question for Mazda navigation sd card

Anyone bought mazda this year, does the dealer charge extra money for the navigation sd card? Saw in the US forum, some people buy it from ebay and much cheaper.
The dealer didn't mention that to me.

thanks

Actually called the dealer, she said with GT it comes with the sd card, I can't get credit if I don't want it.
Is that true? Anyone knows?

@Jeff-TheBiz should know, he works at 'Mazda of Toronto' and answers Mazda related questions in the 'Mazda questions and answers' thread

I bought the 2017 CX-9 a month ago. The dealer was charging me over $400.00 for a navigation sd card (what a ripoff!)
And I knew I could get it way much cheaper from Amazon or ebay as one of my friends already bought.
He said it works totally fine without any issue, so I bought it from ebay when there was a $15 off coupon yesterday Smiling Face With Open Mouth
Total came to $98.00 CAD all-in.

Here is the one I ordered:

The dealer didn't mention that, your car not come with the sd card originally? I just called they said the GT come with it?

I bought the GS-L model, not the GT which is pretty much all equipped. The SD Card is optional for my model.

Navigation is not standard on the GT model (at least for the Mazda 3) unless you go for the Premium Package. You can buy it as an add-on accessory for 4-500 bucks but sometimes Mazda has promos and you can get the SD card for free.

Only with luxury package

Previous year models of the GT came with it but then they lowered the price and removed items previously standard on GT (e.g. Bose stereo, active display, advanced keyless entry) and put it in the luxury package instead

the 17 cx5-gt, I checked mazda.ca the nav option is not in the accessories, so I guess it's in it already.

Keep your dealer supplied receipt!

I had to buy buy TWO of these SD cards, the first one wasn't being recognized by the car after 3 months and Mazda wiped their hands because I had no receipt.. Got it with the car new.

Bought a second one for nearly $400.. It's been good since.

This was nearly two years ago, Navteq couldn't figure out what was going on, Mazda Canada couldn't figure it out, nor could 3 different dealers. So guess who paid in the end..

I'm looking at the cx-9 GSL (likely 2017). Can I ask what you guys recently paid for yours?
