MSST update update

I just passed two short GPX files with 3 or 4 waypoints to my Nuvi 500
The first was a GPX export from MSST 2013 "as is" ...
I looked at it in notepad It did have the <time> ... </time> markers in it
The file was one long line of text with no line breaks....

The second file was the same GPX file after running it thru GPSBabel.
GPSBabel stripped out the <time> markers and reformatted the file so that each waypoint was on a new line so much easier to work with in notepad if you wanted to do that ........

but long story short both versions of the file were converted to routes by Nuvi 500 without error ...

So maybe Garmin updated the firmware in the Nuvi to ignore the <time> issue?
Or maybe it's just MapSource / BaseCamp that care about the <time> items and the GPS it's self doesn't care?
