Re: Map Update Process!!

Another pain is that when I plan a trip, I do on Google maps, MapQuest, And Bing maps and have the route all planned out. Then I punch the trip in to the NAV and it takes me a totally different way than any of those 3! I am unfamiliar with the area so don't know whether to trust it or not. I'm sure I would get there going the NAV way but I always just refer back to the way I have printed from the other 3. So I can't trust it!

Don't buy it and no, it's not returnable.

Depending on the Garmin unit you have, you can power some of them with a portable power pack. It's what I use in my car that does not have a 12V source.

Example;

I've done map updates from a USB drive in my 2012.
Notes:
The map update takes about 1 hour via USB. I've never done a map update from a DVD, only USB.

If your battery is fully charged (as it should be), you don't need to run the engine, but you do want to have the key in the 'run' position. If you have the push-button start this is 2 pushes of the button WITHOUT your foot on the brake (I have push-button start).

On ACC position with push-button start, your system will auto-shut-down at about 15 minutes. With it in the RUN position it will auto-shut-down in 30 minutes.

Set a timer for 25 minutes, then set to RUN position, start the timer and then start your update. Walk away for 25 minutes (as long as your Jeep is in a secure location). Come back and wait for the system to shut down and then go through procedure to get back to the RUN position/state and reset your time for another 25 minutes.

I've done these types of updates even during winter and never had problems starting up the Jeep afterwards.

Re: Map Update Process!!

I installed a Pioneer AVIC8000NEX in my 2013 MX5 Club PRHT and attempted to update the maps from Navtec. Using the USB procedure, every time I attempted to upload the maps to the unit, I got an ERROR DURING INITIALIZATION result. I contacted Navtec and they acknowledged a problem on their end. It took them about a month, but then they contacted me. I downloaded the maps again and the installation for the NA/Canada maps took about 25 minutes. I wonder if the Jeep maps are that much larger or whether the USB is a 1.1 instead of a 2.0 or 3.0.

This may help (and is something I did not notice for a while): When you type in your destination, you get the text box on the left with a big green "YES" button to press. I used to just press "YES". BUT, if you look to the right, there's a small non-colored button that says "Options" (IIRC). If you press that, you get a screen listing the types of routes (fastest, shortest, economical). BUT, there is another line that says "Route Comparisons" (IIRC). It is the only line with a carat at the right end.

When you press that line, you get 3 stacked windows on the left showing 3 route choices (fastest, shortest, economical). They are color coded in their boxes, and on the map (IMHO the color coding on the map is poorly done). As far as I can tell, there is no way to get a street by street list on this screen.

On this screen you can select which of the 3 routes you want (often they are the same route for 2 of the 3 choices).

This might reduce the number of varying routes you are getting.

FWIW, I usually have my Garmin NUVI plugged in and getting (non-digital) traffic updates. The 2 often do not agree on route. I use INRIX on my phone as the tie-breaker. INRIX is the most reliable and well-implemented traffic app I have found.
