    Default CD70 Upgrade Firmware before Maps ?

    Bit of advice please guys. Have a CD70 and have just got a 2009/10 map update disc. Do I need to update the firmware before trying the new map disc? Currently I think it is a 2005ish map disc I am using.

    I updated firmware before updating maps... not sure if it was the right thing to do but it seemed logical... oh and a word of warning... using 'downloaded' firmware update discs off tinterweb will almost certainly turn your CD70 into a paperweight!!!... recoverable only by using a proper firmware update disc from Vx... I had a friend do this once

    No need IMO. I upgraded from 2006/7 map disk to 2009/10 and still using original firmware. No problems at all.
