Cool ! i bought a 1390T almost 2 months ago and according to "MyGarmin" i have until Monday (Apr.26) to get my
one time free update, which i was going to do this weekend (has 2010.10 on the unit) ...so the question is ...at the time
i registered, the map available (but i didn't download yet) was 2010.40, so if i download now, will i get the 2011.10 map ?
...i guess the question becomes does Garmin keep both 2010.40 and 2011.10 copies on their servers or just the latest version ?

If you go to your Mygarmin.com account it should tell you what version you will be downloading. I suspect it's 2011.10 as that is the only version available when I login to my account.

Thanks Rick ! You're right, a few clicks in "MyGarmin" and said my available map update is 2011 :)
I haven't added any extra files to my unit, a 1390T, (actually i removed the sample jpgs) so i hope
i have enough space for the update.

The new maps overwrite the old ones so it's just the difference in the file size between 2010.10 and 2011.10 that you need to worry about. The new map file will be bigger than the old one but I doubt if you'll run into a space problem. If you do delete all the "VOICE" files you don't need as that will free up lots of space.

Same here -- about 37 minutes to download and about 20 to transfer to the 760. The latter surprised me.

I believe Mexico is now included in the units/mapsets which originally included Canada and is also likely dependent on available unit memory. I believe the addition of Mexico requires an additional 80-90MB. Those with 2GB nuvis including the 1xxx series (1690 included) will likely not have Mexico available after the 2011.10 map update since those units come with only about ~120MB of free memory.

To see if Mexico has been installed on your unit:

Where To? > Cities > Spell > "Mexico City" > Done. Now select "Mexico City, DF", then press the Map button. If you have map detail displaying, then it's on your unit (it is on my 765). If your unit supports 3D Buildings (7x5 series), they are also included and displayed as well when viewing the immediate Mexico City area.

SergZak... I just installed the 2011.10 map update on 2 Nuvi 1690's.
Prior to the map update on each, I accessed each GPS and deleted all the voices that I would not consider using and all help files other then the English one. Anyway, installed the 2011.10 map update on each and YES, I have Mexico and Canada! As you mentioned available space so Mexico can be included is something to consider before you do the map update.

Thanks, SergZak, for the easy way to verify Mexico. I selected the all of N. America option during install and it did load Mexico on my 760.

I assume 4GB nuvis will not have any options available to them as far as smaller region map installations go. There is room on 4GB nuvis to load the entire mapset which now includes the US, Canada and Mexico. I had no such options with my 765 when installing...it just loaded the whole thing.

Dan, was Canada installed as well?

Yes to Canada.

I don't think there's any way for me to go back and see that install menu again, but it had LOTS of partial map choices in it. You could even do regions of the US.

Don't know the exact file name (it's not on this PC) but do a search on your PC for something like CN*.exe

@stonemilk

Try to soft-reset the unit (slide & hold the power switch to the "on" position for about 10-15 seconds.

I haven't tried to do the install yet.
If you have a 1490T and there isn't enough available memory for the entire Map including Mexico, is there a prompt to select what portions of the map you want to install?

Is there an option to load the remaining portions onto your SD card, if you don't have enough internal memory?

Hi,
I have a 760. How do I delete the voice files I don't need? Thanks for your advice in advance.

The voices are in the x:\Garmin\Voice folder. See which voice you are using on the unit by the voice name (ex. Jill), find the corresponding voice file in the voice folder (the voice name will be contained in the file name) and move all the other voice files to another folder on your hard drive for archival purposes. If you delete all the voices by mistake, you can get them all back by using WebUpdater here:

In addition to SergZak's excellent advice, I'd urge you to make a complete backup of your nuvi first. Even though the voice files are easily replaced, some other files (your maps, among others) are not and having a good backup prevents disasters if by any chance an error (yours or its) happens.

I've only used the new version for one day, but it definitely has some new stuff coded into its routing algorithms.

Last night I took it on a route I travel almost every Thursday evening and the 760 has NEVER routed me the way it did last night. Its choice was excellent -- it's the way I often go with or without the GPS running -- but I am surprised it picked it right at the start instead of being "forced" into it via recalcs.

Yes, I know that each time you ask it to plan a route it's potentially a whole new ballgame, but over several years of travel on these same roads it has never picked this route.

