Another Month To Go

For a map update?

I was thinking the same thought earlier today but I figured it will be about another month since Garmin changed from 4x to 3x updates/year.

I Hope Soon

Bring it on!

Likely see it mid October

Seeing as the last one came out around 06/23/2021, we should see the next one mid to late October if they stick to 3 release dates a year.

Updates

Could you imagine the anticipation if Garmin just pushed only 1 update a year (shudder). rolleyes

As I'm not doing any real road travelling right now, I also can patiently await the next update.

Now if we could just get the red light camera database updated hourly, wirelessly to our devices (cellular), that would be sweet! (1 can dream) grin

I don't subscribe to the Garmin database, as it is not as accurate as the one kept here.

I love to get Garmin map

I love to get Garmin map updates, although I only do one or two long drives a year.

Be Prepared

Timely updates of new Garmin maps keeps you at the ready like the Boy Scout's motto, "Be Prepared". exclaim

I usually update

But this will be my second season flying to Mexico instead of driving without my Garmin, so really no need for a new map update.

Having said that I recently had to attend a memorial for a friend 2 hours away from where I live. Just for curiosity I laid out my route on my laptop using my 2013 Microsoft Streets and Trips and it had their newly built (2 years) house and street. Incidentally Google Earth gave me the wrong location.

4 month now

4 month now

Number of Updates

So they're only doing three updates a year now as opposed to four? I've been a little out of the loop and missed that news. When did that happen?

why did they roll back to 3

why did they roll back to 3 updates a year from 4?

2015 Was The Last 4x/Year Update

The last 4x/year update was 2014 for the 2015 map iterations. http://www.poi-factory.com/node/42417

I suppose

Common sense would say the number of people buying new Garmin's has probably dropped dramatically reducing the available monies for updates.

As for myself I have never seen any dramatic changes in an update !

Yawn

While I religiously update my maps, I really don't get much out of them. Not that many new roads here although my daughter's several year old tract was not shown in the summer update. And my house is still mistakenly shown up the street despite several of my notifications to the supplier to the contrary.

On my GPSr, POI's aren't all that helpful because when we are on the road (freeway), they often show POIs well behind us. Or well off our route.

Never Will

And it never will. Addresses assigned by 911 standard will appear the distance from the bginning of the block, as indicated by your address number. It equals the miles and tenths your house is located from the surveyed starting point. Example address 1500 is located 1.5 miles from the origin. That could be the beginning of the road, or the center of town, etc.

Addresses assigned by dividing the block into X number of divisions, (10 plots on each side of the the road, numbered 1000, 1100, 1200, etc, will appear where the GPS thinks they are by distance from the starting point. In reality there are 10 houses on each side, and none fit the GPS distance 911 assigns.

So, your house will never appear on a gps in it's correct location.

Newer premium Garmin devices use a mapping feature called door-to-door or point addressing which gives precise locations for about 80% of North America residential addresses. See Charlie's FAQ: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/42527.

Alan... Am I correct then

Alan... Am I correct then that my address: 440 means it is .44 of a mile from the intersection?

Up until the time we added the garage (2005) to the vacant lot, We did not know the address... Plot of Survey mentioned Lot # but no address... The Builder: During a conversation on phone informed us of our address that was assigned to the building permit. (we built garage via 'remote control' -- He did work and sent pictures, while we worked in a different state.).. During the build I changed jobs, and never saw finished garage for 3 years! I have always wondered what the criteria was for addresses!

Thank you for any clarification!

@JanJ

Actually phranc deserves the credit for describing the various ways that the algorithms are used to calculate the location from an address.

It is certainly possible that your address is one of the 20% or so that does not have exact point addressing information from the mapping provider. And therefore the location would be calculated from the address using one of the methods described by phranc. Those methods can generate a result that does not match the exact location of your property.

It doesn't really matter, because the same addresses that were missing before will still be missing.

Maybe..
