Navigation update ?

How can I update the map on my navigation system. I just bought a 2004 MDX with RES & NAV and the map is from 2004.

You have to replace the navigation DVD. The DVD player is located under the passenger seat.

Here's the link:
The Official Acura Map Update Site

If you're going to replace it, i'd suggest doing it now. They have a special going on until Jan. 31 and it's marked down to $99. Just got mine in the mail today.

Same here! I saw another thread on it a few weeks ago and jumped on the opportunity. Were you still using the stock 04 disc like I was haha.

I wouldn't say I was using it..LOL It has pretty pictures though. I've been using my Garmin when I really need Nav. The MDX is my wife's car and she still calls and asks me how to get around town.

Is there a big different between the disk and does the image quality change as well?

Hahaha. Same here, it got me lost one too many times so I relied on my Droid. I'm going to use it now for at least a year or so.

I have an HTC EVO and I love the navigation on it. The image quality is a lot better than the one in my acura.

I bet! The screen on the Evo is freakin' huge. I still have the Droid 1 but the nav is fantastic on it as well.
