Nav II Update

I have a Nav II on my '05 and was looking to do a data base update from the currently installed V5. Got an email from Garmin earlier this year advising the availability of NT V8 ( and soon V9) but when I went shopping yesterday I was surprised to find that there is nothing past v5 out there for the Nav II (2610).

Not normally a problem since major roads haven't changed in a while but my area of Canada is poorly covered in v5.

Guess I am looking for any ideas you might have to help me solve this issue. I have a 2820 which is current but doesn't support the extra functions on the BMW cradle. It looks like my choices are to use the Nav II and not worry about data or swap in the 2820 and give up the functionality. Not life-threatening either way but a little annoying nonetheless.
