charlesd45 went a bit long on his cut and paste and included every change log available for the nuvi 2xx7 and 2xx8. wink The actual log for this update isn't quit as long:

Is that all they fixed?

Well, with those few fixes, I wonder why they bothered creating an update at all. Sounds like the device was working great except for those few 89,217 problems they fixed!

Well

Well there are actually about 7 "problems" that were fixed. The remainder of items in the log are enhancements or items added.
