Garmin Map update

I noticed that
City Navigator® North America NT 2009.1 Map Update
was available free until Feb something for my Garmin 2820 I recently purchased at getfeetwet.
My 2820 came with NT2009. I'm downloading it now, I know I should have just said sent me the disk, because its 1.9GB download.
Anybody try this yet?

19GB is more than one disk. About 4 and a half DVDs. You sure the download is 19GB?

Re: Garmin Map update

I received my Map Update 2009 and it will not let me update my GPS. It keeps giving me an error, "GPS not eligible for update because previous map version is not loaded". I just got the 2820 in Dec08 and it has the 09 map version. I registered my unit and it said I was eligilbe for the free update and it let me order the free update for $10 shipping. Was wondering if anyone else ordered the free update and had problems with install???

Thanks

Randal
if your update disk has the same maps as your unit, it wont update.
The updated maps must be newer than the maps installed in the unit, or it simply wont work. so maybe they are the same?

Re: Garmin Map update

FYI on this.

Spoke with a Garmin rep, here's the deal. The update DVD is listed as version 2009.1 when in fact it is 2009 (no change so no update and the reason it wouldn't update). The updated map version 2009.1 is availalbe but only as the download. I have to send my DVD back to Garmin so they can work their magic and make the update download available to me. Once I ordered the listed update DVD it locked me from getting another update, so... have to wait a few more days.
