Next Map Update : Version 2.31?

#1 Post by adilothman » Wed Nov 12, 2008 11:20 am

Some may wonder when the next map update will come. So here's our very cryptic answer.

We wish we could tell you more now but suffice to say that to a certain extent, we are sidelining 2.31 for now to focus on a higher mission. A paradigm shift even. Phase 1 will bear fruit within these few weeks and when Phase 2 comes - i believe all hell will break loose (in a positive way). We hope to bridge the gap between Phase 1 and 2 although realistically we'd think early January 2009 as a more realistic target.

Everything changes in Phase 2. And i mean E V E R Y T H I N G. And it will be another landmark event like no other. Exciting times are ahead. Oh, one thing that won't change though is that the maps will remain free.

Patience padawans ... good things come to those who wait :wink:

Ah ha ! Let me guess....

phase 1: if you miss a junction, a nice voice will immediately 'rap you' , show a nice pic on your screen 'mocking you' ... :mrgreen: , but you will still get re-routed. =D>

phase 2: if you miss a junction, 2 nice filipina (I thought I seen that video somewhere in this forum :lol: ) will pop up on your Nuvi screen and 'yak at you'.....or 'nag at you'... and 'guide you properly'....

:shock:
Look on the bright side ya? :muak:

Dear Mappers

Wow shame we have to wait so long, sure it is going to be a better Map/MSM but a long time in the life of a fledgling map such as Brunei.

When there is a loss of continuity then there will be a loss of support for the project, we all like to see the fruits of our labour and this can only be done with regular updates.

To keep making improvements, I really an updated Brunei to be released, Sarawak and Sabah are already compiled so we are almost there.

I fully understand this is a hobby, at all levels, but there again we need to support fellow members in their individual quest for enjoyment. In many cases, a fundamental requirement would be a payback via regular updates.

Please, please make a better Map/MSM but does this need to be at the expense of our updates?

Maybe it would be possible to update V2.30 and provide an easy solution.
