    ye, me too........I am seriously considering the update given it would be most likely the last one.....$160 is not such a bad price.

    I dont know but I think the nav on our cars is butt ugly and not that great. I've only used it a few times and once it kept making me take the small inside roads, and when I tried to change course, it wont re-route right away but instead insist me on going back to its suggested route. I prefer the native nav on my Samsung Galaxy Note 2

    Re: Navigation Disk Upgrade Sale

    I got this e-mail as well. I was thinking about it but it still seems kinda expensive. Although the free shipping sweetens the deal lol. I am not sure but seems like you could get a decent Garmin or something similar for that money. Just wondering for people who have previously upgraded do you think it was worth it and did you notice that much of a difference compared to the older version?

    when I upgraded from the 08 maps to the 11 maps last year, it made a huge difference for me. More roads show up, better directions and a few more features were added such as the Detour option. I'm going to skip this one and if it is truly the last CTS update, oh well. (I always have my phone to get me there)
    RAB and RAB like this.

    Re: Navigation Disk Upgrade Sale

    I have the 2012 maps installed, and I have yet to see any difference in map detail (compared to the 2011 maps) for the areas of Ontario and Michigan I typically drive in. For anyone who has 2011 or 2012 maps installed, I'd recommend not purchasing the 2013 maps... unless the price drops to $50 or $75 (yeah, and as if that's ever going to happen). For $160 I'd prefer to buy a portable Garmin unit with lifetime map updates, and use it as supplementary back-up to the factory nav system when going on long trips. Using one of the latest portable units you also get some added features (compared to the factory nav) such as an accurate GPS-based speed reference and a continually updated display of the posted speed limit for the roads you're traveling on.
    BTW, I doubt we'll ever see map updates beyond the 2013 version for the 2nd gen CTS.

    Thanks for the input RAB. I do have the 2012 (2011 map date) update and agree with you 100%...if they cut the price to 100, I'll do it but otherwise, it's just not worth it. We just had a bypass built here locally and am sure it won't show up with this update anyway. (the road just opened a few months ago) It's a shame that ill never get to see the new road in my CTS but life goes on...lol.

    Just received the email too...

    What I don't get is how BMW and Merc can update their Nav's 12 years and still for their cars and Caddy is going to discontinue theirs after just 5 years.

    $160 doesn't sound good to me. You can buy a portable GPS with lifetime map updates for about the same price. Car manufacturers need to smarten up.

    Re: Navigation Disk Upgrade Sale

    Things that blow my mind with the nav we have...driving through mickey mouse land in Orlando...Interstate 4 is only referred to by its State Route number, it is not called "Interstate 4". How lame. And I am sure there are a lot of touristas who have no clue wtf that's all about. And when they end up in either Tampa or Daytona they realize they are lost.

    Car GPS is going the Google Maps route so as to provide continual updates, so what we are going through is a short-lived phenomenon.

    Does anyone know how to find out what date my current system is on? Purchased a used CTS but don't know whether previous owners may have updated the disk already.

    While in NAV screen press Info button on the console. Then select the NAV tab on the screen. It should show application and database rev info. Write it down and post here. I am sure someone will provide answer for you.
