1. the competition updates MUCH more frequently (Garmin does 3-4 updates a year)
2. the pricing is outrageous. I paid $60 two years ago to get updates forever on a Garmin.
Nissan needs to keep up with the competition or there will be lots of people driving Leafs with aftermarket GPS units mounted on the dashboard.
Amen to the above post! I have lifetime FREE updates on my $95 (on sale @ Target) Tom-Tom portable unit. IMHO, putting GPS in the Leaf (less than 100nm range) was silly anyway. I've never used mine, since 95% of my driving is within 25mi of my house. Nissan could have put the money to better use by including a battery temp management system in this car.
