Nav question - how recent is the map data you get, and how often do they update it? Do you have any idea what the DVDs cost? I'm just curious because my neighborhood is brand new. The road I live on didn't exist 4 months ago. In fact, it's JUST now showing up on google maps. Just wondering how that would work w/ the Nav...
I'd be very surprised if the Acadia's system is that current. Typically, the manufacturers release (read: sell) updated disks about once a year. Even then, the maps usually lag 6 months to more than year. All the manufacturers buy their mapping data from a couple of mapping companies, and then format the data for their specific navi systems.
