Heads Up on ver. 2010.30

 

I have had my 750 since Dec 2007 and have done many (all) update to firmware and maps. I have never encountered a map freeze.

I installed 2010.30 last Friday with o problems. Today I was driving to the shopping mall and as I parked I noticed my nuvi had stopped. It would not respond to screen touch and showed a driving speed of 2.7 mph notwithstanding that I was not moving. I unplugged the unit and it turned off immediately. After turning it on again all seems well. Trust it will never happen again.

Anyone else have this happen after installing 2010.30?

Not exactly.

I have not had this exact experience (755T) but I have had some odd behavior after a map update in the past ... wierd navigation, etc. It was always corrected with a hard reset, so I have made the reset and reloading current.gpx as a final step on every map update.

Not with map update, but.....

I have not yet installed the 2010 maps on my 750, so I cannot speak on freeze issues with the map update. However, after updating my firmware to ver 4.90 in October, I did begin to experience freezes such as those you describe. The only way I got rid of the freeze problem was to revert back to the 4.80 firmware.
I hope that this freeze issue doesn't return when I do the map update. sad

Thanks for the tip getround.

I did not update my firmware from 4.80 to 4.90 when it came out in October. Looks like Garmin did that for me with the map 2010.30 update. I will try to reload 4.80

Will let you know if that makes a difference.

I also doubt it was the map update. When you update maps on any nuvi or register a new unit with Garmin, your unit software (firmware) is automatically updated (more like "force-updated" whether or not you want it done) to the newest version. In your case with the 7x0 series, it was likely updated to v4.90. There have been many reports that v4.90 is causing sporadic freezing.

Here is the direct link to v4.80. To use it, simply connect the nuvi to the PC, then drag the downloaded file onto your WebUpdater icon.

Thanks for posting this--I think I may revert back myself.

Another heads-Up: Mexico is no longer included

The Mexico detailed map was included with NA 2010.20 but is no longer part of NA 2010.30. If you need Mexico after updating your North America map, you will have to buy it separately.

So Whats New with Version 2010.30???

Do we have any improvements with version 2010.30 beyond updated maps?

PS: I have a Nuvi 650, and there was also a software/firmware update too!! NOTE: The software/firmware update required a separate download. It was NOT automatic.

I rolled back to 4.80 firmware and all is fine. No more freezing issues.

I wonder if Garmin is working on this or is this not a wide spread issue.

No problems yet...

Updated my 765t last week and (knock on wood) no problems yet. After I updated maps webupdater said all was up to date. Went to mygarmin and update was available. Maybe firmware?

I've had my nuvi with 10

I've had my nuvi with 10 updated for 1 week now and not a problem at all.

Probably Not

@Frside007

Probably Not a firmware if Webupdater didn't find it. The myDashboard feature on myGarmin.com is famous for reporting every kind of software update but never reporting what the update is for.

IMHO, it's best to stay away from myDashboard.

Frside007,

This is what was recently updated on the 765T (just as it was on mine):

nuvi 7x5 Translation Files (region file only) software version 2.60 as of November 19, 2009

Direct link to changelog page:
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4385

It was NOT firmware that was updated. I do not use myDashboard for the sole reason that it never tells you exactly what is being updated. "t923347" gives good advice to stay away from it and use WebUpdater.

Mexico

I have CNNA 2010.20 and everything prior to it and while 2010.20 is unique in that series in that there are many more town names, there are only major Mexican highways - no local streets south of that border . . . it is similar to having a basemap with city names attached. Interesting, but useless for navigating, not to mention that there are no POIs.

Maybe Garmin thought they'd finally do the right thing and include Mexico as part of North America - after all, it is. And then, perhaps they reversed the decision.

When I'm down there I use my Nokia phone to get around. It came with detailed maps of the world on a DVD. It is clunky, but it works - and besides, I don't actually drive when I'm down there, so it's good enough for my needs.

No lockups (yet) on 750

I put 4.90 on my 750 shortly after it came out and then did a hard reset as a likely inoculation as I had read several posts here about others experienced lockup issues that presumably went away after they had done the hard reset. Last week I put on 2010.30 and have yet to see any issues... I know, posting this will jinx it!
wink

I have to agree with some of the others that the lockups are more likely related to the software updates and not the maps. Understandably if the map update forces a software update in the background, it would be easy to assume it was the maps.

Before performing a hard reset, save your Favorites by copying Current.gpx from the GPX folder on your nüvi to your PC. After the reset, rename the file to Temp.gpx and then copy it back to the GPX folder and then power-cycle the nüvi. This will restore your Favorites. Also note that the hard reset will put any settings back to the factory defaults, so you will have to go back into the menus to make any changes back the way you had them (e.g. map view, coordinate format, avoids, etc.).

To do a hard reset on the 750, touch and hold the lower right corner of the screen while turning the device on. Then answer the prompt.

When updating your map updates, do the following to avoid the forced firmware upate. I've done it several times and it works flawlessly.

Cheers !

Right-click on the file named GarminDevice.xml on the nuvi drive located in x:/Garmin and select "Open With" and choose Notepad. Look for the following line approx 6 lines down from the top:

< SoftwareVersion >320< /SoftwareVersion >

The current software version on the unit is listed here. Mine says 320 but yours will be likely be 230 since you stated that your unit came with that version. Change the 230 (or whatever other version number it is) to 420 (this is the current Garmin version available). Make no other changes.

