    Default Kenwood 7210BT Map update 2016

    Anyone know how to update the maps on this device? I am just going round in circles and not coming to a full conclusion. Basically I have downloaded the CiTy Nav NT Europe 2016.20 then created a folder 'garmin' all in small letters. I have the following in the garmin folder
    -ASR
    -G2S
    -JCV
    -SQLite
    -GarminDevice
    -gmapsupp.gma
    -gmapsupp.unl
    -gmapsupp.img

    when I plug USB into unit and go to Maps, settings, about and then click UPDATE, all its does is write to USB the device info. I am expecting it to start updating the unit. So where am I going wrong? I am sorry if this a repetition of the question

    I take it the SD card has to stay in the unit at all times? Ideally I would like to install in the device memory like the original map. I have updated the software for the unit. I will download the 2017.10 map. When was this one released? I get confused with the versions of these maps. xxxx.10 xxxx.20, what is the difference between the 10 and 20 etc?

    The versions of Garmin maps (xxxx.xx) xxxx.10; xxxx.20 and xxxx.30

    xxxx = years
    .xx = version of release
    so .10 = first version from the years; .20 = The second version from the years; .30 = the third version from the years

    I figured the years part, what I didn't get was the 10, 20 etc. Thanks for clarifying it, it now makes sense
