BIG NEWS FOR CF CARDED GPS ON GOLDWINGS

Postby themainviking » Fri Jul 15, 2011 7:10 am

Hey everyone.... I just returned from Wing Ding and spoke with a Garmin Representative who was there to specifically address the CF card type GPS systems --- 2005 to 2008 US Models and 2005 to 2010 Canadian Models all fit this requirement. That new upgrade mentioned above for $95 will also update the firmware for our GPS systems, making it compatible with NT mapping. They heard our noise and (the rep said) worked very very hard to get this new firmware available, under the insistence of the Honda Customer Service people. So all the complaining everyone did to Honda and Garmin "MAY" have been to some avail. I hope this new firmware doesn't screw up our GPS systems totally, lol.....

Okay folks - newest news as of this morning (Friday 15 July, 2011) from Garmin is as follows:

Garmin has identified an issue with the map update card for the Honda Gold Wing Navi. This issue affects map updates for model years 2006–2008 US and 2006-2010 Cdn. As a result, shipments are temporarily on hold. Garmin is committed to quality and customer satisfaction, and we are proactively working to resolve this issue in a timely manner. We expect the map update cards to begin shipping in August, and we apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause.

So, we cannot get these new $95 updates yet for our CF carded GPS systems. Try back again in August (probably very late August, lol)
