MAPping appointments

I’m wondering how often you go for a MAPping appointment after you have had your CI for over a year?

What typically happens at those appointments?  Are you tested on speech and speech in noise?

Do you find that you have a favorite MAP that works for you for several years?

Hi, I'm wondering the same thing. I recently had an appointment but not happy with the new maps. Should I be able to return quickly to have something else tried. I knew after 3 or 4 days that they were not better than the map I use all the time.

Do you keep your old MAP in a program slot so you can return to it if needed?

I am sorry I don’t remember when you were activated.

In the early months, while we were getting my ear to a stable spot, new MAPs would sometimes set me back for a couple of weeks while I trained them.  But then they advanced further than previous MAPs.

 

I did a lot of aural rehab everyday.  If a new MAP did not settle in after 2 weeks, I knew the MAP needed to be adjusted.

 

Now that I have been a CI user for 4 years, I know rather quickly if a MAP change will work.

But everyone’s CI journey is unique.  Trust your instincts.

Wishing you the best.
