    If you want to update your maps you have to buy the newest SD card. Not sure off the top of my head what the part number is as I haven’t updated mine in a few years.

    I wonder if you can use another mapping app.

    o do this, access your Toyota's menu.Select Setup, then select Bluetooth.Finally, open your phone and select your car from the list of possible devices. Once you do this, you can route your directions through your car speakers by using the Google Maps app on your phone!

    SSO hybrid bumper, Warn winch, RCI skid trilogy, RRW sliders, everything in the cheap/free mods thread, and of course the frame recall work.
    And they only work with internet access on a smartphone. Built in sat nav works without either.

    I paid more, but got mine right from my dealer ($80). 100% confident, unlike the hacked Chinesium ftom Amazon. Comes with easy to follow instructions with pictures. Took only a few minutes to do.

    And Toyota maps doesn’t do funky routings. I have had google and Waze do some strange routings.

    For Waze and google maps you need to turn on/off options like
    Shortest distance
    Avoid tolls
    Shortest time, you risk the reroute to save a minute but sometimes it’s a 20 min delay due to an accident

    wife uses Waze.
    I like google maps, restaurant rating works too.

    My truck has the non-JBL premium auto which has dynamic navigation. Maps are in the cloud so you always get the most current available plus traffic alerts. Truck came with a 3 year free trial so I have a little less than a year left before I have to buy the subscription. It's been very reliable and I figure either I pay to update the maps or I pay to buy the subscription, so I will buy it.

    I have had the complete opposite of results.
    See @asuchemist reply

    I drive all over rural areas, and very rarely these days are more than a couple miles to the next tower,, if I ever do loose signal, which the map will keeping running anyways. The Toyota GPS has been horrible for me, it is almost always late at reporting construction, traffic, accidents, etc,,, way too late, I will have driven in to a complete standstill before it will turn the highway color red and start alerting me about alternative routes.
