    For those with Lifetime updates who have not checked recently there is a Europe map update available, Version 2016.20 using garmin Express.

    Strange!
    Just check my Nuvi 1490 its at 2016.10 and Garmin Express says it is up to date.
    However Express says update 2016.20 is available for my Garmin Camper.
    I've started that update going but during the day the estimate of 3 hour is wildly optimistic.

    I updated my Camper 760 and Nuvi 2569 this morning and both took far less than the predicted time.
    Express says the update is also available for the Nuvi 1300 which our son now uses (currently it has 2016.10).

    Same for me Graham. 760 Camper and 2460 Nuvi took about half the projected time to update!(y) Desktop and laptop updated at same time as well.

    Would one of you knowledgeable Garmin users advise me how to find out which version I have. I only had my nuvi 2669 recently and knowing how long the download takes, I am hoping to have the latest version already installed.

    Varies by model but 760 Camper is -
    • Settings
    • Map & Vehicle
    • myMaps
    "Guaranteed" you won't have the latest version installed. 2016.20 just released in last day or two.

    If you've got a standard Garmin Nuvi, can you upgrade to 'camper' software?

    You need to go onto the Garmin website and download the free "web updater" then plug your sat nav into you laptop, then the updater will tell you if it needs updating.

    Already answered for you, I am a bit slow :LOL:

    Thanks for the heads up on that.
    I thought I will do mine, oh bugger, can't find data cable. I think it got chucked because we thought it was for something we no longer have, so had to order another:(

    Garmin Express installed on a pc (or Mac) checks both unit firmware and map version, advises if updates available and allows you to install. It also allows you to install various vehicles (icons) \ voices \ etc as well
    http://software.garmin.com/en-GB/express.html

    You can also use BaseCamp on a pc or Mac to pre-plan routes and then transfer them to the sat nav.

    Majority of usb leads (with correctly sized connectors!) connecting sat nav and pc \ Mac will work using Garmin Express software.

    Just checked for my nuvi250 - says 2016.10 is latest version and up-t0-date. Probably have to wait then; I usually get an email too but nothing so far.

    Thanks for all of the advice, mine is a 2015 20 I discovered. I had no idea I could update as a 'Camper' this sounds very promising. After years with TomTom I am going through a quick learning curve. Alan

    You may have misunderstood Alan.. or I'm misunderstanding your post..

    but the update doesn't give you 'camper' options..
