Mine is five years old and decided not to update. Instead I carry a $100 portable TomTom for backup any time I go on long trips which can be refreshed free.
Also carry my android tablet for long distance for added safety. Car companies should realize that times have changed and it is not 2006 when portable GPS devices had limited platform. If you are very much depended on the gps for your day top day driving and need to use other navigation features such as traffic info and alternate route then an annual $250 expense is worth it.
