Jensen GPS VM9726BT Software

Hi, I have a new 2016 Solera 24 R with the Jensen VM9726BT Unit with all the bells and whistles.

I've been reading the posts about the promises (unkept) of Map Updates. I discovered that the actual GPS software is called IGO Primo and is available on numerous platforms. Here's a clip from the iTunes store:

North America - iGO primo app
By NNG Global Services Kft.

This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad
$24.99
Category: Navigation
Updated: Jun 11, 2015
Version: 2.7.0
Size: 435 MB
Languages: English, French, Spanish
Seller: NNG Global Services Kft.
© 2012 NNG Ltd.
Rated 4+

Notice that it is Version 2.7.0

What's New in Version 2.7.0
PLEASE READ THIS WARNING BEFORE YOU UPDATE THE APP!!!
After you install this update, ALL MAPS FROM THE APP WILL TEMPORARILY DISAPPEAR. To access them, please enter the Shop in the app, and download the latest maps for free. This move is needed because as of this version of the software, maps are not part of the base app. They appear in the Shop within the application as InApp items. Updates will remain free, but you can download or update them independently of the software and you can choose which maps to download in order to better manage the memory usage of your phone.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but this was a necessary step in order to give you a better user experience and a space-saving product in the future.
Thank you for choosing iGO primo as your navigation.

I read nothing there that applies to us. It only runs on your iphone or ipad - not on your Jensen.

I'm leaving on a 3,000 mile trip tomorrow - so I sucked it up and purchased the updated maps. They were 6 gigs so you have to get a new micro SD card to hold the files. I found a 16 gig Micro SD for $14 and used that.

The maps, and POI updates etc total cost $80.

Not happy about it. But I had already run into issues with the old maps not being uptodate.

More Info on iGO primo NAV Software

Here's a link to NNG's iGO primo NAV App:

iGO primo | NNG

The hardware looks similar to ours with perhaps a bigger screen:

Here's a clip from their "latest Innovation:

The latest innovation from NNG

NavFusion™, the freshest feature of iGO Navigation provides a simple and future-proof way to integrate smartphones into vehicles. The infotainment system is fully functional as it leaves the factory. Downloading and using the free smartphone application is optional.

NavFusion™ essentials

When NavFusion™ connects the smartphone to the car, all data is automatically synchronized, including the map and content package in the user’s smartphone and head unit, by using the phone’s internet connectivity. This approach is available to any car with iGO Navigation software in its infotainment system. It merges the ”App Store” ecosystem and the very personal nature of the smartphone, enabling the use of navigation inside and outside car.

Seems like the rest of NNG's customers are getting more enhancements than we are

Creative, when you have time, could check and see if the new update will bring up the following
street in West Jordan, Utah. The street name is Wilshire. Hope you have a good time and safe trip tomorrow. Thx, Ben

I wonder if Kenwood, Sony or somebody else makes one that would be plug and play with the Jensen cables, but runs Garmin on it?

Sanpedroflyer, did you try this with your radio and if so, what is the date on the map software? We have the same radio in our Coach. Thx, Ben

2012 maps here, too late for free update when I bought it. 2 1/2 months after initial start up date. FR and Jensen should complain, maybe I should demand a new radio with current update!
Plus I think the radio should have weather mode. Not a good RV radio, for partying, yes!

All of this has me confused can someone help me out? I think I need to do the following.
1. download the toolbox to my PC and save the file.
2. Copy the file to an SD card and load it in the GPS.
3. This will allow me to see the date the GPS was first turned on?
There wasn't an sd card in my radio when I got the unit, did everyone else get one?
