Updating map kia sportage navigation system
You will get another number in return which you have to enter onto the NAV system prior to the software update.
You just write down your code when you register it, that code is exclusive to that drive/software.
So there’s an expectation that the same should be true of their car’s maps.” In fact, a survey conducted by HERE* found that 74 per cent of respondents expected map updates to be a free part of what they receive with a new vehicle. First launched with Volvo in Europe in 2009, if your car’s manufacturer is part of the program, it’s normally a part of the free service package you receive when you buy a car and lasts for around three years or more. Laurent says, “Our vision is that every driver with a car equipped with a navigation system deserves an always up-to-date map, included in the price of the vehicle.
HERE Map Care is poised to become the industry standard for achieving this.” Currently 23 automotive makers offer Map Care with their more technologically advanced vehicles.
I'm wondering if we have to download the updates onto a flash drive from the Kia website. I contacted my local service dept and was told that updates are provided via: a fee.
If we do this all we'd have to do is plug the flash into the USB and voila..update will install....guessing. The lastest version available for the 09 Sportage is the August 2008 map that is currently installed.
An updated Navigation system will save you valuable time and money at the gas pump by recommending the most efficient routes to your desired destinations.
One person says there are free and update over the air automatically. If I remember correctly, you have to enter the serial number located on the sticker on the USB stick onto a form on the website.

How will those in-car maps be kept up-to-date over the life of the vehicle?
Map Care program manager Laurent Vernerey tells us, “People get regular map updates for their smartphones, and for personal navigation devices from the likes of Garmin.I could not find any mention of the cost for an update anywhere on the site.
