Taken from Peugeot's site, but have seen the same on Citroen's web page today after it went mad and was unavailable for a while.
It seems that the facelifted models from about mid 2023 are affected. So Navigation now only seems available if you fork out a subscription after the 6 month trial.For all new vehicles, equipped with a telematics box, ordered from July 1, 2023, the Connect ONE pack is included in the price of the vehicle. The Connect PLUS pack requires a specific subscription and is available at no additional cost for a trial period of 6 months from the start date of the guarantee. After this trial period, the Connect PLUS pack will be available against payment
Please note e-solutions not currently available in the UK . Remote control available on selected models only
I am supposed to have free map updates for life, but have to renew the 'Live Connected Services' contract after it expires in December. I likely won't be renewing that to be honest as we are so rural it really isn't worth it with the limited travel we do.

I think this is down to Tom Tom getting greedy, who supply the maps and data for many manufacturers. If they kept the costs down to a reasonable level, I'm sure people would be more inclined to subscribe, but this is only going to anger people and they will be losing money when people decide to say no.
Presently we have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to fall back on and Apple Maps in IOS 17.* is way better than it ever was, and even better has offline mode. I just downloaded A square chunk of Wales onto mu iPhone which only took 2.6 Gb, so I now have all of Wales available off line so no data use when in the car. It also allows you to pinpoint accidents and Police radar on the CarPlay screen apparently, but I haven't tested this out yet. Waze and Google maps are also available with good and bad points and are all CarPlay compatible.
The bad news is that in the US, I believe GM over there is going to be dumping Apple AND Android Auto for their new 2024 EV range going with Google for their in car shenanigans, so I suspect that's going to blow another Chief Execs Career over that along with the poor EV strategy
