    Does any body know what is the most current SD drive for navigation? Is it 2019 or is there a 2020. I know nav sucks but having an outdated one (2015-2016) sucks even worse. I see chips going on eBay for about $40 which is much cheaper then dealer. Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    What do you do to upgrade the nav? Is it covered for a 2018 under warranty. Well let me re-phrase actually not upgrade but rather update to the latest version.

    You have to buy the update. It’s not covered under warranty and costs $169 online direct from Toyota.

    Just curious. Is anyone aware of any 3rd party nav maps that would have topo info in addition to the streets?

    Gaia GPS app. You get it with or without a subscription. I’ve used it a couple times and it’s good enough. No subscription

    40 bucks they are old not new. oct 2019 then the data is a year old perhaps oct2018 data..
    my july2016 runner has a may 2015 chip which was with 2014 data. in North Carolina on rt74 the road disappears then 5 miles later comes back. cell phone works if its not with the proper software data..

    Thanks. I did a quick search and most results seem to be related to smartphones. Can Gaia be run as an app by Entune?

    Good question, possible with the 2020 update of android auto/carplay or replacing the head unit. Most run Gaia separately on a tablet. There's a SD card you replace in the stock radio to upgrade factory nav routes. It's under a button that actually pulls off. My local dealer quoted me $80 for the updated card.

    Thanks for the advice guys! I took a risk and bought a 2019 sd for $40. Guess we will see what happens. I am assuming 2019 is better then late 2015 lol

    Let us know how that goes. My '14 could stand to be updated but I'm hesitant with new software not knowing how it interacts with a unit the age of mine.

    I'm sure it's probably fine. I'm just gun-shy after updating my son's Cherokee Trailhawk (I know, completely different platform altogether). I had to attempt it no less than 20x over 2 days then it finally took and installed.

    Hey guys received the chip in the mail. Easy to install just popped it in and it started to update. Unfortunately what was advertised as latest 2019 update turned out to 2018 maps. Still for 35 bucks I can’t complain, mine was 2015. Most important is I don’t live in the middle of a field anymore and other major street changes are updated.
