How do they even get the information on what has changed? Does the government publish changes to the roads, exits, etc? Then garmin somehow puts it all together?

Curious if anyone knows how they actually do it. Seems like magic to me.

Garmin has some information at the following link:
https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=pJLZBzPen9A7OXw5vlRyu5

Garmin used HERE.com at one point (for 20 years), I assume they still do.

Be nice if they incorporated the actual date in the version naming. year-month-day & hour if required.

Has anyone called Garmin?

I was just wondering if anyone has just tried to actually call Garmin and ask them what hell is taking so long with the next nap update?

I believe you inadvertently hit on the source of the map delay, the people at Garmin are taking a nap update. grin

That's hilarious... And possibly true at the same time.

Called Garmin

The CS.rep said should be out any day now.

It's late

Given this thread was started 30 weeks ago and then already 4 months in map updates are looking to be moving to yearly events.
One hopes the wait will be worth it.

Paid extra for lifetime maps ...

They should certainly be updated more often than yearly!
