how's it working for everyone?

How is the new software working?

Meh

I'm getting to the point where I don't care. My 3790 chokes, and freezes plotting a simple route between British Columbia, and Wisconsin.

Google maps, or HERE plots it in seconds, and can add waypoints along the way. With traffic, and speed limits. Downloaded maps mean no data used.

hoping for some improvements. I have not been thrilled with the routing on my Nuvi.

july 22 speaking of routing

july 22
speaking of routing - my unit took me about 50 miles out of my way to get to I70 when I was on I70.
It took me 50 miles south on 75 then back up to I70.
I can't explain that.

lost

in Arizona we stopped for lunch in a little off road restaurant and I turned my Garmin off, after lunch I turned it on again and loaded my destination and off I went following directions from garmin until we left the black top road heading into the desert on a dirt road, at that point I turned around headed back to the restaurant turned the garmin off and back on and it sent me in another direction that was good! I wonder where would have sent me if I followed it the first time LOL

New Map ?

Wait!!!! Did I miss it ?

are we there yet?

Can't tell

I contacted Garmin support

I chatted with Garmin support:

Greg:
Is there going to be another map update? It's been 163 days. The previous longest interval since at least 2009 was 147 days.

Kari:
Hello Greg, there will continue to be updates however, we do not have the dates of when they are coming. I would anticipate it would be soon though.

Greg:
Thanks. When I bought my first Garmin, they promised 4 updates per year. For a few years now it's been down to 3 per year. Are they going down to 2 per year?

Kari:
We do not specify an exact number of releases or when they are going to be release. I would anticipate about 3 releases per year.

(end of chat)

-----------------

Is my recollection correct that Garmin used to promise 4 updates per year? Or is that just how often it happened to be 2010 - 2014?

Correct.

Your recollection of 4 updates per year is correct. When Garmin announced the Lifetime Map Subscription service in 2009, they advertised quarterly updates. The last .40 version of the NA maps was CN NA 2015.40 released on March 24, 2015. Over time Garmin has "softened" the language in their policies and user agreements regarding the frequency of map updates.

As I recall all that was said was "UP TO 4 updates per year".

or

"or as long as Garmin receives map data from its third party supplier which ever is shorter"
so they don't have to give you more then 1 update a year and if they don't agree to pay the cost of the third party map data that's it no more map updates !

Garmin is a business if part of the business doesn't make money what happens ?
I have an older 1450lm I know their not making any money off of that model any more at some point in time they will have to cut the cord because there is no profit just cost.

The next map update is one year away

Perhaps Garmin is delaying new map updates so in the future the map numerical names and the map updates will align themselves more accurately date-wise. That is, the next map release, 2020.20, will occur around early summer of 2020, next year. shock

Straw man argument for Garmin

Once the device is bought, they aren't making any more money off of it, unless you break something.

I know how to get Garmin to publish the map update tomorrow

I'm pretty sure I know how to get Garmin to publish the map update tomorrow.

You see, I never installed 2020.10, released January 30th. I'm still on 2019.30, released November 7th, on both of our Garmins. Why is that? Because I wasn't paying attention and forgot to check until May. By then it looked like another update would be along soon, and 2020.10 was only a couple months newer than 2019.30, so I decided I might as well just wait.

So how can I get Garmin to release 2020.20 tomorrow? Simple, all I have to do is install 2020.10 on both of our Garmins today. Garmin is sure to release 2020.20 the day after I install 2020.10. Possibly the hour after. Possibly before I even finish installing 2020.10. You can bank on it.

On second thought, maybe I should start a Kickstarter project to see how much people will pay me to get Garmin to release 2020.20...

We Are Back

After 18 days on the road we are back. Our car has an in-dash Tom-Tom based GPS. We also took our Garmin Nuvi650 along. Our Garmin, which is 10 years old now, may be showing some signs of aging. It froze-up, possibly because it got too hot. Anyway it unfroze after the battery died. So now that we are back, still have to wait for a map update. Hopefully soon.

hmmm

I haven't had a GE update in a while I thought they might update it just before the map im starting to wonder if we are only getting 2 map updates this year

Not a map update issue but ...

... that last little software update that came up a couple of days ago made my Voice Command inoperable when I first used my device (a 2689). I had to restart it a second time before it started working again. No big deal, but I haven't had that happen before.

You and me both ...

I have a 2455 that I have not updated to 2020.10. I should grab it and update it now.
