Sat Nav Update Removes Uk Postcodes

Recommended Posts

Update - well, by 5am this morning, the download completed (i.e. 7+ hours)! Now I just have to find a spare 40 mins to do the update in the car!

Looking back at my comments when I first updated the maps, it looks like the process of dismounting the USB and insisting that I re-synch with the car is "standard practice" as far as my installation is concerned!

One other observation - in order to allow the download to stop/restart, I'd selected the option "retain cache files on the PC". Once the update is complete and loaded into the car - don't forget to clear the cache (4GB of files)..... the next map update will simply keep adding more and more to the cache.

Second instalment of the update - All now seems OK - though I still needed to get rid of the iso file on my USB stick (otherwise it checks the update every time I start the car). The map update took about 40 minutes in the car... then a further download and update. The 3D map is a bit flatter than it used to be - yet to decide if I like it or not. Some of the voice commands have changed (I think!).,... so what is a "favourite" destination?

The only other change - the nice lady no longer says "You are over the speed limit".... now she says "The speed limit is 40mph".

She ought to say "The speed limit might be 40mph". ;)

Found another feature of the update today - following sat nav instructions, when it comes to leaving a motorway, the junction is now shown as a reality photo-style image of the exit slip road.

Also, "favourites" on voice commands is actually the list of "my destinations".

I have not had this problem at all and I have not suffered in waiting for a long time for major downloads. Are you re-formatting the USB stick every time you go for an update? This is a "must" if the "update USB" is to perform correctly. I strongly advise you to use at least an 8gb USB as well as some of the downloads are large and only use it for Touch and Go downloads.

re Russ - and 3D mapping being too flat - have you tried ticking the "auto zoom" option on the map (something like options, map options, auto zoom).... it seems to zoom the map in enough to be useful, then pans out to show complex junctions etc.
