By now we know that the latest update for the maps is 2015_Q3, and slowly everyone is getting them done. What I haven't seen is how to get an update to the iGO Primo software. Does HERE (the map supplier) also supply the iGO software updates? As I’ve seen on some of the other threads, some 2016 vehicles have Apr 2, 2015 (ver which I have, and others have Nov 9, 2015 (ver and Jan 26, 2016 (ver I went to the iGO website, and it sends me to the, which asks me to login and them I'm back to the same Subaru-branded site that I downloaded the map update from.

The firmware would be specific to the head unit installed and would be supplied to Subaru by the respective unit manufacturer. I have found, with other vehicles, that in order to get firmware updates you have to have a problem that that specific update addresses. Dealers have to account for and justify time spent on cars, they just can't do something 'because'. However, some are more accommodating than others.
I contacted HERE about the iGO software and the three versions I had seen so far and the MAPVER.TXT that didn't update. I asked if they were supposed to update it on the same SD card the maps were successfully updated on and here is the answer - seems there is a problem and it should have updated the iGO software and text file:
