Question 2011 Nav System Update

Has anyone updated the firmware or maps in the navigation unit? My 2011 is still using the original maps from when I bought it. I've seen map updates for sale for $150, which is just ridiculous.

Has anyone updated the OEM factory maps or system firmware? Is it worth it, or would my $150 be better spent on an aftermarket head unit?

I did it once several years ago when they had a sale. For the number of times I use the navigation, it wasn't worth it.

I did it a few years ago when it was on sale for $99.
Kind of a bummer to have to pay so much for it, my Ford gets free Sync updates about once a year that include maps. And if that ever ends it has Android Auto and the google maps is always updated.

A haven't had navigation in my car, that is why I have installed Android head unit. It is very functional, and I think such device is much better than factory multimedia.

Hi
the name of the head unit is Smarty Trend, they have a site smarty-trend.com
I ordered it there. They even posted the photos from my installation there. If you are interesting you can watch the photos in examples of installed units.

I still have the oem navigation system for the 2013 sportage with us-maps. Does not work in europe, no maps. Kia is not able to help.


If anybody finds out how to install european maps or install android please let me know!
