I own a 2010 Pilot Touring model with NAVI. Bought it in November 2009 and I just received a letter from Honda or someone offering an update to the Map for $185 with free shipping. When I go to their website, it doesn't look like a "good" site....not very straighforward anyway.
What have others here done about updating the NAVI system map data? Also are there more places to buy it than just from Honda and what is the cost, etc?
With the amount of money people pay for Navi system...honda should offer free life time map upgrade. Tomtom and Garmin offer free life time map upgrade and more for alot less money.
Also I can step off an airplane in to a rental car with my tomtom or garmin and not drive my pilot cross country and get lost with honda stock navi.
I think it sucks, that I bought a 2009 vehicle with Nav, and Hondas NAV didn't have a major interstate highway on it! (355 extension if your in IL).
Now, 355 extension was done prior to my wife and I purchasing our 2007 Acura RDX with Nav. We were OK with the RDX not having the new 355 extension, seeing as it had only recently been completed. (11-12-2007 completion)
Two and a half years later we traded the RDX on the Pilot, and we find out still no update shpowing the extension. We travel it daily, and it is so annoying when we are trying to use the GPS and it keeps rerouting you because it doesn't recognize us as being on a road.
This HONDA is unacceptable. When I buy a 2009 vehicle, and pay as much as I did for the NAVI upgrade, the map database should be current. No excuses.
I called, explained my story to Honda, they refused to do anything to help me, besides offer the disc to me at full retail price
