Map updates for Mygig RER Nav?
 
I was wondering where can I find map updates for my RER Nav radio? Any place where I can download the update? Thanks

No:( , I'm planning an out of state trip and I want to make sure that my maps are up to date. I want to update the maps for cheap and not spend alot of $$$, but if Navteq is the only place to get the update then bye-bye $225 lol.

Navteq is your ONLY choice. The lowest price I have ever seen is a $199 promo with free shipping, but they add sales tax. The updates require your vehicle VIN to compute the unlock key and therefore cannot be copied to another vehicle.

Keep in mind that even a new update does not add coverage to all areas. I bit the bullet and updated my maps which were 3 years old. There are newer businesses in my area that are a couple years old yet they are still not listed on the new update.

It's a little over two years old. The Application version is probably U0035-0070-801, the "8" representing the 2008 release. They have since released "901" (2009) and just recently, "001" (2010).

Well since I could find no other options of finding the map update cheaper I bit the bullet and bought the update disc from Navteq. There is alot of new and realigned roads in my area,and they just built a new major highway in the city Im traveling to, so it will probably be worth it to have a more accurate nav.

If I add a MyGig to a 2007 that already has the REC.. am I able to update the maps since my VIN number won't match up?

The mygig pulls your vin from the computer so you shouldn't have any problems, it took my jeep awhile to acquire the vin from the pcm once I installed the radio.
