    While driving the other day on a rare occasion when I was using the nav system I noticed I've had many exit numbers change and I've got to do an update. So can I please get the best options out there to do it yourself and how difficult is it? Or should I just "suck it up" and bring it to the dealership. I'm fine doing either as long as it's relatively straight forward doing it yourself. Would anyone have a link to a good option? Sorry, I'm sure this has been posted before as a matter of fact I may have even asked the question awhile back myself. I tried a search and couldn't readily find it. :rolleyes:

    No navigation upgrade experience? Guess I'll just call the dealership and give them whatever they get.

    There's a 2020 map update on Amazon. You can replace the card yourself.

    However the maps on my 2018 is not that off. Especially I haven't miss any exists other than they are temporarily moved for road construction. I have only noticed the newer construction house addresses are missing.

    Here's the link for the new card if you want to give it a try-

    Went to the dealership last week and got the fuel pump recall taken care of while I was there I asked about the navigation. The "advisor" really didn't have much of an answer he went on and on about how I need the new SD Card and it doesn't always guarantee the results I'd probably be looking for - huh? for $200 (quoted price) they basically told me I can give that option a try but no guarantees what differences it would make. Reading the reviews for the above Card a decent amount of people said first off it isn't a 2020 update it's 2019 and for some it didn't even work. I think I'll just hold off for now and wait this out a bit. Never realized updating navigation was such a hassle but then again this is the first time I've tried. tons of exit numbers around me are being updated/changed someone told me their being changed to match mile markers or something like that? Just annoying when it tells me to take the next exit #44 and the sign says #17. :facepalm:
