Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC.

Well, that figures. I just got my GC on May 18th and on May 25th I ordered the map update. Had I known a new version was imminent, I definitely would have waited for just 2 more weeks. I just sent an email to Navigation.com to see if they'd possibly ship me the new update at no charge. I did offer to pay shipping. I am promised a reply within 4 days. Fingers crossed.

Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC.

Received two emails since my last post. The first said that my case was being escalated for further review, and the second said that the full price of the old map software would be refunded upon receipt of the original discs. They're on the way so I should see a credit shortly. Thanks navigation.com!

Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC (UPDATED 06/17/2014)

Just received the map update package today for the 2012 RHR 730N. Contents include software update. Notice the version number 2.600 for the RHR. I was running 2.184. Maybe **SOX** can fill us in. Sorry for the side way picture.

Unhappy Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC.

I just installed this package in my 2011 Summit RHR. Be patient, as the combined update process (v 2600, gracenotes, and map updates) took close to two hrs to complete. I also was previously running 2.184

When finished, contrary to what was stated in the installation guide, my iPhone was still paired and my radio presets survived.

Was the update worth purchasing ? The jury is out. There are subtle differences in the nav display, and the maps are definitely updated. For example, here in west LA, the 405 rebuild is now properly displayed. I haven't used POI functions yet, but Navtec is claiming there are "thousands" of updates. I am happy with my 2011, and even happier that it's paid off and running well; and plan to keep it until the release of the WK3...

Radio functionality appears to be about the same, but the screen diameter is still only 5 1/2".

Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC.

I just ordered the updated maps...I have a slew of travel coming and hopefully, the new maps will at least have some of the undoubtedly many changes that have happened "out there" since the last update.

Just ordered the maps for mine as well. 2015 maps and free shipping still pricey at $149!

Re: New 2014 RHR Map (June 9th) for 2012 JGC.

Received mine today. I'll install either over the weekend or during a long drive this coming week. I already updated my firmware to 2.6 a few weeks ago.

Only that the EQ was set back to flat...
