Only one way to find out...

My gut feeling is no. I'm sure that you will have to link it to a Nuvi to activate the subscription, and I think it's a strong bet that the Device ID of the Nav system wouldn't be supported.

Of course, I could be wrong and it would work fine.

FYI, just today my nav popped up with a message that my maps are out of date and that I can go to www.garmin.com/chrysler

My guess is that your Target purchase would not work.

If instead, you went to Target and bought a nuvi with lifetime maps, you'd be set. Much newer maps than you'd get from Chrysler. Plus, you'd have a backup nuvi that you could use in another car.

Can you elaborate? Allnav



I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

just a quick question, if I order the CD and try to do the update by myself is it going to be ok?

I have seen some comments that while updating the nav, system goes down and some people had to go to the dealer. I certainly dont want that. But if its safe I will order the new update..

Thanks.

I'm always leery of doing something like this as well, after I once bricked my Sony Blu-Ray player trying to update it.

It pisses me off that this is possible in modern electronics; IMHO, the original factory instruction set should always be kept in backup ROM, and any patches should always update a separate area. On startup, if an error occurs, reflash the original factory settings to allow the machine to work properly instead of leaving it in an unrepairable state.
