You should have the same setup as I do, so here is a copy of the Quick Start Guide for the Kenwood DNX571TR. On Page 11, there are instructions, and an illustration regarding updating the unit's software (do this before you do any map updates), and then the maps. Per the illustration, there is a microSD Card Slot behind a cover at the lower left corner of the unit as you view it in the dash.

Two things about the in-dash GPS in the 2016 Open Roads:
1) As positioned in the dash, they are very hard to see clearly when driving. The placement is way too far right in my opinion, and the screen isn't overly large to easily see the routing.
2) Unless things have changed, map updates from Garmin are $100+ per update.
I just decided to abandon the in-dash GPS and purchased a Garmin RV770 in 2018 for my Open Road. I can place it on the dash where I can see it, the screen is larger, and the updates are free (until Garmin determines it's obsolete). In later model years of the Open Road, they switched the position of the GPS and the Rear View Monitor, so that the GPS is much easier to see. But the map updates still cost you.

We also did exactly as Mike and Cindy and purchased a Garmin and placed it on the dash. We have a better GPS with free updates.
Thanks,

Just wondering, do you not have the DVD that Tiffin supplies that contains all of the Manufacturers' manuals for the various systems in your RV? If not, I'd give Tiffin a call to see if they can send you one. It will contain most, if not all the manuals for the systems installed in your RV.

IMHO I would by standalone Garmin, as others have said. I went thru the update process on our '14 Open Road with the TR571 - a big wast of $90. On our '14 coach, the Kenwood/Garmin maps were a year out of date. It took K/G another 12 months to update maps. Every K/G device that I have checked in Tiffins at RV show had maps that were at least 1 year out of date. Also be aware that Garmin's numbering system is designed to confuse/fool you about currency of maps. I just updated maps on my RV760. IIRC the maps set was 2302 - which I think indicates second update for 2023. By observation, these maps do not include road changes that are 2 years old. YMMV
