    After the May 7, 2010 map is loaded on a Windows Mobile device what will the version numbers on the device be?

    Hi Frank,

    The version number should not change after downloading the new Q1 2010 map data. The latest Windows Mobile version is 8.0.0.644.

    You can check your version under MENU> Settings> About CoPilot.

    Let me know if you need any additional help.

    Thanks,
    Devon

      Sorry, I wasn’t clear and version wasn’t really what I was wondering about. How can I tell if I have the May 7 map loaded?

        Hi Frank,

        From Central if you see it downloaded, extracted and transferred w/o any error messages you should have the updated maps.

        In your CoPilot Live, you can check by going to MENU > Settings > About and look at the version number. You should see 2010.01.

        Does that help?

        Thanks,
        Devon

    Yes, that helps! I wanted to verify because I have had trouble with map updates.
