Better yet is just to get the screen (no nav) and then use Apple Car Play our Android Auto for nav. Your nav on your phone will always be up todate.
With no NAV offered with the 7" screen, looks like I'll have no choice. Wish the phone apps were not such data hogs.

Goigle Maps and Waze don't use much data.

Btw, does anyone know if Waze works through Android Auto?

Another reason I'm glad to have Android over Apple. Some of the most tech savvy people I know have Apple. I don't know how they can stand its self-imposed limitations.

Thanks for the link!
You can use both google maps and waze on CarPlay...you know that right? Apple doesn’t make you use their maps only.
You can put whatever app you want on your phone. They do that, in addition to making it run smoother, more stable, and more user friendly...

DanW...I believe that you will be able to update your NAV unit wirelessly. Our peeve is having to pay more than $100/year for the update...and depending on when you update...the update may be a year or more out of date! You also cannot add additional map data such as POIs, etc.

Has anyone tried voice commands for navigation?
For my 2012 I bought a higher model Garmin with a glass screen. I also got the Daystar tray mount to hold the Garmin as opposed to windshield mount. Very easy to see and I only talk to it. "Computer,starbucks,three,navigate".
It will still make the random Garmin error sometimes. I have sent them corrections for which they thank you for. Overall, way better than the 2012 Jeep Nav system.
