Hi Guys, does anyone know how long it takes to receive the free NZ mapping updates once you've sent away for them?
I received an email from them in august saying that they are processing my claim and have not heard anything else.

One hopes that the maps will become available to the rest of us by then as well..

What would have been an old promotion drgattaca. As you will see this post is two months old now.

Yeah got it working in the end. I'm a bit ashamed to admit it but it turns out that you need to install the navdesk program that comes on the disc regardless of whether navdesk is already installed on your pc. Glad I figured it out because navman never responded to my email.

It was part of a promotional thing navman did. You have to send away for it then they'll send you the disc with the updated version of navdesk and the maps

I wish the map upgrade for the S-Platinum series didn't cost $150, nearly half the price of a brand new model :S Otherwise I would buy an upgrade.

It does not look like there is a upgrade. Just the full map's..
