Need to update the maps on my 2017 Wing. Is there an easy "to do" doc?

To me, the easiest was to get the 2019 update from Garmin. The first version had a date issue that has since been resolved.

Still looking for a method to update.

In the trunk is the XM radio. It has an SD card in it labeled "Honda trip planner". That would suggest that is the method to update the maps.

The other unit in the bottom of the trunk seems responsible for other things.

I don't see an actual Garmin. What am I missing?

The Garmin map card is in a little hidden door just below the trip planner card.

Why don't you use Open Street Map instead of paying Garmin again and again for their stuff? Open Street Map is free and (nearly) daily updated.
