: '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!

Thanks,
shane

Once the new map disk is in the radio it will load and update to the newer disk
FYI the version of the map software is on the map DVD
