CN EU 2017.30

 

CN EU 2017.30 was released by Garmin yesterday, but there was an issue initially downloading for those with the full EU map installed, which now breaches the FAT32 4Gb limit. To cope Garmin now split the map into two, CN EU North and CN EU South, but Express was only installing the North part. That issue is now resolved.

One part is placed by Express into the .system folder and the other into a folder named Map if there is sufficient room on the device. If not then the files are split on a sd card, between the Garmin and Map folder.

Hopefully by the time the NA map needs to be split Express will handle it correctly smile

It will be interesting to see how Garmin deals with this on the 2017 DriveLuxe, DriveAssist and DriveSmart devices where they push the map update directly to the device over WiFi. My bet is that they increased the internal storage so the map will fit without a SD card. Otherwise Garmin would need to make the Drive models smart enough to write to SD cards instead of read-only mode.

Is there a typo? My 3597 reports I already have the NA versions 2017.30.

No

No typo. This thread is about the Europe 2017.30 NTU version which tends to be released on a bit of a different schedule than the NA and Europe NT versions do.

Well ...

... it's roughly the same schedule but Garmin first released NA 2017.10 when EU got an extra 2016, so EU 2017.30 is the equivalent of NA 2017.40, or whatever Garmin number it this time!

Thanks sussamb

Interesting as I also wondered how Garmin would get around the FAT32 4Gb limit.

I have the latest version of Garmin Express on my Mac and a BMW Nav V gps. I can confirm that Garmin have NOT fixed this issue. Garmin Express only downloaded Europe North to my GPS device.

It did, however, download the full Europe Maps to my Basecamp.

Can you tel me how I go about getting Europe south onto my Nav V?

Many thanks for any help

Well ...

... it worked fine on mine, and I've seen numerous reports that others have also done so, and Garmin say it is resolved.

Perhaps there is an issue with your device. Does it have enough space for a full update? Did you get any messages/error messages?

Note particularly with macs not emptying the trash can cause issues.

Yes, Garmin have

Yes, Garmin have (apparently) amended Garmin Express. My BMW Navigator V and Garmin 3490 now both have Europe South and Europe North maps loaded and 'ticked'

GE automatically downloaded the whole of Europe 2017.30 onto my computer for use in Basecamp

MapUpdater?

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if MapUdater will still work to install the CN EU 2017.30 now that it is over 4 GB? If so, what is the procedure? Can you install the partial map to the device to get the full features like Junction view and ASR, then use MapInstall to install the other region?

Or is MapUpdater now no longer an option with the Europe map?

I just downloaded two GPSr using Mapupdater on one and using GE on the other. All went well.

Sorry, that should have said my device, as it's only my 2508 that uses the NTU map, MapUpdater works fine with my older 1490.

I suspect it's because lifetime maps was an add on to my 2508, which initially didn't have them. MapUpdater doesn't seem able to cope with that whereas Express does.

Hi.
Positioned in France, the voice command does not work for the search of place, address, city, intersection. I get the message "This function is not available for France in French", probably because of this separation of the map of Europe into two parts.
