I just checked the Mapquest web site and it does have Duval but Amelia and Hadley are still missing.

Just got off the phone with Garmin about update (9) and asked them if it showed specific streets in The Villages of Hadley. It did not so the Tech asked me to go to their web site Garmin.com and fill out a map error report. This assists the cartographer in updating the area just in case the planning council failed to do so. At least that's what Garmin told me. So until the Villages of Hadley gets updated I'll be driving around aimlessly. UGH !

Never lost with Full Tank of Gas or Fully Charged Batteries

Mapquest lags Google Maps in showing details of villages near 466A. TomTom might be a better choice.

We purchased our Garmin in January 2008. Will they send me the updates? We purchased in Hemingway and were told by sales rep our address is not in Garmin's database. Are there only certain models that get the updates? Thanks.

Just bought a Garmin Nuvi 360 two weeks ago..........It has all the village updates south of 466 ............paid 259 for it over tiger supplies on the internet.....It is a fabulous machine that directs you by street names and with bluetooth technology that picks up your cell phone in the glove comp. even though its turned off.......you can drive and call your sister sarah while keeping both hands on the wheel........Its great , don't know how I got along without one........Will take you anywhere in the villages........Its worth the price just to get around Orlando...........

The little woman just bought me the Garmin 760 for Dad's Day. I believe it is the top of the Garmin Line.

Costco has it on sale for the next few days at $349. It had an original MSRP of $845 or so.

You can go to the Costco website and order it.

You can go to the Costco website and print out the ad and take it to Circuit City and they should match it less 10%.

I agree the Garmin Nuvi is the best! I never worry about getting lost either because if you do miss your exit (hard to do, but vetman managed it) it recalculates and turns you around to get you back on track. As one that has spent most of her driving life lost, this thing is like a little miracle to me!

I bought a Garmin Nuvi 200W about a month ago. When I was registering it online, it said I was eligible for the '09 update (even only it's only June '08). I downloaded it, took a long time to do, then I installed it (another long time), but it goes the whole way to 466A now and knows all the roundabouts, etc. We're very pleased with it.

Does the 09 Update on Nuvi show Morse and Buena Vista connecting into 466a. The 08 version showed 466a but not these connections. I sent a update request to Garmin requesting this a few months ago.

The '09 update does show Buena Vista and Morse the whole way to 466A.

I just looked up our address in Duval, the streets are labeled incorrectly on Mapquest. Hopefully they'll get the bugs out soon.

Mapquest seems to have Duval but not Amelia or Hadley. If this is true for GArmin I will have to wait to update my software.
