On the 2020 Canadian GX and GS models (not sure in the US), it states that these models are "Navigation-ready (requires navigation SD-card accessory)" which is good, however the amount they want for this SD card with maps on it is a staggering $569!!!! How on earth can they justify this kind of charge just for a $15-$20 SD card with software on it, it's unbelievable! Why would anybody pay this kind of charge, it's just ridiculous!

You can purchase a Garmin for about $100-150 with free lifetime maps. I currently have a 5" Garmin with North American and European maps on it, which I make good use on for long trips.

I was really getting into this new model till I came across this massive charge - what a rip-off and starting to put me off this vehicle! I wouldn't pay any more than $100 for this accessory, any more it's just not justified.

after my first post 9 months ago, and purchasing the vehicle in late July, I order an SD card for my model from Amazon Canada and got delivery yesterday afternoon. From what I've seen so far I am very impressed. I have just driven into my village and down the highway to test it. I like the fact that it shows the speed limit sign on my display but even more impressive is the fact it also shows the same sign to the upper left of my speedo and puts a red mark on the gauge at that speed and if you exceed it there is a red line that fills in as you exceed it as well as the sign on the display changing to red.

It's going to be a bit of learning curve to get use to all the features (downloaded the nav manual from Mazda Canada), but so far I feel the money was well spent. I have not tried the update via the Mazda Toolbox yet, but will give that a try once I get use to the features and its operation.
