Thanks for the heads-up

According to their webpage, it looks like it corrects the poi identification problem that you posted about earlier.

"Corrected issue that prevented being able to identify points on the map when browsing the 2009.11 CNNA maps."

I'll be interested to see if it does, as soon as my replacement unit arrives. On second thought, maybe I'll test it on my wife's first this time.

no Poifect....

You were likely looking at the v3.30 changelog. See the the v3.40 changelog above in my edited post.

EDIT: The page has now been updated.

Can't get back.

The link that you originally posted & have subsequently removed is the one from which I pulled the quote. The link that remains in your first entry just brings up a page of gibberish for me, so I'll take your word on the lack of change to the poi information problem.

Well, there's always the next update.

Poifect, that problem was fixed in the previous update, at least for US maps. Are you saying that previous update did not fix it for you? Or you have not applied it yet?

Nope, In fact it broke mine

As I commented in Dorkus' other node on that subject, the latest software update is where I lost my point of interest notifications. The poi's are still there but if clicked, no information is given.

After 3 weeks of correspondence with Garmin tech support, multiple software reinstalls & hard restarts, they are replacing my unit. I should receive it this week. I haven't updated my wife's 765 in the fear that the same thing would happen to hers.

Very strange because the POI info/v2009.11 map bug was corrected with firmware v3.30 for myself and others here. The bug was also correctable by backdating the firmware to the previous version. Hope the new unit solves this issue for you. I do find it very odd though that you couldn't resolve the issue via firmware updates.

Yes, that is why I asked for

Yes, that is why I asked for a clarification. It does seem the previous update fixed that for everyone.... You may want to check and make sure you really do have the latest - or at the least that previous update.

Odd it was

I too thought it seemed like a software/firmware issue (& it may have been) but I reinstalled everything a few times over the last few weeks, under the guidance of a couple of Garmin techs. They were stumped, & they know a fair piece more than I about these gizmos. I'll post back after the replacement arrives.

3.40 Update

Hi guys, I was looking to see if anyone is experiencing any strange anomalies with the new 3.40 update before I take the plunge.

No problems here...

v3.40 seems to have fixed the issue I was having with the traffic delay times not being displayed. I have noticed no new bugs and it seems very stable.

Remember though that if you -do- have a problem with the new version, it's a simple matter to backdate the firmware to the previous version if you feel the need to.

And it's always a good idea to "Clear All User Data" (press & hold bottom right corner of screen while powering the unit on) after updating. Remember to backup your favorites before doing so.

I'll give it a try and thanks for the info.

You are correct, it seems to have corrected the traffic delay problem. I didn't notice if the ETA updates with the delay. It appears to update, but will keep an eye on it.

Problem with 3.40

The problem with the map not showing poi info that was fixed with a previous update is now back. Noticed it today when I hovered over a poi and got nothing. Tried in several different items and same results.
This was the problem that caused the custom and pre-installed poi info not to appear on the map when you put the arrow on it. Street names no longer appear either. Guess I updated too soon.

backing up

Before even considering clearing user data... what files do I need to copy to backup my Favorites list on the 7x5 series?

updated to 3.40

Just a quick update on 3.40, I used my 755t all today and noticed no strange anomalies. My unit works as good as it did before the update.

Update: a mixed bag, some fixed-some broke

I received the replacement for my 765 from Garmin today. I had to update the firmware before it would let me register the unit online. I did, then set it up using the back-up from the unit I returned. POI's work properly.

With this victory under my belt & the reassuring words in the posts above, I updated my wife's 765 but now, as I've feared all along, SHE has lost the ability to get any info about POI's on the map.

Both units are using software version 3.40, the only difference is our maps -hers: CN North America NT 2009.11 3D & mine: City Navigator North America NT 2009 3D (I haven't updated the new one yet).

Since others are running the new maps along with 3.40 without problems, could something be malfunctioning in the Mac version of WebUpdater? My unit was updated directly from "My Garmin" on their website & everything works.

I'm glad they fixed the GPS

I'm glad they fixed the GPS firmware issue with this update, I noticed it would kick in from time to time, and I'd have to turn it off and on several times to get it to stop.

Poifect,On my 765T, I have

Poifect,

On my 765T, I have the CN North America NT 2009.11 map (which now of course means 3D and 2D as you cannot separate them anymore)& software version 3.40. With only one exception, when I go to the map you can drag, and point to any POI - my own or built in, I get the info.
The one exception, if I am in the vicinity of one of my own POI'S, and receiving an alert for it, when I drag the map and point to a built in (not my own) POI, it just goes back to my alerting POI. But I don't see this as a bug, or at least a problem.

I notice you specified hers is 2009.11 3D only? If that is really the case you are missing the other part of the 2009.11 map.
I can't speak to a possible MAC issue, I am using Vista. But might be a place to start.

2D anomaly

The problem started with 2009.11 maps, the software updates have corrected most of the problems. As for selecting apart of the map in 2D, where you would get the poi or street address info, I have noticed it varies from state to state. Example: I can’t get the info in NYC but it works for NJ. Won’t work in Washington, DC but will in Ohio. This is so strange. Can others varify this as well?

2009.1x maps and firmware 3.30

If you have the 2009.11 maps and firmware version 3.30, getting POI or street address info on zoomed in 2D maps will work in some parts of the US and not others. For example it will work in Austin, TX but not in Madison, Wisc. If you have v. 3.10 and the 2009.11 maps you shouldn't have this problem. If you have v.3.30 and 2008 maps, you shouldn't have this problem.

It's with the combination of 2009 maps plus v3.30, that the problem appears in some regions and not others. I don't know yet whether v3.40 fixes this, but it is not listed as one of 3.40's fixes.

The above probably applies to 7x5 series Nuvis, as other Nuvis have different firmware numbers.

Thanks, but that's not it

Tampa8,
She's got both maps, I just listed one to note the version. That mapset worked fine until I upgraded the software to verson 3.4. I've got to call Garmin, although I'm not sure if they're open on Saturday.

bandaid, the problem is you

bandaid, the problem is you are a Yankee fan... grin

You are correct, set my location to NYC, it will show my own POI'S, but does not identify the built in ones. Strange that some areas of the country do not show.....wonder if Garmin is aware of this.

Radom???

This must be a random problem as Barcard stated. When I first had the problem, I can't remember what city or even state I was in. But I haven't had the problem since. Not sure if it's the area, or a a sporadic problem with the nuvi. Has anyone tried duplicating the problem in the same area they had the original malfunction?
