Did Garmin ever say what the .11 file changed (Why .10 was removed after we installed it)?

 

I'm still using the .10 maps on my 2 2689LMT's and 660 (SD Card).

I Know they came out with .11 maps... but there was various comments about it... so I left .10 installed....

Now that things have calmed down... Did Garmin Ever indicate why .11 was released, or offer a suggestion that those with .10 should upgrade, or ___________???

If Garmin has posted anything... I haven't found it... SO I ask the forum for their conclusions.

Thanks

Well ...

I saw one comment it had to do with Florida and some issues with timezones.

It didn't affect all models.

It didn't affect all models. I think there were some older models that it wasn't offered to.

2019.11 was offered on all 4 of my Garmin models, including the two older ones.

Apparently no changes for Zumo665

I've updated .10 to .11 on both my Zumo 665s and the maps were exactly the same size. I assume nothing has changed when the byte count exactly matches in the img file and jvc files.

I finally decided to contact Garmin on this issue....

Here is their response:
Hello Jan,

Due to a production error in the mapping on the 2019.10 maps, the 2019.11 version was released to fix any issues that may cause routing issues in some cases.

I would suggest updating to 2019.11 when you get a chance. This way you will have the latest maps with all the corrections.

Thank you for choosing Garmin,

So, it was a regular routing riot.

Bang. Zoom.

The map error issue finally resolved.

JanJ must know an insider at Garmin to be able to extract that much information from them. Now we know rolleyes

No, I went to website and

No, I went to website and email'd support!!!

I asked them why they removed .10 after I downloaded it... and then came out with .11..... With 3 units at .10 I was nosy as to why this all happened, and thought I'd ask them....

And that was their answer!!!!

I've not yet got around to updating to .11...
