$149? Yikes. I am more than happy to use my iPhone.

Nevermind, just realized this was just for MY2014,

$149 is the standard price for map updates for previous model years, too. (The update for my wife's Outback is $200) That said, this is notable because the MY14 folks have not have had an update available for several years now...

It is a map update released in 2015 for MY2014. No one appears to know what the dates for the actual maps are. And those that I have seen attempt to buy, could not.

Just checked the date on MY2014 and its Mar 2013 for the maps. Chances are I will be getting this upgrade sometime soon. Be curious to know what the dates are for the this new update and for those who have MY2015.

My guess is MY2015 maps will not be released until May 2016. So those of us with MY2015 vehicles will have to wait another year for an update.

...and the NAV will get worse and worse as the highway infrastructure changes.

It's not so bad if I know approximately where I am going but in a strange town, it sucks and I am planning on doing a cross country to Denver in July.

They are available but the customer service lady said you can only order them on line and the online system is having issues accepting the request code. She said to check back next week. *face palm*

Online ordering has been working since at least mid afternoon. Ordered the update for my MY2014 around 2:20PM MDT and it shipped early evening. Should be here Friday.

Hmm, the direct link works but when I go to navigate through on my own it says the update will not be available until May 26.

I asked about what the item listed as '1 software USB' is and turns out its just pre-install instructions for the installation. This update will only update the maps and not the functionality of the NAV/UConnect system.

perhaps somebody can post their experience with the new maps once they install. Thanks.

Can't seem to find this question easily answered - do all MY14 have the same map release? I assume so but mine was a later build (July '14) so didn't want to spend $149 on something which only updates my maps by a year or so as I don't travel enough to Strange New Places to justify the cost.

Of course, the second part of your post (date of the new updates) would also be useful in assessing value.

Thanks.
