    There is a separate maps update to the system update. Don't know what either adds sorry. Mine was updated when I bought it, and I use Android Auto anyway. But to be fair maps is spot on when iv used it.

    It will just update the maps. It won't give you android auto or apple car play.

    I have just bought an Atra Elite[17 reg], which is fitted with a Nvi900-intellilink. I can tell you that i think its the most useless satellite navigation i have seen.

    It takes routes that add miles to your journey such that it is in my opinion unuseable. In my Insignia, just got rid of because of the crazy restrictions being applied to diesels, i had a Chinese aftermarket GPS system that was streets ahead of intellilink, with one of the best navigation systems i have used. The nav programme was Igo Primo with every option you may require.

    Sorry if i sound a little sour towards my current setup but i find it really useless. I have currently on order the 2019 updates for it. As previously said they are on a USB stick programmed with your cars VIN. The total cost, with postage from Holland, including VAT is £103. This also upsets me because my previous sat. nav. was regularly updated at no cost.

    If when updated there is a marked improvement in the system i will let you know.

    For those that have the Navi900 do you experience the same frustration?

    No, standard on board nav works OK, but use AA Google maps or waze, both excellent and on a par with anything else out there.

    The update is only for NAVI 900 Intellilink.

    The update i got is version 2019 and is compatible with Opel/Vauxhall Astra K MY 2016 to MY 2018
    Insignia MY 2016 to 2018
    Mokka X MY2017 to 2018

    When ordering they need your VIN number, presumably to supply the correct update. But also, the VIN number is embedded into the update, so you can only download it into the car with a matching VIN code.

    The cost is £93 + VAT = delivery, a total of £103.

    It's not only PSA that are squeezing Vauxhall owners it seems that Vauxhall themself are squeezing us.

    I have the link 900 in MY13 Insignia, needs updating. Went along the new underpass at Tollgate Island near Coventry Airport, soon after it was finished, it had a duck fit.
    I tend not to use any sat nav when I have my tin tent in tow, particularly as I near a site, use my AA map and Google earth to get a sight of the roads around the site. Sat nav can send you god knows where, not good.
