Looking at late spring, or early summer to order a Forester, and I will be checking this out prior signing!

That's exactly what happen to us. Ordered a new unit thru CW and when it was delivered from Elkhart to Salt Lake City, the driver activated it to find his way to the final destination . Then after the pdi, our unit sat at the dealer for another 3 weeks getting things fixed. By the time we got it home and we started familiarizing our self with the unit, the free 30 day update had run out. Make sure you get it updated while still at the dealer.

So how do I tell if I'm eligible for a free update? I was not able to see anything in the NAVI toolbox that made it obvious and the only information I could find in the program after the toolbox read the Jensen Micro SD card is shown in the attached photo.

That looks like you have the update available for free. Suggest you try to update immediately. I think the MicroSD card maybe still be too small for the update. I used an 8 GB. They only give you 30 days from activation to update, once expired it gets more involved.
Good Luck!

I will be trying this evening. The program did say there was not enough storage available for an update (just short by 20M) so I bought a 16G micro card today for $10.

You can select what regions to download - I got just USA and Canada. I don't plan on taking my RV to Mexico. Even though it's only 2 hours from here. That used to be something we all did - go to Mexico a couple of times a year to buy things and sightsee. But since the drug war it's far too risky for "rich" Americans with RVs.

"I don't plan on taking my RV to Mexico."

Hell No! My wife doesn't even want to fly into Mexico anymore.

Canada, now that's a possibility.

NewRVer,
When did you buy your MH? Check maps installed. 2015 Q3 is the latest. They give you 30 days from first activation. Check in Naviextras in upper left corner for you device details. If within 30 days, you should be able to just update for FREE.
If over 30 days, they honored mine within 30 days of my purchase. I clicked on Support and Customer care and scrolled thru to send a question. Asked how can I get my FREE map update as the end user when the MH Nav radio was activated prior to my purchase? They came back a few days later requesting proof of purchase. Must be done within 30 days of your purchase for them to honor it.
I sent that in and a few days later received a reply stating I had 7 days to install it. The authorization was already to go and I only had to insert the SDmirco card. Original 3 GB card was to small and I used an 8 GB I had.
Good Luck!

The new updates also say something about including Premium POI's for Free now. Not sure exactly how useful that would be. Thoughts?

Picked up our RV two weeks ago. I am trying to remember the steps that the GPS walked me through when I put my first address in. I don't really recall but there is a chance that I might have been the first person to use the GPS. I will check device details again when I get home but I don't remember that providing any detail indicating when the system was first used.
