    Yes, I understand it's for India localised units. But your reference to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] means ... what exactly?

    Quite easy to get confused by Garmin's apparent ad hoc use of the terms: 'Junction View', 'Lane Assist' (sometimes 'Lane Info'), and Junction View with Lane Assist'. My (maybe incorrect) understanding of these terms is this: the first has Junction Views pics only, the second is usually obtained from LA info embedded in most CNs, and the third has JV & LA info in the *.jcv file so that when that file is used with a CN without 'premium content' will show both the junction views and the lane assist multiple arrows. Perhaps Caty or someone can either debunk or confirm this theory?
    Yes, for most countries LA is included in the map sold separately. But for India it is available only in the map sold with the India units and with the map update for the India units. Maybe they need to keep at least 2 premium features exclusive for regional units, and India has no 3d!

    I'd tried the JCV with the 2012.20 image and it enables only Junction view, not LA as seen here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] . What is curious is that though actual Lane Assist which shows up in the top left is missing, with current lane guidance enabled in Garmin IOS software, it shows up very infrequently at the bottom as shown in the image (I'd captured the image at such a rare moment). Which is why I think that Lane Assist information is embedded in the map sold separately also, it is somehow just disabled. I wish I had an image sold with the unit, so that I could make a bytewise comparison and check if it's just some sort of flag byte in the file.

    I have been regularly updating Garmin maps from 2009 through this forum, till the Garmin 2011.40 version. Each version definitely used to be better than the earlier one - except the 2011.40 version. I personally found the 2011.30 version to be better - the routes as I tried out in Mumbai and Maharashtra was definitely better in 2011.30 - possibly because some of the existing road characteristics in 2011.40 were changed, thus changing the route priority. Anyone had similar experience? I plan to try out this latest version 2012.30 - anyone with similar experience as mine in 2011.40 version who can confirm that this is definitely better? (I hope I have not missed reading any post that answers my query already :-) )

    I've found that routes depend on the software as well as the map. Mobile PC, Mobile XT and Garmin on IOS give me different routes with the same map image in some cases, with the XT one providing the best routes, followed by Mobile PC and then Garmin IOS. On Mobile PC, I've actually seen progressively better routing with each map iteration.

    In the present 2012.30, an improvement is that on highways, even without LA, it does say to keep right for the flyovers, whereas with the previous image it just showed the distance till the exit from the highway, which would leave drivers unfamiliar with the highway confused as to whether to take a flyover or not.

    But I think that 2012.40 might be released quite soon as they've made a mess of naming various portions of the highway and other roads. For example a large portion of the Western Express highway in Mumbai is now called Ali Yawar Jung Marg (which the Garmin lady amusingly pronounces Marginal), while it is actually just a junction near Bandra. And this is not just an isolated case. I think that in redefining the junctions, so as to provide guidance for flyovers, they've unwittingly renamed entire portions of the highways and other roads after junction names.

    Edit: Search is much faster with 2012.30
