Navigation Map Update 21.5

Post by luckypants » Mon Jun 21, 2021 11:31 am

Hi all

I understand the latest navigation software is version 21.5. I also believe that after system software version 2.1 the map updates should be automatically downloaded via an over the air update direct to the car. I have 2.1 software update in my car but my map version is stuck on 20.7, even though 21.5 has been out for two months.
  • Has anyone had map version 21.5 downloaded to their car?
  • If it did download, did you need to do anything to make it happen?
  • Has anyone had any OTA updates yet?

21.5 is the latest I believe, my car is in the workshop today so I can't check mine to confirm what it has.

As far as I'm aware you can't do anything to initiate an OTA update if it's not offered to you by the car.

(I use Apple Maps via CarPlay rather than the in-car nav in any case)

Sorry folks, I did not double check my notes. It is 21.5 version of the map that has not arrived via OTA. Opening post is now edited to show correct version. Sorry for the confusion.

So fire away please, anyone had map version 21.5 downloaded by OTA?

Yes. I have had 21.5 for at least a week.

For me, I am unable to identify any improvement in data accuracy.

I did nothing, hence me saying “at least a week” :D

My Family Pro Performance, (3 weeks old) arrived with 2.1 software (2092) installed & 20.7 map version, now on 21.5 map version with out any input by me or any communication from the car informing me of the change, happened about 7 days ago
I assume.

Thinks it is a Apple issue I’m on 14.7 beta, I think it was fine a couple of weeks ago. Just have to wait for them to fix it

Just work out if you switch interior lighting settings from dark to bright apple maps go to daylight. Haven’t tried yet what happens after dark though
