    FWIW, it took about 35 minutes to download and install on a pretty fast WiFi connection to a 2015 MacBook Pro.

    Thanks John. It shows as being 5.74GB for the Windows version and states that Installation Time is "3 hours"!

    We'll see how long it actually takes (I always set Garmin Express to download to both the computer and device). Initial estimate once the download started at 1.5 hours and has been going down during this download (@ 13.5 MB/s).

    Total install time took a little longer than yours John at 38 minutes (far better than Garmin's projected 3-hours), but that may have been because I had several programs open and was doing about 4 other things on the computer through that time including a download and install of the new Sena Bluetooth Device Manager software. ;-)

    Interestingly, the same map update (2019.30) for my Garmin nuvi58 is small at 3.56 GB and a projected 18 minutes to install.

    I probably will not use them before the next update in February but I still did both of our Nav Vs.
    I need to get the Nuvi from Debbie's car and update it.

    I did not time them exactly, one took approx 40 minutes and the other 25 minutes. I only uploaded the maps to the Nav.
