I tend to agree.. unless Garmin introduced the 2 state versions at a different time than the "4 state" versions, in which case they might have employed a different philosophy or mapset available to them....

I hope somebody shows us a specific screen shot examples of my request above. And if you do, please specify if it was on a uSD card, download or DVD. Thanks.
