  • Has anyone tried to update a 7200T and checked to see that the 3D Landmarks are working again? There was a problem with the last update that had me lose the 3D buildings so I went back to the Q2 maps from a backup.
  • Spyder63 231 Points
    So far it does not appear to be fixed. I cannot load the Landmark demo routes in my 7200.
  • Just completed the map update for my 2100max. I noticed that the street names don't appear on the 3D view (settings are correct). This happened once before and I ended up doing another download and reinstall for everything to work correctly. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Has anyone tried to update a 7200T and checked to see that the 3D Landmarks are working again? There was a problem with the last update that had me lose the 3D buildings so I went back to the Q2 maps from a backup.

    UPDATE: Looks like 3D Landmark mode has been fixed with Q3_2009. The demo files still do not load so I set up a short simulation route out in Las Vegas, where there are plenty of 3D casinos and buildings and it shows them on the route. Still nothing to get real excited about, but they are there.

    In response to davelac - On my 7200 I am seeing street names A-OK in 3D view. Unchanged from previous maps.
  • This is good news indeed! I will wait to hear from more 7200t owners before I attempt an update. :mrgreen:
  • I did a complete reset of the unit and the street names now appear in a 3D map - look slike its back to normal. Now to update my 5100max and 7200T.
  • There are now no less than four 2009 Q4 North America map sets on their European site, each map set intended for a subset of devices. So yes, there is a map set for the 7200t and 8100t devices which have been upgraded to the 7310 and 8310, respectively. Although, those maps may indeed work with those devices, which have not been upgraded with the newer software versions.
  • Wow what happened to some of the posts on this thread? Looks like they were deleted. :shock:
  • This forum reminds me of a country I once lived in. Strict censorship and not much fun. Hail to the Admin.
  • Does anyone know if there is a formal procedure for suggesting updates to the POI in GPS navigation software. I know it is extremely difficult for any entity to stay on top of the changes going on in the businesses opening and closing, especially in today's economy. But do companies like NAVTEQ who manage the database for GPS software accept input from "trusted" users who would like to help keep information accurate?

    If there were pockets of "trusted" users around the country serving as inputs to the database, our GPS software would be even better.

    This brings up the question, how do the GPS databases gather current information about POIs? They even have difficulty keeping track of big box stores like WalMart.

  • Will the Q4 2009 maps work on the 2100max (4.3inch unit).

    Thank you //

    Your initial post which started this thread is the same info and may be somewhat confusing to new(er) Navigon users with different models. Your information is for European users that might be traveling to the US and would like US maps on their Navigons. All gps models listed as compatible are European models only. Cost is $129.00 EU = $185.00 US. These maps are not the quarterly updates that US users with either free or paid Freshmaps subscriptions are waiting/hoping for. Just wanted to clarify.

    While Q4_2009 US map update has been "promised" by Navigon they are considerably behind in fullfilling. I wonder how long we have to hold our breath this time?

    Your observations are correct, but the purpose of acknowledging this information is to bring hope to the Navigon community that the US market isn’t dead, as well as to inform the consumers of the ability to still obtain a Navigon unit with its newer features and to know that it’s operational in the US with current maps. Because of the economy, Navigon’s decision was to pull out of the US market. But that decision doesn’t mean that when our FreshMaps subscriptions run out, that Navigon won’t be an obtainable unit for the US market. If there units are made to work in many countries, then there is still the ability to have a robust PND that works in ours. :idea:

    Are you an employee of Navigon Inc or affiliated with the company in some capacity?

    Based on your personal info that you are located in Washington, DC one assumes you are a US consumer. By your statement above how would a US consumer purchase a Navigon unit with the "newer features"? Or are your statements directed at the non-US market consumer?

    In addition, if the US market isn't dead why aren't 't we receiving quarterly map updates or decent, timely support of consumer questions and concerns, including warranty issues and replacement parts?

    I don't understand what you mean by "doesn’t mean that when our FreshMaps subscriptions run out, that Navigon won’t be an obtainable unit for the US market" in the above statement?

    Just curious and playing devil's advocate here. :lol:
  • +1! :D
  • I just updated my 7200T to Q3 2009 looks like they have been out for awhile does anyone know how long it takes them to release new maps?
    I like the change from grey to brown back ground color!

    Nobody really knows. It took them an extremely long time just to get Q3/2009 to us. We're already in the middle of Q1/2010 and we haven't even seen Q4/2009 yet. It's wait and see and hope with them at this point.
  • It will be very interesting to see if and when the next Navigon map updates is released. A major modification to an Interstate Hwy 5 onramp and offramp close to my house was completed almost a year ago. Entry to the Interstate was changed from left turns to right turns in both directions. The Q3 update still reflects the old interchange. Current NAVTEQ data shows the new configuration. Here's hoping that we get the next map update and that it truly encompasses the latest NAVTEQ data and not something several months old.

    Perhaps we are all whipping a dying horse. While I haven't yet made the move myself, there are many people who will be foregoing dedicated navigational devices and using navigational capabilities on smartphones.

    I currently have an android phone that has google maps navigation. It's WAY more accurate than Navigon and the updates are great! If I report an error to them, it's usually fixed within a month and that fix is reflected on my unit. What keeps me from completely ditching Navigon is, a speedometer, altimeter, lane assist, reality view on the interstates, and the map just looks better to me. If Google added these features to its navigation, I'd sell my unit in a heartbeat!

    Some of you have been wondering about the status of Navigon, Inc., and their responsibility as it pertains to map updates. They have been very consistent with their European customers in providing US maps, updated on a biyearly basis producing Q/2 and Q/4 maps only. With this being the case, it’s no wonder that our quarterly maps have been reduced to seeing them only twice a year. Their next scheduled update for the Europeans to purchase US maps is, (Navigon release Q2/2010 map of North America).

