    Is there any info about navigation map updates - how to apply, where to get, what areas is covered (when I plan to travel)

    I have Plug-in Prius with Go2

    Sorry no one has responded yet. It's probably because we don't know how this is done in Estonia. In the US, updating the maps requires a trip to the dealer and (from what I've read) about $100. Per year. I refuse to do that when my Garmin GPS gets free updates.

    There are threads here, though about when the updates are released if you google them. But it may not be the same in all countries.

    Since about the '16 models, there is a plugin chip that the owner can change out.
    I think the cost is about the same.

    You do not have to do it every year.
    I do mine every two or three.

    They put in dozens of new streets and roads every year around here. But you're right that the maps probably don't need to be perfectly up to date.

    And adding those roads doesn't automatically put them on the map updates. IIRC, the data used to make navigation files is likely a year old.

    I was told by my Toyota dealership that the updated maps/navigation are out. I have an appointment on Monday, April 22nd to get my navigation system updated.

    I/we will be VERY interested in knowing what they are going to charge you for unplugging the old chip and plugging in the new one......that is accessible right there on the dash.

    On the web site, when I checked today, it was $169 to do it myself. I don't think so!!!
