So I was told by my sales person that Uconnect Map updates get automatically pushed the vehicle. True?

Quick research sounds like it is true,, but my phone still updates faster and more often.

The problem with phones as GPS is the data streaming, native iOS/Android maps get unrelated as you drive. Google Maps lets you create offline maps, but most of it’s functions only work with a data connection.

I’ve grown used to built in vehicle navigation, even if the experience is usually horrible, it’s the most reliable GPS other than a Garmin (etc) device.

FWIW I have a Garmin Overander but I only use it when I’m off-road, sometimes. For off-road maps, Gaia or OnX Off-road or even AllTerrains are my first choice.
