Garmin map update email ... better late than never

 

Hmmm.. Just got an email from Garmin, saying "It's time to update your maps" ... announcing the quarterly update is available.

Guess that's a step in the right direction ... but it's almost a week after we all started downloading the update ... when we learned of 2011.4 here on POI Factory.

Wonder why Garmin delayed the emails? Maybe letting us early downloaders act as beta testers?

At any rate, I'm glad Garmin is sending out emails to registered lifetime updaters ... even if it's days after we all started getting the update.

Delay

I'd guess they like to delay a bit because they KNOW a bunch of folks will be downloading immediately and they like to stagger it a bit so they don't have such a huge hit on their servers. Makes sense from an admin standpoint.
