Updating acura navigation system
The actual navigation system of Acura is an Alpine unit running Windows CE on a SH-4 processor.There is the program called Dumpnavi which will pull out and modify the files contained in a . Some of the things that can be done by this program are changing the background picture to your own personal image, removing the words "Navigation Screen" at the beginning screen, and change some of the words that pop up.
This is because by having up to date maps on your navigation system you will no longer become lost, adding unnecessary mileage onto your journey.
I don't mind paying a reasonable fee for current maps, but two hundred bucks is way out of line.
From what I can determine the companies behind factory-installed navigation systems normally update the maps every year or two, so staying current is an expensive proposition.
The specific media for your vehicle's navigation system will be listed on the map update product page.
Last Update December 12th, 2017: The new 2018 Acura Navigation System Update is out now available to purchase on DVD.
