    Thanks for identifying that. I was wondering whether I would get any upgrade for free at the first service due to being new but happy i don't need to bother now!

    Hasn't added it to the 10+ units Iv done so far.

    The speed cameras POI is in all units from what Iv found out, its a matter of being able to turn them on, which requires custom programming.

    Any idea what's going-on with the two Feb 2017 cars over in the "speed camera POI" thread, which have these warnings?

    I have no clue but don't really think it would be fair if we are paying for a map upgrade and we don't get the full features.

    I will be complaining if after my upgrade their is no cameras as it is shown to be working in other VF's with th same sat Nav.

    Also is is kind of weird as Rogan Josh had the so called upgrade last year and he had no cameras also??

    Guess it depends by the definition of easy!
    Custom hardware/firmware running from custom developed software. :)

    I wont be providing any flashboxes for it. Theres probably still hundreds of flashes and testing to do still with various other configuration setups between mylinks to ensure everything is compatible.

    Its a configuration change thats required in the older mylinks. It appears the 2017 models have a different configuration setup to the older models. So 2017 models will already have the speedo camera POI enabled from factory.

    Exactly my thoughts, I think 'eventually' it will roll out. Since all Mylinks technically have the ability already.

    That transcript should be taken further up with customer assistant since it indicates that all vehicles should have the camera alerts.

    Roganjosh only updated his to the same versions as my Mar 2016 build car (mine doesn't have the camera POI option). It appears this new update is a later version again.

    I'm after some info from those that have had the new update done, mainly how long did it take for the update without a service? My next service is 6 months away, so I'm thinkin I may save myself more than $50 if it's done this month.

    I've just had an on-line chat with Holden this evening. The bloke I had the conversation with told me the new map update will definitely include speed camera locations and the map is dated Feb 2017. Hopefully I can get mine updated during the first 1000km inspection due in a couple of weeks

    well i had a friendly chat as well which confirmed this as well and they assured me that all dealers had been sent the maps and it might have taken a bit to get out and about etc. they also confirmed that pre-payment isnt needed etc.

    ell i think i got all the updates for for 2013 vf clubsport and maps - no reverse camera gridlines nor any safety camera POI. I hope the maps are up to date lol - and they did pick up a recall that HO and the dealer said had already been done. Images attached - not sure if anyone can make out if these are the latest.

    Finally got the Map up-date. Pretty disappointed driving home as a 60kph zone which has been 60 for at least a year, maybe 2 is still marked as 70kph. I can confirm there are no visual speed / red light camera warnings (as mentioned before, I asked the Dealer about this and he said only the Calais got this and the SSV didn't - in 2014 anyway) in fact so far I can't see any differences to before. Will know more when I drive more later this week. I'll also whack the voice back on to see if the camera warning only comes through by voice.
    Stupid question - how do you get the software versions so I can check? I recon I have got them up before but buggered if I can find it now.

    Oh yer, not sure if anyone else's does this but mine has always required back pedaling then re-entry to the "turns" screen when on route to get the slide bar on the left so you can see turns further ahead - Ahhh still there nothing has changed.

    Hi there

    I've got Holden ho to review and provide a response to my queries above. Similar questions and feel of what you are saying.

    The versions can be found via the configuration option and the via radio settings from memory.

    My queries were escalated, so will post my response asap.

    In the other thread you'll see I have received emails from Holden saying there are two updates.. .one is the map update, the second is a system update. The system update is the one that adds the Camera POIs... simply getting the map updates does not.

    I don't know if this is the same for all year models, but is certainly true for my MY16 that doesn't currently have Camera POIs.
