*GARMIN SATNAV UPDATE - FIXED UPDATE HAS RE-APPEARED - GET IT WHILE IT'S HOT!!!*

Please don't perform an update to your Sat Nav system, as described in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=802 as is will likely render it unusable.

This topic will be updated when Garmin release a confirmed fix.
*UPDATE* - As far as I can tell, this issue is now resolved. Format your USB stick and do the update. If you already updated to the broken version, Garmin Express will notify you that there are no updates available when you insert your newly initialised stick (after putting your car credentials on it again). Ignore this and click the blue 'Map Options' and then click 'Reinstall Map'

*UPDATED UPDATE* - IT'S BACK!!! :D

Aargh too late !!!

Guess seeing the dealer does not help this either.
This needs to come from Garmin, as an update to the update?

Just received e-mail from Garmin:

Dear Garmin Customer,

I am the case owner for all European Automotive technical issues.

I am contacting you as I have been made aware of the issue you had with your Honda device since the map update.

I have received some new information since you have contacted us and I wanted to let you know that we are currently investigating this.

Please bear with us and we will contact you again once we have details about the resolution.

Many thanks.

Kind regards,

After contacting the dealer on this this week and seeing the problem themselves:

“The issue is known to Honda and they have reported it to Garmin”.

Now let’s see when the update on the update is coming…

Keep checking GARMIN Express on your PC and it'll say when a new update is available.
