Still only gives us map update to end 2010. It does however allow us to use NT maps in our Navi equipped Goldwings, and so gets us into the Lifetime update era. Anyone who is competent with a computer can borrow the files off that CF card and do the job themselves with a little coaching, and for less than $90 plus shipping.

This is a LEGAL original CF card. Not a copy. I could have stolen it as well but I have a respect for intellectual property. Shouldn't everyone be paid for their labor?

I guess that would depend. Garmin and Honda both originally screwed us royally on 2006 to 2010 wings, with no updates, and when they did update, they wanted $260 for the updated CF cards. Then in 2009, they went to NT mapping, and left the Goldwings with no possibility of upgrades. After enough Goldwing owners wrote the heads of Honda and Garmin, they came out with this LEGAL CF card update. I purchased it also. HOWEVER, I do not ride such a high moral horse that I am not willing to share with those who are less fortunate financially than I am. My first post in this thread was not an attack on your way of life, so I had not expected to be attacked in return. I feel that those who worked so hard to get Garmin and Honda to even upgrade these CF carded (and 2009 and 2010 SD carded) units deserve their updates for free. Without them, there would be no update. And by the way - these updates have been shipping since October.

As I responded, "This is a LEGAL original CF card. Not a copy." I was not attacking your values just stating the facts. If you think pirating other peoples labor is OK, irrespective of the rationale, then that is your business not mine. I'm just trying to sell something I earned with my labor. Sorry if I offended you.
