FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS



  1. Do I need the map update? Will my system work without it?
    If you haven’t updated your vehicle’s GPS navigation system map in the past year or more, then you need a map update. Without a map update your system will be missing important data including new and modified roads, addresses, and points of interest. This information greatly improves your navigation system’s routing accuracy and overall functionality. For further details, select the appropriate brand from the menu above to find your map update.


  2. How much does an update cost?
    Map update pricing varies by automotive brand, navigation system, and the map coverage area (country or group of countries). Select the appropriate brand from the menu above to find the product and price for your vehicle.


  3. Why aren’t map updates free?
    When you purchase a HERE map update, you get a high-quality, manufacturer-approved product. Unlike apps or portable devices, each HERE map update is optimized to your vehicle, a process that requires intensive data gathering and product testing.


  4. When and how often are map updates released?
    Most manufacturers release a new map update once a year. The exact timing of the new release varies by brand and navigation system.


  5. Can I install the map update myself?
    In most cases, map updates sold on navigation.com can be installed by the vehicle owner. Product pages will confirm whether or not dealer installation is required. Select the appropriate brand from the menu above to learn more about the map update for your vehicle.


  6. What media are used to update my navigation system?
    Standard physical media for map updates include DVDs, SD cards, and USB sticks. The specific media for your vehicle’s navigation system will be listed on the map update product page. Select the appropriate brand from the menu above to find your map update.


  7. Will the map update DVD for my vehicle work in other vehicles?
    Generally speaking, no. Map updates are unique to a specific vehicle’s navigation system. Navigation systems vary from model to model and, in some instances, from year to year.


  8. My map does not contain a road that I know exists. How can I report this?
    We make every effort to provide maps that are an accurate, up-to-date reflection of your world. If your navigation system map displays a discrepancy, please use our Map Creator program to notify us.
