Does anyone know if the maps were updated in the 2007 Goldwing NAVI and if there are any operational changes?

I have a gay friend who just bought a loaded wing. I can ask him and see what he has to say. He is pretty smart and was on jeapordy and won a bunch of money. :yes1:

So,
I ask a legit question on a goldwing board and some feel compelled to salt in some crap about gays. If that is all you have to offer I suggest you get a CB radio and find a new forum for your obvious obsession. It seems that we have two absolutely different topics in mind.

Just picked up my 07 today.

Found it had the CN7 on it, not the 8.

Now wonder how I go about updating without using a PC.

Can you order an updated card from Garmin and how much?

I don't know the first thing about a GPS.

Gotta admit that stereo really rocks, even compared to the EC amp setup I had on my 04.

BTW,

How much did you pay, if you do not mind me asking?

He just mentioned that his friend was gay and smart. Sounded like a simple statement to me...but then again...never mind.

Not a great deal of difference. Just some updated road information. Honda has the basic system limited so badly that really it is not worth the update IMHO. Some owners have bought a 2nd card, downloaded the update from Garmin, paid the $75 for the unlock code and updated it.

I have used mine for over 8,000 miles since June and get along ok with it. If you come from a color StreetPilot III like I did it lacks a lot. It is clearly a automotive type of GPS and has it limits. The power GPS type of user may not be happy. Even at this it is a rather complex piece of gear with a 143 page manual just for the GPS. Getting back to the CN7 vers CN8 I bet you would be hard pressed to see the changes. Again the big problems with the unit an update of the map isn't going to fix.

I hope this helps you a bite enjoy your new wing and the GPS unit.

I suspect they Navi system is similar to the one in my wifes 2006 acura TL. It provided all I have ever needed. Even in the car, manipulating the system while driving is a distraction, zoom and direction list is about it, using the cursor take my eyes off the road, especially risky where I drive and use the system.

Right you are, Chris... My bad

My dealer told me no '07 airbags for a while. I just assumed he meant all options... :oops:


Stay safe,


Lance
