I am another one who hates these built in navigation systems in cars...well the ones that are provided by money grabbing 3rd parties...Our CX5 has the TomTom maps and if I want to update these (just once, can't get a subscription etc), it costs more than if I was to buy a TomTom device with lifetime maps subscription....they are having a in our case, navigation is never used on the builtin device and we just use the apple/google maps navigation from the various phones in the car (and now avoid anything from TomTom as a matter of principal :D) 


Good luck with the upgrade though - I too am hopeful that manufacturers start to think about these things from a consumers perspective.

Hi all, 


So would downloading the opensource files at and then unzipping the file, copying the file then on a USB flash drive work?


I'm really disappointed that I can not get any map updates yet. I have the 2014 maps and to be honest that isn't good enough.
