Odd occurence on F8 maps

Recommended Posts

Since installing F8 map update I have come across a very odd occurence. I regularly travel an A road in my location and as I approach a particular roundabout the nav display shows a 'no entry' and 'roadworks' icon at the roundabout.  After the roundabout either side of the road shows a purple line. I assume this purple line indicates the road is closed. These purple lines continue for the next 7 miles to the end of my journey. It also shows this on my return journey.

Funny thing is I have lived in this area 23 years and this particular road has never been closed for roadworks and is not now as I am still traveling it.

Did not show up on F7 maps.

Any one else finding oddities with F8 maps?

Further to the above. Nav system is has now started to show the road as not closed.

While I am here I have found that if I do a sync 3 update check on the website in the maps section I get the following.

Your Maps software needs updating. Approx. 0MB
This so called update gives me a GB5T-14G386-AB.tar file. This file I believe is the one that gives you the log file you use to notify the update website that you have carried out the update. Which I did weeks ago.
Anyone out there come across this?

I get the same result. Ford have told me and others here they have problem with downloads at present and we should try again in a few weeks ? Don't hold your breath.
