Default GPS DVD's so EXPENSIVE!! Mdv08d for Eclipse AVN-5435

So does anybody have a solution for getting a hold of a MAP DVD disc for the eclipse AVN5435? They want 350 bucks for the MDV08D disk!!! I paid 1600 dollars for my head unit! Is it fair that someone can update their GPS unit for free that they bought for 180 bucks??? And they can do it online via USB cable?

My GPS is about useless...matter of fact it is useless it doesn't even know the name of the streets that are almost a decade old! Please somebody help!

WAHHHH stop whining. You bought an expensive navigation system with a proprietary navi/map system. Coming here and complaining and then ASKING someone how to seal it really isn't going to get you anything.

what's really worse is that even the newest map discs from Eclipse are still a couple of years behind. It's a joke.

I agree with your frustration. Mine's not new but when I bought my AVN-5500 back in 2006 the maps were about 3 years old. The major expressway just minutes from my home was completed 30 months prior to me buying the unit. The disc had no clue.

I encourage everyone to buy a stand alone unit that's easier and cheaper to upgrade, and more versatile that you can use walking, hiking, biking, for tours, finding your car in a huge parking lot, you name it, and at the rate technology improves and prices drop, it has never made sense to me to get a built-in GPS in a car that you plan to keep for years.

Or, if you don't plan to keep your car, it makes even less sense to get a built-in.

Just my opinion. I have a great Garmin for $150 that I've used in all the ways mentioned above, as well as in more than one car, and friend's cars, that I can upgrade for $70.

The OP's situation though, is sadly, not altogether different from people who get cell phones with plans that cost twice as much as the phone did. They are going to get you one way or another.

What doesn't make sense to you does to others. If we're talking about a GPS like the iPhone I can understand keeping it with you because it's slim. But most of those normal suction cup to your windshield units are still too big to carry in a pocket comfortably, especially in the summer.

Although I would see the benefit in finding your car in a big parking lot how often do you need to and is it worth carrying it around? For hiking I guess it depends on where you go and what type of hiking, but most of the in car units are not very useful compared to the hand held units with trail maps, accurate topography and being able to get a signal easy.

Also a lot of newer units can get upgraded maps for around the same as the hand held units and it's an easier process.

Agreed here...Garmin GPS is the way to go (have owned Nuvie 350 and currently Nuv 765t). Even if I have to get a map update it is only $50-$70 for an update rather than $350.

Anyone know the model number of the navi unit for an 08 WRX? I think it's Kenwood, but couldn't find the model number in any of the documentation.
