Did you know there is a possibility to download some updates for your navigation system. If you go to system menu, there is an option called something like "download..." (I don't remember exactly). I was wondering if you tried this or not? Speak up!

Part of the operating system for the NAVI is on the DVD and is loaded into the ROM of the head unit. When you update the disk it overwrites the boot code and some of the op system from the DVD.

If you want to go back a level (like back to 2.03 from 2.05 to get rid of all it's errors) you would use this procedure. If not you would have a 2.03 database operated on by a 2.05 op system.

So, 2.05 has lots of errors? I have 2.03 and was wondering if it would be worth upgrading to 2.05. Is the database upgraded as well?

2.05 has additional coverage but at this time it would make more sense to wait for the anticipated upgrade this fall. Rumors are that entire USA will be mapped.

I will be looking forward to it then. There are no cities with detailed coverage in Arkansas. I know it is not that populated, but I would expect detailed coverage in a few of it's larger towns. Heard any dates out there for its release yet? And what do you mean by the "whole" U.S.? Do you mean that most cities will have detailed coverage?

No coverage in Arkansas.....That is your punishment for giving the rest of the nation Bill Clinton....Just kidding, (kind of).

2.05 may have some of Arkansas covered but if the rumors are correct the next upgrade will have virtually all the USA mapped.

I have heard October was to be the release date of the next upgrade.

Here are a few other threads with more info:
