I'm not sure what model ours is, it came with the car. I know you have to pay for new maps though. We haven't had to update it though, it knows pretty much everywhere we go.

It takes about 2-3 seconds to recalculate the route though.

That sucks how you have to pay just to download updated maps. Man, I hate that. But using the Nav system is free right? No monthly subscriptions?

In California, they're ALWAYS building new streets with new commercial buildings, malls, restaurants, etc., and towns are expanding outwards into the deserts!!!!

There's no monthly fee, but I'm pretty sure you have to pay for updated maps for any GPS...

The newer GPS's have the entire US loaded onto it, maybe even some of Canada, and Mexico to. The older ones you had to load only a few states at a time because it didn't have enough internal memory.

TomTom's are okay. I guess they've improved, but the first TomTom's sucked.

I like Garmin and Magellan. They're a bit expensive, but they SOOO good. Especially Garmin.

Once this gets put in, no more Google Earth, MapQuest, Yahoo Maps, and all the rest. Directions on the fly, man that's going to save time.

It does. Another useful thing is that they contain (or at least mine does..) basically preset destinations. So if you don't know the area you're in, and you need a gas station or a restaurant...
