Given how easy it is to download and burn a DVD-R DL with a nav system update, it strikes me that going even easier with the USB and cellular cases has one big risk: the manufacturers putting security on it to help protect dealer revenue. Be careful what you wish for...

(Also, via cell, you'd really need to make it able to download deltas. Updating an entire 4+gb of maps at once would be very expensive.)
