Hold on to your wallet.......$200.00 for an update could have bought 3 garmins and threw them away and got new ones with new maps Ya that Nav is worth itJaywalker said:Does anyone know how to update the firmware/Map SD for the Navigation/Satellite/Radio? Does GM/Chevy send out updates or information on where to get the updates from?
I actually like the navigation. I do not intend to update the maps annually. I think I can make the current map last for two to three years.fourmoremarine said:
I would recommend contacting GM navigation support at 1-877-NAV-DISC (1-877-628-3472). The hours of operation are Mon.-Fri. 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM EST. Please feel free to keep me posted. Thank you.Jaywalker said:Thanks for the information on updating the Nav Maps, but what about the firmware updates? I have a Pioneer NAV/DVD/XM unit in my other vehicle and I've updated the firmware on that thing at least three times in the past three years. Most to the updates are for the XM parts of the unit which updates the channel information or compatibility issues with IPOD's or USB devices. How does GM/Chevy update these NAV/XM units?
Equinox Navigation is GPS based not disk based. It needs an over the air update from GM.fourmoremarine said:

A new on ramp to the highway was put in recently near my house and it isn't showing up on my system just yet.
For the amount it cost for the vehicle new you’d think it would be a lifetime of maps as long as you own the car. Tom Tom $175 and life time of maps , Chevy $200 every couple of years .
