Acura Navigation DVD 2017 – What’s Included
If you decide to purchase the latest map updates from HERE for your Acura in-dashboard GPS system then you will benefit from wide map coverage including the United States, Canada, and North America. Last year there were around 20,000 new miles of road either added to the road network, or had aspects to them changed – none of which will be present on your existing Acura GPS – which is why you should update with the new Acura DVD map update 2017 – which has recently been released. You will get access to millions of updated business addresses and points of interest files (POIs) meaning you can make the most of your driving in 2017 and beyond.
Why Update Acura GPS Maps?
Every year there are new roads and directions being added to the road networks in the United States and North America. In fact, research suggests that there can be as many as 20,000 miles worth of changes, new roads, re-prioritizations, and updates occurring each and every year. This presents a problem for drivers who have a GPS device, because a GPS physically stores the mapping software and data to the system. Because of this, there is only one way in which a driver can be sure that their Acura GPS is completely up to date with the latest Acura map update – and that’s to purchase and install new Acura Navigation System updates.
In addition to the fact you are getting coverage of all road, highway, address, and street changes, it will also potentially save you money in the long run if your Acura GPS has the most up to date maps on it. This might sounds like a wild suggestion; however, there is some scientific fact behind it. Drivers who use fresh GPS maps are less likely to get lost or take a long turning. This has the knock-on effect of adding more miles onto their road trips each year. So by having the new Acura Navigation DVD you will ultimately spend less time behind the wheel, save on fuel costs, and subsequently even help to reduce your carbon footprint and CO2 emissions. Below is a table which shows you the savings to be made should you install new Acura GPS map updates from disc (numbers based on the average American driver and 2012 fuel costs).

What is HERE Acura MapCare?
When you buy Acura Navigation updates you will notice that you are given the option to choose a MapCare version of the navigation DVD and disc. But what is this? It costs a little bit more than the standard Acura navigation system update, but make the process of keeping your car’s GPS map updates more current and lets you save money. It lets you purchase either 2 or 3 years worth of Acura GPS map updates in advance, meaning you save money (up to 33%) when compared to simply buying a new DVD once a year.
Acura Navigation DVD Download
Unfortunately it is not yet possible to download the Acura Navigation Update DVD. You can only install direct from an official HERE disc. If you do find a website that offers torrent, hacked, or download versions of the Acura map update disc then do not attempt to install it. By doing so you could potentially damage your in-dashboard GPS system and also invalidate any guarantee or warranties that you have with the manufacturer. In addition to that, hacked versions of the Acura Navigation DVD will not load properly as every customer has a unique identification and serial number that can only be used once. Always buy official map updates.
