Grrrr...Rick, you beat me to it.

I will wait for all those running 4.0/4.1 to give this release a clean bill of health before installing on my 3.1/3.2 units.

Although I suspect that there are other changes besides what is shown in the change log (normal for Garmin) I did want to report that the update went smoothly. I did notice the 760 took a long time to reboot the first time after the firmware was installed. The software loading message stays on the screen for probably a minute or more, which is a long time when your worried about 'bricking' your GPS.

So far all other boot ups have been OK with no long "loading maps" occurring.

Can't say as I blame you for waiting if you have 3.1 units but for all the folks with 4.0 or 4.1 I see no reason to wait as you couldn't be any worse off ;-)

For those who feel safer with using the direct download file update method rather than WebUpdater, here is the link:

In a simulation test on my 750, the .1 mile voice lag in 3D mode appears to be fixed. Although I notice that when the voice starts the map freezes for a second or so. The voice doesn't freeze, just the map. So my guess is there was an issue with the processor being overloaded, and to fix the problem they decided to suspend the map refresh while the voice started. Just my guess.

I haven't had a chance to test it yet in real world driving.

But again, using Jill and 3D view, the .1 mile voice lag seems to be fixed.

To those who had 760's/770's & broken Bluetooth due to backdating from 4.x to an earlier version (and still have the issue), it would be interesting to see if this release fixes the broken Bluetooth issue without requiring a trip to Garmin. Please post your findings.

Just back from a short 6Km drive around the area. I find the LAG between the announcement and the distance to turn shown on the screen to be COMPLETELY fixed. Now when the 760 says in 500 meters, the screen reads 500 meters to the turn.

Forced a number of recalculations. The first one seemed slow but after another 3 I think it is actually much faster to do a recalculation than with 4.0/4.1. Not sure it's as fast as the 3.1 days but anything is an improvement over what we had :)

Certainly no voice stuttering issues using American English Jack and 3D mode but I never really had that problem before anyway.

I always found that if you go to View Map immediately after the 760 booted up that it took forever to 'draw' the map screen. I don't see any improvement with this firmware release but on the other hand I don't recall a lot of folks mentioning this as an issue. On the plus side I am finding 'screen scrolls' faster with no long waits for the screen to 'draw'.

Saving a location by tapping the vehicle icon worked fine as well.

Off on a 300Km highway trip tomorrow so should be able to give the new version a workout.

@ PouchX

Ouch...it's looking more and more like these units indeed need to go back to Garmin, unless they can come up with a software cure in the future.

My warranty for N760 ends in one month.
I bought N765 also... so I will send my N760 back to Garmin.
I dont believe that Garmin will fix BT problem with next firmware update.

Has anyone had any problems with POI dialing? In the Australian version if you select any POI and try to dial the number it will not dial all other functions work ok but the POI dialing is really upsetting me at the moment. WIll upgrade to 4.20 tonight and see if these issues are solved.

Not one to say the right words most of the time, two words however do come to mind.

UNDER THE CATEGORY - WOULD YOU BELIEVE ??

For whatever reason I checked out the Currency Converter, which hasn't worked for many firmware updates. I think they have finally fixed it. At least it worked fine setting a conversion rate for the Cdn Dollar and doing a couple of conversions to US dollars.

Does anyone know if the truncated expiration date on the traffic page has been corrected? How about the long-standing "battery charging complete" message bug? Just wondering if Garmin is/was on a roll correcting long-standing issues (like the Currency Converter bug that Rick just mentioned).

@FourPlay26

POI dialing works fine on my 760 with firmware 4.2

@GadgetGuy2008

Can confirm the short screen delay in simulation mode. Didn't really notice any delay while actually driving a route. Well check more closely tomorrow.
