New firmware for nuvi 2x5W!!! V 7.70

Notified by GE today.

nuvi 2x5W (GCD File) software version 7.70
as of July 29, 2015
(8.91 MB)

Change History
Changes made from version 7.60 to 7.70:

Improved UI responsiveness in some situations.

Fixed issues that could prevent users from accessing downloadable content when using Garmin Express.

Fixed an issue that could allow the PIN entry to be bypassed when Garmin Lock is turned on.

Improved software stability.

This is also compatible with other units of that era (2010?)
but I don't know which ones exactly.

Amazing

for a device that was released 7 1/2 years ago exclaim

I noticed that when I updated the 265 and was also a little surprised .

Wow that is surprising

I suspect the only reason they did this upgrade is because of the compatibility issue with Garmin Express.

I would appreciate knowing from the brave souls who have upgraded if we're still able to use multiple vias when entering a destination.

Gotta check my trusty old 855

Gotta check my trusty old 855 backup GPS to see if they also have any updates when I load the 2016.10 map.

Nothing on either my 855 or 755T. And I had no compatibility issues with these devices on Garmin Express.

Same here..

Nothing for my 855.

Hey - 7.70 is available for my old 255

There is a shinny new version 7.70 waiting for my old 255

Still there for 265

Just for information.I put in a route for my 265 today using the simulation mode. Added five via points to the route. Verifying the navigation directions all the via points showed up as inputed.The question came up about losing this option of adding more then one via point after the new update 7.70 was released by Garmin. The 2x5 and some 2x0 has a hidden benefit of being able to add more then one via point.

If you duplicate the process make sure to allow each via point to recalculate the route before adding another one.

new firmware

Not bad for a really old device that I bought in July 2010. Finally this week I called customer support and eventually got lifetime traffic enabled as well (for the first time) for the nüvi 265WT model.

All in all, things are looking up.

Latest version is now 7.80
