In-built sat-nav system - Toyota upgrades

In March last year I bought a new Toyota Avensis T4 (diesel 2.2) which has a great specification. One of the attractions for me was a top-class in-built SatNav system.

Toyota are only too pleased to use these systems as a selling point for their range of vehicles, but there is never a word about the exorbitant after-sales charges in keeping the systems up to date. After finding out the hard way that my own system required updating, I made enquiries as to what the procedure was for obtaining such updates.

I am informed from Toyota HQ that the cost will be in excess of £154. Do you know if this is a fairly standard charge for such a service, as it far exceeds the charges involved in keeping my 'portable' devices up to date?

That is the cheap side of standard for manufacturer systems. If you Google satnavupdates you may find specialists, but that will be at your own risk.
