Thanks for heads up. I've just updated two devices, even ythough I swear one of them is no longer covered by the update service!

They're trying to buy you off - keep the heat on.

Edit: Link removed

Edit by DennisN - that's just your announcement of new Home version. Let's have map comments here.

Interesting - I'm being offered an update, which says it is version 870.3406, and 2438Mb in size, but there is "no description available" and nothing else about it.

Downloaded updated??? Europe 870 map in about 30 minutes. Good news is that it retained all my Favourites, warnings, etc without having to copy mapsettings.cfg, BUT I had to put the SDHC card in a card reader in order to download the full map. While the card was in my 750 Live, I was only offered one of the map zones Evil or Very Mad

So far, I have not used it in anger, but on a quick check the new road layout at Shawfield stadium and the realigned A730 at this point are still not reflected in this map... Not a problem if you are local, but as it gives totally wrong instructions at several points on the new route it could be very confusing for a stranger... It wouldn't be so bad if this (fairly major) road had not been open for well over a year now.

875, perhaps? Also, the new section of the M74 is shown as a dotted road at the moment - as it is due to open at the end of June, hopefully this will be reflected in the next map.

It looks as though they have at last corrected the London Congestion Zone - more than four months after it was reduced on 4th January!!

I've just downloaded and installed the UK 870 map, and I DID have to copy the MapSettings.cfg file from my backup to restore my settings. I've only had to do this once before in about 10 updates.

My 940 (9.058) did not need mapsettings to be restored and my 530 (8.351)did, I thought it was only V9 software and above that kept the mapsettings.cfg file.

For the GO 1000 the Europe map download is 3.2GB which I am currently downloading.

Same here but the map downloaded fine and shows version number correctly in status.

Still corrections I submitted 5 months ago are not in it, and corrections that I submitted to teleatlas and then got emails saying they would be in the new maps are not in it. - DELETED - DennisN
