Try doing the update using a card reader... I did the update using my 4GB SDHC card in a card reader and Home gave me the choice of one download or options (which I didn't bother with) - for the Western Europe map.

Download went smothly, copied over mapsettings.cfg from my backup, created a new favourite and all went smoothly. Favourites, POIs, warning sounds all miraculously survived Razz

First stress free update for some time.... Haven't tried the map out yet, however.

I wonder if TT will offer users with 2GB devices the 2GB version of the Europe map as the expanded version will no longer work on those devices?

Not sure i follow.

Those with 2 Gb devices ARE being offered the 2 Gb map, however it's now bigger than 2 Gb plus you have to take into account the NavCore eats into the 2 Gb storage space allowance. It was tight when the 845 map was just over 1.8 Gb...

All TT have done is offer a bigger 4 Gb (with more detail) map split into portions under 2Gb...

My 940 has just finished updating and only has a single 2,21GB Western_and_Central_Europe map folder installed (Build 2800), that said there is plenty of space on the device since I removed the North American map quite some time ago - Mike

Is this map being offered to 950 Live owners yet? I can see new maps in the "Add maps" with version 850.2802 that might be the one I am expecting but HOME is not offering it to me as an update automatically.

I have subscribed to the 2year map update service but I am suspicious that TT have screwed up when activating it on my account.

Also, I am not being offered the navcore 9.053 update through HOME yet. Is anyone else with a UK 950 LIVE seeing it? Can I force HOME to offer it?

Strangely enough, Europe_850.2800 and Western_and_Central_Europe_2GB_850.2800 are almost exactly the same size. WaCE is actually slightly larger.

Europe is 2,374,959,104 bytes
WaCE 2GB is 2,375,122,944 bytes

edit: changed map sizes to exclude fuel and speedcam data

At what point does it become obvious whether the full map or the 'chunked' version is being applied?

I've started downloading, 3+ hours remaining. So far it's not asked me which zone I want to apply... will that come later, or is it installing the full shebang?

Thanks.

I did see a 'change region' link below the map when it was offered but didn't click it, and so far it hasn't asked me any specific questions. So fingers crossed.

Not impressed with this - the idea of having a device with a European Map on it is that it covers Europe - not just some of it and you have to take a laptop with you and change maps!


What a load of rubbish they have left us with.


It's daylight shrubbery!

It only asks if the map won't fit on the unit.

When can you get a 4Gb MicroSD card from? I've found a few but they were 35!!! 2Gb only 10-15....
