I just ordered it from Garmin for my '08. For those of you who have purchaced this upgrade, are there any enhancements to the functionality, or is it the same old screens with a few new roads added?
I've found a few things online about "glitches" with their update and was hoping the problem had been resolved. Since they made it right with you and because I ordered directly through Garmin, I can only hope they updated those that were already on the shelf as well.I got mine a while ago. Haven't used it much, but seems like same interface and options with updated roads.
On a side note. There were problems with original update card. Garmin did the right thing and notified me of problem, credited purchase, then sent me the corrected, updated card for no charge after the problem was straightened out.
Kudos to them!
I was offered this update by a fellow rider. My response so far has been " You lead, I'll follow. "I finally worked up the nerve to install the update. Followed the instructions from Garmin and the process only took about 2 minutes. Checked and sure enough the new firware version 4.6 and Mar/2011 maps are there.
I've read some negative stuff on other forums but all is well so far. I did contact Garmin Support about some of the things I'd read and they did confirm via e-mail that there is a problem with the latest firmware whereas you cannot insert a space when entering a city name that begins with "St" (i.e. St. George, St. Louis, etc.). once you enter "St", the space bar dims and cannot be selected. You then have to scroll through every city in the country that starts with "St" until you find the one you want.
Hope to get it out this weekend to give it the 'ol smoke test.
