Honda announced today that the first of two planned navigation updates for the Gold Wing will be available beginning October 4, with the second scheduled for January 2019.
Update 1 – October 4: Provides revisions so that route guidance and points of interest will continue after the ignition is turned off and then back on, and to correct a daylight savings date change.
Update 2 – January: Provides a significant increase in the maximum number of navigation waypoints.
The navigation systems on all 2018 and 2019 Gold Wing models share the same platform. The newly announced 2019 models will come standard with Update 1; owners of 2018 models can download Update 1 on or after October 4. Owners of both 2018 and 2019 models can download Update 2 beginning in January.
Starting October 4, details on where to download and how to install will be available at www.powersports.honda.com. At that time, customers can also sign up to be automatically notified when future updates are available.
Owners of 2017 or earlier Gold Wing models can purchase map upgrades at www.goldwing.garmin.com/goldwing/site.
