The map. It gives you a newer map of cities. Highways likely don't change much but cities do.

Chech with Ford first because it's my understanding that they don't update every year. You want to get the newest one possible.

If you're talking about a map update, then it's highly unlikely to be worth the money you'll pay for it. Roads don't change much on a yearly basis for navigation purposes. Sure, you'll be missing roads in that new subdivision on the outskirts of Sometown, NE, but do you really care?

The term "chip" is just a macguffin. It doesn't really have a meaning when talking about updates or improvements to vehicles. (That is, unless you're talking about the actual computer components, which nobody on this forum will be.)
