    Ha, dropping it off the hoist should buff out :rolleyes: And the wheel alignment as part of the rack replacement will make it run straight again o_O So no problems ;)

    But it's true you'll save by going 3rd party service :cool:

    Well, got my first service today and as part of that process had the maps updated. Now i have 84160883 Version 30.12.10.11 which is the same as that from Feb 2018 or there abouts.

    Prior to the map update, i asked, and HCC stated there were no map updates coming. The dealer also stated that in his experiance maps get released every two. So i guess i'll find out soon enough if i was told porkie pies if/when Holden rolls out 2019 map updates in a month or so.

    I got told by HCC that there would be a map upgrade in March 2019. I even doubled checked that the lady did say 2019, not 2020.

    Who bl**dy knows...

    Did you have to pay for your update?

    No, 1st paid service was on Holden's dime due to the rocker recall. Map updates were also on Holden's dime due to new car having what amounted to 3 year old maps. They called both a guesture of good will, i called it Holden meeting their ACL obligations, so potaitow potuto, but free ;)

    Which dealer did this for you? I asked Customer care and they referred me to Holden dealer. Holden dealer wants $$ to update. BUT my Calais got a free map at the end of 2016 so figure that one out.

    Sorry, I should have been a little clearer. It was all handled by me through Holden Customer Care who emailed me some authorisations numbers. Then I booked the service through the dealer and gave them the HCC papaerwork on the day.

    Seems HCC are just simply fobbing you off to the dealer for a commercial map purchase. If you feel that the maps in your car were outdated when you bought it, then you should phrase the discussion with HCC around your ACL stat warranty rights since the Nav system may not be fit for purpose (if it can’t find the addresses you enter, or speed zones in your area are wrong, etc.).

    I know this thread is probably full of excellent info but I'm just too lazy to go through it all to find what I'm after when my question is a very simple one.

    Does the new SatNav update include points of interest like fixed speed cameras?

    Cheers

    ^ It depends on what vehicle model you have and whether Holden has seen fit to allow speed camera warnings for your model.

    It’s in the tread somewhere but I can’t be bothered to look it up :p and memory isn’t what it used to be o_O

    Thanks for your effort.

    My vehicle model is as per my profile, a VF2 SS and touche on the can’t be bothered comment I guess I deserved that even though there is a lot of info to sieve through, now if members stopped asking the same old questions this section of the forum would be almost dead. :)

    Thanks for that, I'll have to return to the dealer as mine don't show in MyLink.

    Mine is Oct 2016 VF II and I had to ask for an update to get the alerts. Someone recently posted the new software versions in the thread mentioned above, you should then be able to look at your software version and compare. I posted my software version in the thread at one point so you could also search for that.

    Nah, you don't deserve a smakdown and it wasn't intended that way. It was simply a tongue in cheek comment for a little fun.

    I was intending to check if i had some references to builds/versions, etc once i got home but it sounds like Phil/dgp answered your query ;) so all's good :cool:

    I need to look into this as well.

    I paid for my satnav to be updated last year and it doesn't show cameras.

    You might have to update Firmware as well as Nav update, does your reverse camera bend when you back up and turn the wheel?

    Had flashes of a camera that can look left and right as the wheel is turned when I read your comment. Obviously I did understand you mean the guide lines turn with the steering wheel but thanks for the giggle on this rather hot day.
