City Navigator 2013.40 North America is Available.
Downloading now with Garmin Express, did not see any "Options" before downloading other than just the Download button.
I'm using Garmin's MapUpdater software to install 2013.40 as my Garmin Express software doesn't report it as being available.
... should be mine in about an hour. I'm using Garmin Lifetime Map Updater, seeing as Garmin Express won't work on my computer.
it's the dog's fault
A couple of weeks before I update to see if anyone has a problem with the download.
@williston: Were you able to do an install to computer with GE?
I used GE with my 3490 and Mapsource did not update to 2013.4.
It was not offered to me as an option.
NOTE to others: Someone right next to me was installing at the same time using GE. There were poking around and going to different screens while the downloading and prep were going on and things seemed to hang. They had to close the window and re-start. It picked up where it left off on the map download (48%).
My advice is to leave it alone once it has started until completion.
I am doing the update using GE with 2013.40 on my new Garmin and I get the message "Insuffient space" and I have to install the map on my SD card.
This seems a bit odd for the very first map update?? I would think GE would remove the old map to create the required space. I just happened to have an old 8 GB SD card around so I am installing to the SD card at this point.
Seems odd to be out of space so quickly. I also deleted all languages except english but still got "insuffient space" message
It took 1 hr 20 minutes using GE. Didn't offer me the choice but put the maps on my SD card where the old maps were !
Happy Camper !
Now to wait out where the large JCV file is so we can download it !
I used myGarmin and it downloaded Garmin Express. I installed it and it wanted to start with every windows start and install a core function. It just wants to do too much stuff. Don't see a pause download function which I need. I also just read a post that said a copy of the map is not available to Mapsource.
I uninstalled Garmin Express and am running Garmin Map Updater now. I've selected the option to save a map copy on the computer for mapsource.
I just want to have a bit more control of the whole process than Garmin Express gives.
Downloading using Garmin Lifetime Updater. I know that there are many complains about the software but it worked flawlessly for me in past.
I used the same old GarminMapUpdater_v3.1.19.exe installer that I used for the prior map update. Just connected the 3790 to the computer double clicked the old saved installer from last year and away it went with no further updates needed.
Took about 1 1/2 hours from start to completed install in both the 3790LMT and my computer.
I downloaded it to my 4 units on 4 different computers and it went pretty fast but, like most others, it didn't give me the option to also install on my computer, except ONE, and that one instlled on my computer (mapsource) as well as my unit. Odd. Maybe someone will figure out what we have to do to install on to computer, also. Most likely, we will have to reinstall, but to computer only.
I just finished install with Garmin Map Updater to my Nuvi 2495LMT with a copy on the pc for Mapsource. It appears some old track history was deleted from the GPX/ARCHIVE folder. Quickest update I've done.
If you want a map copy installed to your computer, use the map updater.
showing for 2013.4 update for me
Got 4 unit updating now
I updated my 2460 on my Mac using Garmin Express. It took over an hour. I did not see any option to save the map to my computer.
Thank you for letting us know it was available.
I'm going to try to update both of my units at the same time through Garmin Express. I'm hoping it won't want to download everything twice. Not holding my breath
It downloaded the full coverage map in a half hour. It then proceeded to tell me that I didn't have enough room and it did NOT allow me to select the SD card, it was forcing me to select a smaller region. It did during this time have a window that allowed me to select "Device and PC".
So I deleted the map off the zumo, hit the back button to try again. After hitting the back button I could no longer continue again. Just had to delete the whole mess.
I started backup copy of "GarminMapUpdater v3.1.19" and am downloading the maps to device and PC again.
I usually have good luck with Garmin's new software releases, not today. Oh well!
deleted double post!
You may want to clear your browser cache as the update is available via Garmin Express, Garmin MapUpdater and the myMaps section of my myGarmin.com account (although under myDashboard it shows my maps are up to date )
Haven't looked at Garmin Lifetime Updater so can't comment on whether the update appears there or not.
Yup ... same here. GE advised of the update, estimated 28 min to completion and then failed with an error. Insufficient space.
Guess I'll get out tomorrow to pick up an 8GB SD card .....sigh!!!!
Took about 1.75 hrs.
Garmin 250 before update internal storage 1.8 GB, 10 MB free, SD card 14.8 GB, 14.8 GB free, after internal
1.79 GB free, 0.06 GB used, SD card 12.9 GB free, 1.9 GB used( includes POI, 2 pictures that was on before update). So I don't believe the Garmin internal storage would have been able to hold the new map.
I just finished updating my 755T. I used MapUpdater 3.2.2 and updated directly to SD card using the cloning method. Here are the file sizes for full NA and those for 2013.3. Note that the map grew up by about 49 MB, but the JCV file shrunk slightly. I was glad to see that I still got the large JCV.
Updated the 3790 just fine, but GE throws an error on the 775, saying it doesn't know where to put the maps. SD is not in the device.
I have to contact support. Ugh.
I'm downloading now. I had been using Lifetime Updater, and I hope Express helps me to update multiple GPS units a little faster.
I had the SD in the Garmin and GE picked it up as the recommended install.
Slow as Molasses.
Over 2 hours and still not even half way. Speeds bounce from 300 KB/s to 2.1 MB/s.
What happens if the SD is in the device?