  • Not only that, 1Q2010 maps are available for download.
  • Wade 81 Points
    Yeah, I have the 1Q2010 maps downloading now... over two hours and only at 68%.

    Their U.S. servers must be powered by hamsters now....
  • takawira 0 Points
    You forgot to mention that the maps now require a 4GB card. I tried to download and I kept getting the error message about not enough space. I was confused because NavigonFresh says the download is 1600MB (I have a 2GB card). But they put a disclaimer saying the 4GB card is required (basically the system will not even let me download to my 2GB card).
  • davelac 91 Points
    Updated my 2100max last night. I'll give it a test today. If all goes well I'll update my 5100max and 7200.

    Sorry about that. I will definitely remember the next time to include all the major details.

    You can always download a zip version of the update directly via the website and then delete a few voice languages such as spanish or french. Then it should fit the 2GB card.
  • takawira 0 Points
    Actually, I checked the final download size using my 4GB SC card and it's 1.61GB. I am confused why Navigon wants us to buy 4GB cards.
  • I downloaded the new 1stQ 2010 zip file and unzipped it a 2GB SD card and it worked fine. Did not have to delete anything. but if you use Freshmaps you need a 4GB SD card.

    I wonder if the POI's are updated?

    This version of the maps even has my new streets where I live.
    :D
  • that is strange because the zip file i downloaded showed over 2 gb. as long as it works. i noticed a few more pois so its worth updating.
  • I used the download mgr that they recommended. I think mine was about 1.8GB..
  • if yours is 7100 that explains it.

    Will this map update work on the 7200T? What's the direct download link? And what's the link for the zipped version?
    Thanks.
  • Spyder63 231 Points
    Yes it works with the 7200. File size is 1906.75MB. I DL'd the zipped version yesterday and it installed OK.

    If you have a valid FreshMaps subscription I suggest you find it yourself since you need to log in to your account to gain access.
  • Got it from the navaigon web site. You have to sign it and it points to the correct file. I think they are differant for each GPS. You have to have freshmaps account.

    When I log in to my Navigon account, it always points to Fresh for download and I already have the latest version of Fresh. Where does it show me where the zipped file is? Can't seem to locate it.


    Never mind. I found it. :lol:
  • Spyder63 231 Points
    Are you confusing the application "Fresh" with the map software subscription "Fresh Maps"? Different puppies.

    There is a new map update called Q1.2010. You probably want to get that. If you run Fresh, the app, it should show you if you are entitled to download the Q1.2010 map update but only if you have your gps tethered via USB and you are registered. Downloading via Fresh is for most a better way to go as it preserves all your Favorites, etc., while installing from the Zipped file (really intended for Mac users running Windows) will wipe out everything and you start from scratch unless you know where to look and how to save your stuff.

    I found it and am D/L the zipped version now. Thanks.
  • I'm not going to get to download this until over the weekend sometime. I was just wondering what you guys think of this update so far? Any majors differences in terms of the layout on the maps at all? The last update I got didn't seem to have any major differences as far as changes were concerned. Hopefully this one will be better and more accurate for my area. Thanks.

    Updated my 2100max yesterday. Went to the Navigon website and downloaded the ZIP file. You get to the ZIP file by selecting "Other OS" from the FreshMaps screen. It is a long download, and it is probably a good idea to use a download manager.

    Once I unzipped the file, I copied the NAVIGON directory to my SD card which I removed from the 2100max and accessed directly.

    VERY IMPORTANT! Perform a backup through Fresh before you start, and after that is completed, do a manual copy of the NAVIGON directory on the card to a folder on the computer.

    Once this was done, I deleted ONLY the NAVIGON directory from the SD card. and copied the NAVIGON forlder from the download to the SD card. Returned the card to the 2100max, and Q1 2010 maps were there. Was able to use Fresh to verify the installation. A pain in the neck, but it works on a 2GB card.
  • Wonder is the POI's got updated also?
  • Dondy 0 Points
    My Florida address had been changed by the post office a couple of years ago. I took over a year before Navigon showed this change. It finally did this with the 3Q 2009 update.
    I have finnaly received and downloaded 1Q 2010 map update on my 2100t.
    I had no problem with the download on a 4G card. But, to my supprise the old a Florida adddress shows up again. This makes me think that the latist update is from some older map.
    I've tried to comtact Navigon about this twice, but received no answer.
    Now when I click on Navigon Fresh I get this reply:
    "Navigon Fresh.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for this in convenience."
    I wonder what gives.
    Navigon has not been forthcoming with their updates and I'm wonder if we will ever get what we paid for in the long run. I feel Navigon has abandoned us in the U.S.

    It can often take several years for address and road changes to go from the real world, to being recognized by the mapping supplier, to being mapped by the mapping supplier, for the map supplier to put out a new release, to the GPS company (Navigon in this case) purchasing the new release, to them compiling the data into their own data format, to the GPS company releasing the updated map, to the end user then installing the updated map.
  • Spyder63 231 Points
    But...that doesn't explain why an earlier map version had his new address and subsequent map version does not. I have seen "newer" map releases from Navigon lose POIs, but never heard of an address disappearing. Maybe just an internal screw up at Navigon? Like just the other day I had a woman send me info on a new classic car event to be posted on our car club website and instead of sending me the event flier she sent a copy of her receipt of her online DOT car registration renewal. I suspect the two files had similar file names. I now know her home address, vehicle title number, VIN, and license plate. :oops:
