Hi,

I'd like to know how often Trailsforks maps fo Garmin devices are updated. As far as I know, last version is 2019.20, and I read somewhere that 2020.10 version is being currently launched in some countries. During the lockout a heavy update of trails was done in my zone and in many other zones in Spain. I was wondering if when 2020.10 comes it will include all that new material or not.

I noticed there's a chance to buy maps with Karma points (https://www.trailforks.com/tools/garminmaps/). Do these maps include the latests trails uploaded to TF?

Thanks in advance

Regards

We don't really control when Garmin updates their Basemap, we give them data 3 times a year.

As for our own custom basemaps, they also don't update often, 1-2 times a year. On the https://www.trailforks.com/tools/garminmaps/ you can hover over the MB download size and see the last updated date. 2020-03

Thanks for the answer Canadaka. I'm afraid that we uploaded all the trails later than March, so I'll have to wait for the next update.

Thanks for the tip on how to know the updated date on the maps, good to know.

Regards

I've got an Edge 530 which is supposed to have worldwide trail data baked in but it doesn't appear to have any China/Hong Kong data. Any ideas? My trailforks data is 2020-10.

We are in the process of sending Garmin a new trail data update. So I'm sure the Garmin maps will be updated next month.

We sent Garmin new world-wide data a few weeks ago, so should be coming soon.

Thanks canadaka.

Actually I found a new version of maps for Spain, dated this month, which is pretty updated.

https://www.trailforks.com/tools/garminmaps/

I downloaded this version, but I'm facing problems at sending this map to my Edge 530. I tried to copy both the full .img map and the trailsonly version in my gps, but I couldn't see those maps in the gps while navigating.

Any tip?

Thanks in advance

I'll answer myself... the problem was that I didn't delete previous versions of the map. Now I only left the most recent "trailsonly" version and I can find it in the configuration of the maps in the GPS.

I hope this helps anybody else...
