The map updates are released usually once or twice a year, depending on the region, and this is the main reason why, for instance, a brand new highway which is already viewable on the web ( or google.maps) could be not included in your CoPilot.

Updating a map for a stand alone GPS navigator is not just about drawing a new Road A on top of the existing ones, but it entails multiple tests to make sure that the Road A is taken into consideration when CoPilot calculates any route which may possibly pass through it.

This process takes time and many aspects must be considered when it's time to release a new map update available for download.
