The ASA website is pretty disorganized, so I'm not completely sure how accurate this information is for the JRV9000, because I originally found it by looking up the VX7020A, which is a little less competent (only one camera input).
Go to JRV9000R Touchscreen AM/FM/ Navigation/Bluetooth Multimedia System
Download the navigation manual, which is not accessible directly for the JRV9000, but is accessible directly for the VX7020A. Indeed the page suggests that it is only for models VM9726BTC, VX7020A.
It says that for those units, you have a 30 day period after purchasing the unit in which you can get the latest maps for free. After that, you have to buy the maps. If that policy also applies to the JRV9000 maps, it suggests waiting to do the installation until you are at a point where you really want the latest maps.
That document also has a link to the map provider, NavieExtras. Following that link, it says that the map updates are also for the JRV9000, as well as the Magnadyne M4-LCD, which is standard equipment on my 2025 Berk 34QS. Thus, getting the Jensen doesn't seem to give any advantage in getting a better map update policy than I currently have in my Berk.
I notice that they will give a one-time set of maps for Canada, US and Mexico for $69.95, and a one-year sequence of updates for the same countries for $89.95.
