Hi, can the PSM 3 on my 2010 car be updated to 2017 road maps, because after the mother of all rows with the missus and getting lost, I'm thinking of just getting a new Garmin !! Confused

The last time that I checked the most up to date maps for the 997 were over 2 years old, so even if you have the most recent release they are still out of date.

I had mine updated a few months ago (2.24 with latest maps), and have done 8K miles since without any missing roads or errors.

I would love to have my 2009 car updated but I just can't justify the cost over a good portable SatNav.

They must be able to carry out the upgrade for less than the £180 I have been quoted by Leeds OPC


Up to £100 and I'd be OK

I had to do it as I wanted to connect my iPhone and the old version in my car would not do it. I paid £160 @ Portsmouth OPC, and they give you a nice Cayman for the day whilst they do it.

Just seems OTT to update a mapbase and some firmware

2.24 is getting on a bit, as I had that installed on my old car in Jan 2014, and it was showing gaps not long after.

Doesn't PCM 3.1 also give you 7 digit postcodes? Could be worth the upgrade cost just for that.

Use your phone, assuming you have a smartphone. I use Google or Waze when in this country, and when offline something like Navmii which uses downloaded maps and works perfectly offline (well it has in France and Majorca!). By a screen clip thingy for your phone from ebay, and don't spend anything on a garmin! Nothing beats Waze and google nav. Even when I had my PCM2.1 still, I never used the nav as it was useless and didn't know about traffic.....

The Sat-Nav gets you close with the 7 digit postcode update but the number of times i've apparently 'reached my destination' only for me to have to get my phone out to use google maps and discover i'm about 1/2 a mile away from where i wanted to be!

I don't even bother try and use it these days!

So last week I spent a few £'s with OPC with: sport & sports plus, PSE etc etc... and one of the Tequipment items I bought was the PCM 3 map update. It's so much better, as in 100's of times better. Like most owners I lost my absolute temper with it and it's been called all the swear words under the sun. If it wasn't £2.5k I could have been physical.
Is it better, yes, mint, seven digit postcode.
Are the maps different, yes, lots more information.
Is it worth it, yes and no. Yes, because it's now simple and user friendly. No, well it is expensive compared to nipping down Halfords and spending 1/4 of the £ price.
Fors & against, well it's neat , you don't have to take it in and out and no suction ring marks.
So all in all it gets the nod from me.

If it wasn't, I'd say stick your money in the Halfords cash till.

Unless you're thinking of selling the car soon, then obviously you'd be mad or very wealthy.

MNC911, do you know what firmware level and maps (year) you went up to?

I'm on firmware 2.24 and maps 2015, wondering if there is a 2017 version Software bundle out yet?

I was informed the maps were last year 2016.

I haven't had chance to have a play with it yet. I've drove it to Stockport using the Satnav yesterday. It was fab to put in the 7 digit postcode and drive. That version for the 997.2 was cr@p, even I used a TomTom Satnav. I just gave up using it because trying to input a destination was a exam test.

It was updated last week so which ever version it is, is the latest one. As OPC had to get some sort of code from Germany to be able to conduct the update. Which I thought was a gobbledygook, but it turns out that it's true, a code of some sort against the vehicle info has to be obtained. Crazy Germans!!!

Would you be able to confirm which version was used? If it is 2016, I may be tempted to have it done before this year's Euro trip.

(as said 2.24 gives you 7 digit postcodes)

I don't believe our Gen2 cars can go beyond PCM3.0?

Shames as I think the 991 PCM3.1 cars get BT streaming etc...?
