Drive updates to improve BC 40 reliability

 

My DriveLuxe 51 has a software update to v6.10 and there are likely updates for all the Drive models that can accept the BC 40 camera:

DriveLuxe 51 software version 6.10 as of May 6, 2019
Changes made from version 6.00 to 6.10:
Improved the reliability of connections to BC 40 backup cameras.

DriveSmart 65

The Garmin Drive App advised me about the update for the 65, and it was done done directly to the DS 65 without using Garmin Express.

After the update the system has worked without any problems.

6.10 Seems To Be An Improvement

Since installing 6.10 the connection delay between the DriveSmart 51LMT-S and the BC-40 seems to be diminished. This is of course anecdotal as I don't really remember how much slower it used to be.

At the grocery store there is a distant parking spot that I always use. When backing in (and leaving) with 6.00 the GPS and camera would never connect. Based on one event the connection now works with a little stuttering.

Are you able to see Galileo Satellites on Drivesmart 51 after the update?

Yes

Yes. IIRC it used Galileo sats w/ 6.00 and 6.10 now.
