Route 66 map update

Hi I have bought a Trumpion gr1 sat nav which runs Route66 map software. the map requires updating appereantly you can go onto their website and download it but I have tried 5 times and can't find it anywhere... trumpion claim it costs £15.00 for the update but it seems to be well hidden! any help or advice would be most welcome or a link to the download..... their maps are well out of date even although this unit is 3 days pld the maps are about 18 months out of date!

    Hi thanks for trying to help, The trumpion gr1 does not come with a instalation CD of any kind.The software is all stored on the 2gb chip I assume. unless it is pre loaded in the device itself, but that is unlikely. I have tried again a few times looking for an update download I just can't find one !! I would not recommend a trumpion to anyone as you are even unable to contact them on their web site it comes back with a 'runtime server error' message!! phew ! I think I will just buy a tom tom! they auto update and are more user friendly and less complicated.

    I have the same problem. Yesterday, my Trumpion gave me a few bum stears, decided it was time to update the maps. Tried their website but there's nothing there. Tried sending an email but got the same runtime error. HELP!

Until quite recently there was a 1.3GB download available.
However, this was just a zipped copy of the original software that is supplied by the units (which you should have on DVD).
Trumpion have now removed this download from their website.
As far as I’m aware there are currently no map updates available for download, but perhaps when the online shop is up and running they will be available.

Hard reset on Route66 mini

Try updating your Route66 with the latest edition of the PND software from the R66 support website - - This will reset the sat nav to how it was when it left the factory but you will loose your favourites and history in the process. See the website for more details.
