Thank You for that info! I think that I can wait a few months also for the updates inorder to get the latest version.

Borrego Navigation upgrade experience

I'm the proud owner of a 2009 Borrego with an integrated Infinity audio and nav system. Purchased the vehicle new and it and the audio/nav system has been performing admirably for the past 5 years that I've had it. I've recently upgraded the nav and wanted to share my experience with it. The previous version was V_064 and the new version is V_0610_2.

First, thanks to those of you on this forum whose postings directed me to mapnsoft.com where I purchased the upgrade. I bought it for less than what I thought it would cost (it cost me $149 before tax and S/H). The software arrived in a nice USB in a well padded envelope along with good written and visual direction in a glossy manual. The upgrade process itself occurred as advertised. No bumps in the road during upgrade process. The experience was not unlike performing a computer software update or upgrade.

The first thing that surprised me about the process was that it is not just a map update, but a system upgrade. An update is when your wife puts on a new shade of lipstick. An upgrade is when you get a new wife. This was an upgrade. Whether that's a good or bad thing I'll leave to you to decide. But wanted to share my initial impressions of some of the good versus bad.

The good: All screens - the radio, satellite, USB/Aux, navigation, system - have been freshened up, some more than others, but they each still retain a familiar enough look that you can confidently whiz you way through things. I like that the pre-set radio button you select is now lit up in a more clearly distinguishable yellow-orange color. There is a new audio setting button on the radio, satellite and USB/Aux home screens that allows you directly access the bass/mid/treble settings. And more information is displayed on the same screen real estate when the radio text feature is turned on. When the text feature is off, that space is instead occupied by a cool old school looking horizontal radio tuning display.

The bad: Where the heck did the mute button go on the navigation screen? That was my favorite thing about the whole system! Now, to mute that voice, you'll have to go through the menu. That is a huge strike in my book. Also, any addresses you've saved in your nav system will be erased with this upgrade. Not a huge loss in my view because I have them saved elsewhere. But if you don't, then beware. And, needless to say, your saved pre-set radio stations are bye-bye. Not a big deal, I think.

On balance, I'm pleased to know that my trusty Borrego now has an updated map. And I like the refreshed look of all the screens. But whose idea was it to do away with that navigation mute button? Off with his head!

[UPDATE: I wish to RETRACT my comment about there being no mute button on the navigation screen. It does indeed exist. It appears only after a destination has been entered. I've duly done a forehead slap, a la V8 Juice commercial, and apologize to the hardworking developers, programmers, their family, spouses and progeny, and any others persons or creatures, living or to be born, who might have read or will read my comment about the non-existence of mute button with considerable chagrin. The nav mute button is alive. The universe is back in balance, all is right, and I'm in love with Borrego all over again.]
