Default Map update painfully slow

Evening all,

Just bought a 308 GT on a 66 plate. Updated the maps this evening, but had to sit in the car for an hour with the engine running while I deleted old map data and the new maps uploaded. Iíd like to work out what Iíve done wrong for future reference.

Downloaded the navigation update from the Peugeot site, unzipped to memory stick etc. Tried to follow their instructions but it didnít auto run or function as per the text. Had the instructions kindly provided on this forum and it didnít follow that method either.

I didnít seem to have the option to update the maps, only upload them, so had to delete all regions one by one. Then uploading new maps took ages. About 8 mins per region.

Maybe I should have updated firmware first?

Now I know how long it takes to update, Iíd never do the whole map set again. UK only from now on as youíve done.

Now to check firmware level.....

I would say it takes longer than a hour if you're doing all the countries. I always do my updates when I'm taking the car for a long drive.

That would have been the more time efficient way of doing things, but also quite distracting, especially for the first go at it.

It did take about an hour for me also, partly because of my learning curve and Iím sure I went about illogically after the auto update failed to run.
