Just this morning when i use navigation it said map needs update. So when I got home I downloaded it to usb waiting more than 2hrs to finished. Then plugged it to car usb but its very hard to know when it was done unlike the one on my pilot there some status bar to see its complete. But this one like your waiting forever. From acurazine forums they says 90 mins...sigh...

Apologies if this is a silly question, but did you plug your USB stick into the correct USB port in the car? One is for data/charging, the other is for charging only.

I have no idea why they thought was an idea.

I posted about this last night in my TLX review., still waiting for approval. Installing map update in the car took over an hour, and there is no progress bar to let you know something is actually happening. Anyway, it finally got done, and my map is updated to a March 2021 Version . If your USB is blinking , assume that progress is being made. IMO its ridiculous that these map updates cannot be done over wifi.

It's a huge download for wifi into a car. My BMW always had to be updated through USB.

From the Acura Nav Website: "

And now, updating your map is easier and more convenient with fresh map available to download four times a year at no additional cost."

Yea, my flavor of USB blinked red for over an hour. I left it updating without the car running, on accessory mode. Be sure to turn off your air if you do it that way. Perhaps you need to redownload it onto the USB ? Did you format the USB drive, prior to downloading?

Mine took a little over an hour to download to the USB but installed into the car in about 50 minutes. As mentioned above, I put the car into accessory mode and plugged in the USB. Restarted the car after it was done and I have the 2021 maps now.

I can confirm what flatlandTLX said. The car must be in accessory mode with the USB blinking to work. Mine took less than an hour. My wife's new 21 RDX took the same amount of time.

When I set up my map update profile, I was given the option to use wi-fi or USB. I chose wi-fi and used my home wi-fi connection. It still took around an hour with no progress bar. I believe what I did was attempt to access the navigation screen and could not while the update was in progress. I could when update completed. That was how I determined the process had ended.
