Thats correct, they come out in September, however the most current version is 2.05, released last fall. 2.04 was released in mid year, during 2001.
I am also very dissapointed in the lack of coverage in NH & Maine.
Dan, if you took delivery of your MDX in 2002, I would insist that your dealer provide you with version 2.05 immediately.
Just to clarify that Version 2.04 or 2.05 is a software version of the Nav System. It has nothing to do with the map. You can upgrade with the dealer from 2.04 to 2.05 for free and don't believe them when they say they only have one DVD circulating in US so you have to wait. As long as there is one MDX in the lot with a newer version, they can upgrade from that system.
(Map)Coverage is the Database, that is run by the software(2.04 or 2.05). For the newer version of the database which is the DVD, you have to pay.