After reading that a "corrected" 3D Buildings file had been released for the nuvi 7x5/zumo 66x to fix "maps locked" issues that some were having, I downloaded this fixed file and did a bit of testing. Note that I also have the original 3D Buildings file which was released with the 2011.10 map update download.

The original file has 3D Buildings displaying in Mexico City, while the newly released file does NOT...

I noticed that after installing the new map on my Nuvi 760 that my "Most Recent" listing was corrupted. Listings have graphic characters and no details of the POI.

I just cleared it and it seems happy again.

After about an hour on hold, I finally got through to Garmin. This info is really important as it applies to the one free map update feature.

I was told that I would NOT be entitled to obtain the mapupdate because my unit acquired a satellite lock in February. I had no idea but I only turned it on to ensure it was working, unlike the one I had received from Newegg previous. I told the poor english speaking CSR that I only turned on the unit to see if it worked, I did my due diligence to ensure there was no satellite lock. I even went into the bathroom where there is no windows. She said that made no difference. I have 60 days from the time I acquire a satellite lock. I told I didn't drive anywhere and I recited word for word out of the Garmin manual below:

You will qualify for the free map update only if (i) you register your nüvi or z#363;mo online at http://my.garmin.com within 60 days of first acquiring satellites while driving with your device, and (ii) a newer version of the map data was or becomes available for purchase from Garmin’s website at any time up to 60 days after first acquiring satellites while driving with your device.

She once again rejected this and stood her ground. At that time, I asked to speak to her supervisor. She reluctantly agreed. After several more minutes on hold, her supervsior told her that they would give me the update. I asked for a reference number, but she declined saying she didnt have one. I had a hard time trying to get her to reveal her name and her supervisor's name.

@ELEGEND:

Just to have as much info as possible for others who may have this problem, how did you determine that the February power-up did not result in sat lock? Did you look at the sat screen?

Thanks and sorry to hear you had such a hard time getting it straightened out.

Danham, I live in a concrete hi-rise. I went in the bathroom and shut the door (I know that's crazy). There was quite a bit of distance between any window (we have only 2). I turned on the unit there for the first time. I quickly went and turned on GPS simulation. I have done this many times and I even recorded the xml ifix data which was very old. At no time did the satellite bars show more than 1 red at any point in time.

Going with Garmin's original terms and condions for a free one time update, one has to have a satellite lock AND driven around. Presumably, there is data built-in to the device that records if you're driving around.

I just checked my Garmin profile and I am able to download the file. I am doing so now. :)

You turn on the Garmin GPS and it acquires satellites. Regardless of whether you are actively driving your upgrade grace period starts the moment the GPS acquires satellite(s). Again, you just have to access satellites and not have to walk/drive with the GPS.

As for Garmin's tech support people. The majority are very pleasant and eager/willing to assist. Never had one with an English speaking issue. Of course, like anyone you deal with in customer service if you are belligerent, short,etc. with them you are less apt to have a good experience with that person. Anyone that feels a particular tech support rep is difficult to understand or whatever just hang up and call back and you will have a new tech fielding your concerns. As for Garmin, in my encounters with their tech's, they most always eagerly work on your issue and are quick to say fix a map upgrade issue, etc.
Also, for those that don't know call Garmin tech support in the morning when they first open and you will have no less then say a minute or so wait time.

Don't believe that is totally accurate, I think you actually have to have sat. lock and be moving for the grace period to begin. Here is the definintion of when the "clock starts" :

"First use" is defined as the GPS being used for at least 30 seconds at 20 km/h, to ensure that demos in shops don't trigger it accidentally. I pointed out that high sensitivity chipsets can "jump around" in environments with poor GPS reception but they don't think that will be an issue. That data is stored in the memory of the GPS and will be retrieved when the GPS is registered on mygarmin"

Bingo! I knew I read this somewhere. That's very likely why the CSR had to give me the update. Normally, a supervisor will come on the line and tell the customer the "bad" news but not in this case.

As far as attitude goes, it works both ways billarf. Hanging up is not a good option because a note or flag may be placed on your profile that you hung up. Of course, one can always come back and make some excuse like the line just went dead. However, you still could be flagged which probably wont help in the future. And there's been many reports and comments on how bad Garmin's support has become over the years. It used to be stellar, but nothing lasts forever. Fortunately for you, your experiences haven't been "typical".

