I highlighted the bold part of your statement here. If you have a CVO, there will be two free map updates..... if they ever update them.:surprise:Actually if you want a new bike and you enjoy being frustrated to near death then the New Boom is the way to go. If you're on a busy open highway with a million signs telling you where you are then it works pretty well. Pick a back road and enjoy the excitement of being directed into a pine tree thicket across a culvert as you scream " Rushmore"! Of course I'm not being fair, it tells me every time I plot a course that some parts are not verified. Like the road in front if my house is not verified. The latest map update for the "best motorcycle infotainment" system in the world is Q2-2013. I can understand that and don't necessarily disagree with the dates but it's full of holes and I didn't expect that for amount the system adds to the bike. The radio sucks big time. For two grand it's a joke and we've been had. I was so interested in the feel of the bike I paid little attention to the sound. I knew it was weak compared to my Eglide but again I was taking them at their word and during my road test I paid too little attention to the GPS and sadly the radio. I love riding the bike but for what I paid I would have stayed with the other bike until they fixed the mess. I did do an update to the system firmware. Easy enough. NOTE: A firmware free update is not a map update. In 2035 when Naviextras updates to new version 2013 Q3 you'll have to pay $155 dollars to update the maps. Given its so sorry no one is expected to update. If you've ever owned a Honda automobile with GPS you can relate to how sorry the mapping is. Something for you to note- 1-map updates aren't free, 2-the radio design leaves little room for upgrades other than HD or Rokker expensive offerings. I did the magic box and 100 watt per channel amp and infinity speakers. The dynamics logarithm built into the head unit is nasty. Even with my setup music sounds terrible 50mph and up. I've added a klockwerks shield. It doesn't help with the sound issues. If you like talk radio or news, for some reason that is fairly clear. Most ideas state to add amps and have the dealer program the unit 3- it freezes every now and then. Just pull over and turn the bike off for a minute and that usually fixes it. 4- Bluetooth does NOT sync with headphones, just your phone. 5- text received by the unit cannot be seen or heard while moving- wasted effort really. 6- each time you power up it takes a good thirty seconds for it to become operational. 7- it syncs well with your phone and charges it via usb.
When I analyze all of the don't s' and the one or two do's it's clear this was all about up grading you to a 2 grand option that's useless until you spend another 2 grand. Just my ouch speaking. Hope it helps.
