This has been going on for years but in a slightly different way.

My 2014 LST D-Max has a GPS in the Clarion head unit. I got one free update which I used in 2015 but still the maps were a year old. :BangHead:

Now I just use my phone or tablet.  :dontknow:
2014 LST Ash Beige. SMM Steel canopy, Outback Drawers, dual battery with 2 x 160W solar panels (keeps the beers nice and cold), 135L tank, TJM T15 alloy bar with Xray-vision LED lights, Dumbo Clearview Mirrors. The ultimate tow truck.
