I received an email from TVNAV (Kansas) that they have already received some copies of this update. I checked the Garmin map viewer and it is not even listed yet.
I'll pursue it with GPS City and GPS Central in Calgary next week.

Terry,

When you're talking to the folks at GPS Central can you quiz them about whether they've heard anything more on an update to Metroguide Canada?

I am having difficulty obtaining information as to when I can get a copy of this in Canada. GPS Central says it may ship later this year. GPS City had some but now says May 15.

I talked to Garmin and confirmed it was available as a free update for the Mobile PC software. They said availability is 4-6 weeks and it should be on the on-line viewer by the end of April.

They did not have any further detail on Metroguide Canada. I believe they will not update that product.

I guess I will leave this until mid May.

Thanks Terry,

I'm pursuing Product Support right now to see if I can get the final word on Metroguide Canada. I had word from Cartography as recently as late February that they thought it was still going to happen "sometime" but nothing on a firm development cycle. So I emailed Product Support a few days ago to see what they knew. They said Metroguide Canada is dead.

So I asked them why Cartography still thought it might happen and forwarded the emails from Cartography from last April and the most recent one from February. That confused them so they're checking with whoever has control of the product decision-making to get the final word.

I suspect, as you do, that it's probably dead. But as long as they don't do something about the crappy Canadian coverage in the Navteq-based stuff I'm going to keep at them. If they tell me that MG Canada is definitely dead, my next step will be to use DeLorme's Street Atlas as a comparison to try and shame them into getting City Navigator at least up to that level of quality.

Ken,
I'm still pinning my hopes on 2009. There must be some reason they are releasing a new version so soon. Maybe its because of persistant people like you
