Default Garmin Zumi Update

Has anyone updated the maps on a Garmin Zumi? I have a 2011 Road Glide Ultra CVO that came stock with the Garmin Zumi. It is pre-loaded with Harley Davidson dealerships in the US but it isn't real accurate. Last week I was headed to a dealer that I knew where it was but just for curiousity punched the location on the GPS. It took me over 5 miles away from the actual location. It also frequently will tell me the dealer location is on one side of the street and I'll get there to find it actually on the opposite side of the road. Just wondering if it's worth the cost of updating the maps. Has anyone paid for the updates and if so, what do you think? Thanks.

I guess I need some clairification prior to doing so. I think that there is only one "file" I am hestate to update as I may lose the other stuff (Programs) I have in there. Can anyone advise on this?????

The map updates are well worth it. Keep in mind, there is a difference between the map updates and the dealer POI. The dealer location POIs are locations on the map.

I have the "lifetime" map updates. The maps are updated 4 times a year.

Thanks and I guess I didn't realize the difference in updates and dealer POI's. Do you know if it's possible to update the dealer POI's?

Harley-Davidson dealer database update v6.00 as of May 2012..... don't know if this works with the Roadtech version or not.

I guess what I am asking when you update the "maps" does it over write the other info in there like Dives dinners & drive ins etc. ???????

Nope, just the map. It leaves your favorites and other stuff alone.

It does not over write your favorites or saved routes
