    Thanks for time spent on this. I guess we can chalk it up to blue moon. My adventure down under begins in 2 weeks. Let's hope that's last of problem I've seen. Come to think of it, can't even complain to Garmin, can I? Never understood why they don't sell complete maps for other areas, rather than just the image.

    I've read [and believe] that Garmin make good money from devices but don't usually make a lot of money from map sales, which explains why all but the base leader-line onroad units are sold with Lifetime Maps.

    So, I suspect that it's simply that they hope you'll buy another 'localized' unit when you get to your destination. A flawed marketing plan if you like, because it p*sses off the advanced uses such as yourself who want to have all the bells'n'whisltles on your premium unit when you're away on hols. Generally you can buy an OEM LM on a mid-range AU local unit for not much more [or much less for say 42 or 52] than a One Time map only [no extras] to put on an off-shore unit, and so that's probably one area of map sales which does make them good profit! So they get you either way, unless you are p*ssed off enough to buy a TT instead.

    Glad you are sorted and i'm sure you'll enjoy your trip down-under as much as i've always enjoyed my times in NA. If you haven't been here before you'll find that aussies are pretty-much just like yanks and cunucks who talk funny as i've found vicky-verka over there. Even the Big Macs and Whoppers taste the same, but Burger King is Hungry Jacks over here, lol.
    OT off ....

    Ok, just in case I over read something, but the ASR files for 37xx were not posted?

    Sorry Tom, but i don't think there are any ASR1 files yet for this 2014.20 Navteq map. We've had the same problem with some previous Navteq versions since early last year, no ASR1 files but curiously G2S are usually available so someone must have LM Navteq on a junior model using G2S. You can get ASR1 with Sensis though. This situation is the exact reverse of what i told crab-boy in Post #27 in answer to his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. All 3790 were sold with Sensis loaded as OEM afaik including all the LMs. Maybe someone has Navteq as an 'after market LM' purchased separately for an originally non-LM 3790 and that's why the files show up sometimes. Possible solution to get ASR functioning with Navteq map: convert it to 3490?

    EDIT: Forget all the above malarkey, cos i've found the 3790/2460 ASR1 files for Navteq 2014.20:
    Spoiler: click
