Hello, thank you for your question.

I have checked with the manufacturer and this product will come with the latest version of the maps that is available.
Binatone do release SD or microSD cards with updated maps approximately once a year which you can purchase if you wish to do so.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can confirm that no subscription is required with the Binatone S500 UK and ROI 5in Sat Nav. However, to keep up to date with the latest maps, you would need to purchase these directly from Binatone.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I can advise there is not a function on the Binatone S500 UK and ROI 5in Sat Nav that will allow you change your vehicle type. I am sorry I cannot recommend a different specific sat nav for you please read the product descriptions in order to find out if our sat navs have this function.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
