New 2017 Brown DVD Map Update For TLX

Finally released, in the US, for $99.00 & free shipping (they did charge me tax). I got an email from them yesterday announcing its availability (been out of stock since January?). Here's the link. Note: Make sure you have an X on your Database Version. I chose the free shipping, so expect it by the end of the week. Will post back upon installation.

Please let us know if there are any improvements in usability(speed, response, etc). I can deal with the navi being not intuitive, but response time is a killer.

I just checked and it's not available in Canada. I see that it is for the US. Strange.

I'm just hoping it stops taking me past my destination, then takes me on a big square and then back to my destination. Very aggravating, though it has only happened twice, and both in the same town. Hope springs eternal.

I'm actually more concerned about the length of time it take to install- I've read some pretty scary times (2-3 hours) with the engine on.

Nice thought but they are tied to Vin, Software, Database and Device #s . I don't believe Honda wants us sharing.

When you get to the checkout, it asks for device id, database version, as well as VIN. I'm thinking it won't be able to be shared.

No it won't. Unless you have the same Vin and Device #'s I have. Honda is so mean.

@OP. Try updating with the vehicle in on mode but the gasoline engine shut off. Like when we used to have keys and had to turn the keyhole back then, we would put it in position 2 and not position 3. Just connect the battery to a portable battery back or trickle charger if you have one. Most dealers update their vehicles using this method. When we used to have a Volvo, we did that all the time. Otherwise the garage would be filled with exhaust gases and the mechanics (in the garage) would be dead.

Doesn't hurt to try. I highly doubt they're going to customize each and every single disc so it only works with one car. Only thing you'll waste is your time by trying. And drain some battery from your vehicle while the update is ongoing.

Looks like they have stopped supporting 2015s.... v2 is for TLX 2015-16... v3 is for TLX 2016 ????

Also odd when you go to this link: http://acuranavi.navigation.com/home/en_US/AcuraNA/USD

They don't take you to v3 when you select 2016 TLX.
