Updating my sat nav
The website seems to suggest that it depends which version of the satnav software you have.
As Andrew said it looks like you need Mapcare which you can’t get on Seats in this country.
Opting for built-in satellite navigation in a new car can be a costly affair, with makers charging as much as £2,100 for a factory-fit system.
And you don’t stop paying there, either: with new roads constantly being built, the sat-nav in your car could soon need updating.
The new software replaces your old mapping data with the latest available from Route66.
Please note this is for RAC200 and RAC215 UK mapping.
Richard also claimed that the dealership concerned now has large signs around its showroom explaining the update costs.After investigating further, he got back to us, saying: “We don’t make any money on that charge as we have to pay so much for the licence down the line to various people.We would like them to be much cheaper.” Eventually, Richard managed to get the update free of charge.Actually, that’s a bit unfair as the changes normally make it better for everyone in the long run, but in the meantime it can be quite frustrating.Luckily, your Sat Nav is designed to escort you around the diversions and road blocks, and Garmin are constantly updating their maps with new roads, rules and routes.
