Which Map Version do I have?

 

My 260 arrived yesterday and after backing everything up, I started the registration and upgrade process. Eventually the Garmin site allowed me to download the latest version of the maps, which I have done. I'm assuming that I was permitted the download only because my maps were not up to date. However I have been looking around during boot-up, in the various settings pages and in the "secret" pages mentioned on Gary Hayman's site, but I have not seen anything that clearly states (or even hints at) which version of the map is installed on my 260.

Pointing me in the right direction will be very much appreciated! Thanks!

Not the latest

The latest map set is 2009. You said you downloaded, have you installed?

Now I'm current

Installation of the 2009 version went well, if exceedingly slowly. I saw Garmin's comment that it might take as long as 2 hours to install and even with my relatively fast dual-core processor, it did take a very long time.

Make sure you backup

Make sure you backup your map and the software in the ROM before any upgrade, just in case. wink
