slow reading of SD card?

I keep a lot of routes (more than 150) on my SD card and it was getting slower and slower. Today I went to add some new routes for an upcoming trip and when I hit "Routes" under "Import Data," it took about 6 minutes to populate the screen with choices and none of them were the GPX files I had just ...

Re: 660 in endless 'Updating GPS Firmware. 1%' loop

I wonder if this is related. When I went to update my maps two days ago, Express said my 660 needed a firmware update. This struck me as odd because as far as I know v5.10 is the last and latest version and has not been updated for a long time. Express did not give me the option of skipping the firm...

Re: Garmin Express Update failed

Update, I went to the Garmin website and downloaded the new version direct. Now running 6.16.0.0. I did that on my MacBook and My iMac. The interesting thing is that the program, wanted to download version 6.16.0.1. Which has been the norm for several other versions if you down load from the progra...

Re: WNRO (week number roll over) bug once battery removed

Thank you for the heads up. The update went very quickly, after a minor glitch in which the zumo kept rebooting instead of mounting on my desktop. I worked around that by powering up and letting it acquire satellites before plugging it into the USB port.

Re: WNRO (week number roll over) bug once battery removed

Did you do a master reset after updating the firmware? No. Never had to do one after a firmware update before. Never had to do one after map updates, either. The only time a master reset has been needed over the last ~10 years was to change cell phones or bluetooth headsets. (Specifically, to delet...

Re: WNRO (week number roll over) bug once battery removed

...Updating the firmware two weeks ago did not, as I'd hoped matter. Since then, I've found the Zumo to be less than reliable for navigation. Should NOT be due to the new mapset based on the roads it can no longer find. Frustrating!... Did you do a master reset after updating the firmware? It is no...

Re: WNRO (week number roll over) bug once battery removed

Has anyone tried connecting the zumo to a power supply and then removing the battery? Does that prevent the problem?

Re: WNRO (week number roll over) bug once battery removed

Thank you very much for posting this. I was about to pop out my battery to transfer a bunch of routes for an upcoming trip to my micro-SD card. After reading this topic, I will definitely put up with the glacial USB transfer instead and be very careful not to jiggle the battery while doing so.

Re: New routing flakiness

axil, Thanks. I like to dive into the XML and edit filenames and also arrange things by trips and create dividers in the GPX folder on my SD card, but none of that has any bearing on how the route behaves; it's just easier for my brain to follow when I'm on the road. (You can make dividers by using ...
