    I doubt we will be able to get the maps via software off the web, would be nice though.

    :(I talked to my local dealership and they told me the navi update will come out in November. Toyota will send a post card out to let the owners know that it is available. The price is $220 but from November through January 1st, they will have a special on it for $160. I guess $160 is better than $220. :(

    When you get the post card will you let us know? I have a "FLTRUCKS Special " so I won't be getting a post card. I'm planning on picking up the upgrade when available. :)

    I used to use the Garmins. Great product with lifetime maps. Toyota disappointed me when they said they charge for maps. I will let everyone know when I receive a postcard.

    Just got a quote on update. $ 179 for the update, $ 105 for installation. Toyota is out of their fucking mind. Better off with a Garmin Nuvi.

    Stay tuned...
    That's crazy. Your phone's Navigation through Google broadcasts through your stereo for free when connected via Bluetooth. You'd think factory nav updates would be something a dealer would throw in for free to build customer loyalty.

    What the hell are they installing? It's a micro sd card. I assume that what you have. Toyota is really crazy.

    Any new information about map updates? Is the ONLY way to get the update is be bent over by the dealer? I have checked everywhere online, and no one seems to offer map updates for the "Entune" type of NAV unit. You can find a 2016 NAVI DVD on Fleabay for around 40 bucks or so, but I'm assuming that and $.50 would buy me a cup of coffee.

    Anyone?

    When you bought your truck with nav, did you really expect the dealer to charge a reasonable price for an update? Or did you think they would be free as long as you owned the truck?

    I would expect entune navigation map updates to be free for the life of a $35,000 truck. Just for customer loyalty...

    I can see Garmin charging for updates as they sell the device for cost, much like ink-jet printers, and make their money on supplies. IE map upgrades & updates - vs- ink cartridges...

    But on a vehicle with a built in navigation device....

    I expected a reasonable price. Wife has a 2009 Acura TSX. 3 year update from Acura (3 annual updates) is $ 299. This is a reasonable price in my opinion. Based on this from a competitor, it doesn't seem unrealistic to expect a fair price.

    Most Garmin units are "LM", which means Lifetime Maps. You don't pay for updating the maps. It's included in the purchase price.

    I would never expect anything reasonably priced from a car dealer, that's how they make money.
    But that's just me. It never crossed my mind to get the nav unit, simply because I knew if I wanted updates I would be at the mercy of the dealer. A little homework or ask a salesman a few questions before you buy can save you mucho green backs.
