Thanks for the heads up, will now fire up the trusty ol' Webupdater ;-)

Long "shopping" list...

...but was highly anticipated for sure!

Downloaded - no mention of the Mapsouce 'routes' issue being fixed - testing now.

Can't say I have experienced or noticed any of the issues that Garmin have fixed so I wonder where they get their list of "must do" fixes from - surely there are issues on this and other forums which the wider community would have attached greater preference to! Still, Kudos to Garmin for the update

Had to use Webupdater TWICE before the update was successfully installed but it finally made it to the unit. Still can't upgrade maps to 2011.20 however.

Well, don't tell anybody but I pulled the USB cable out of the Nuvi on the second try, instead of 'safely removing hardware'. Don't know if that's the 'magic' or not but the update loaded and installed correctly.

No joy with that trick here. I'm getting a bit frustrated with Garmin's slips lately...

I'd be interested in any other idea. I already tried a "restore", my next step might be a "hard reset".

Just noticed on another forum that someone with your problem used MyDashboard instead of Webupdater and then pulled the USB cable and that worked for him.

Yes, I had to pull the USB cable instead of safely removing the device to get my favorites transferred over to the unit. This is under Win7 64-bit. WinXP 32-bit does not require this "just pull the cable to complete the file transfer". I reported this early on as many others also have. I wonder if v2.50 resolves this issue as it goes totally against everything I've been doing for years now regarding disconnecting external USB devices.

MyDashboard and a premature disconnect finally worked for me. Thanks. I hope the next update is a little less problematic.

Garmin needs to correct this "pull the cable to properly write the files to the nuvi drive" bug (Win7 64-bit). It's going to cause a lot of issues in updating units for both firmware updates and map updates. If one doesn't know this pull the cable "trick", you can sit there literally all day trying to download the firmware...maps could be an even bigger nightmare. Imagine after downloading/installing the map update (for hours), you safely disconnect the unit and voila! No maps, or the same maps you started with.

Maybe this is why they're holding off on the map updates for the 37xx series.

couple of points:
1. I had no problem whatsoever in downloading or installing the update. Downloaded in just a couple of minutes and took a couple of minutes more to install.

2. the main screen now has icons for "stop route" "detour" and "phone" even if they are not being used and/or disabled (though in such a state they are grayed out).

3. Haven't "taken it out for a spin" yet; will do so tomorrow morning when I trip to downtown (I'll put the 3790t through its paces then).

Mine had those right out of the box with no update...

Mine had the greyed out stop and detour right out of the box. Not sure the phone showed up until I'd paired by phone but once I did a greyed out phone icon was always there when my phone was turned off or out of range.

I've just done a 'hard reset' after doing the 2.50 update and I have the stop and detour icon but no phone as I haven't repaired it yet.

Phone now paired and when turned off the greyed out phone icon is on the screen.

One small thing I noticed is that after the 2.50 update and pairing the phone, tapping the volume icon brings up the Master Volume screen as before but instead of the 'equalizer' icon in the top left corner there is now a 'wrench'. Seems to be the same function - ability to adjust volume for navigation and phone separately.
