Add me to the "no SD card" party. Bought a 2019 TourX yesterday and no navigation SD card. Noticed the card wasn't there when looking at the car and Navigation wouldn't work without it during the test drive. Before I left, I got it in writing that they owe me one still. I'll reach out in a few days if they don't contact me first, and will escalate it as needed from there.Same issue. Car delivered with no sd card and calls to dealer go unreturned.
Cars with the older Infotainment system have maps loaded to internal storage. I believe those models require the purchase of a USB map update which is then loaded onto the car whereas those with the new Intellilink 3 system require the purchase of a new SD card to replace the existing card when an update is required.Since my TourX has no card and has Nav., does that mean none of the red needled TourX with nav. need the card?
Not clear on map updates, and is that different for carded and non-carded TourX versions?
Please tell me updates are done automatically as they are available at no cost...I believe the older red needle cars have an over-the-air update to their maps.
I would say lets race see how detuned the white needle cars are... seems people with white needle cars are running 15 second quarters whereas red needle road tests are near mid 14's. Not to mention speed limited to 130 compared to red needled cars with limiter set 30 mph higher.I also have red needles and have enjoyed watching the tides change as folks at one point were seeking white needled cars only.
It does seem that the red needle cars infotainment is more stable and potentially sound better (not sure if this second point was ever confirmed). If I ever do come across another TourX owner, one of the first questions I will ask is if I can listen to their white needled system for comparison. However, while I think the red needle dash looks better, I do think the white needle screen graphics look cleaner, split screen is cool, and flac compatibility is neat.
Back to your question....I'm pretty sure the answer to free map updates is a resounding "NO".
You are correct, it's off the shelf item. When my dealer ordered one, it arrived in 2 days.Ask to speak to the dealership owner or GM! Are they saying it takes 6 weeks because it must be specially made for your car? My understanding is that the SD card is an off the shelf item. Good luck
