Default Nav Updates

Today I received this wonderful teaser in the mail from Navteq of updates to the Navigation system. I was excited as the maps could already use some updating. I read the fine print and they wanted $199 for me to get the access codes to the map update. Shouldn't we get free updates for the first 3 years of owning our trucks?

$200 is just insane!

I think the updates should be free for life

I got this in the mail yesterday, too (after my earlier first)

I go in for service on Tuesday; oil change, tire rotation, washer module, a few other RRT's and the power tailgate lock kit.
I will be sure to ask what is up with this.
Geez, you pay 40K for a truck, you should get the updates FREE!
Maybe I can talk the service mngr into giving me access codes.

They don't provide updated disks as part of the warranty or for free for any other reason unless the disk has failed.
