Just my 2 cents worth: My 2008's navigation has been ignored by Honda. For considerably less than $95 (plus tax) I purchased another automotive Garmin with lifetime maps that I use. It is much easier to setup and use, can be turned on/off without being stopped.

Unless you are purchasing City Navigator North America update disks and can make your own maps, it is getting tough. The sites that used to have the info for download are all being taken over by Garmin. If you can find a friend who does this, then you will be able to update to as recent as June 2017, but that is where the online stuff stops. Also, the maps are getting kind of large, but you should be alright, as you have an SD card in your Nav unit, and can probably accept a 4 gigabyte map or even larger when they get there. Even paying Garmin $95 for an updated card will not get you really up to date. The maps on the most recent cards are still probably at least two years old, but I see you already realize that. There is a lot of info on this forum about doing this, so a search is probably in order, for you. Lots to read if you search GPS.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
