So there’s an expectation that the same should be true of their car’s maps.” In fact, a survey conducted by HERE* found that 74 per cent of respondents expected map updates to be a free part of what they receive with a new vehicle. First launched with Volvo in Europe in 2009, if your car’s manufacturer is part of the program, it’s normally a part of the free service package you receive when you buy a car and lasts for around three years or more. Laurent says, “Our vision is that every driver with a car equipped with a navigation system deserves an always up-to-date map, included in the price of the vehicle.
Finding out what disk I need and how up to date it is has driven me crazy. 1 gives me a part number (same one) but says it's 600 and also does not know how old the map is. Does it work in an X-TRAIL 2005 system and importantly how up to date is it ? Many thanks in advance Dave Hi I have the same problem.
1 tells me my 4 year old disk is the current version 1 tells me they can't get their computer to work 1 never called me back 1 gives me a part number but does not know how up to date it is and quotes me 316 for it.
With the Nissan Navigation upgrade DVD you will save money.
We have touched on how this can already be achieved using the Electronic toll collection setting in your GPS system.
It also includes the electronic toll collection (ETC) feature. It allows you to minimize or maximize your usage of the toll roads across the US border of Canada and Hawaii.
This is just one of the ways that the Nissan GPS upgrade can help you save money while you drive.
How will those in-car maps be kept up-to-date over the life of the vehicle?
Map Care program manager Laurent Vernerey tells us, “People get regular map updates for their smartphones, and for personal navigation devices from the likes of Garmin.
My 2005 x-trail has map disk with 25920 BA020 on it, and the votes from 2 of the dealers above imply that I may need a new disk with 25920 BA05A on it - but they don't fill me with confidence. Just bought an x-trail 2005 (55 reg) but the sat nav disc was missing.
I had an email back from Nissan today with a reference number EOE353R in it. Thought it would be an easy job and chaep job to get a new one, i was quoted 375 inc vat!
But you can verify whether your vehicle has Map Care with your own dealer or car manufacturer.
