Caution

Import all your routes from your Zumo into Mapsource before you do this update. All internal routes will be deleted by the update.

Nope..

But the REAL zumo now has a new feature:
Check out "Avoidences" and you will find "Autobahn"

In Europe this setting is (finaly) working to avoid what we call highways.
I am very curious what this setting does on American roads.

Anyone want to find out for us??

No big deal because it will save everything to GPX - unless you bother it - when you connect the USB cable before the update. After the updates, the first thing it asks is if you want reload the data. (Manage Data?)

Any idea of who to talk to for an update that allows you to see the lat/long for you current position or for other points? If this can be done already...how? Sorry if it's sort of highjack but thanks for all the info!

Check out www.zumoforums.com for all your off topic questions

The answer is: If you tab on your vehicle, the current position (including lat/long) can be saved as a favorite.

It's a left-handed way to do it but for current position Menu->Where To->Coordinates

There is more than the 3.80 update. If you use the webupdater, you will also find that there is Bluetooth firmware update, a GPS firmware update and one for the GTM-xx's.

Bluetooth updates:

Changes from version 2.40 to version 3.00:
Improved Bluetooth support for various phones
Fixed a Motorola call waiting issue
Improved phone ring-tone support
New special pairing mode for some phonebooks


This is awesome - avoidances now has "Interstates" as a selectable thing to avoid

Update. I have had it calculate a couple long routes that I have made quite a bit, and it's the closes a GPS has ever come to the way I prefer to go without tweaking

Now they need to add the avoid interstate feature to Mapsource - that would be simple and make life so much easier.

I've yet to see a 450 update.

GPS n00b of course (I prefer nimrod, but I'm old school)
Try it. Hook it up and fire up the webupdater and see what it says.
