I think we are at cross purposes saying the same thing.the companies that create the map data are the ones that have access to the satellite to create the map data and gm does not have access to that type of functionality of the satellite.
these days mapping can be done entirely remotely without needing to put boots on the ground and this is the type of thing i was referencing when i said gm does not have access to billion dollar satellites.
My point was GM (or any other vehicle manufacturer) do not need access to billion dollar satellites for map data because they can get the data from a mapping company. I think you're saying the same thing.
However I was given this lack of access to satellites and not being unable to download the database from these satellites as the reason Holden weren't able to provide updates.
