No reason to update unless you have a specific reason. There is an update for mine but I didn't do it as everything works perfect.

Navi update takes between two and four hours, so it can get quite pricey to have it done, without a real benefit.

Updating should only be done with a specific problem that needs to be addressed, or if you are retrofitting combox for Bluetooth streaming and need to update the software to be compliant.

I agree with Mike, I wouldn't update software unless it's absolutely neccessary. If your navi works now, then it works. Move on.
