Hi ppl,

Be warned that v2.60, at least for Nuvi 750, will remove the management (remove, record, playback) and on-screen playback of tracklogs that is present in v2.30.

In order to view the tracklogs, you'll have to offload them into the computer via Mapsource. I've learnt it the hard way.

PS: Anyone has a software update v2.30? I am contemplating a SW downgrade. :-k
