Drive updates

 

It appears that the Drive models have had updates in the past couple of days.

I don't own a Drive so I can't fire up Garmin Express to update anything but know many of you have Drives:

As always, many thanks are due to the maintainer of the GMapTools site for the information.

Here's a changelog for the DriveSmart 61, for example:

Changes made from version 2.70 to 3.00:

I'm confused, yea I know, not hard to do.

What is this 2.70 to 3.00?

Both of my Drivesmart 61's are at software version 4.50 and the only update since 2020.10 came out was a time zone update.

Aha, in that example, the file was an APAC update and I see now that this means the GPS was an Asia/Pacific model, not a North American GPS. It appears that most/all of these updates don't apply here to North American, European, etc. owners of the devices. Thanks for alerting me to research this further. redface
