Rather than lash out on updating the inbuilt sat nav look at buying a new “stand-alone” one as most come with free lifetime map updates rather than having to pay every time.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

We have a Tomtom 6000 with lifetime updates already it's just that the pioneer is built into the dash and with a very big screen which helps when one has very old eyes. Having said that I probably won't bother updating the pioneer in the end.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

eBay has many offers of in car sat nav updates, don't know if you'll find one for your specific unit, but most I believe use one of a few available systems, if you can identify the system yours uses the updates mostly cost under £20.

I've used one supplier a couple of times now for my built in Citroen unit and very good with full instructions etc.

As VW want €199 to update the onboard Sat Nav, I found a supplier in Lithuania that can supply a VW labeled SD card €55 thats worked well two years ago. I see they are still advertising so might update again next year.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
