Mac compatibility - Map update software

Post by twabrigs » Tue Nov 26, 2019 3:05 pm

Hi - I know the current Map update software is 32 bit. For the last three years Apple have been moving ever closer to only supporting 64 bit applications, and the latest iOS (Catalina) no longer supports 32 bit at all. I can live with not updating to the very latest iOS for a while, but are there plans to release a 64 bit Mac version of your updater?

I am a Mac user and recently bought a new Mac Mini running Catalina to replace an ageing MacBook. Since getting the Mini I have done one map update successfully. The map updater downloaded and ran with no problems. The download completed in about an hour whereas it was taking about 3 hours. Either they have released a new 64bit application or you were mistaken about it being 32bit.

Very interesting, thanks for that. I have a desktop Mac and a Macbook so I might update one to Catalina and see if the map updater works. It is showing up as 32 bit in system information but maybe it's happily compatible or your machine found a 62 bit version. I'll give it a go.

The MapDownloader software on my MacBook is v1.1.0 released 15/10/18 and is reported as a 64bit application. The version I have just downloaded to my new Mac Mini is v1.2.1 released 24/08/19. You shouldn't have any problems if you upgrade to Catalina. You just need to download the latest version of MapDownloader.

I'm running Catalina and map updates were not working so uninstalled MapDownloader and downloaded new app only to get this message...

Took the plunge and updated the Macbook to Catalina, and got the exact same error message. Jaguar can you advise please?

Leaving the desktop Mac on Yosemite for the time being.

I ran the update on Catalina yesterday using MapUpdater v1.2.1 and it downloaded in about an hour. I’ve been used to it taking at least 3 hours. The only change is that on my new Mac Mini I plug my USB stick into a USB hub that is connected via a thunderbolt port. On my old MacBook Pro I just used to plug into one of the onboard USB sockets. Surprised that it makes such a difference, but this is the second update I’ve done on the Mac Mini and both took approximately the same time to download.
