    Update delayed under advice from Maserati Technical due to an issue updating someone else's car. Not really bothered as long as I get the update before Sept.

    Dropped my car in for a service today, and the SatNav update. Sadly the map update was still reporting 'unknown file type' or some such so the dealer wasn't able to update the maps. Saved me a little cash for now but I'd really like to get the update done before we go away at the end of August. Time to try another dealer?

    It's not particularly cheap, but what is on this car, at £150 or so but less than I thought it would be. It's a dealer upload so my car is booked in for just before Easter. It'll be good to drive up the A1(M) without telling me I'm in a field and trying to direct me onto a road.
    Yes my sat nav puts me in a field sometimes. Usually when it hasn't been used for a while. It finds its way back to the road after a few minutes though. I guess the sat nav is hunting for a satellite for a while.

    I have read on the U.S Ghibli site some owners doing updates using the Garmin update page selecting Chrysler or Dodge and downloading onto a memory stick and then uploading into the car. Not sure if it possible for UK/European maps but potentially could save a lot of money.

    The cost is the same for the maps alone as Maserati are proposing to charge me. One of the things I want is the updated dealer network for when I'm travelling so I really want the Maser ones.

    Bumping this thread to ask is anyone has had this done successfully? I'm now thinking about ringing around other dealers, even though that'll mean taking a day off work, in order to get the update done.

    Mine is playing up again and I want the (same) dealer to fix it now. Fed up of re installs not fixing the issue

    I've pretty much given up on this now. Nothing back from the local MD and another one I spoke to about it said that they'd done it but had customers complaining that the data is still old, missing postcodes and the like. So I'll just put up with the out dated maps for the moment and think about it again next year if there is another update.

    Why Maserati won't let adventurous customers update their own map data I've no idea. They can always have a disclaimer and charge the usual small fortune to put it right if anyone does break their system. That said its just maps for goodness sake, copying files from a USB stick onto the internal storage. There is even an menu option in the MTC to do it. Its not exactly rocket science.
