I'm wondering if anyone has an educated guess on when the next map update from TT will be released. I tried contacting them directly, but the CSR hadn't even heard of the quarterly updates. I'm sitting on my free map upgrade and wondering if I should wait or just pull the trigger.
As far as a set schedule of actual dates-- not that I know. However they have moved to a quarterly map release schedule and have verbally confirmed that to me... I don't know if it is written out anywhere though.

I don't think that's what they meant. How do they know when you start using the device???
GPS devices use satellites to track your position. In order to do that, precise times must be known. The device just has a little internal flash drive, so the first time you use it and the date/time becomes synced they just write the information to the internal drive.
As dhn alluded to I don't think that (first satellite date) is what they are using to determine the 30 day update. However the file they are looking at is stored inside the map folder of the device. Typically in a file the same name as your map with a .meta extension.
But it isn't the order date nor the date you received the package as they would have no way to easily know that information.
