How do I update my garmin navagation sys.
 
I will have owned my 2013 JGC Ltd. for one year in a few weeks. I can't seem to find any instruction on how to update the in dash Garmin GPS. My wife has an after market Garmin given to her as a gift with life time upgrade. All's I do is plug it into my computer, go on line to gGarmin and within 1-2 hours its completely updated for the lower 48. Certainly can't plug my in dash into my computer. I have the 430 system, and it does have a CD player. Is that how I might up date it? Purchase a CD? The car was built in late july 2012 so it seems an update might be necessary. Your Comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Can you bring your JGC to the dealer and have them upgrade the maps? Thinking maybe they buy a yearly copy for this service. The maps are about $150 but I have no idea what the dealer would charge.

Don't know. Probably have to give your service department a call.

You Need to purchase the DVD for the update I just did that takes about 4hrs to down load. Cost about $150. Not a good buy.will not do it again

What year is your Jeep?

I just checked Navteq and they show no updates yet for the 2013 JGC. It says check back soon.

Thanks for doing that for me. Yes I just did it also and see the same thing. It seems new map updates are available every 6 months to a year. I purchased the life time map update for my portable Gps and was the best purchase I've ever made for $89. $150 for a DVD update seems a bit radical. I plan on driving out west next spring and that is why I am interested in doing it. I would certainly do it only once at that price. The car was built 15 months ago, seems an update should exist by now. Thanks

From the reading I've done about factory built in nav units, the updates are usually around two years apart, and cost around $150 across most manufacturers. I knew this going in when I bought my '14 JGC. It's the first vehicle I've owned with a built in nav. I've been using a Garmin with lifetime updates for years. I really like the convenience and ease of use with the built in unit, but there are trade offs.
