Navigon??

Post by UK Bloke »

Hi
I see there's a new update for the XT which adds 'Navigon' as a new release, any idea what this adds to the device?

From Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navigon
(…) Navigon's products included Navigon branded personal navigation devices as well as OEM software for the navigation, wireless, and automotive sectors. Navigon had offices in Asia, Europe, and North America, and employed more than 400 people.[3] Navigon AG was purchased and fully acquired by Garmin Ltd. in July 2011.[4] On December 1, 2020, Garmin has announced the discontinuation of Navigon products and customer service.

So probably you’re right, it’s just new map theme.

No, a theme is just 1kb, and this is 1.27 mb, and a kind of firmwareupdate.

Hmmm, interesting - nothing like this here in Austria for Zumo XT (6.30), just a Cyclops-Update and a icelandic keyboard...
