Sorry, you're right. It's my BaseCamp gremlin. Naive of me to expect Garmin to make the 590 consistent and I didn't check the receiver itself.

Where I live there are, primarily, only minor roads according to Garmin, and they disappear at .8 miles on my 590. Where this is really annoying is when trying to dodge thunder storms or ugly...

I had the same problem. A new battery was the solution. Rather than do a warranty return (they wanted the whole unit, cradles and all), I just bought one and sent Garmin a nasty letter.

BaseCamp 4.4.3 is the latest Mac version, yet to be updated. It suffered from many of the failings as it's PC cousin. Hopefully a new release for the Mac is on the horizon.

Sounds like the "Seasonal Road Closure" avoidance is checked in the activity you're using. IIRC, Monitor is closed in the winter. One of my favourite Sierra routes.

It's the first step in the process when you open the Tire Pressure App. "Select Vehicle Type". You're given options for 2, 3 with multiple configurations, or 4 wheels.
