I have a 2017 QX60 with 2016 maps. Just got the email to get version 11 for $109. Can't find any information on the extent of updates or even when v11 was released. Would it be worth updating?



Yes, I can use my phone but do like the convenience of the Nav if it's mostly up-to-date (which the 2016 is not at least for the region I am in).

Hum...I just got an offer to upgrade my Nav to version 10 for $129. Your offer is better—newer for less!

Depends where you live. Are there lots of new roads being built? Where I am, they almost never build anything. So definitely not worth it. If I'm stuck, I'll use my phone. And I only use my phone for POI stuff.

South Florida definitely gets a lot of construction so I'd consider a 2019 or 2020 map upgrade. But I'm waiting for the discounted price they were doing before that I missed by being stupid. I think it was $99? I'll wait!

I upgrade about every three years. I had the 2013 JX and now have the 2016 QX60. I upgraded last year and didn’t see any of the new roads or their revisions updated which was similar to the experience with the JX. I find Google mapping much more accurate.

$129 for 2013-15 v10 comes with DVD.
$109 for 2016-18 v11 comes with SD.

I'm curious to know why they're not releasing v11 on DVD.

v11 is on SD. Just guessing older models did not have SD slot. Also hoping SD update is faster than the 2 hours I've heard for DVD, especially as SD stays in slot. Anyone know SD update time?

Installed v11 this morning. Map info shows a Fall 2018 date. The license key required to be entered after swapping out SD cards is printed on the receipt page -- wasn't clear from instructions. Install was immediate with no need to keep car running afterwards.

Got an email back from HERE maps and v11 was released October 2018. He said they update every 12-18 months.

I received a map-update letter, and current DVD-version is showing v11. Strange that v11 was updated in Oct 2018 and it’s still current. I wonder if the DVD’s are behind.

BTW, it’s going for a low low price of $129.. so no deal here.
