Attempted the download again this morning 3/3/04 but still the same error message Http 404 appearing. It's always at the same link "Please click here to begin downloading."

Contacted Support at D3 yesterday, and they have been very responsive but unable to resolve my problem.

I guess if other people are downloading the file successfully, it may be linked to the D3 Serial Number of the product ??

Hi,

I had the same problem for ages yesterday, in the end it went through. I suspect its the shear volume of people connecting.

Regards,

Steve.

Ok, here's something a bit strange! I started off the 1 GB + download at work today, but it was taking ages..... so when I got home just now, I decided to start the download off again here just to ensure I got it. However, when I went got into the screen where it asks if you want to download or order a CD, the menu option for ordering the CD was in German, and the download option said it was only 309 MB. Now that it is downloading though, the correct size of 994 mb is showing!

Weird!

As mentioned in my previous post, I started the download off at home last night and got the strange file sizes and French in the menu. Unfortunately it failed overnight sometime, and so my hopes were pinned on my work download being successful. NOT! It too failed at some point overnight. So, I though I'd put my CD order in for now and try to download it again. BUT, it looks like once you've ordered the CD, your licence is flagged and you can no longer download it! Through an error on my software vendor's part when I ordered North American maps for my European D3, I got a full version of the North American D3 as well. So now I have kicked off the upgrade for this version, even though I installed the software from the European CD's. I am 99% sure that the software is identical anyway and only the maps are different.... but we'll see. I need the download to complete first though!

Hi,

When installing the Destinator 3 upgrade the roundabout issue etc. is sorted but it seems to introduce a new issue making it impossible to use the trip planner functionality.

Afer adding a number of waypoint the system will only clalculate the route directly to one of the way points.

Anyone else had the same problem or am I doing something wrong?

No CD as yet, but I managed to download the patch.

Roundabouts - better, but still not right. Voice directions, and roudabout icons now are better than they were. However, Icons appear to be right biased. For example, crossing a roundabout to go straight over, will often show a right turn on the roundabout icon, though the voice is correctly identifying the, say, second exit.

A complex roundabout still causes it problems. It struggled to tell me the 4th exit on a 5 exit roundabout. It was as if there were no voice instructions for 4th. Voice said "Take roundabout __exit".

Voice has changed - I now get a UK sounding female voice. However, the upgrade, or the code still has remnants of the american female voice. On one particular set of roundabouts in Milton Keynes, I was getting both the new British Voice and the old American voice in quick succession for the same roundabout!!!! The British Voice was giving me the "fixed" Take Nth Exit instructions, whilst the American voice straight afterward was giving the brain dead Turn Right, Turn Left instructions for the same roundabout!!!!

Routing - (v.slightly) better, but still takes me down a single track road with no passing places on my way to work, when there is a much quicker main road route of similar distance (about 4/10ths of a mile longer).

Re-routing doesn't occur any more quickly, and you can still very easily beat D3 past each junction it wants to take you down next in a built up area whilst its thinking what to do, leading to continuous "thinking", and very little useful routing.

The above issues were discovered in one 45 mile journey after installing the upgrade. So Destinator clearly haven't learnt from the mistakes, and appear to still be inadequately testing their product!!!! On another forum, they have had offers of Beta test assistance, self-included with no response. Unless they are prepared to test their product, then I cannot see how they will ever get a workable release!!!

This "fix" has addressed in part some of the major issues. It is better than before, but with so many remaining issues I consider it still to only be of Beta quality.
