updating navigation system map data

I am trying to find information on how to update the navigation systems map data. Page 63 of MTC guide mentions that for updating navigation map data, refer to www.Maserati.com I have looked everywhere on the site and couldn't find any guidance around map updates. Does anybody know if the map data is user upgradeable or does it require dealer update?

I know that Garmin provides free or paid lifetime map updates, is that something that is applicable to MTC?
A new major highway upgrade with tens of new exits and connectors has opened in the greater Vancouver area and I have a new Garmin map update for my portable Garmin GPS and I'd like to get the update for my car too.

Regards,

Shouldn't the 2014 version already be in this car since it is a 2014 model?

Thanks for your reply, I had seen that item before I posted, if you read the description of that item, it has nothing to do with Ghibli and the new MTC. That item only provides limited European map update for older navigation system in previous generation QP and GT.

So, still any help with new MTC based navigation map update is appreciated. Please note that Garmin issues at least issues 4 map updates for North America per year.

Regards,

So, I have 2014 model, and now it is 2015. Recently my Navigation System suggested to update the map. So, I have gone to my dealer to see how much it will cost? They quoted me around 900 bucks for map update! I was flabbergasted. I never heard about such a price to update maps. Than they explained to me that they need to replace entire panel to update maps!

Is that so?

Did anyone try to update map on their 2014 model? Just curious?

Thank you.

That sounds ridiculous.

As of a few weeks ago there were no map updates for the unit. One is expected to come soon. It might even be able to be downloaded over air with Nav unit or disc or usb.

I got a similar screen request to update ... directed me to the Chrysler site for files. That's why I checked with my aftermarket sales rep.

I'll send him a note and see if there are any updates.

Well... So when I got the message from navigation system that I should update, I first went to website for uconnect. Apparently there were options to update the maps for several automakers such as: Dodge, Jeep, Ram etc and Maserati was listed as well. Selecting Lancia for instance allows me to buy map by downloading it. However, for Maserati it simple says: "See Your Dealer for map update information". Hence, my visit in dealership.

My Maserati service adviser just responded this morning there is no available update method or agreed upon price yet for the 2014 Ghibli Navigation system.

I use Mainline in Devon, PA outside of Philly which is a 90 minute drive for me ... can't beat their pro-activeness in calling me with updates, experienced service mechanics and response times. Might want to consider a change in Maserati service if your dealer is looking to charge you $900 for this service.

Garage
$900 are they smoking something? The map update should be free. Also it should update directly, no trip to dealer required. It's no different than your cell phone nav doing an update.
