    My Mapshare corrections ( after a new map )

    Hi All,

    ( apologies if forum incorrect )

    I have made a lot of personal map corrections to my v8.65 map, thus helping the routing for and avoiding narrow lanes etc...

    I was thinking, will all these be in vain when I upgrade to a new v8.70 map? - Will they carry over?

    Is there a simple file I can move from one map to another to save my own MapShare corrections?
    Will the file only be compatilble with the same map, i.e going from Europe v8.65 to Europe v8.70, or can it also go to say UK_IE v8.70??

    Hope that makes sense.

    Thanks

    Hunky

    I wasnt aware that the MapSetting.cfg file carried this info?, thought it was more for POI setup/Home Address / recent destinations type info.

    Would it not be more of something like MapUserPatch.dat ?

    Thanks

    That seems to have worked ok, I did some more corrections in E v865, and moved that file to wce & we v8.65, and they were carried across.

    I also tried a UK_IE roll back map, made some corrects and carried them forward and all ok!

    Thanks

    I guess the next question would be, will they carry over to another device like if you wanted to share them, as they may only be device specific?
