Re: GPS navigation


OK guys, anyone with a Garmin GPS, your latest map updates (version 2017.10...yes 2017) are now available online from Garmin Express.
Only takes around 10 mins to perform the update....and they're FREE, if your unit came with Lifetime Map Updates.
Have fun. emoticon

Have fun.

Re: GPS navigation


G'day John,

If your Garmin Express tells you that you're up-to-date, with version 2017.20, it simply means that you have what Garmin consider an 'old unit'.
The 'old units' used a different map information supplier, which was Sensis Mapping.
'Modern units' use a new information supplier, Here Maps, and these guys regularly update, hence our latest maps being version 2018.20

The unfortunate part here is that if you have an 'old unit' you have old map data, and I've just spoken to Garmin Australia, who tell me that they don't know when the next update will be - if at all - for 'old units'. :-(

So I guess that their 'Free Lifetime Map Updates' guarantee isn't for your lifetime, but for the life of their suppliers contract.

Re:


It is funny I regularly get map updates for the Nuvi 765 and Zumo 550. The last update I got was a couple of months ago.

Cheers

Re: GPS navigation


Sorry John,

I didn't ask Garmin to clarify precisely which units they classify as 'old' and which are 'new'.

All that I am aware of is that my nuvi 2589 is called 'new' (read; Here Maps) hence the recently available update to 2018.20, and my nuvi 255w is considered 'old' (read; Sensis) hence still stuck on Australia and New Zealand 2017.20 maps.

Re: GPS navigation


Garmin map update, version 2018.10, for the older units (with Sensis mapping) is now available.

If you have a newer unit (using Here Maps) you probably already have version 2018.20, which was released earlier this year.
