Hello,
I use CarPlay for navigation, so I really don't care if the car maps are up to date.

My question is is there any other value to updating besides getting map updates? I'm not sure what the current version of software is installed.

I would say yes for sure. It includes both system and navigation updates from what I understand. For example, I updated the software in my 2018 G80 the first time and all of a sudden I started getting text message notifications that I could either read when parked or listen to while driving.

Maybe that capability was there all along and it was just turned on by default with the update or even possibly had a bug that was fixed. Regardless, they are free for me right now so I definitely like to keep things up to date.

Why not? It is now a free download.

thx all....i didn't know it was free
Let my computer run three plus hours doing the download; all went well. I did an overwrite of my second upgrade SD card. I hope of what I suspect; the nav upgrades will be free to download in the future. It would be cost effective to Genesis if offered free; no SD card cost, and no shipping and handling cost. The $25 fee just doesn't cover it.

P.S. I used a SD micro, SD (dual socket) Card USB converter to make connection to my computer. Got it at Best Buy.

Can you load an SD card in the slot? The hardest part of the job is getting the cover off.

Car should be running and yes, you can drive it during the update but the radio won't work or the camera. When you hear the music start, it is done.

Ed,
Getting the cover off is no problem. Just nervous that I will mess something up updating it. Is it a plug in and follow directions?

Detailed instructions for installing the V13.0 map updates on my 2018 G80 Sport can be found here. I subsequently did the V14.0 updates and the process is very similar.

Then you conquered the hard part. Put the card in and let it do its thing. No user input needed. My last two just started on its own.

Hi Ed - do you know where I can find what the new features are with this latest update? I have a 2017 G80 Premium 9.2 in screen. I haven't found anything that tells us what this update brings. Thanks

I had version 14 installed and downloaded the currently available version which I expected to be version 14.5. My 2017 Genesis said I already had the just downloaded version installed. I went ahead and installed the one just downloaded anyway.

Bottom Line ~ Where and how can I now confirm what version is actually installed.
