    I was hoping my 14 Hybrid would have had the newer system since it came out in June of that year when the 15 ICE versions were also out.

    I installed mine like a week ago and i cant use google maps as I have verizon unlimited data so I can't tether. I called them the very same they and it looks like I might be able to get tethering form them for an extra cost. The rest works really nice.

    I downloaded it last night. The download took forever... it isn't all that special. But it was a free upgrade and I will play around with Google maps I guess.

    I'm wondering why that is. Maybe ours will get added at a later date. Hopefully.

    Aside from Google Maps making navigation a little more user friendly, I won't be using this much.
