Re: GPS navigation


That's a helluva lot of GPS units in the 'to be discontinued' list, and I totally agree with you - when is a Free Lifetime Map Update not for the lifetime of the unit?
Please let us know the outcome of your contact with Garmin Aus.
I believe their newest contact number is 1800 235 822

Re: GPS navigation


Yes that's the phone number I have in my contact list so I will certainly be discussing mine and obviously your concern as well. Perhaps there are many other members out there that also have a device which is listed in the list and I would like to be able to state that there are many members of our forum that will not be happy next July if the free map updates become unavailable for them as well.

cheers

Re: GPS navigation


Often when a company states "lifetime" they don't particularly mean the life of the unit (until it dies) but rather their expected usage life of the unit until they expect many people will be upgrading to a newer unit with more features.
Unfortunate and should be spelled out in plain english at the start.

Re: GPS navigation


Today I received an email reply to my online complaint about the cessation of free map updates from 1 July 2023 for my model Garmin GPS. I haven't rang them at this time.

Their response does not add anything to what was previous stated in their email and did not answer my specific questions. I may yet ring them.

Hi David,

Thank you for contacting Garmin Australasia regarding our recent email on the discontinuation of map updates in Australia. As advised in the email, map updates will be available until July 1st 2023. Please note that your automotive navigation device will continue to function with the maps currently on the device as of July 1, 2023. Further, Garmin Australasia Product Support Team will still be available to assist with any device issues you may experience.

Garmin apologises for any inconvenience this change may cause. If you have any further questions at all then please feel free to contact us on 1800 235 822 EST (Australia), 0800 427 652 (New Zealand) 8:30am-5pm (Mon-Fri).
