I just spent the last few hours reading thru 10 years of post on updating navigation and i'm still l lost.
I have version 2.5 and want to upgrade to 2.8 or 2.9.
i have a 2012 with software version 2.5 and maps with 2011.31

I have an external garmin gps that i can pull the latest garmin maps from and i know who to unlock them.

is the latest software version all together once i pull the maps from my external gps?

thanks

Mike

Getting maps from a separate portable GPS is a far less expensive alternative to purchasing the updated Nav data card from Garmin, but it doesn't update the POIs, the list of Honda dealers and I'm not sure what else. Garmin is currently offering an updated Nav data card for the 2012-2017 bikes for $95 which includes current maps (well, 2019.10) which is way better than they've been offering. Personally, since I've been updating my maps from my portable GPS since 2015, I've decided to purchase the update to get updated versions of these other files.
