Yep, they always put some clause in there that gives them a way out.

Still it is much less expensive than paying for it every year.

I called tech support and they had no idea. Their only suggestion was that the 478 didn't have enough internal memory for the new mapset, which is ridiculous.

I kept playing around until I finally stumbled across the solution. If I DESELECTED City Nav on the GPS unit before running the MapUpdater program, then it would allow me to install the whole update without any memory issues, so it must report the GPS as not having enough available memory if the mapset is checked off, which is strange, but apparently true.

Hope this helps someone else who's updating their 478 in the future.

Merry Christmas!
Makes sense as the Updater 'sees' the old files as in use. Once deselcted, the files are freed to be overwritten and plenty of space is available.
