    NAV update

    So I was driving in this morning and I started wondering how one can check what level the GPS maps are and how to update them. I asked the dealer this when I first got the car and he said he thought there was a usb device. Any thoughts? My maps seem to be pretty current, but I have no way of verifying that. I found where you can get a map number, but that means nothing to me unless I know the GPS manufacturer.

    I'm shopping for an SX with tech and premium and plan on getting this update right away since I want to start out with good maps.

    *EDIT* Well, I'll check the map version first and make sure it's not already updated!. There's a manual you can download from that site (mapnsoft) that shows how to perform the update and check map version.

    Has anyone had a problem getting the navigation system to recalculate an alternative route rather than just trying to get you to double back at every exit. There were other clear options available but system just refused to use them right up to the very end (I knew where I was going and just was testing system). Am I not understanding how to force recalculation functin? Our Garmin picked up on it right away. Thanks.
