I do this with each generation to test the system. It still needs to be "fixed".

Garmin still requires you to purchase a DVD product if you want to then purchase nuMaps Lifetime Update. I no longer purchase DVD's since Garmin made it clear they wanted people to buy "downloaded" software. OK. I can download software. Now, I have again registered my objections that I can't apply a nuMaps Lifetime Update to a downloaded CNNA. The cost of the two products (Download & DVD) are essentially the same and if you stay your ground (politely) Garmin will offer to send you the DVD for the cost difference between the Download and DVD products -- which is $0. This is a Garmin internal bookkeeping issue and needs to be fixed. One way to fix the problem would be to sell ALL compatible devices with the Lifetime Maps option.

As a side note, the latest version of Garmin Express for the Mac (v2.3.7) still does not recognize the Monterra.

With my recent updated ride and GPS I'm toying with the idea of selling my Montana. But then again I could mount them both. Hmmm.

Yes, I'm using Garmin Map Updater to download the map. The whole process was complicated because I used my account to buy the map for my wife who's got her own Montana registered on mygarmin.com. The key ended up in my mygarmin account so I had to log on to my account and apply the map to her gps. It worked, anyway.

Hopefully she'll be able to continue downloading updates from her account in the future, or I see myself calling Garmin tech support yet again.

At least they answer quickly and usually do what I'm asking for.

I'm rather fond of the two GPS setup - one is north up zoomed out to 5km and displaying Canada Enhanced Basemap. (Montana)

The other is on Topo, Track up and zoomed in so I can see the giant gravel downhill hairpin that's ahead (Oregon)

Z黰o series devices had SW update which added skip waypoint -feature. I asked Garmin support if this is going to be added also to Montana. Reply: "I am happy to assist you with this. I am not sure if this is something they are working on adding. I will pass along your interest in this feature. "

Maybe if someone else also feels this is important and asks Garmin to add it, we may eventually get it, I hope.

For the Montana, it's best to send suggestions to Montana.beta@garmin.com

More likely to get to the right place.

You don't seem to have much of a sense of humour re the Montana's foibles

Perhaps I didn't realize you were trying to be humorous? And maybe you're reading too much into my reply? It's an email address Garmin provided early in the dev cycle; is there any reason to update the address to reflect the stage in the cycle? I don't think so.
