Anyone got a screenshot of the new less distinct speed signs.

I'll hold off updating this time as I do make use of this feature when in unfamiliar territory and not always paying attention.

I now find that the previous very clear speed limit sign has been replaced by a less distinct rectangle with, subjectively smaller numbers. If it ain't broke then don't fix it!
Grrrrr


Didn't see that after the map update. Sounds more like a different locale has been selected so you have a different screen layout. Screenshot would be useful so we could see exactly what you mean.

Well thank you BAVC very much for the update on the maps.

But the new Garmin map (allegedly 2019.2) ignores that the £400m A1M 3-lane upgrade, including Catterick to Scotch Corner, was fully completed in March this year, yet Garmin are still showing it as a miserable two-lane non-motorway dual carriageway.

Clearly they are not in touch with major developments.
Are they in touch at all, I ask ??

Dales.

Guess the relevant authority hasn't told Garmin. A recent road development near me appeared on the latest map issue only a few weeks after it was completed.

That's the thing, they probably rely on being told.

My DriveSmart 51 updated with no issue but, when I tried doing the same woth my Nuvi 3590, I got an error message. It just told me to contace customer care.

Thinking that the problem might be the size of the card installed, 8 GB, I tried replacing it with a 32 GB card, using two different examples, but got the same message.

I then downloaded it to my computer hard drive and tried copying to the SD card but got message that files were corrupted.

I know that there is an upper limit to the size of the SD card and wonder if I have tried using one that is too large?

Size in this case doesn't matter. The key is that it should be formatted FAT32.

I'd check that Express is up to date then try again

Just about had it with Garmin now. I've never been sent in to so many lay-by's and down dead ends in my life. It's embarrassing when I am ferrying foreigners around the UK and I am constantly being directed along unsuitable roads.

Thinking about an alternative and rely on my mobile for alerts!

I'd love to travel with you one day to see exactly what is happening. My Garmin has never sent me into a layby or taken me down a dead end except once in France due to new roadworks.

Odd isn't it !

I just did a 90 mile trip back from the south coast today. I set my 2699 to 'go home' and I monitored the route.
Not once did it do anything daft.

Canít say Iíve come across any dead-ends or lay-bys. Iíve had a few loops off the motorway junction only to come straight back on although these are a much less frequent occurrence nowadays.

On the whole Iíve no complaints about Garmin's routing performance.

Where in West Sussex are you? I'm conveying Canadians around the UK for the next two weeks. We've been based in Maidstone for last two days, moving on to Portsmouth tomorrow evening for two days.

Today we were travelling from Maidstone to Welling (DE16 3DA) and shortly before the destination, it sent me along Rippersely Road which went through a wooded area, several speed calming bumps and to the end where there was a gate with a no entry sign on it. The map was routing me through the gate so I had to turn around to rejoin the previous road which easily brought me to my destination.
