Has anyone in the UK updated their maps to the 2021 version?
Do you wonder if the postal codes work (since that is what most people from the UK wonder)? If that was the case - yes they work.

Tried it myself.

SA11 3BU - Neath, UK. It calculated the route from Croatia.

My SatNav is NG4 (2013 MK2), the latest firmware update, and the latest unofficial maps (2021-1). All available in the first post of the thread.

Yes I have thanks to NF7 and his links. I can confirm that the 2021 NG4 maps update do accept the full UK postcodes. The update also includes new traffic Speed/Traffic Light/ and Bus Lane camera locations with the warnings on approaching them. The only issue is that the Sat Nav does not provide dynamic traffic information. Just use Android Auto/ Apple Car Play for that but as far as navigation is concerned its a huge update from the old 2016 maps and software.

Guy on ebay gives detailed instructions on how to do the whole process sells the updated genuine Citroen Peugeot 2021 latest maps & speed camera radars it took about 1hr from loading the files onto a USB to uploading them into the car but you have to install radar 1st then maps after otherwise the firmware in the car won't read the data for some reason now I get an audible warning & a camera icon on the RT6 system screen :)

On the NG4, you have to install speed cameras after the maps, otherwise, its POI data is overwritten. The difference between RT6 and NG4 is that unfortunately, NG4 support ended in 2016, so no genuine maps after that date. Only unofficial ones with official 2016 POI.

gps-discountuk £19.99 as for getting them free some have been known to cause issues with the cars firmware
I have updated to 2016 and then on to 2021 (thanks to NF7) both updates were Free and both caused no issues at all. The Paid ones from my friend who had a 308 (disks and memory sticks) were a nightmare and he paid £30!

Well I had fun doing nothing!

I downloaded and followed every instruction, I already had the latest firmware, and followed the step by step, error instantly on inserting memory card, and upon reboot of system. Tried on USB Too no good. Trying again tomorrow using my other pc incase I missed something. But first time round a total no go, car just wasn't interested haha!

Although while I'm sorting this I've just updated every lamp to LED with cooling and driver coils to pure / cool white 6500k. All now running sweet with no errors! Internal and external! New rcz projection lights on doors too and fitted a hidden echo auto.

So hopefully over the weekend I'll work out the sat nav!

Meanwhile here's a pic of the vehicle so far!

Make sure you do the full format (FAT32, max size of the USB 32GB) just before you copy the files onto the USB stick. Mine would not accept the files if it wasn't a full format. Another car did not even require a quick format. Just swapping files easily. It seems those NG4 units have a bit of a mind of their own.

There is a lot of fake software floating around at present I had no issues when I did mine in fact I was amazed how quick the upload took from start to finish

Its probably error with the speed camera information. I’ll upload the latest November speedcams shortly.
