2011.10 is out, but...

 

Good news?

Garmin's City Navigator NA NT is now available, but only proloaded on SD cards, not the map update download that most of us want.

Here's the link to the SD card:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=1456&pvID=73853#cove...

Even better, here's the link to the interactive 2011.10 map so you can check to see if revisions you're hoping to see have arrived!

http://www8.garmin.com/cgi-bin/mapgen/webmap.cgi?p=144900097...

With the SD card out, the download should follow shortly, and I half-expect DorkUsNimrod will be the first to tell us about it wink

They are aware of it and are working on a fix that they thought would happen very quickly.

Installed 2011.10 Map On My Nuvi 660 - No Problem

I just finished downloading and installing the 2011.10 map update on my 660. It updated without a single problem.

For the record, this was the amount of free space remaining on my 660 with each of the mapsets I've installed:

New, with 2008 maps - 540MB
After 2010.10 update - 428MB
After 2010.20 update - 394MB
After 2010.30 update - 379MB
After 2010.40 update - 365MB
After 2011.10 update - 270MB

I was able to install the update without having to delete any files.

1. Backed up all current files on the 660 to my PC (WinXP Pro SP3).

2. The 2.17GB download took 13 min. over my 25Mb internet connection.

3. Using the free 7-Zip program, I extracted the files in the rar file to an empty work folder which took 7 min.

4. Finally, I ran the Setup.exe file from the \Windows sub-folder where I extracted the contents of the rar file. It took 1 hr, 57 min. to complete the install (install

MapSource on the PC & upload the map file to the 660) due in most part to the slow USB 1.1 port of the 660.

5. (Optional) To free up some disk space on my PC (about 1.7GB), I went into Windows Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs and deleted the 2010.40 maps.

The 2011.10 map update installed version 6.15.11 of MapSource on my PC.

New Maps

There seems to be some problem with the Europe Maps.

They come up as corrupt / broken when installing.

Upon further investigation, the maps shown as Europe have some North American info in them.

So somthing is not right.

I tried downloading them 4 times now with the same results.

I had no probelm at all with the actual North American download.

Mexico included

If you haven't noticed it yet, Mexico map is unlocked and included with this newest version.

Looks like I missed out. I downloaded 2010.40 on 4/19. I suppose I will be buying the lifetime updates on ebay for less than $100 - 8% BCB to go with my newly purchased refurbished 1490t. I'll probably wait awhile to see how it goes.

No email

I have never got a email for the many times I have downloaded the maps.Have contacted Garmin several times about this.They say it may be a system problem and they re-enter info but still no luck getting notice.

Nope

2011.10 Mexico Not On 1490T

My 1490T had very little internal memory left, so I assume the unlock code assigned by Garmin did not include Mexico. The map detail is not there. The Update also bumped the firmware from 3.9 to 4.0. Not an issue for me because I don't foresee needing Mexico maps.

I believe all 1xxx series units have very limited free memory (~100MB or so), including the top-of-the-line 1690. Not a very wise decision to supply such limited free memory, especially for the 1690.

I always thought Mexico was part of North America, someone at Garmin must agree. At this point, I would assume that it shows up for those who have the NA version which also includes Canada. Those who have the US version that includes Puerto Rico and Hawaii may not have access to the detailed maps south of the US border.

I checked the downloaded update file, and it is indeed the full NA version. There was only 75MB free left on the 1490, and as Dorkus mentioned, probably the 1690 as well. Judging from Gary A's posting above with the image sizes, there would have been no room to include Mexico. Having to manually remove voice files to make room would have been too much for the average consumer, so Garmin avoided that option. Too bad Garmin chose to equip these units with only 2GB of FLASH.

Agreed. I wonder how many cents Garmin saved per unit by limiting the on-board memory to only 2GB...sure, you do have the option of loading the maps to an SD Card but even the much older nuvi 7x0/7x5/8x5 series came with 4GB.

This worked on my 660. When I zoomed the map in to the 200ft level, lots of built-in POIs showed up.

Yes, that was a pleasant surprise when I checked my 765T. My C550 has 2GB and I use an SD card for most things. It still beats my C330 with only 1GB.

Getting Mexico on 1490T

Has anyone deleted the unnecessary language files to free up internal memory before downloading 1011.10?
Will you then be able to get the Mexico map?

You can load missing maps with MapInstall or MapSource

You can load the missing maps (if they are missing) to an SD card with either MapInstall or MapSource. My c530 doesn't have enough memory to store all the US maps internally, so I chose Lower 49 +PR SW and then loaded Canada, Alaska, the remaining US states, and all of Mexico to my SD card. Works fine.
I only wish that Garmin would make it easier and allow you to choose the areas missing with the same area name as they use for the original install. Have to choose each small area in MapInstall to create the map for the SD card, and not sure exactly what areas were not included in my original install (you can check the map that shows up when you do the original install, but it is difficult to remember exactly what was shown and what was not). However, according to Garmin, there is no problem if an area is selected twice.

The 7x0 only has 2GB of storage, at least that's the size of my 760.

Thanks Craig

I check each update waiting for my street to get a name on the map. With this update the street shows up (as a line again) but still unnamed. My 760 only knows home as "turn on road." wink Maybe next update. question

I believe you're correct, Rick...will have to check later on but I think you're right. I never seemed to have memory issues for map updates though and still have all default voices loaded on the unit...likely the 1xxx series is using a lot more of the 2GB for firmware and other files.

As purchased, my Nuvi 1250 had about 150 MB of unused memory. After I removed all "unnecessary" voice, help, vehicle etc. files the available portion of internal memory reached almost 500 MB. This unit has 2 GB of internal memory and now, after I installed 2011.10 it still has 425 MB of free space.
