New 2021 CX-5 owner question...Navigation SD card included?

Quick question. Just bought a new 2021 Grand Touring Reserve AWD turbo. Was it supposed to come with the Navigation SD chip as part of the options? Or is it just "Nav Ready". Thanks.

NO. The Reserve doens't come with a chip. However; you can purchase one from ebay for less than $75 the last time I looked. You MUST get a chip for a 2021. Others will chime in on the one they got that works well. Ed

For the first model year of the GTR Mazda included the Nav SD card, then in 2020 they didn't & made it an option. Kind of a crappy way to cheap out on Mazda's part if you're paying extra for the Turbo. You need the SD card for the traffic sign recognition to work also.

I just got my '21 GTR and it did not have Nav. I whined about it to a co-worker who got a GTR a couple of months ago and he told me his came with it. We looked on the web site and saw Nav as a supplied item in the build so I called my dealer who immediately apologized for the error and got me the SD card asap.
Possible a Canadian thing but seems to be the case?
Oh, side note... we get the older screen and the older SD card is the proper one for it, I did chase after the "latest SD card" only to find out we get the smaller screens in our models. Makes sense because our roads are narrower? Lol
Still loving the CX, the thing is a beast when you want to play and cheap on gas when you don't.