I had Garmin install it on the SD memory card....
IT WORKED FLAWLESSLY!!!!
Downloaded and loading on the Montana right now, 60CSx next
The same. Lots of room, though. 3.5 gigs.
Using the Map Updater, and getting it done.
On my 755T, I used the old MapUpdater program, so for my 855 nuvi, I decided to install Garmin Express. Because of the speech recognition files, I know that the 855 does not have room for the full NA map and the large JCV file. So for the past several map updates, I have used the cloning method to install the maps directly to SD card.
Since this was my first experience with Garmin Express, I was not sure what to expect or whether the cloning method would even work with Express. But I will have to say I am pleasantly surprised. Garmin Express recognized my cloned SD card as my 855. The map download and install worked without a hitch. Now all I need to do is rename the map files, copy the large JCV file over from my 755T, and move the new ASR files back over to the 855 internal storage.
I just wish that Garmin would give us the large JCV file when there is room for it on the installation device.
Thanks for posting
No werky. 2 devices at once. Updated the 3590 but it hung with the 3790. When i first opened express it told me updates for both were available. Both units were connected. Clicked the update for both. After the first update on the 3590 it gave me an error "Mapset not complete" for the 3790. Tried to reinstall using back button. Sat there and sat there checking the 3790 out. Finally closed Express and re opened it. What I was afraid of, was that it would d/l the mapset again, but it didn't. Couple of minutes later we were done.
Would NOT install on my 3490 since GE said insufficient space. I plan to uninstall GE and go back to the old method.
something to do this weekend!
My maps usually download in 30-45 minutes, this time it's 5 to 7 hours, reboot PC and cable modem and restarted the download, no change, Garmin server related issue.
Download is slow tonight, everyone else got the message at the same time
Thank You Comcast Cable. Less than 30 minutes to download.
Has anybody figured out how to install the new maps in BaseCamp on the computer. I've looked all over in Garmin Express and can't find that option.
updated my 755t, 1450, 3490, 3790 and 3590 without any problems using GE. On the 1450 just installed the lower 49
I think base camp will load the maps from your unit.
Was tring to use web to updae but would not let me.
After d/ling the Express My system ran very slow while express is runnig..
At this time I am downloading the maps using Express, and wnen I did , it did not give me any choices as to what area, if I wanted to d/l to both device and machine.. AND The software is dr4aging my system down so much..
I LOL when Expressed gave me a message that i could continue to do other tasks but to keep express up. .. however.. it does say that I have 31 min to go and the d/l speed is 1.3.. But if you keep watching it, it goes up and down a lot.
Now it says 35 min and 1.1 mbs .. lol
This app is killing my processer...
I uninstalled GE and re-install life updater and I was able to install on computer and NUVI
I installed starting from my.garmin, and was a bit surprised to find that instead of downloading a stub GarminMapUpdater_Vn.n.nn I was downloading Garmin Express. This was my first experience, and it was at best mixed.
1. By its own report it failed a couple of times, and also had prolonged periods at the very beginning of doing nothing. I believe it and my security software do not like one another--and I had to kludge a bit to run it at all.
2. I did not spot any offer combine the download to my 3790 with placing data where my BaseCamp and MapSource could use it--and sure enough they don't have it now, though my 3790 does.
3. I did not spot an offer to allow me to specify where the raw data download should go. It put it on my C drive, which is an SSD with little spare space. So now I have over 5 Gigabytes under c:\ProgramData\Garmin\Core Update Service\MAP-NA-2013-40
If I learn a way to use this copy to populate BaseCamp, and update my second 3790, that will help, but I still don't condone it burning up precious space on my boot SSD without showing me an option I could find.
Other than that, it actually went quite well. For about the first half of the download, the rate was rock stable at 2.1 Mbyte/sec, which was probably throttled by Comcast. It then got more erratic, but the average did not go down much. But I was probably earlier than I have usually been, and this may have nothing to do with Garmin Express.
I still have old copies of GarminMapUpdater on my PC. I always have assumed they only would provide the map version current when they were downloaded. Could I in fact run an old one, and get this new map with the offer to install where BaseCamp/Mapsource can see it?
Anyone know a way to use the downloaded temporary data to load a second 3790 or BaseCamp without going back to the beginning?
Garmin Express vs. Lifetime updater
Garmin Express(GE) would not overwrite old maps so it gave me the "out of disk space" error.
I uninstalled GE and re-installed Lifetime updater and voila, I was able to install basecamp on my computer and had no issues installing the new maps on my NUVI's.
I guess i won't be using GE for map updates in the future.
I first tried the update and it took asked me to install Garmin Express, so I did. Next, no room on my device, so choose a region. This is a first. Then I tried another of my devices and it says I have already downloaded. I uninstalled Express and tried the Old method of using the updater. Says I have the latest version of Communicator, but always takes me back to installing Express again. Around and around I go. So, how do I get back to the original map updater, or something that first erases the old map, then installs the new? I don't mind change, but sometimes the old tried and true works just as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jon
Installed to my 765T using GE. Went to Basecamp to load to there via GPS. Loaded to Basecamp. Got notice "Limitation: Printing not allowed with 2013.40." went to Mapsource and 2013.40 is not listed. using Mapinstall to do a computer only update. Will see if printing is permitted then.
