'05 ESV - Navigation Update and Firmware Q's - 2013 maps not available?
Did some searching through the boards already and have a couple q's still. My father-in-law has an '05 ESV with what is probably the original nav software and maps. Want to give him an update for his birthday.
The Navteq site (http://allthingsnav.navigation.com/) only shows a 2012 update available: GM - North America Map Update - v.2012 SKU# 22846887
For newer models there is a 2013 map available - any idea why the '05 wouldn't also have a 2013 map?
Also, I'm a bit confused as to how to update the firmware/software on the unit itself. From what it sounds like, these newer map updates do not have any software updates included? I.e., they only have map updates?
If that's the case, any idea how to update the software on the unit as well? How can I determine the software version on the unit?
Lots of questions - hopefully not FAQ!

The most current version is GM Part #22846887, Version 10.4, which is a 2012 Disc for a 2005 Escalade Touchscreen.
