Zumo 550 and 500 software update 12/20/07

Sorry if it's old news:
new update for Zumo 550 and 500 software at Garmin's web site:
http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=1907

12/20/2007

Nothing major but some good stuff
* Add support for African Time zones.
* Add support for several new pre-recorded voices.
* Add support for distances in yards when a British voice is selected (may require updated voice).
* Added support for MAD Maps scenic routes.
* Allow the compass page to display 5 digits of elevation.
* Improved handling of circular routes. Allows entry at alternate point. Will not announce arrival when starting a route. (All routes will be deleted after update, but can be re-imported from GPX files.)
* Keep the map detail level when go from main map to browse map.
* When reviewing a gas station after pressing the fuel button from main map, the map will now be centered on selected gas station rather than the vehicle.
* Change Optimal Reorder so it does not include the final point when reordering.
* Correct issue where backlight may change if you remain on the backlight adjust page for a period of time.
* Correct issue where backlight may turn off when location is above polar circle.
* Correct issue that would sometimes cause highways to be labeled with the incorrect name.
* Correct issue that would not allow more than a single point to be added to some routes.
* Correct issues when the same map is loaded in two different regions.
* Correct issue when searching for cities on basemap.
* Correct off road transitions in track to route when there is no map coverage.
* Correct issue playing Audible format 4 books.
* Correct distance for mixed routes imported from MapSource
* Correct issue that caused all traffic delays to be 1min when using certain maps.
* Correct issue that prevented TrafficMaster service from being properly named on the unit.
* Correct issue that prevented some very large track log activities from being archived correctly.
* Correct issue where changes to a route would be lost if you press and hold the back button.
* Correct issue that caused MP3?s to be paused for navigation announcements when navigation was set to off and a pre-recorded voice was selected.

Make sure you have the bluetooth turned on. Version 3.00 BT software can be updated as well....

BTW, make sure you have made a backup of all your routes in the zumo. After the update they're gone... DAMHIK

What exactly do I have to 'turn on' on bluetooth?
I had my "Bluetooth = Enabled" on the bluetooth screen, but still have the version 2.4 after update.
Is there any other place that I have to turn on?

Thank you

No. You probably updated your Zumo before the BT software update became available. Hook your Zumo again on your computer and run the webupdater. The updater will tell you you already have the latest software and it will look for more updates. Then you'll see the BT update; check the box in front of it and it will update the BT software....


After the BT software update you will have to pair your cell phone to the Zumo again.

I expect the BMW Zumo to get updates from BMW, like all previous Navigator models.

http://www.bmw-motorrad.com/com/en/index.html

Goto: Equipment -> Navigation & Communication -> Downloads

There you will find the latest software for your GPS.



Maybe, in time, the updates will also be available through the downloads page of Garmin.

Garmin must have already 'fixed' their update to the Zumo. Did it yesterday - I didn't lose my routes.

Heh Heh I did the update after reading this w/o saving and lost my Bend, OR route!

Oh well, we still found our daughter's home. Damn nice having the "find address" feature.

Ride On!
