Some rather interesting outcomes of software updates for our Sat Nav (GPS).
We had noticed changes in road conditions that were not reflected or shown in our Sat Nav so before a service I asked if there was a software update.
I was told the software update would cost me $390.
Hey mate, I want the software updated not a new GPS installed.
Apparently I wasn’t the only one staggered by the cost.
If you live down the Mornington Peninsular then you wont see the new Peninsular Link unless you update the software.
I asked if there was any course of action I could take to complain? Yes, to Holden Customer Care.
Did that and received a phone call from them.
To cut a longish story short, it was still going to cost $390 to have the software updated.
Apparently Holden has significant costs testing software updates (pfft) and need to pass on the costs to recoup theirs.
What a load of TISH
As much as I love my Cruze, this unreasonable cost means this will be my my last Holden car.
- I purchased the car because it was locally made to support the local economy
- I service the car at a Holden Dealership to support the local economy
No longer! If Holden cannot support me, then why should I support them
There is a considerable thread at Whirlpool on the GSP Software that starts off talking about it compared to a TomTom but then ends up a debate on updates, costs and responsibility..
I ordered a series 2 SV6 2 weeks ago and have to wait for another 3 weeks for it to arrive.
Does anyone have the series 2 with Sat Nav? How does it compare with TomTom Sat Nav for accuracy and speed?
Does the live traffic update really work as well as the Holden sales guy told me it would?
