Good, informative review. Does the transition shield get dark enough for the good Texas sun? Or is it a light shade of gray?

Recalc might just fix it

You might just have the fix, BMWHD. I did a recalculate on the route before downloading the route into the GPS. It seems to have downloaded a correct, uncorrupted route. This just may do it.
