Sat Nav out of date
« on: November 20, 2022, 08:22:32 AM »
I got dealer to update my sat nav on new car after handover as my 2-3 year old development postcodes like TN21 0GA, TN21 0GB not on database but itís still the same. Told dealer to look into it. Anyone else have same problem or try one of the postcodes and can we check version?.
On my sat nav I have set Use Current Location to set home location so my location is Home 1 in a field.

Had this issue with a brand new Hyundai Tucson. Not sure if this applies to Honda, but it turns out that a lot of car manufacturers save money by not paying for the latest and greatest maps and data.

So Hyundaiís promise of 5 years free map updates was pretty much meaningless as the manufacturers maps were already at least 3 years out of date and when proven they were out of date and asked about when new maps would be available, I was told at least 18 months to 3 years and they didnít sound confident on that time scale either.

Previous to this I took my car in for satnav updates, they had it a day and it was returned to me with the exact same software map versions, though they claimed they were new. Fortunately I had taken photos of the software versions previously installed to prove them wrong. I ended up losing faith in the brand and bought a dedicated SatNav.

I waited over an hour for dealer to take car to area to update Sat Nav. I did ask them to check what version I had but was just handed my keys on return. A couple of months ago a delivery driver told me my postcode wasnít on his sat nav but he had been here when building was going on so remembered and Sky driver phoned me last year with same problem. Must be lots of people driving around with old versions.

The latest versions are only as good as the company that supplies them. I had a TomTom One that showed a dual carriageway in Kirkcaldy that didn't exist, never did exist and was not planned to be built. My stepdaughter's house is not on any sat nav I have used despite having been built many years ago. Most of the rest of the street is, except the bit at the end (a cul-de-sac).

I wonder if mapping providers rely on feedback. I don't suppose they can cover every nook and cranny.

Maybe a report would get them looking for a future update.

Happens with all brands of sat nav.  A couple of years ago my standalone (also a Garmin) tried to take me on the A14 through Huntingdon.   I had the latest maps, updated 4 times a year.    Unknown to me A 14 is now a bypass, and worst still a section of the original road had literally been dug up and returned to a green field  . Well grown.  Must have happened at least 18 months before.  Huntingdon was full confused and lost drivers. I could have found the old route, except it no longer existed! 

In some countries the opposite can happen.   Maps updated in advance of planned motorway construction.  Which gets cancelled or delayed for years. So the road you expected to follow does not exist.  In fact in a couple of instances I have followed the same route 3 years running , thinking that surely the road still featured on the latest  satnav updates  must be finished by now. Nah.  :P       And thats not counting the many times I have travelled on a road that has has obviously been open for years   yet on the satnav I am following a breadcrumb trail  in the middle of nowhere.   
If you win the rat race you are still a rat. These days I would rather eat cheese and wait for them with baited breath.
(inspired by W.C. Fields.   -For me any field  is now a potential WC Field.

Yeah, I shouldnt really complain if I've done nothing to help   :-[   I know the A14 was sorted not long after. The others were in places where I cant speak the local lingo, or fully familiar with locations .  Ok, maybe Garmin themselves dont speak the local lingo either and would welcome my input in english.  My pathetic excuses for doing nothing rarely bear close scrutiny   :-X

IIRC from an earlier post one of  the members on here is/ was closely involved in local map updating. Is that you?    If so   Thanks .Stuff doesnt just happen.   :-*

I did that and also pointed out that you cannot drive through the public park due to the steel posts set in the ground. Nothing changed.
The maps I have now for TomTom Go are updated regularly but one night I was directed through a strange part of Edinburgh (strange to me, though there are many very strange parts of Edinburgh). It wanted me to cross the Union Canal  - at a footbridge. When I drove away from it to find another route it kept directing me back. I had to use the inbuilt compass in my head.

My version 2.09
That's not the Map version, that's the Navigation app version, that rarely changes.

You need to look in Settings > Map and Vehicle > myMaps for the map version.

Works perfectly on Waze and Google maps.
