Nav unit upgrade

I have a 2012 GL550 and i am VERY disappointed with the Command/Nav unit - i'm looking to replace with an after-market unit.

-Anyone have any experience with this?
-Who makes units that fit like the OEM but are actually user friendly with decent features and good navigation function?

What is your disappointment?
I am using laptop-based navigation systems, that cost $29 and even like them way better - the data is always like 7-8 years behind. Lot of freeways build in 2006 are not included on 2011 database. The situation can look slightly better, or slightly worse between GPS manufacturers, but the main problem will still exist.
Guess who is making road mapping upgrades in US?

Try checking the Audio & Telematics forum in the Technical section. If you think yours is bad try using one like I have in my 2001.
