2012.1 Map update

 

Does anyone know when this update is coming? 2011.4 has been out for 24 hours now and is old news. This is the internet/information age where things happen more rapidly than ever. If Egypt and Tunisia can overthrow enitre governments in a few weeks, shouldn't we expect to get map updates at least that fast? wink

I say let's skip 2012.10 and go straight to 2012.20!

Time to renumber

I wish Garmin would number the next two updates as 2011.5 and 2011.6 so we can get back to the year matching the update. This isn't a new car model.

But 2012.10 sounds newer and more up to date than 2011.60

Garmin should make the numbering scheme easy to follow.
Updates for 2011 should be 2011.xx Then in 2012 they should be 2012.xx

The latest version is 2011.40 so who knows what 2013.13 is. And now you most likely have virus and malware because those type of sites are riddled with it.

Sounds like a good idea, however it probably won't happen. Same with new car models.

It very easy to follow, just subtract one year from whatever Garmin calls their map update and you know what year it really is. grin

numaps

I just got an email from Garmin [email@email.garmin.com]telling me that it was time to update my maps, but when I logged onto MyGarmin, there was no update to be had. Analyzing the email further, it seems that it was only an advertisement for nuMaps, not an announcement for their next update.

nuMaps

I may have gotten my previous post wrong:

My nuMaps page had nothing about an NT 2011.40 update:

But when I clicked on the 2011.30 DETAILS tab, I see this:

nüMaps Lifetime™ North America
2011.40 with a product key.

So I guess there really is an update available, just hard to find.

??

What happened to all the old links on the MyGarmin MyMaps? I now have three links to 2011.40. And no links to redownload 2011.30 and 2011.20. confused

Fix

Garmin would have to issue a fix to correct the wrong date in the Egypt release. They have NEVER ISSUED ANYTHING without having to fix it.

Hmmmm, lot of updated maps????

It seems like someone posts new Garmin maps every week now.

Must be for those who have to have the latest and greatest each time a new map comes out. (???)

I waited two years before updating mine.

Garmin marketing???

OK.....so where the heck am I?

Static Neighborhoods

Maybe some don't see the need to update because they live in older more static neighborhoods not subject to much change?
I wonder if they still wait for the truck that delivers blocks of ice to keep their refrigerators cold too? wink
Before anyone gets huffy, this thread was made as parody for those who always seem to ask when the next map update is coming out even when the latest one is less than two months old.

dates

For a simple format, just have the dot number as the month. 2011.2 = Feb 2011, 2011.10 = Oct 2011.

Having them set as "version numbers" can just cause problems when various downloads are around.

Based on the original post, it appears that the 2011.4 map came out in mid-Feb, and with quarterly releases that would put it sometime around mid-May or so. Guessing another month.

Map update

Garmin tech support told me a new map update should be available in late spring as they usually have 4 map updates per year.

Yes in the last update 2011.40 the Junction view file more than doubled in size from the prior release.
