The system can be set to automatically check if new updates are available, whereupon update files can be downloaded and installed directly in the car, provided that the car has a working Internet connection. You can also download map updates manually.

If you have missed or deselected the installation of one or more updates the update files may be too large to be downloaded directly to the car. If this is the case, there is the option to download the files to a USB device for installation in the car, see Map download for Sensus Navigation for more information.
