The via points are going to be of interest I think, not sure why the 340 is not compatible with this update.

Has anyone figured out the via points? I love the feature to add waypoints via browse map but I cant figure out the via points.

Thanks!

Please explain "via points". Thanks, James

PS - The SAVE option in the "browse map" works great.

Nevermind, I figured it out. If you are in a route, you can do a "where to". Then click "near" in the bottom center.

Then choose "My Current Route"

Find what you want to find, then it will ask you " Do you want to continue to your final destination by way of XXX "

Choose yes, and it inserts the via point into your route.

Very nice. I really like this feature.

Thanks garmin for listening a little :)

Ooo so anyone try out the Via Points feature? Is it really like the old 2160s? Via points where you can enter in multiple stops for one trip? I WOULD LOVE THAT!

Mike, thanks for the help.

I tried to add several "via points" while in route. So far it will only let me add one "via point". If I add a second "via point" it will cancel out the first one. Is there a way around this?

The nicest thing about this update is that Garmin have listened to what people have said.

Thankyou Garmin for the return of the Save from Browse Map feature

Thankyou also for the via points.

The 340 firmware has always been separate from the 310/320/330 firmware has it not.

Perhaps thats the priceyou pay for text-to-speech, and traffic capabilities

OK thats enough for me! I'm going to install it now! I hope its a stable version! Unlike 4.0 where it crashed and froze a lot of the units.

1. Another Change is that the GPS option menu now offers the option of

WAAS / EGNOS (previously just WAAS)

Is this truly an upgrade or is EGNOS just operational, so they've included it.

Or is this another unannounced upgrade with this Firmware?

2. The first MISTAKE on the new beta Firmware. Custom POI symbols (bmps) don't show up. I'm going to load them again to make sure, but this is a little bit of an oversight. (edit) Reloaded with POILoader - bmps still missing. Have emailed Garmin c/- the email on the download page

StreetPilot.c3xx@garmin.com

Otherwise this is an excellentupdate so far.

Another thing with this update. The method used for calculating routes has changed.

I use the unit to route from home to work on occasions - OK, I know. There is a post about this somewhere in this forum.

The emphasis placed on the roads must be different because the unit is picking a COMPLETELY different route.

(Edit) Routes are not as good ... I'll investigate more, but I think they should change whatever they changed back again.

Anyone else found a route they know well which the unit now calculates differently?

I did suggest once in an email to Garmin that the route calculation takes into account minor roads trying to cross major roads (a major source of holdups with the route my unit used to choose)

I'm not sure what the exact difference here is. Avoidances same, Faster route - all settings the same.

I think it gives a lot more street detail in the route mode. You know labels for cross streets and stuff it did not give before. It used to give nothing now almost every cross street is labelled.

Okay, after making a longer trip, maybe it does not do every cross street or road, but I do believe it is giving way more information than before.
