    My old card had the number 8627147200 on it, but it was the old software.

    This is the part number I got from my local Toyota Dealer, but I’m having a hard time getting any info on it. Dealer only knew it was labeled as a ‘17 version.

    I use Waze on my phone. With realtime updates from other drivers it's the best.

    Getting a complimentary card from my dealer in a week or so. This, I assume, is owner installable?

    The sales person installed mine but received an error and brought the car to the service area. It only took a few minutes. I don't know what was needed but it is working fine now. The sales person had a hard time getting the card in so I suspect it was not seated properly.

    Thanks. The service rep I’m working with said procedure is basically installing card, turning car on, and letting it sit on for the 15 minutes or so it takes the new maps to install. I’ll report back on my results.

    What is the latest map version? I just bought a Prime and would like to know if I need to update the map.

    Not sure - I’ll post the date on my card when I get it from the dealer.

    Per post #4 above. . . . My vehicle was built August 20, 2017 and has Map version 05-37-51 Dated 2017-04-01

    In the past, new versions always came out in late fall. Nobody knows if this is still true until somebody gets a new one and post the info. There's some evidence they may have been releasing them during the year as well, but we don't know if that's only for vehicles coming off the line like mine.

    PS, change your vehicle type in your user profile.

    Absolutely. It's just an SD card. It's sort of hard to see since it's under the dash lip. Use your phone or a mirror to look at it first. It also has a different sort of card holder as compared to other Toyota NAV SD card slots I've seen. It has lips that stick out instead of just a card slot hole.

    Vehicle must be off when you remove and insert.

    It also will probably have the most recent Entune firmware update on it which is nice. They've been doing that for about a year or so.

    Picked up the map update today. Haven’t had a chance to install and see what date it reports. Attached are images of the card and packaging for reference.