The 1300 is sold with various "regional" maps installed. In your case the region is probably lower 48 states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. That being the case you can only update the same "region" so there would be no way to also install Canada and/or Mexico without buying toughs regions.

My 765 upgraded fine, but mu 885T showed maps were up to date. I have Numaps Lifetime for both and have never experienced problems in with past maps.
Any ideas what could be wrong?

I suspect that currently your 885 is up to date as Garmin has pulled the 2011.10 map update for the 8xx series because of a problem with the update file. Last I heard they are saying May 6th for the repaired update to be available.

Your 1300 will only ever be able to install the map region that it came with. It maybe possible to run other regions from a legitimate full copy of CN North America from an SD card but it would have to be unlocked to your current device and never have been used on any other GPS.

Rick,

Any idea exactly what was wrong wiht the update for the 885t ? Garmin is still offering the 2011.10 for the 7x5 series. And The only difference should be the ASR files ( Speech Recognition ),

Two different explanations from Garmin:

Temporarily the 2011 map is not available for Nuvi 8xx series devices due to the new maps including Mexico. Our IT team is working on getting this fixed and they have a date of May 6th for this to be completed. Please log into your MyGarmin account on May 6th and check for updates then. Once it is available you will need to download the new file for the 8xx series and install that on your device.

and

We encountered a problem with the downloads for the 800 series of units and we are attempting to correct this as quickly as possible to make the updates available for download for them. Unfortunately at this point in time we had to remove the 800 series from eligibility as there was a software interaction that was not working properly.

[Trouble?] I haven't traveled around very much with 2011.10 yet, but I've already noticed something very puzzling with it: some POIs seem to have disappeared - at least in my area (Kelowna/Okanagan). And it's not obscure stuff: among the MIA are Purolator, Extra Foods, etc.

Anybody else notice missing POIs in your area?

When 2010.40 came out I noticed missing POI's in Ontario. Some POI were restored in 2011.10. There doesn't to be any rhyme or reason to why they go MIA. You could report them but by the time they get to them they may end up in version 2011.20 when it is released.

I was on the phone for 2 1/2 hours with Garmin's tech then software tech. They couldn't get my unit to update to 2011 maps. He finally got word from consulanting with higher ups there is a problem with them and Thur will have the fix. He said I should get an email saying I can update now. He said to try it Fri. Sat or Mon. if I don't get an email.
Kind of odd he didn't get this told to him. He said he wasn't aware of this problem until now. He talked to a supervisor twice before he was finally told tonight..

I havent noticed any missiong POIs (yet). It's too soon too tell. But, I have Topo Canada and I often use that for local POIs in addition to CN. I was surprised to see that Golden Ears Bridge is there but it's not on Navteq or Google Maps. The new update is only a meager 100+ MB more than the previous version.

On at least one site, while trying to explain why someone kept getting the 2010.30 update as the latest, there were some people implying that if you click through to find the version on the update pane you will be stuck with that version. I'm not sure it's true (probably not) but didn't want to risk it.


Just checked--all it tells me is

North America NT 2011

which I assume is 2011.10

Any problems Garmin is having are new ones. I upgraded the maps on my 1490T last week. I had no problems. I deleted voice files that I didn't need and even got the Mexico maps.

I just talked to Garmin again to confirm the problem. He talked to software techs and they will email me or call me when the problem is fixed. I asked what the problem was and he said he didn't know.
I bought the code from Amazon.com so I wonder if that played into it. Probably not. At MyGarmin there was a button to push to activate so Garmin must have got the code o.k.

Installed 2011.10.

I now have Mexico, the Cayman Islands, Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico (I don't think I had these before).

Someone at Garmin must have been in a rush to get this update out and forgot to cut a few of the maps off...

Did you download the code from Amazon or buy the card with the code on it? I personally bought my code on a card from Amazon and did not have a problem, but in reading customer comments on Amazon, a few people complained that Amazon had not activated the lifetime card before mailing it out and the code wasn't recognized as valid at Garmin. They needed to call Amazon to have the code activated. (I gather that this is a security measure for stores that sell these cards, so that in case they are stolen off the racks, they will be useless because they weren't activated at the cash register.)

