A map update helps your navigation system keep up with a changing world. Consider the facts. Each year, thousands of new miles of highway are added across the U.S. At the same time, roads change, there are new addresses and subdivisions, and businesses and stores open and close. That makes a map update essential for traveling with confidence.
Your vehicle’s navigation system is designed to improve your route efficiency. Taking it may help save you valuable time and reduce fuel costs.* Driving more efficiently can also help minimize wear and tear on your vehicle. A map update can help your navigation system perform as efficiently as possible, which may also help you save time and money.

To keep your navigation system performing at its best, it is important to update your map every time a new map is released. That’s because up to 15% of roads and points of interest change between each map update release. The chart below provides a point of interest count comparison by year that shows how much maps change between annual updates.
Points of interest, or POIs, are important destinations that you should know about as you travel. Some POIs are landmarks or interesting places to visit, such as state parks. Others are exciting destinations, including restaurants, shopping and golf courses. POIs also include essential services, such as ATMs, gas stations, parking lots and pharmacies. It is important to note that there are thousands of POIs added between each map update. In addition, many POIs close or change their locations, so it pays to have the latest map update information. (Refer to the chart below to see examples of how POIs change annually.)
† Counts listed represent approximate quantities of updates to HERE map data only and may not be available across all navigation systems.
