Hi

Quick one this - are there updates available for the nav in the 458? I've found precious little info on Google about it, but I presume there must have been some updates in its lifetime?

I have inquired at a dealer and go no joy. It is hard to believe that 2010/11 458's shipped with the same maps database as the current cars ?

Thanks.

That mirrors my experience as well. Will do a bit of digging then I guess. Like you I find it hard to believe 2015 Italias etc have the 2010 maps.

Are they even 2010? My 2015 car doesn't have the Reims autoroute bypass which I think was completed in 2008 or similar. I've created a mount for an iPad mini between the heater controls and console using Co-pilot software and it works brilliantly although voice is a bit quiet so I'm waiting for a bluetooth speaker to arrive

You could be right. Nokia bought out Navteq in 2008, so who knows whether that was a limited partnership with Ferrari that wasn't renewed.

It's strange in this day and age that there is very little info available on Navteqmaps updates on Ferrari. I guess most owners don't care?

I had a similar response from a Ferrari dealer - it seemed like a question they seldom get asked?

I was told there is no part number for an updated DVD.
Do new cars till ship with this system, if so can the Nav version number be interrogated ?

You can definitely get the version, it's one of the menu options when you're on the nav screen. Sorry that doesn't help much, but I do remember seeing it in my car.

If as F355GTS says he hasn't got routes that were changed in 2008 on a 2015 car, then I would guess everyone has the same version? Seems incredible if so, even Porsche who I thought were particularly pedestrian at updating their factory nav managed to do it every couple of years or so.

Also - isn't the nav on a hard drive? I seem to recall someone on another forum saying that there is a 30GB hard drive somewhere in the car, and if you have nav only 20GB of it is useable?

F only issued 1 update for 458 sat nav during its life in ~2011. Now its EOL there won't be any further updates. Graypaul/Sytner used to list on their after sales service offers, but it is no longer there following their website redesign.

In the menus of the sat nav it says go to navteq.com to get updates, and here is your VIN number. Pointless of course as navteq does not sell F nav updates.

For reference my nav NIT software (not map data) is listed as 14.08.20, with nav data version 9.10.2.339064.

Official word from Ferrari UK who have also spoken to the factory direct regarding the Sat Nav updates. The last and most current update disc they have is 2011/2012.

Staggering, really, especially given how much nav seems to be pushed for resale etc. Thanks all for your efforts in getting to the bottom of this.
