Re: GPS map updates

True. I guess I should have been clearer by stating that I have found that Google generally gives me better traffic congestion data than Waze in my areas... I don't actually use either of them to pick my route, just for traffic guidance... I may give Waze another look though since it has been about a year since I last tried it...

Any idea what the data date is for the update?
Any idea when the street that didn't show up previously was added / modified?


The street has been there for quite a while, but the 2011/12 nav system didn't know how to navigate to it.

I received the update via Fedex yesterday. (Fedex still shows that they haven't received the package for shipping?) Installation was simple enough ... with car turned OFF, tilt the screen for access, remove the old SD card, insert the new one. Power on the car, receive a message about updating, and a gas gauge shows a two minute countdown. Turn off car, wait 15 seconds, turn it on, and the system starts as normal with the new map. I'll look for fixes and changes in my area over the next few days.

One odd thing ... the email I received from Navteq confirming the order included an activation code, but the system never requested one.

I doubt it was worth the price, but ... I have no self-control.

Re: GPS map updates

I ordered the new map on June 26. On July 1, I received an email saying that the item had shipped and giving a tracking number for FedEx.

I just called this afternoon (July 3) since the tracking page shows no progress (not even an estimated arrival date).

The Navteq guy told me they had printed the shipping label but evidently had not actually shipped the map.

I have already sent back the map twice due to it not properly installing. Now my shipment has been lost in the system somewhere.

This has to be one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had. (Original order on April 9 and still no map update.)

When I ordered my map update, I got a note from Fedex a few days later saying the shipping label had been created. Nothing more for several days, so I called the customer service line. They promiised to investigate and call me back. Never called. Then the package arrived. I checked Fedex after receiving the package and it still just showed "electronic shipping info received."

Customer service, indeed!

My map update just magically appeared today. The tracking page still shows no information.

The map (third try) actually installed with no errors this time. I also verified that the major interstate extension that was missing on the original map (but was around form 12-18 months before I bought the car) is now on the map.

The update still does not show speed limits for normal streets (as opposed to major highways/freeways).

Re: GPS map updates

Sun Feb 23, 2014 9:57 pm

My was is driving the newer 2012 Leaf and she kept complaining that the GPS in the car cannot find addresses in old neighborhoods. I tried the address below in both Leafs and the 2011 found the address the newer one did not. I am not sure if there is something wrong with the map in the 2012. Before I try some troubleshooting (reboot?), can anybody with a 2012 try to enter the address below and see if it works? The region needs to be at US2.
