Default new map updates

There are new map updates coming out on Dec.7. It will be version 9.5. @ $149.99. not sure if there are any updates to the system other tan the maps. junction view is a little different, adds HOV lanes.
I see the 2016 K900 is listed as having a touch screen as well as the rotary dial. rotary dial will now vibrate when selecting new selection. I see where the touch screen may be limited to the Korean model.
V6 and new UVO app coming next year, later in the year, gives remote locking and vehicle tracking functions from the phone app

If I could wish for something I would wish for touch screen .In my view so far it is the only real negative I have found since I purchased in June . The Navigation system works fine.I can search for say Starbucks but It doesn't seem to allow me to add just Starbucks rather than all coffee shops as a POI that shows up like gas stations . on my map display . If the updated map is going to cost me $150 I will live with the old map as I rarely use my navigation and when I do its mostly to a downtown address say in a neighbouring city ( we often drive down to Seattle for the weekend) where updating usually has little or no changes

They will have to offer some good upgrades with the map update or it isn't worth
spending that money on it.
I agree it would have been great to have a touch screen. My nav. works really well
here in Arizona.

I really like that it not only shows you your next turn but the turn after that.
Handy so you know what lane to be in as soon as you make the first turn.

I might do the update if it's available here in Canada. I don't mind not having the touch screen, it keeps finger prints off of it. Hey funnyman, I should get you a Starbucks card, lol 2nd time I saw you bring it up. Am a Tim guy

I expect I will be upgrading the maps, I wish it could incorporate ApplePlay or the mobile app that is on my '16 Soul EV (all electric). I know they say the '16 K9 will have a similar app.

Bad news mapnsoft wants to charge you $149.00 for the map and $149.00 for the media update.
That's a total of $298.00
Complete ripoff and it's a bullshit media update

I saw that last night, I was set to order but now I want to see a list of what's different and what my money will be paying for.
