Well a lot of us will be waiting for Sir @TazzI
The series 2 had the railway and school zones which have to be turned on in settings under driver/user alerts. The MY 17 version had the camera locations. My MY14 Calais V was one of the first cars to have the Map updates (version before 2017 map) did not have the user alerts at all. The head unit must of had many changes throughout the VF car life. I know there are heaps of radio revisions in EPC over the years.
All VF2 can do camera locations, but if I remember correctly the maps or firmware the earlier ones were shipped with didn’t allow it to be used. The latest software & maps will enable the cameras on any VF2.
My VF2 doesn't have camera locations. When I enquired at 2 dealers in late 2017, the first said there is a firmware update available. They tried several times to apply supposed update but failed. 2nd dealer said there was no update available for my vehicle. When I called HCC I was also told there is no update available. Totally confusing!
What do you think? Version 17 stand for 2017 or version 17 means something else
Actually I think you are correct. Originally they could only show railway and school locations but with the 2017 map update, they can also show the speed cameras once you select the camera locations in user preferences.
Which year is your vehicle? MY?
... wrong post
MY16 first registered 2017.
I had a map update done in May 2017 but was told that camera locations come from a firmware update but so far no dealer has been able to give me any correct advice on that
Some time ago, I copied the explanation below from a previous post by one of our members. My apologies to him as I didn't record his name or the thread.
"MyLink Update Process Explained
There’s lots of confusion when it comes to updates.
To break it down for everyone, there are three types of updates:
1) Main Firmware USB Update - This is the Mylink firmware/operating system (It runs the show.. just like windows)
2) Configuration Updates - This is done through flashing (Not the stripper kind..), I did a quick demo of this a page or so back turning on the POI in a 2014 mylink
3) Navigation Updates - This is done through USB but only does the maps.
Once the maps have been updated, it should show 84019565, version 30.11.0F.11
Option 1 and 2 do not cost the Holden dealership anything to use. So when they say you get a 'free update during service', this is probably the configuration update only, or if they are nice enough, also the main firmware update (Which takes AGES).
Option 3, does actually cost the dealership money and time. They have to pay for the maps in advance, using your VIN as the license, which is why they ask for it prior to coming in. Then have to wait between 1-3 days for the required license to be generated and sent through to the dealership for use.
Due to the number of people that bail on a service/update, a lot of dealerships request payment upfront for maps, otherwise they pay for a maps update which never gets used."
Got the Money out of me in ADVANCE and NOW they cant do it!.
I have posted the below on another thread this morning but I will post it here now in the correct thread.
I rang up the Holden Dealer this morning and they told me there is no updated MAPS for the Caprice V (2013 MY14) after the Dealer requested them from Holden itself. Also she said I have the Latest that is available for my car. Now I dont understand this since our local Subdivision where we live has been there for 7 years and the 2015 VF SV6 Storm has it after I had the Maps updated 3 years ago. So what the Holden dealer is Telling me that the latest maps are not available even the maps for 2015 (the VF Storm has the new 7 year old subdivision) for the Caprice V. Something does not add up here
Welcome to the world of designed obsolescence and Holden not giving a ****
But, if you paid for a map update and it couldn’t be delivered, then you must get your money back in full.
luckily ACL not only affords protection for the products we buy but the statutory warranty provisions also includes services which must be delivered in a professional manner..... that in essence could mean some Holden dealers shouldn’t trade
This could be another classic Holden bungle up. I has a similar experience while trying to install sports steering wheel on my Calais. The dealer apparently tried but even their lead tech “failed” to enable it. This is with the parts department confirming that the sports steering wheel (with paddles) are on the official accessories list for my car
The Calais I own is also a MY16 vehicle. And I have speed camera alert option enabled on mine. Most Holden dealers are a bunch of incompetent idiots. Holden reps are not different either.
I just got it back 30 min ago. Well she said it was credited back into my bank but wont know until tomorrow when I will log on to my account.
I will wait until this Covid-19 shi.t is over and if I'm still alive I will contact other dealers to see if they can get the Map update for a Caprice V My 14.
The Maps in the car I think they are OLD as they do not show the new Subdivision which is 7 years old yet the 2015 SV6 Storm show it after I update it from New for the First time 3 years ago.
The 2013 MY14 Caprice V Shows = 22802346 Version 30.0E.0C.33
23164647 Version 30.5F.06.20
It's worse than Holden being retired.
This is the reason why I wanted to do all now and not leave it later in the year when Holden shuts there doors forever.
Now we have the Convid-19 to worry about and when this goes away which I dont think so this year Holden will be GONE!!
Does anyone know the Years and the Months since the VF was introduced where there was the MAP Update. Now the VF was introduced in June or July 2013 so that was original maps so what year and months was the next map update, and the next, and the next, and the last.
When they updated my maps 1 1/2 years ago, it didn't take the first time and had to go back, mine has the speed camera locations, railways and school zones, and the firmware update gave me movable guidelines.
