Can someone with a new car in last few months enter my postcode TN21 0GA (thatís zero not O) into their Sat Nav to see if it works?. Can we find out what version on the Garmin?.

Works on my stand alone Garmin Drive 51LMT-S Sat Nav with Lifetime Map Updates, UK & Republic of Ireland

no problem.not sure of version but I Updated it on computer about  3weeks ago
Hope this helps.
Sorry I forgot to say the update completely reloaded the Sat Nav with the new maps firstly deleting the old one. If you interrogate the Garmin web site this should supply the latest version details.

My Garmin DS61 is showing no new maps, still on 2023.10

Must be imminent though.

My Crosstar's satnav has started to prompt me to update. My current map is 2022.10, so is there a new version out?

I think they give a timed prompt whether there's one available or not.

But I've already got 2022.10 installed !!!!!





Just to be doubly sure I went out and reloaded my USB stick. Then using KDiff3 the only difference is :

Old :

  <CreationTimeUTC>1641635406899</CreationTimeUTC>
   <Volume Name="gdxml" Id="1044039802" Free_space="22082719744" Permissions="1"/>

New:

   <CreationTimeUTC>1669446812710</CreationTimeUTC>
   <Volume Name="gdxml" Id="1044039802" Free_space="22082715648" Permissions="1"/>

The rest of the XML file is identical and all the way through the file in numerous places is :

<Major>2022</Major>
    <Minor>10</Minor>

I assume this means its essentially identical.  I thought they might slip in the odd essential  bug fix or map amendment as a freebie  on more recent uploads of the same version, without advertising it as a new version.  Seemingly not.    Obvious really if you think about it. They would need to record a change of version    even if its a free revision outside the updates that have been paid for.

"Use Current Location' took me home on a recent outing to my garage where I set it.

Not according to Garmin Express as I'm still being offered 2022.10 and my DS61 is on 2023.10 with no update.

Garmin support are useless. They appear to read from cue cards that are often way off the mark.

A few years ago the digital traffic stopped working. Garmin were called and after a conversation they wanted the unit sending back for investigation and possible replacement as they knew of no issues.

After my investigation via the DS61 developers menu I found that the TPEG signal wasn't being received and further investigation found that Digital UK did have a problem in the south.

I waited and after a few days all back to normal. What that did prove was that the Garmin did not switch from digital to TMC via radio as per the manual. I watched the receiver roll round all frequencies, both digital and analogue and find nothing.

At the moment, Honda is on 2022.10 and standalones are on 2023.10
