thank you for your patience,...

Thanks for the update. Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating...or some such tale. If true, that's a good sign. I can't imagine an update to a problem-ridden issue would be issued on or just before a weekend--better to have tech support be ready for a snafu early the next week. So a release next Tuesday might mean the fix is ready and they're just waiting for the beginning of the next work week after the 3-day holiday weekend. It's be a long wait, hasn't it?

Map Update

I agree, they are probably waiting until they can have all on staff man the phones for support. I hope it is worth the wait.

I Apologize But................................

Hey everyone, I don't want to sound like a pr@#*, but there is already a current thread about this identical subject.

EDIT: Well it's actually about the 885T, but I think the info is applicable to the whole 8XX family.

The existing thread already has some valuable information including how the current 2011.10 update can break the voice recognition feature.

Another member broke his 855 only yesterday because he was not aware of the problem ( and Garmin support did not tell him either).

It would be a shame if more people ran into problems because the existing thread got lost from neglect.

I suggest that any future discussions on this topic be done in the existing thread.

Which is???

I agree, but...

I would have to agree with you but some users might think that the original thread applies only to the 885. The whole 8XX family is messing up. So in this part I do think however the original thread should have been renamed.
