    I've just downloaded what I hope if the latest Europe map for my Start 25. The number shown on the device is v925.5451 but dated 2/14.

    Can someone please confirm that this is the latest, please?

    The latest is v930 and v935 is imminent. But if you don't have the Start 25M with Lifetime Maps then perhaps v925 is the last one to which you were entitled without spending money.

    Many thanks tgold, and there's me thinking I was up to date :oops:

    Can I assume that these new maps are published every six months? and how do I find out when they are available?

    I have a deal for updating my map six times so it would be very helpful to know when I should do it.

    Maps are published quarterly, and the version number has traditionally been incremented by 5 each time. So your 925 map is only one behind, but as noted, 935 should be coming out any time now.

    Whoops, I hope I'm not replying to this answer twice but thank you tgold for your quick reply.

    I have a deal for updating my map six times and am trying for the first time to download it. However, the download was rather quick so I needed to find out if it had succeeded. I've had my Start 25 for about 18 months with many Mapshare updates but not a main map download. A couple of weeks ago the device told me my map was six months out of date which I why I'm trying now to update.

    Is there anyway I can find out if a map update is available?

    Cheers, canderson, that is very helpful.

    and of course, during these exchanges my device has started to download a far larger file (over 2hrs) so I'm hoping that it is 'doing the business' now.

    I've never heard of a six times update plan you described, but if you are limited in exactly that way and with no time limit then you might consider aborting the current download of a map that may be replaced within days and wait for v935.

    Oh, b*m, I just came back to say that v930 has installed and then I read your message . . . . . :rolleyes:

    Thanks anyway, tgold. By the way, I don't think there is a time limit, just the number of updates I can download.

    I suspect 935 will be released tomorrow, Tuesday.

    I suspect it's one of those Euro plans where the user pays for the subscription and then receives the next 6 quarterly updates, not 6 updates whenever he feels like taking advantage of them. So I doubt that downloading 930 has done any more damage than to use up a little unnecessary bandwidth from his ISP.

    I've just checked and you are correct. I paid £45 for four updates over a year and then get two updates 'free' so effectively eighteen months of updates.

    Thankfully I don't have limits to the amount of data I download so its not a problem.
