Note, however, that the 1340 LMT may have a larger file to download, so it may take longer.
Sometimes (depending on internet connection speed, time of day) the process could be very long. Pete, you are right it's not your computer and it's not your internet connection. I have three devices and all of them take hours to update, even having the maps downloaded. The USB speed I'm seeing for the nûvi 260W is just 92.5 KB/s!!
The map datafile, for the Europe map, is now about 2.5 Gb which does take some time to download and also over an hour to install.
The first action that is recomended is to register the device with Garmin then download a free map update to ensure that you have the latest maps to start.
I've had no problems registering the device or downloading the latest software, or even downloading alternate symbols.

Even my ancient Tom TOM One was quicker (till it was dropped on the floor and broke...) What speed is your Internet connection?
