Actually, they are only offering a free upgrad WITH the maps to customers who have purchased iGuidance in the last 2 months. Otherwise you get the updated version WITHOUT the maps for $14. So, no money out of their pocket if you get the update WITHOUT the maps. I agree that $14 is a bit high. I can understand the cost of shipping + cd's. So maybe $5-$7 would be a more fair price.Originally Posted by hd54321
You cannot recieve the update (without maps) if you didnt buy iGuidance. Period. You have to provide them with so much info, it would be impossible otherwise. You even stated so in the last paragraph of your post. So your thievery theory is wrong. They are simply overcharging "because they can."
If you want the updates with the maps you have to pay full price (or upgrade price) if you didnt purchase iGuidance within the last 2 months.
Some sort of internet registration/authentication on their website to be able to download updates and content would probably be worth while for iNav. If they expect to stay in business in this day and age, they will have to implement it. I understand that it will cost more money and time to develope, but that's just the price of business. If they **** off enough customers, they will eventually go under. Which personally, I would hate to see since their software is so good.
Back on track: All in all, I look forward to iGuidance 2.1, but iNav needs to change some of their company policies, or they won't be around for long.
