I received a message in my car that a map update was available.

My maps were updated by the dealer about two weeks ago so I will probably not bother with this one. I had hoped that the monthly updates would be automatically done from the car, but I see that you need to download to a USB and do a manual update every month. If I decide to skip a few months will everything keep working fine? What are others doing?

Any advice would be be appreciated.

The map updates come out on the 1st of every month. It doesn't matter if you miss some. These days I tend to do the download at the beginning of every month when the PC is idle (it takes several hours) and then leave the USB drive in the car for when I next do a journey of 30 minutes or more to do the update. You will need a 64Gb USB drive - 32Gb isn't big enough for some updates.

It's also worth checking when your subscription expires.

Missing months is not an issue it will only be an issue if the route you take has any new roads or restrictions ect since the last update as these will not show.

Many thanks for the replies.

If you are updating on the move and the engine must keep running, I take you need to remember switch off the auto stop/start?

That's a good question. I don't think it matters as the ignition is still switched on even though the engine may not be running. That having been said I don't think I have ever put it to the test.

I'm pleased my 2021 has OTA updates, I do updates for SWMBO Ecosport and they are a real pain having to take it for a drive. I switch the ECO mode off on that, no mention of it on the F-Pace updates.

It should have resumed at the point it stopped and not from the beginning.

I think you are probably correct and the reason the engine needs to be running is that the ignition switches off after about five minutes if it is not running. I discovered this when I was fiddling with the settings. However, to be sure I will switch the stop/start off when I do the update.
