People with 2011s get screwed. Our navs can only be updated with a stupid interface tool to reflash the Hard Drive. No way around it that I have ever found. So you have to waste time going to the dealer for an upgrade. They literally used 10 year old technology in our nav units so the only way to update is to rewrite the entire hard drive.

There are no more updates going to be issued for pre 2014 CT200h other then map updates and the last one I had done (last year) ran me $300.00 and that was just map data...no other changes made nor available. And when you check the various years and update procedures the 2011-2013 are the only models that require the dealer to make changes. But it does not matter because there are no more changes available and none will be made in the future.
...and why could they have made the system of entering voice commands a bit more fluid instead of having to give each command then wait for the beep and the next..beep etc instead of being able to give all commands in one string? Can be so frustrating at times.

Forgot to state that there is an aftermarket box/interface unit that is added inline with the audio system that gives the system Apple Carplay along with the ability to add 4 additional cameras using the installed screen. The only glitch is that it runs about $450.00 and some disassembly of the dash (ok quite a bit) is required. Have been wanting to take the plunge but a new Tesla solar roof has put a dent in my available finances.

Thanks for the info NashvilleCT200. I updated my 2014 without any issues in ~15 minutes as mentioned. The link provided by TheMainTony made this process almost effortless.

Thank you both!!
Did it update the maps too? The dealership said I need a new disk. I have a 2014.

No, the maps are on a separate micro-sd card. And I'm not sure if you can get an update on a 2014. The card part number/version number on the 2014 is different than the 2015-17 cards. And it's over $200 for a map update card.

I'm new to the forum and found this conversation very interesting. I have a 2012 CT200h. In this discussion are you referring to updates to the navigation system and will this update work for me?

JohnDev, are you saying that you have a 2012 CT200h and you updated the Navigation system yourself?

I would like to update my 2012 navigation system, with the latest update available. Based on what I am reading there are "Not" any more updates after 2018 for my vehicle. Therefore if there is a way that I can update my system on my own then I want to do it with the latest update available.
