To clarify, it is free if the dealer does the update? They don't charge you for the SD Card they ordered to install it? Thank you.
This is correct. At least it was in my case. They ordered the SD card and called me to say it was in. I made an appt to then have it installed. The dealer has a mechanism to charge Genesis for the update. It may be charged as warranty work, I'm not sure.

Hi All,
Earlier I wrote, "Warning: Preset radio stations and saved addresses may be deleted after update."

Last eve, I did an "Export Address Book" to a 256 mb memory stick. Easy and went well. It saved my 85 contacts and provided insurance for the next map update.

Import/Export Address Book.

I have a 2018 G80 Ultimate with a 9.2 Display.

To do a backup of the Address Book to a USB memory stick:

Accessory On - no need to start the engine - your choice.
This is built into the system; not a necessary part of upgrading the GPS

Menu (Console Button)
Settings (Dial using knob)
Other Settings (Dial using knob)
Import/Export

Plug in memory stick and make your choice.

The answer to your third question, Names and locations starting with "A", no more than once. Names and places starting with "Z"... LOTS!

Take care,
Don

PS Corrected: Changed Home to Menu

I had the same thing at first. The web page would not accept my VIN at first for some reason. A few days later it did.
You have to go to Genesis Mapcare | Customer Login and set up an account. Once you do, it will tell you if an update is available. In my case, it shows I have part no. G115P2 and no update is available. Bought the car in late October so it may be the latest. I know it is different than my 2015 I traded.
I was having difficulty getting info on map updates. After some research, the dealership finally ordered an update for me. Knowing I can go online and do it myself is a huge plus. This link is exactly what I needed. Thanks!!

My car was supposedly updated by the dealer. MapnSoft still from what I can see has the wrong information. My brother has lived in a new development for almost four years and it still has the streets wrong. On Route 202 in Pa the speed limits are wrong. Free yearly updates are supposed to be available on the 2017 G80 so why are they charging some people. None of this makes sense.
not surprising, a lot of the updates don't get in unless a customer reports them for investigation, mapnsoft has a link for this.

on one of the routes I take to work, the major hwy was under construction to be widened from 2012-2014 the work completed in 2014 and version 12.5 from 12-2019 still tries to route me around this "major construction". and on my primary route the street right in front of my office has been closed since 2015 as they are lowering the road and building a railroad bridge over it for the metro subway/train station up the street, so the train goes over the highway instead of blocking traffic every 30 minutes, it is expected to be close through 2022 for this construction, yet the maps don't indicate this and try to route me directly through a 40 foot deep hole that is being dug.

Classic map update latency. I'm doing the 13.0 update primarily to get the current firmware to our vintage 2015 version. So the maps are a bonus.

Installed mine today. My street is a year old but still not on it. I can't find my way home yet.
I've not checked out any other features yet.
How long did the update take to finish?

Thanks to all who have contributed to this post it has been very informational. I went on this site today for the first time. Put in my vin and my car and everything came right up. It says there is an update to my map. (I just bought the car in Feb 19. But it was an executive driven car and says the activation date was 10-24-18 expiration 10-24-21. So I guess I will try and get my third update a month or 2 before that end date. NEW MAP UPDATE IS AVAILABLE - NA.12.41.51.592 (v13.0) (Version 13) I'm going to check what version is on my car today. If there are 2 a year, I think I might skip this one and get every other one.