Took a trip with these new maps (and my wife) to the NC Outer Banks. Decided to deviate from the route Garmin layed out and for the first time, instantly recalculated for the way I wanted to go, instead of trying to reroute me the way it wanted to go. On the return trip it calculated the trip using the same roads as I used on the way there.

Well funny you should mention routing. There are basically two ways when I am in Connecticut to get to the Manchester/Hartford area from my house. Either RT44 or I84. In the past it would want me to take Rt44, if I passed Rt44 to take I84, it would ask me to take the next left which would bring me back to Rt44. No more. If I pass taking RT44, it routes me now to I84.........Interesting.....

I bought the code instantly online. Garmin sent me an email last night saying it was o.k. to download. It worked fine. Maybe Amazon hadn't activated it or had trouble connecting with Garmin.

I took my Nuvi 755T on a road trip - Cincinnati to Silver Spring, MD (DC Area). Cincinnati has Junction views, but Columbus and DC area do not show up. Very surprising. I am disappointed at the slow development of the junctions available. My Hyundai GPS (Microsoft Sync like system) has it for all intersections, thought not always perfect or as nice as Garmin. Had the two running on the trip.

I agree about the Junction Views. In the DC area they are not plentiful. Was in California and saw more. Plan a trip from DC to NY and you won't get a lot on this busy corridor. TomTom, Navigon and Magellan have more of them. Garmin says, wait and we will be adding more. Why? Others using Navteq already have them.

Anyway, I am satisfied with Garmin overall. But if it weren't for the others being more creative, who knows where Garmin would still be at?

The time required to download, extract and transfer the map update to your Nuvi is dependent on the speed of your broadband connection, the speed of your computer and the type of Nuvi you have. The type of Nuvi is important because many models have the old USB 1.1 standard while others have the much faster USB 2.0. That can make a very big difference in the time to transfer the compiled map update file from the PC to the Nuvi.

I'm currently downloading the mapfile now. 2.54GB download for the Mac version apparently. Despite Garmin using Akamai for their servers, I'm only seeing a 2.77MB/sec download rate from them, quite slow in my book. I'm used to seeing 30+MB/sec rates out of this connection.

Can anyone confirm - when I updated my nuvi755T to 2010.40, when a traffic alert icon shows yellow (have not seen any red alerts yet), the entire on-screen map turns to a gray tint - the map is still visible but the colors of the roads, background, etc take on a gray tint (like all colors were removed?). When the traffic alert goes away (further down the road) the map returns to its normal color.

Garmin says "This is an intentional update that was made with the latest map update. If you encounter a traffic incident of medium or severe origin the background map automatically changes to gray.
There is not a specific purpose
for choosing the color gray other then it is something that will display
different then normal mapping screen and catch your attention.


Does 2011.10 do the same thing - traffic alerts cause the map to turn to gray?

I think what you're referring to as "grey" is actually a traffic map. Nuvi switches to the traffic map whenever there is a delay on the route. This is normal.

I vote for - the last one is all you'd need. Not much point in taking up between 1 and 2GB of hard disk space for each of these files that you'll never use again.

I keep the previous version available in RoadTrip's pull-down menu so I can do quick comparisons, but this is hardly mandatory.

I need to duck that question and leave it for a Windows person. On a Mac you just go to where they are stored, in ~user/Library/Application Support/Garmin/Maps, and drag them to the trash.

I don't know if doing the same thing in Windows will cause MapSource or registry issues, however.

No, not the only way. Complete uninstall is done via 'Add or Remove Programs' in the 'Control Panel'--depending on the map version, the process may uninstall MapSource too. If you wish to just free up HDD space and remove from MapSource's mapset listing, then just delete the specific mapset folder(s):

in WinXP -
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GARMIN\Maps
in Vista and Win7 -
C:\ProgramData\GARMIN\Maps\

I would be leery of just deleting folders. For one thing it leaves the Windows registry honked up. I have uninstalled several map versions, and have never lost MapSource. Maybe if you uninstall the only remaining map, it could affect MapSource. Don't know...

Just looking at MapSource in my (WinXP SP3) Add/Remove; the [Change/Remove] is one Radio Button while some other Programs show two [Change] or [Remove] buttons. A click on [Change/Remove] only started to uninstall the whole Program, where other Programs can be Modified or have portions uninstalled using [Change] button.

