City Navigator version

My BMW Streetpilot 2820 is now running CN AU 2014.2, but my Zumo 660 can only see updates to 2013.4. Shouldný both be the same, latest version? Both have lifetime map updates.
I use MapSource for trip planning, so it's important to have the same maps on everything. Does anyone know what the latest CN AU update number should be? Can't get any useful help from Garmin Support so far as they don't seem to understand my question, or don't want to.

I have 2014.2 on my nuvi, however when I ran the Garmin Lifetime Map Updater application ( I use a Mac but I guess there are Windows equivalents), I wasn't offered it. I used Garmin Express application that told me it existed, downloaded it and then crashed I googled about that and found a link to Google Map Update application downloaded that, got download, updated nuvi fine.

That's funny. Every time I have to do anything with Garmin it turns to shit just like that! But anyway, so you have 2014.2, so why is my Zumo not being offered that version?

What program are you running on your PC/Mac to look for the new version?

I suggest from my reply above you download Garmin Map Update application and give it a try. Yes, Garmin are a bunch of w**kers.

Yeah, I have the latest Express as well as MapUpdater. They both show a re-download of 2013.4! There must be something here I don't get. The funny thing was I called Garmin support and the guy on the other end knew less about Garmin and GPS in general than my wife. He was completely useless as he didn't even seem to understand my question.

Here is the link that I used to get latest Map Updater, you didn't say if you used Mac or PC.

For Mac:- http://download.garmin.com/lmu/GarminMapUpdater.dmg

For PC:-http://download.garmin.com/lmu/GarminMapUpdater.exe
