Do my eyes deceive me or is this a new update for 7-11-2019 Version 12.7z
I installed the Europe 1 maps last night. It’s version 11.7z. Feeling as though there is a them and us situation here.
Now that's interesting as when I downloaded the Europe 1 maps this morning the downloaded version is "Discovermedia2_Eu_AS_1430_v12.7z" - which suggests a V12. The version I loaded last week was V11, and strangely when I trie dto check today, it re-loaded V11 (this was before I downloaded the v12.7z file above)
Also on the (last) update I did last Saturday, I now have version
which is ever so slightly different from what your system is showing @brid - like the end letter in the first line. Now - if I look at Discovercare that suggests it was a full update, but the file it used was only 6.5Meg. Hmm.
Did you update yours using Discovercare @brid - if so which "map set" did you have selected in settings. I sed the defualt which came down with Discovercare which was "Europe", but I note you can select Europe1 Gen 2 and a whole host of others.
What I did do this morning was use Discovermedia which at first suggested I had the latest version and then went through suggesting an update - but actually re-loaded what I had updated with last Saturday. I've now downloaded the V12.7z file above, which I'm going to try tomorrow to see if that makes any difference.
I suspect where I downloaded the Discovermedia app last week, when I ran it, it downloaded the latest version of the map updates. It didn't do that this morning, so went straight from backup to installing the map. I didn't have time to try the update again today, as was out this afternoon, but I'm thinking with Discovermedia that you possibly need to download a new version each time (and maybe delete the old version off your system, else it just picks up what it downloaded before. Guess tomorrow I'll find out.
Damn confusing though - why can't they just display version numbers both on the VW site and on your screen as it would be SO much easier to understand and check for crying out loud!
