Default Gps update

I just received a free 2013 navigation map update in the mail today.It came from
a company called Stephen Gould Corporation.? Any one know who they are ? and or why they would of sent it to me? Yes FREE !
Should I Update with this or will It cause problems? I owned a Cadillac CTS before my Longhorn and installed a gps,dvd update in it and it bricked the system. Any thoughts?

Ask yourself this, where others pay $199 for an update and this is free, is it too good to be true?

I just did this install tonight. If you read the letter that came with it it directs you navteq's website to get a key. It took about an hour and a half, mine needed the radio software updated also. It was really straightforward and I haven't seen any issues.

I received one of those about 2 years ago

there was a catch, i had to pay for it

the dealership will tell you, not to upgrade before 30 months is up, a flyer was in the Customer Waiting Room that said the same thing
UNLESS the maps that came with the radio had a flaw or mistake & the new CD is a correction