*Note that I had to add spaces in the example line above so the forum would not interpret the line as valid html code. Don't add the spaces that I added above.

After doing so, save the file (file/save). Don't unplug or power off the unit...keep it connected to the PC. Run the registration process again which should now let you register the unit. After doing so, be sure and delete GUPDATE.GCD if it gets installed on the nuvi again somewhere in the process.

Don't worry if you somehow mess up on the file editing as this file is regenerated at every nuvi power cycle.

From here on afterwards, you will have to delete GUPDATE.GCD from the nuvi every time after running WebUpdater since each time you do, it will find the newest update and reinstall GUPDATE.GCD again since you will still have an older version on the unit.

Editing the GarminDevice.xml file simply fools WebUpdater and/or the registration process into thinking that the most current software verison is already installed on the unit. After the nuvi is power cycled & GarminDevice.xml is regenerated, the software version listed in the file will again list the older version that is currently on the unit.

This problem is usually

This problem is usually related to a firmware upgrade. Unfortunately Garmin won't let you d/l new maps without first upgrading the firmware version.

No problems!

I have 2010.30 / 4.90 on my 760 and no problems! grin

Shame on Garmin

Why doesn't Garmin just allow you to chose if you want the update or not. It could offer a popup request box and ask if you would like the update when you go to grab the map updates.

garmindevice.xml file

Hi Gadget man

By editing GarminDevice.xml file with the above procedure (see my last post) you can download new maps WITHOUT upgrading the firmware.

I've done this every time I've done a map upgrade. It's easier using this method than having to rollback the firmware after the upgrade.

As previously stated it will also work during registration process and when using WebUpdater.

Have a nice week !

I just launched Mapsource (6.15.7) and looked at what's south of the border. My maps show to be City Navigator North America NT 2010.3. All I'm seeing are the major roads and towns and a whole bunch of POI, but no streets.

Are there different versions of maps at 2010.30 possibly based on what one is entitled to by model of nüvi??? Just a thought.

"There's no substitute for local knowledge" nüvi 750, nüvi 3597

The detail is very likely there...

...it's just locked

Here's the way to see this for yourself:

Using MapSource, zoom out to 7 mi, then pan the map so no portions of the unlocked US area on the map are visible and you are only over Mexico (a good place to pan the map is over Ensenada Mexico). When over this area a "Map Detail Locked" message will appear just above the zoom scale indicator. If you proceed to pan the map South of Mexico to where there is no map detail, an Overzoom message will appear. The only area where Map Detail Locked will appear is over Mexico. Once you pan back over any of the unlocked US area (even over the very small Cayman Islands just to the south of Cuba), the message will go away.

AFAIK, there are four actions for the message below the map scale:

1. GPS Map Detail: map detail is present and unlocked

2. Map Detail Locked: map detail is present but needs to be unlocked within MapSource

3. Overzoom: extreme zoom level, maps may exhibit distortion

4. no message: no maps installed in that area

This tells me that the detail is likely there, just locked. This was likely done to help purchasers of nuMaps Lifetime who would like to purchase the detailed maps of Mexico. The detail is already in the maps, they would just need to purchase an unlock code.

Don't know how big Mexico would be, but that seems a little rough on people who don't want the Mexico detail but are squeezing to fit the map onto older machines with limited internal storage?

Just select what you want in Mapsource

If you have the NA 2010.30 Mapsource file, you can generate your own img file to install on your GPS and when you do that, you select what you want and unselect what you don't want (such as Mexico or Canada or whatever part of the map you're not interested in) to make the file as small as needed to fit your unit.

No problems here either.

I have load both 2010.20 and 2010.30 on my sd card for a nuvi 200 with no problems no freezing either, i just recently found out that poi's under hospitals are repeated twice, main entrance and emergency entrance, pretty dumb if you ask me, but hey i guess i can live with it.

Since you have two maps, it makes sense to see two POIs. But I wouldn't think that it would be limited to just Hospital ones. Do you see this behavior anywhere else? I also think that you should still be able to navigate OK, even if seeing the POI twice seems a bit clunky.

I would also be curious to know how routing works if you have two maps installed. Does it only use the most recent map in order to route?

You can

You can probably select which map to use from the Tools-Settings-Map-Map Info page. I doubt it would be showing both maps at once. Most Nuvi's have just enough horsepower to run with one set of maps.

several issues

so i installed 2010.30 on my nuvi650 few days ago and was driving in nyc from nj. used to have 2010.10 and had no problem following the gps at all (with antenna). but with this .30 version, it seems like it cant reconize where my location is most of the time in the city, and lost connection easily, if i follow where nuvi is directing, it wont get me out of nyc lol (mainly downtown area), midtown is alright. i was going to take lincoln tunnle on my way home at midnight (saw the sign) but wanna try if this new map is better so i took the direction which nuvi showed, it lead me to a wall of death.. lol, but anyway i turned back and take the old way.

i noticed if my location is idle (inside car or at home), supposely nuvi should stay still, but no.. it moves 2mph ahead of my location, and sometimes "moves" back to my location..

ive also noticed recalculating speed is much slower than .10, laggy sort of

so now i installed back to 2010.20 ver. i didnt use it in nyc yet but so far it does good job on interstate highway, and queens at ny, nj as well.

just a warning for u guys who wish to upgrade, NEWEST doesnt mean the best, gotta go with the one thats stable. good luck

Not the maps

It sounds like your SAT reception.
