Navigation Update?

Wondering if anyone knew where the cheapest option to update the navigation on my stock unit is. I went to Navtech's website, but im not paying $125 for a version of maps that's already 2 years old and outdated. Anyone have a better source?

Navigation Update?

Iíd wait for VW to send you an offer in mail for paying $99. They send it to me every year.

Current price on VW website is $125 plus shipping and tax.

I donít think they offer new versions past 2016.

On the other hand, this site gives me the impression we had 2017 maps available when looking at list of applicable vehicles:

Maybe a shortage of the product? You could call a dealer...

Don't bother. I've bought two updates and barely any new roads were added anywhere. And they never update POI or speed limits. Not worth $50 even, considering what you get
