I e-mailed one of the Chicago Tesla people and that's what he said. He said he wasn't sure if it was just a software update (he might be confusing it with the new firmware update that's out) or if it included new maps (I sent him the link about with the maps for $99) but that he would check with a service person tomorrow. I'd be surprised if it was included with annual service but figured it couldn't hurt to wait and find out.Really ??!!!
I received the paid map upgrade. It comes on a 4GB SD card. I'll try and install it later this week.
There is a firmware update on Alpine's website for free. The map update includes the map update and also an update of the interface as well. It seems like a minor update but does include one nice feature. To cancel a route, you only need to tap the screen twice instead of 5-6 times with the prior version.Any update? Is this only a map upgrade? What I really want is a firmware upgrade, maybe something to prevent my screen from blanking out, or keep the radio from locking up after I listen to sat.
I downloaded the firmware update from Alpine. Can someone tell me how to actually do the update?
I have the Alpine INA-W900
