    It's been quite a while since I've seen it , but I got a "you're maps are now up to date" notification. I wasnt on wifi at the time.
    This is my 1st notification in this car. It's an 89k VIN. Last car was an 34K VIN

    On the 17" display, just like the regular software update popup. I've never seen the map update in three years of ownership.

    Got one today also. Also my first one. My car is a March '15 delivery. Immediate tried it on my way to work and indeed noticed that a definite maps bug (The Nav telling me to make a right turn where the road is simply going straight) has been fixed. Made me happy... :smile:

    Still nothing - 3 year old P85... Navigation software still thinks it takes me 5 minutes to drive past 3 houses on my street.

    Is there a way to discover what version of the maps I have? My car was built in September 2015 so maybe it has the latest...?
    If not, I'll have to find some place to park it where there is WiFi, as my own WiFi does not reach to my parking space.

    Congratulations! Next time you have to take 70 into St. Louis, can you see if it recognizes the Musial bridge?

    I've seen this before, at the St. Augustine Outlets where the superchargers are located. If the road information isn't complete but address information is, it will do this.

    Thanks @FlasherZ. I took your suggestion and contacted Tesla re: the map update. Here's what I just got back.

    Hello Mr. Snow,

    Thank you for reaching out to Tesla Motors Technical Support.

    I am not aware of any changes/updates in the Navigation. However, my colleagues have already submitted your request for a firmware update to your Navigation, if available.


    Thanks,

    Hmmm... odd. I was always under the impression that the maps were downloaded dynamically from Google as they were required; and so would always be up to date.

    Technically speaking, is a map ever up to date? Do they pause making new roads :)?

    There are two sets of maps. Navigon maps are housed within your MS and used for routing and I believe display on the IC, so your Nav can operate even if there is no internet connection. That route is then used to display upon dynamically downloaded Google Maps for the 17" assuming of course you have an Internet connection -- and hence why some people are upset (in other threads) when the two don't match or a place they are looking for can't be found as a destination in their MS, but show up on Google Maps. The updates everyone is talking about in this thread are for the Navigon version -- similar to what nearly all other mfgrs charge $100-200 each time for annually-produced updates to their onboard mapping and POI database if a customer elects to update them.

    Since Tesla is saying there is no map update it would be great if someone that gets it take a picture of the 17" and post it.
