Thanks for the info Creativeparts. Perhaps we should update our maps for $65 and submit claims to FR warranty saying we've been given outdated units, or is that basically what you've done?

Sage don't you think they will do another update in 2016 maybe Q1 if there last was 2015Q1 I asked them but haven't got a response as of yet but I think you get all the updates for a year when you pay for the update probably from the date you paid for it

There were two pricing schemes - one price for a one-time update and a $10 higher price for a full year of updates. I got the impression that the map updates were not all that frequent. And they said there were no guarantees that there would be more updates during the year.

We paid for an update this year and took the rig from NC to Missouri and back. The unit was able to stay connected and navigate the Ozarks back roads when my phone kept dropping connections. There were some roads that it didn't have a name for but it came up with proper names for every turn we took and it kept pace with Google maps at pretty much every turn. That being said, Google maps is free, accessible from my phone and ipad, and I don't have to fight the submenus. Even though we may drop signals here and there on the back roads the Mrs and I probably won't update the maps again. I can't justify the cost when my phone keeps up 99% of the time.

How much data do you need to do that would be cheaper for me to get 70$ update every 15 months

I have a 10 GB plan and rarely use 2 GB of it. The rest goes to the teens :-)

My DW likes to tether her iPad to her iPhone WiFi hotspot and use Google maps and satellite view. Gets her an aerial view and it lists POI and businesses.

Really? We only have 3 GB and never go over. Have gotten close when we had 2 trips in 1 month.
