The raw data read rate from a fixed dvd drive will always be loads quicker than from a usb stick/ drive.

The delay is the cic pc processing / copying time not the dvd read rate.

I was using nav throughout the upgrade, so it must copy it over first.

No 7 digit postcodes for me though- i must need the newer nav software too
