Best guess

If they keep to the 4 month schedule mid Sept. Maybe Sept 21 since it's been all Thursday this year.

Map Update

You know, in the years I've had my Garmins, only one map update had anything new that I could distinguish. And that was when a freeway was extended several miles. The extension showed up the very next update after construction completion.

Meanwhile, many surface streets have not been updated. My own house remains inaccurately depicted (not that I need a GPS to find it!).

Your mileage may vary but if I had the option to pay or not pay for map updates, I think I would opt out knowing what I now know.

It seems random when it may show up or when they might be working on updating your area but with millions and millions of miles of roads, significant changes from quarter to quarter are likely unnoticeable. They definitely are worth it though because they do update and I've seen city data updated especially but I'd say they're more noticeable in a year or two timeframe, not in just a few months.

I need to update

I think i am two updates behind. Jill has not been used for about 2 years now.

@ Mary

Try & update as soon as possible as Garmin states:

"A product will be deemed to be out of service and its useful life to be ended if no updates have been downloaded for such product for a period of 24 months or more."

I'm going for...

...the first week in October. The update at this time last year was in October, so I'm sticking with it for the update.

Not sure I did the last one

Gotta catch up.

I just have fun getting new maps.

it would be nice to get it in the next few days ...

it's the dog's fault

Garmin nuvi 2555 - nuvi 350, 260 (spares) - my other toys: Mac Mini, MacBook Pro, MacOS Sierra (10.12.6) and my best friend, Mayhem - a 2009 Harley-Davidson Superglide - and his Garmin nuvi 2455. The dog's name is Ginger.

Unlikely

@renegade734 ... It is highly unlikely that you will see it in the next few days. Garmin has not even released CN Europe 2018.20 yet, so I would expect that to happen next. It will probably be at least several weeks after the Europe map release before we get CN NA 2018.30.

Well Vacations are finished,

Well Vacations are finished, and usually map upgrades occur After I'm home from vacation....

But I am awaiting one "FIX" that involves a 20+ Year Old GPS MAP Error on the main road in our subdivision...... (Posted here before: Cliff Notes: If you follow GPS, you will end up driving into a stream! [GPS Indicates road goes over bridge, THAT ISN'T THERE!! Bridge was dynamited about 1995])

There have been numerous occasions where cars and trucks got to the stream and stopped, and had to back up on one lane road to find an alternate entrance or exit...

Once this error is fixed, a pre-edited email/text message will be sent to all in the HomeOwner's Association to inform that a FIX has FINALLY been made--to the GPS Maps.... This message was created 2 years ago (When Garmin Email'd me that it would be addressed), and is just awaiting confirmation that it was finally addressed. (All other local changes were addressed in last Map Update, EXCEPT this most important Part....)

new to group and downloading

newbe here I have MS S&T 2013, would like to update its campgrounds and RV Parks. How is this done, and keep in mind I am 72 years old and not a computer person,

thanks

Streets & Trips.

Are you asking how to update Streets and Trips or how to import the POI Factory POI files to your current copy of Streets and Trips?

Unfortunately Microsoft discontinued Streets & Trips a couple of years ago, so updates to that product are no longer available.

As Alan mentions S&T was discontinued a few years ago but there still is a forum for users that remains active. You may have better luck getting an answer to your question by posting it their. You'll find the forum at:

Next Week?

Sometime before September would be great.

My guess

Looking at Release Date History For Garmin Maps for North America my guess is Oct 5. Thursday has been the day for release this year. But just because it seems logical doesn't mean it will happen that way.

JCA

My Guess

Tomorrow, the day that is always coming but never arrives.

Onward....

Next update this winter is February 31st!
