Updating the maps on my garmin
This is well near a brilliant plan for owners of Garmin GPS's.
As this may not be compatible due to increased data file size.
I am used to download 2000 mb files in a few minutes so plz no doubts about non-garmin stuff. At first, the Garmin Express software stated it would about 2 hours and 10 minutes to do the map update. I've updated the maps at several different locations, usually public libraries.
Then, instantly it changed the estimate to over 6 hours and the minutes kept increasing every two seconds. Because I have Cable, there are absolutely no excuses as to why having such a long estimate. From what I can see the 3 GB download from the servers is okay, it's the hideously slow process of ramming that multi-GB data set through what is likely a usb 1.1 interface. It's taken anywhere from 3 to 6 hours depending on the location where I'm doing the update.
