Chet's Corner: City Nav 2008 map updates are Mac compatible!

1 August 2007 @ 11:20 AM  / Apple-Mac / Automotive Blog /


Today's post has one sole purpose, to bring attention to the fact that our City Navigator 2008 Mapping Updates are Mac compatible. This means you can update the maps on the device, straight from your Mac, Intel or not. It's just another step in our quest to be fully Mac compatible.

It's actually about as simple as it gets. Here is a walk through of the process:

First, insert the DVD into the Mac and run the Map Update program. You will see a welcome screen:
