Garmin Map Update 2008

Anyone purchased the new map update from Garmin? If so, what is your opinion? Is it worth the money. Thanks!

Is it worth it? I dunno. I bought it as my GPS data was getting old. It uploaded onto the NUvi effortlessly without a hitch.
So far, I have not goten lost.
My car has a built in and it is 3 years old. The dealer wants $250.00 for the update. I said NO way !
At least the garmin was reasonable...

Hard to say. Ordered it a month ago, and two weeks later, got an email that it was on backorder. Will let you know when I get it.

Are you asking about MapSource or City Navigator? There is a bug in v8 of City Navigator.

The Road Type preferences slider works backwards. Select minor roads and it'll route you on major roads - and vice versa. There apparently is also a map issue with some maps in Texas.

Here's the Bug Report: Program bug (KMM1300686I10971L0KM)

City Navigator is what I ordered. Thanks for the bug notification. Garmin wasn't too forthcoming with the issue...

As for the routes in Texas, glad they found that before sending it. Sometime in late April (right around Easter), I'm heading back to the Texas Hill Country for a week of...

Uh...actually, I found it and reported it. Confused the heck outta me for a while. Sometimes it hurts to be on the bleeding edge.

I purchased it on line on a Monday and had it several days later from a 3rd party vender. Proadvantage.
Fast service and I have used them for other items as well.