There were also three MapSource Programs listed below, Americas BlueChart, City Select North America v6 UpDate and City select North America v4.01 and one of those could be uninstalled, but no mention of CN NT North America 2010.40 or CN NT North America 2011.10 was seen.

So it looks like TI3000's folder removal recommendation may be the only way to free up space without removing MapSource, but I would first look in your 'Add or Remove Programs' to see if CN NT North America 20XX.X was offered.

BlueChart etc. are within MapSource's Program files and not in 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GARMIN\Maps' as TI3000 pointed out for the Nuvi Map Sets.

Since I knew that I would eventually want a map update and 'Lifetime' is longer when bought sooner, I ordered it and Amazon's 'Free Delivery' took exactly one week.

The Download and installation was simple and completely painless; the 2.17 GB download took 1:45 on my middle speed CenturyLink's DSL line through my intel WiFi and complete install to my MapSource and Nuvi 755 took :25 minutes.

The file sizes within the Nuvi increased by 1,216 KB for the gmzpprom.img (1/10th%) and by 18,392 for gmap3d.img (13%).

Since my Nüvi 755's coverage never included Mexico; I was not surprised to see that 2011.10 did not install Mexico and it was printed right on the NüMaps Lifetime Card that "Coverage of Mexico Not Included".

However, looking into MapSource; unlike v2010.40, v2011.10 now had nine Map Sets to completely cover Mexico along with one for the Cayman Islands and two for the Bahamas (New Providence {Nassau} and Grand Bahama {Freeport}) 12 Maps-92.4 MB which could be downloaded into the Nuvi 755.

So now my Nuvi 755 has in Map Info:

[~] CN North America NT 2011.10 3D

[~] CN North America NT 2011.10

(1) CAYMAN ISLANDS, GRAND BAHAMA, NEW PROVIDENCE, SAN| (rest are off the screen)

(2) US & Canada

I recently bought a Nuvi 855 from Amazon - for $150 how can one resist? It has installed City Navigator North America NT 2010.10, Deluxe JV, All Regions, Apr 09 but when I go to MyGarmin it says "No update available" Can't I get 2011.1 too?

Yes you can, and you've probably figured it out by now but just in case, the details on how to get the latest maps for free are discussed in the nuMaps guarantee topic http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?topic_id=116806

Did Garmin change the way that they update maps. I just tried to apply this update to my 765 and it downloaded some stub installer that checks the Nuvi and downloads and applies a firmware update before downloading and installing the maps. Instead of getting "rmu_cnnant2011_10.exe", I ended up getting "garminmapupdater_naeu_a.exe" which contains the stub installer. After clicking through and starting the map download this is what the stub installer looks like:

Anybody else notice this? I swear this is different from when I applied the same update to my MIL's 760 a couple of months ago. Is it different for the 765 or has Garmin changed the way the handle updates?

I just got a 255 as a gift. Already had a 650 for a couple years. I finally got brave and updated to 2011! WOW very easy and smooth. It only took 45minutes. I have comcast cable. I wonder if I now have Mexico. How do I check?

Now for my old 650. When I first got it I got a free map upgrade so I bought the $10 DVD. But I never installed it. It sounded too complicated. Will I be able to use this new update process to install it? Or do I still need to use the old way? It is Map Update 2009. How do I do it?

On that DVD, you should find Garmin's MapSource Program, you first install MapSource (and if you go to Garmin Website, you will find the latest free program update which you should install).

Now you can use MapSource to install 2009 update to your 650, after that is done, you should go back to Garmin and reinstall 2011.10 on your 255, this time selecting the option to also install 2011 on your PC (it installs and can be run inside MapSource) and it can now be accessed for handy Route Planning in advance and possible download to your Nuvi's (Some Nuvi's receive Routes from PC and others don't, I just know that my 755 does).

I think you might have two weeks from your download install to your 255 to do it again, you will not be able to run 2011.10 maps on your 650 as they are copywrite keyed to just one Nuvi.

It was in MapSource that I found the Mexico, Cayman Islands and Bahamas coverage and it came in 12 MapSets that MapSource installed on my Nuvi 755.
