Did a bit of a Google on it and some people are claiming they're on v2.25. I did the postcode/map update in 2016 and that put me on v2.24. Will see what pops up

Hi, OPC Chester have offered me the PCM 3 2016 update for £335, just FYI, undecided on whether to do it myself, am going to check my map version later ....
Does anyone know if the overall graphics will be improved from the original 2008 version ?

Cheers

I done the 2016 update - I think it took 30min all in. Pretty easy to do and the discs cost me £20.

Graphics are the same - Cant remember what features the 2008 map had but the 2016 adds POI - Traffic etc.

OP has a 997.2. Never heard of anyone updating that or any PCM3 at home.

The last time mine had an update was a few years back on a deal (£149 IIRC). If they offered that again around the time that it next needs a stamp I would go for it, but at the number that you have been quoted then I'll skip it and continue to get by with it as is personally.

I don’t think it’s worth it at £149. It still lacked road changes that TomTom etc had had for years.

Think I used my satnav once. Ran it against google maps nav. Google said I would get there 11.23. Satnav? 10.30. Guess which one was right.........

Put in a new head unit, I only ever use Waze or google maps (use the same data). Nothing else gets close for useability or getting me somewhere the best way.....

being able to say "OK Google" "Navigate Home" and so on just makes any PCM look so old fashioned......
