1. IIRC about 10 - 15 mins.
2. Possibly, but for no particular reason I wouldn't. But if you do, please let us know whether it works or not.

i go with 20mins to update the unit. i do it when driving to work.
turn off stop/start though. i had it once where the volts dropped enough when it fired back up which restarted the HU mid-update. Re-applied the update and all went well, just a wasted a bit of time.


It's a crap update though. not sure if they've got the M1/M6 junction redesign on it (forgot to check on the 24th), but it still doesn't have the new bypass on that runs across north/east Norfolk. been open for 6-9months now iirc so should be plenty of time get things registered as an active road and applied to map data.
still glitchy routing too. tried to take me down 2 sides of a triangle (side roads), rather than continue on an NSL A-road (3rd side of a triangle). speed or distance... whatever... setting should of never re-routed with that logic.

Garmin are fairly renowned for 'glitchy routing' but this 'feature' seems fairly common to most satnavs. You might claim that (say) TT doesn't do it, but TT will probably get some other route 'wrong' when Garmin get's it 'right'.
But Hey Ho!, please let's not go down that particular route as it has been discussed to death elsewhere.:surprise:

Map updates aren't like paper atlas updates.

Any change to a road needs to have the associated 'metadata' changed so the routing algorithms can get it right (allegedly).

That's why some roads are often late being implemented.

1 It took me 25 minutes to update.
2 I prefer driving while making the update. It feels crazy to stand still with an idling engine.

Always updated fine but this time get a message saying " there is not enough space on the device to install the map update from the usb storage device" and to "contact your dealer or service centre".

I'm surprised, when I checked for the crv, the 2019 download was there!
Just need a decent sized stick now to download onto.

Was sorted by deleting everything from the stick and starting the process again.

was just about to say that. GE seems to not know it's has old version data on the stick when it does a capacity check. i use a 16gb stick just to stop this happening - ensuring 50% free seems to be a good way to ensure you dont get the error.

Well, I managed to update it for the CRV
. Formatted the USB to blank it, went back onto garmin express and it wouldn't update the USB for the FK8 CTR, as per pic.
Anyone got any ideas why?
