Tried out a few of the changes:

>Improved touchable accuracy of red pin removal

Seems better, but then the previous incarnation gave me no problems.

>Fixed issues with Direct Routing

This does seem better, at a quick glance on a test route.

>Fixed routing behavior after changing Activity type during an active route

No idea.

>Fixed issue causing Routing Avoidance selections not to be saved

Definitely fixed. Yay.

>Fixed issues when disconnecting from mass storage

I did the update on my Win 7 Netbook and it seemed to disconnect and shut down properly, and rebooted properly after that.

>Fixed issues with map set selections across Profiles


No idea about any of the following fixes.

>Fixed issue causing 'Use' button to not display on the map
>Fixed display of waypoint icons in Recent Finds list
>Fixed issue with Favorites menu caused by changing Profiles and restarting unit
>Fixed issue with main menu dashboard caused by changing Profiles via shortcut on main menu

Howdy All,

How do I know what version I am now running on my Montana, I know it tells you when you first turn it on but it displays and disappears so fast I can't read it. I get confused trying to find stuff on the Montana, way to darn many menus for me. So if someone could give a step by step answer I sure would appreciate it thanks. Sorry for being so darn dump, it is what it is.

And Mr Cob, look way down for the "About". It's last on the list, usually.

I've lost track.

How many of the "fixes" in 3.99 beta became issues from other fixes and/or improvements in beta versions since the release of the non-beta 3.90?

I hope that made sense,

Jon...

There's one bug I've been notifying the beta team about for a while now and, as of 3.98, it's still not fixed Surely I can't be the only one with this issue, which relates to custom backgrounds (I've not tried it on the default ones so I don't know if the bug is there on them too) and the landscape control function.

On my unit I've created some graduated displays with an icon representing different profiles. This icon is fixed in the bottom left corner of a 9x9 icon matrix, and with the landscape controls set to 'Left' they all display correctly. However at some point landscape controls revert to 'Right' on the landscape screen which messes up the grid alignment. It's really annoying to have to keep putting it back.

Has no one else noticed this or am I really the only one?

BTW if anyone wants a copy of the backgrounds, maybe I could put them up on the Dropbox account(?), just let me know. The only issue for you motorcyclists, is that the only bike icon I could find and that I liked is a pushbike Should anyone have a full set of icons by all means send them to me and I'll have a go at creating some new backgrounds. Just be aware I don't have much time at the mo hence my lack of posting on here.

My best,
Robbie

PS Bet FW 3.99 hasn't fixed the issue

I'd wait before going to 3.99. I played around with my Montana this morning and it looks to me like map selections are not saved in the different profiles, so each time you change profiles, you need to set the maps you want in that profile.

In other words, a selection of maps will be enabled, but not likely the choice you wanted.

Will send this off to the Beta team.

Edit - the maps/profile problem is in 3.98 too.
