Two points - Generally you don't need to update nav maps all that often, though perhaps if you depend on the points-of-interest a lot you might. I never felt the need to update on my previous vehicle; sure, some roads changed in the four years I owned it but by and large the rest of the roads stayed in the same place.

Second - it's very expensive to update via the dealer, so valid point. Fortunately we have the Internet and it's *MUCH* cheaper if you can update via Sergej (aka *******).
