"Is it worth it"? That my friend is a strictly personal decision. If you like to have the navigation and use it, then sure. But a set of discs is about $130 and will be outdated before you get then home, but will be very close. Real time updates are even more expensive. it's all about how badly you want it. I have a Verizon phone that real time updates are included in the plan I pay, maybe you can get something like that. You ask about advantages...when they build a new road or shopping center and you need to find it, an update is a real advantage.

I think he means to remap the ECU for the diesel engine. I don't know if it's worth it but I know David is off on a navigation system tangent.

Ok. "remapped' led me to that. I stand corrected. "remapped' in the diesel is indeed apples and oranges

that's a tough decision, but what do you have now that brings up the question to go for something like this? My only thought is that diesel emissions could be a long term question, I've heard stories that the emissions are tough to fix if youre thinking of having a car like this long term such as 10 years plus. But diesel is highly unrecommended for cold weather, not sure where you're located. so i'm not saying its a bad idea but what makes you want to jump to a diesel Lancer?

hi there I live in the uk the cold isn't a problem here just wanted to know what sort of performance I would get having it remaped mpg one reason for getting a diesel is the fuel economy as fuel here is taxed heavily our gallon is a little bigger than the us in the uk a gallon is £6.18 in dollars its $9.26 so hence the diesel on a run 48mpg urban 37mpg so all I want to know is is it worth getting ecu remapped for more performance whilst still getting good mpg cheers for your contact grimlock
