For those of you with a Garmin Sat Nav latest version of maps (2019.20) just released.
Updated both desktop pc and Camper sat nav (concurrently) in about half an hour.
Will do our travelling lappie and other sat nav later.

Thanks for reminding me to update.

I dropped my drive assist 50 a few months ago resulting in two cracks across the screen so that only the right hand botom third worked for touch(not very useful).

Also an update a few days before this had blocked voice command for places to be searched for. I got the message 'not available for UK English'.  It still allowed me to tell it to go to my previously stored favourites.

I carried on using it as a dash-cam, speed monitor, and traffic jam detector as these all worked.

Today I did an update and I have full voice command functions again so all is not lost

Thanks for the heads up, but when I plugged in my Garmin, Garmin Express said that it would take 3 hours to update - okay, I install on both my computer and the satnav, so I can use the maps on Garmin BaseCamp without having to plug in my satnav. Still, I consider the time spent worth it.

My drive assist 51 seems to have lost my local road through the village.. It can still see the main roads. Looks like a trip back to Garmin again.

I updated my 760 just before we went away to France

It was noticeable that you have to be very aware of your surroundings over there as on a number of occasions it would try to direct me down 3.5T limited roads and through 'sauf riverains' areas. It never tried to go down any low bridge routes, but they were always at the front of my mind.

Perhaps France doesn't give Garmin as much help as over here?

Second sat nav and lappie updated.  Took about 40 minutes to do both.
As Sean says, initial expectations is for it to take hours but never been more that 40-45 minutes actual time.  Having said that we do have fibre broadband (civilisation has reached Weegieland unlike Embra!).
