Thx Roger. Guess there's no real reason to update at this point for me.

For the heck of it, I am trying what the dealer suggested and that was to contact Jensen. I rep. came back with the following:

Dear Ben,

You don't need a code. Download the 'tool box' to the computer and insert your SD card and from there everything is point and click.

Thank you for using Audiovox Electronics.
Ed.
Customer Service


It's getting closer, but I am getting an error, and it won't connect to their server. I thought if someone else would try the above, maybe they can get it to work.

PS: Go to Naviextras.com to get the Naviextras Toolbox software for a pc.

I see that Naviextras updates only works on Windows platform and of course I switched over 2 years ago to Apple and iMac. I don't think Forest Rivers has even started to build my MH yet anyway. Maybe it will come with the updated 2015Q1.

I finally got Naviextras Toolbox to work on another pc. It only updated voice and some languages. No new map info. Looks like I have to buy the latest US/Canada map update for $64.95 the get the 2015 Q1. Map data provided by Tom Tom. Has anyone done this yet? If so, was it worth it?

I use my Garmin for my navigation. I do use the Jensen GPS only because it provides a clock! I can't believe Ford could not put digital clock in the dash! I could use a watch but I basically stopped wearing one when I retired.

Would not waste your money on map updates. It's a farce and does virtually nothing to improve the maps. I get free up grades on my Garman and do not see any big difference except install red light camera locations voice and such. I got bit once on paying for a upgrade never again will I pay. Later RJD

The maps don't upgrade when you update your SD card. Just some language files etc. the only option offered is to purchase a map update.

Stagecoachdriver, I have a Mac as well, but I run Win 8.1 on it using Parallels Desktop. So, the PC only GPS update software runs fine on my Mac via the PC Virtual Machine.

I learned the hard way that Naviextras does not support Apple platforms. When I contacted them they basically told me to borrow somebody else's computer to download the update.

I couldn't imagine anyone letting me download anything on their personal computer...but, I found an option. Our local library has a dozen or so PC's available for patrons use. I found that they have built in card slots for the micro SD cards. I downloaded the Naviextras toolbox on the library computer, plugged in the micro SD card from my Jensen unit and it updated easy as you please. I registered on Naviextra's website a couple days before I did the download and didn't have any problem.
