Does anybody know how often these map updates are produced? Once a year, or more frequently?

Not sure, but at $200 a pop, I hope not very often because I don't plan on doing it again.

One weird issue... When you install ver9.5, the system displays it as running 8.47.44.552.004.1
It seems like that should be called version 8.5 but the whole numbers are one digit off from what your car actually displays.

I am guessing that since, before, my car displayed 7.47.65.001.001, maybe my car was running what they call version 8.5 before.?.?

Seems like a screwy system.

Hmmmm, I see only one digit difference, but this site says that your 3 at the end should be a 4 after the install....

I would assume you have maps 9.5 because it starts with 8.47, but maybe you are missing a minor firmware update (like SA201) or some update that does not come with the maps.?.? Not sure.

I haven't updated yet. This is the version I received in my new car three weeks ago.

I am guessing they gave it to you with the newer maps, but I do not know what would cause that small of a decimal number to change.

Maybe check w/ your dealer if you have all the updates based on your VIN.

-My dealership said I already had the SA201 update. (Mfr Campaign/Safety Recall Notice:SA201 - SA201 PSEV LOW VOLTAGE DC-DC CONVERTER https://www.flickr.com/photos/40085449@N04/24076249432)

-They said I did not need the SA203 per my VIN (SA203 (PSEV) LOW VOLTAGE DC - UPDA viewtopic.php?f=8&t=425&start=10)

-And SA206 is brand new, so I have not had it yet. It is not software, but replacing the center seat belt in the back seat.
