#1 Post by darthobiguan » Fri Nov 16, 2007 6:52 pm

Guys,

Just spotted this in Garmin webpage. Firmware v4.20 been released for Nuvi 610 and 660. Will try it out once I reach home. Hope it contains the tracking feature like Nuvi 200.

Dang !!!! Still no tracklog feature... How dissapointing.
Had to reload the UNL file for the v2.14 maps to work again. But this is no biggie.

Bro,
Please do report your findings whether the upgrading is really useful and safe. Mine is still using firmware v3.90. :wink:

So far no problem. It is able to bootup properly after upgrading. Will take the nuvi out for a spin shortly. Be ready to reload the UNL file if you have problem unlocking the maps. I had removed the UNL from my /garmin directory and upgrading the firmware must have reset the registry.

You can then try to perform the webupdater too. It will update the traffic receiver firmware but in this part of the world, it is not that useful. Just do it for fun

Still no tracklog feature : ](*,) -> :fire: -> :cry: -> :x

Just got back. The redrawing speed is slightly faster as stated by Garmin compared to v4.10. I always set my map detail to "Most detail". Other than that, nothing special.

Why do you want to use stylus for? Nuvi is meant to use with your fingers... If it is meant for stylus, I am sure it would have come with one by default. The buttons are small enough for your fingers... What kind of precision do you need when using stylus?
