I understand if you tell me a month or more but 15 days?!?!Come on!!
I understand if you tell me a month or more but 15 days?!?!Come on!!Yes, but let's be honest, you have over 46 posts and have been here since last year. You mean you didn't know the second quarter (.20) map update was expected this summer?
No problems other than the download time and the map extraction & installation time. Everything went smoothly albeit slowly. I did a hard reset just to be on the safe side. I'll post any problems I find.
And I didn't get the lifetime maps because I didn't know where or how my unit would be in one more year, if not, trust me I would have.
So far I am glad I got the lifetime. I paid $120 for it and have gotten 3 updates ($69 each) so far which if I paid for each would have totaled $210.In fact, you can get Numaps Lifetime for $94 from Amazon, no tax, no shipping.

RoadTrip, it suddenly occurred to me that you map update may have been "extracting" or unpacking since it arrives as a compressed file, and only appeared not to be continuing. That process sometimes takes up to 15 minutes or so (mine took at least that or so it seemed) and there is no pop-up status screen or any other indication that the update process is still going on until the extraction is complete (unless you're doing a manual update). Kinda dumb for Garmin not to make it more clear that everything is happening as it should. Guaranteed that a lot of owners simply restart the whole thing, thinking the program has locked up.
Gator,I launched System Activity during the update attempt. This lets you monitor the activity on your system. There is virtually no disk or CPU activity nor is there any network traffic. The Garmin Map Update program just sits there and does nothing. It does respond to the quit command though.I have emailed a report to Garmin Support and expect to hear back from them tomorrow.- rt
Well well well, now that we are bragging :)
What can I expect in the map updates ? Do they update the POI as well or just the actual maps ?
Well well well, now that we are bragging :)Can I download the package from work and then take it home on DVD or USB drive and install it without an internet connection, assuming I have my GPS at work when I download?
My 1.5 Mb/s is blazing compared to my 56k modem. :shock:
What are the statistical odds that Garmin will release 2010.20B (or any bug fix to 2010.20) by Rosh Hashanah? (that is September 18th)Are there any reported bugs to 2010.20 yet?
I'm curious to hear from users if it makes any difference regarding the "loves back roads" issue.
No problems other than the download time and the map extraction & installation time. Everything went smoothly albeit slowly. I did a hard reset just to be on the safe side. I'll post any problems I find.Same here, download and installation went fine.It really did not take that long:- download: 22 min- extraction: 4.5 min- installation: 16 minSo it was all done in about 45 minutes with no problems whatsoever, and my 855 seems to even still work. :D
Depending on the amount of memory on your PC it could take a really long time. If the PC doesn't have enough available RAM to unpack the installer in memory it may be swapping to disk and that could cause big slowdowns. Once it extracts the rest of the install should be quick though, so I'd give your all-night idea a shot.Rob
