Connected Services

Post by CX3fan » Fri Jul 03, 2020 10:27 am

Whilst checking the latest map update (December 19), I noticed the connected service is available at 92.83 EUR for 3 years (or 56.80 EUR for 1 year)

The forecast data usage seems low enough (The average monthly consumption of data needed for Connected Services (based on 6 hours per day 20 days per months) is estimated at 50 MB.) to not impact on my data allowance.

Has anyone here subscribed?

I am tempted, once the next map update is released. Mine is still running the original maps from new in 2016. The previous owner seemingly never used the nav - they didn't even set any radio favourites...

I subscribed for the 3 years as it seemed a very good deal €0.08 per day going by your figures. The 3 years are running out in September.
It never impacted on my mobile data (2Gb per month). Just remember to engage your wireless hotspot everytime you want to use it (which does impact on your phones battery).
Whilst the data is OK I never felt confident the traffic info was up to date. But it did give me alternative navigation routes based upon said info which on occasion & in hindsight got me out of some long delays.

That's in addition to the €183.50 for a 3 year map update subscription, where you only get upto 2, not very good, maps a year :shock:
Which is why I bought the Android Auto/Apple CarPlay kit parts from Mazda for £175 and did a self install & now use my connected phone for navigation with live traffic for no further cost. ;)
