I will buy immediately as soon, as the navigation database is updateable for an acceptable pricing condition.

Because it sits atop the Garmin trainer, then the navdata is that of the real world device. Therefore, the cost of that database will always be the same as for the real world device. It’s a limitation of getting the realism level that comes from using the trainer.
