    as i said in post number 14, OSM maps can be used as an alternative to garmin maps, about the only difference or things that you wont or can not do with them is post code search and download all the tiles in one go, but apart from that they are good and as a bonus are free.

    I’m back on this again....
    Should I be able to download 2018.2 onto my laptop? As I said, it’s 2018.1 at the moment and Garmin Express tells me there isn’t a download.
    Do I have to have the 660 plugged in and that’s how it knows there’s no update for it yet?

    If the device is shown in Garmin Express it will inform you when a new update is available

    To update maps on your computer, you have to have the device connected. The software reads device's identity before commencing any available downloads, not least to establish if indeed the latest downloads are applicable to the device. If the update is not suitable for your device, you cannot bypass the device and opt to load it just to your computer.

    The latest map updates are for the newer devices. You and your 660 and / or computer will have to wait. Be patient.

    It would appear that 2018.20 is now available for those of us with 'older' sat nav units.....

    Very excited to see what improvements/enrichments the lovely people @ Garmin have got in store for us......

    I was delighted to see 2018.20 load on my Nav IV (G660) the other day. Every thing went smoothly, until I opened up the mapping & found all street level detail had disappeared. Ever wish you hadn't bothered?

    Garmin reckon the older versions of Express have been corrupted (how??) so their answer is to delete the old App & start over - I think a previous post here alluded to this & I read elsewhere of successful outcomes.

    Anyway, that should be fun, something to keep my piss at boiling point during the festive season too.
