    its an ongoing issue. they havent updated the downloads for months. we have discussed this on the forum over the last few months and several members have tried to discuss it via email with the suppliers to no avail.
    the problem seems to be that the chinese sellers were including pirate software and the updates have been stopped.

    working on a solution though

    Okey dokey, I have emailed the seller a few times about an ongoing problem about having to recalibrate it all the time, no reply as yet

    As mentioned in This Post it isn't just the Chinese cheapies that are now deficient in truck maps (so can not possibly do what they advertise they will) but also devices sold by UK companies which source their supplies from Shenzhen. The (Lancaster based) company I mentioned in that post is still selling "truck" sat navs at around twice (or higher) the price of the Chinese cheapies but its latest map update set (which has to be downloaded over a very slow connection from China) apparently still has no .ftr file within it.

    Eventually, I gave up, after many emails, as there standard response came down to being told "not to worry" and " It is out of warranty, send it back for repair." No amount of reasoning could get them to see, that it was not broken, so did not need a repair, only updating and so it was pointless to return it. After several weeks, going around this circle, I found more important things to do. They did send me the 2014 map set, which was what I already had though, which leads me to believe that is as good as it gets. :madder:

    They also denied software piracy. :mask:

    I've given up on mine as well. It was a bit suspect as it had crashed on several occasions but identifying the piracy issue was the last straw. I've been investigating alternatives as a backup to the Garmin Camper 760, which is very good in general, but have been having problems finding one which works properly.

    I have not had the opportunity to actually use the one I bought in earnest at all. To make things worse I was overnight in the the UK at Gatwick last Tuesday. Stuffed into hotel at East Grinstead, looked into the Alid store while mooching about and ended up buying a Garmin 660 LMT-D Europe 45, on offer for 199.00. Very pleased with that playing in hotel and all updated when I got it back here on Wednesday. Driving female voice bonkers on this island of narrow lanes and sharp bends. Looks promising for France this year. Not as simple as the Tom Tom but that is simply differences training.

    Not the reply you are looking for but I think you are probably better off forgetting the Chinese number, putting it down to the learning curve and popping into your local Aldi, I wish we had one on Guernsey.

    Good luck Clive:france:

    Simpler than the latest TomTom Trucker models - and at least it has the features people require :D

    Good morning GJH,

    I agree. I am just having to retrain the old brain after years of Tom Tom.

    Very pleased so far, even stooped to reading the instructions!

    Cheers Clive

    Oh dear, I hate to see a man have to resort to that.

    I hope it was as a result of a shout of "why don't you read the book" from the love of your life (like I get) rather than a symptom of illness ;):LOL:

    Yes, I know just what you mean. On the rare occasions I ask my wife to navigate I will count myself lucky if she can find the right page in the map book. She will usually then hold the book up and point to a road saying something like ' look, this is where we are'. She just doesn't understand I can't look at the map book while I am driving the van!

    I bought a Nozatec last year and wish I had put the £40 towards a proper sat nav ...... Gave it away last week!




    P.S. How's it going @bobandjanie :D
