Contact Wibbles, he should be able to help you.
You can do it yourself too if you have some extra time, doesn't take too long. Just have to acquire the nav map update files

I might buy the connected drive offer on the site its £100 it includes the map updates. Anyone else brought it and think its worth it?

you might want to check with Connecteddrive people first, as my original subscription runs out March 2019 but still stuck on maps 2018-1!

Original EntryNav (not EntryNav2 Evo) up to 2018 is only one stuck on 2018-1 as far as I am aware. I also have this problem with a subscription that expires in May.

Yeah the map updates is the same price for me. But was thinking for another £50 is it worth the extra for the connected drive?

Mine was stuck on a 2017 map, so I used the map update tool via USB from connected drive portal. Now on 2018-4

I’d contact the help desk just for clarification.

might do but it probably takes them 2 weeks to respond and that's when my subscription runs out :roll: but no harm in asking

I suspect it’s because Entrynav2 has been released in 2018 and uses different maps so those with Entrynav1 business nav are still on 2018-1 waiting for an update.i think they are focusing more on the newer Entrynav2 maps although my dealer told me they were merging 2018-2 into 2019-1 due to ‘technical problems’.
