Hi Guys,

I plugged my Maps & More in to my PC today to try and get the Q4/12 map update that is bring discussed on a different thread and was prompted to do a software update from 7.6.1 to 7.10.4

I was super excited as I get a lot of trouble connecting the device to the car but the device not recognising it's docked ( no car info and no radio connection ) which I put down to my home install but I guess it could be a software issue so wondered if this helps.....anyone else have this problem ?

Anyway it won't do the update as it said I didn't have enough space and even after deleting everything on the Navigon drive and SD card it still said not enough space so I'm restoring it now. I'll let you know if that works.

I have a galaxy note 2 and have to disable my phone from playing media files via bluetooth to get my phone to work in handsfree ( this has been discussed on a different thread as well ) but I was disappointed to note that even though my other car ( a Mercedes E Class ) can read my text message, Maps & More can't. Does anyone have any luck with text messages being read on the Maps & More

I've just tried Navigon Fresh, and as usual on a Mac it fails. I'll re-boot onto Windows XP later and try that instead and see what comes up.

I've already updated to the latest map set.

I'm also a Mac user and have to use virtual machines :-(

The actual versions are 7.6.6. to 7.10.25

I've done a full restore to get anything extra off my device and wiped the SD card but still it complains about not enough room

It says it need an extra 39mb but every time delete something it increases the amount of required space inline with the amount of available space and says it still needs the same amount

Rubbish :-(

On the phone to Navigon to see if they can work it out. The Fresh app won't let me do anything but perform the update and that won't complete as there isn't enough room ( even after manually deleting every single file it still says i'm 1.5mb short !!!!!!! )

I did a restore of the device which pushed my software version to 7.6.6 but when that didn't work I recovered my backup and now my device is at 7.6.17

I have no idea whats going LOL

I backed the unit up first on the XP version of my MacPro. Then I tried the software update - no, it can't be done as you need an extra 4.5 MB of space.

I gradually deleted more and more stuff, but always got the message that an extra 4.5 MB was required.

Deleted the lot and the M + M was no longer recognised. Gulp! Luckily, I've been able to restore from the backup, but it does take a long time to do anything.

So, it seems that the update is a complete waste of time until Navigon fix some of the bugs it has in it.

And they need to make sure that Mac users can use their damned Fresh software ASAP.

I got the same result and the man from Navigon said they are aware of it but need the guys i Germany to produce a fix.

What really annoys me is that none of the Fresh software works until the software is updated

Shame as I really love this little PID unit, it does so much so well

They really need to post a warning on their site to say that there is a problem as otherwise they'll be swamped with requests for help from other frustrated owners.

I agree, it's a good unit, but the support from Navigon is very poor for Mac users - you can't pay for anything and the update service doesn't work at all. Garmin used to be the same, and they now own Navigon. Thankfully, Garmin have improved, now they need to sort Navigon out.

I'm keeping my Garmin zumo 500 up-to-date as I bought a Lifetime Maps plan a couple of years ago, and I've always got it just in case.

I just updated my M+M with the 7.10.25 update without any problems. I am, however using a PC running Windows 7. I also have the Q4/2012 maps installed.

thats strange, I assume you didn't get any storage problems ?

Did you have to do anything at all ?
What software version did you from ?

The update was from 7.6.1. I only had the UK map installed on my M+M as I couldn't see the point in keeping all others when I don't travel outside the UK.

The only unusual step was a message after the update had been installed which asked me to plug the M+M unit into my 'brand new car' and turn the ignition on. When I did this, it displayed a message about the type of car it was connected to and rebooted.

Following these steps, I tested the M+M and all appears to be working correctly.

just done update without problem, and i have other apps installed on the m&m

Total internal memory 3634 MB on the M&M unit
size of update 3380 MB
free space available before update 2061 MB
free space available after update 48 MB

as you can see update is quite substantial and leaves me with very little space

Edit Post: I am a Windows 7 user, update took about 2Hrs

I think that the software update also installed the Q4/12 map update for all countries, hence the increase in memory usage.

I re-installed the Q4/12 update and only selected the UK map and the free space went back to 2225MB.

Navigon Fresh is telling me to update, then it looks at my Maps+More and says I need 4mbs more space and to go to My System to delete one of the apps but that just takes me to the update page and that gets into the loop to update and then no space.... then delete ...then update......

you need a usb stick with 4GB.
Copy all data from the navi on the stick.
the navi deduct from usb.
the program navigon fresh start and start the update!
the update aktualiesiert then the usb stick.
navigon fresh finish.
then you müst on the usb stick in folder NAVIGON countries - map and there a map you need not delete the.
Then the vision to make the usb cable and delete ALL folders on the navi!
Copy all data from the last stick on the navi when all data are on it, and connect to navi take up and go and ignition on.

I'm giving this a go.

I tried to remove the Micro-SD card and put it in a separate card reader to speed things up, but this didn't work as the SEAT skin file was in use.

I'm now transferring the data to the Micro-SD card using the M + M and I shall now walk away and do something else as it indicates 25 minutes to copy the 3GB, which is slow compared to the usual transfer speeds from the card reader.

It appears to be working using Windows XP on my MacPro. I'm using a 32GB Micro-SD card, so there's plenty of headroom! I'll find out in another three hours""¦ assuming the damned PC doesn't automatically re-boot itself in the meantime.
