It wasn't just the icon that changed, it now starts the find intersection search. It's a different shortcut that I can't find in the shortcut menu to even edit. What's weird is the same type I use for finding fuel was left untouched but since I can't find where that one stored I can't reverse engineer it.

I'll try to post a picture of what they look like.

The Icon you are talking about is not a custom shortcut. It is a WhereTo? app. You put it there by going to Setup->Main Menu->Add->Application->WhereTo?->Intersections

If you do have a custom Shortcut that the Icon has been changed on due to the update, just do the following: Setup->Shortcuts->pick yours->Edit->choose your Icon and back out.

Bingo! I knew it was different from a regular shortcut but couldn't remember exactly how.

Still not sure why it changed though. Where the "Intersection" icon is now is where the "Fuel" icon was before. I initially thought it just changed the icon but it changed it to search for intersection as well.

Thanks!

I put together a few wallpapers images for the Montana.
If anyone would like them go here to download free.
Not trying to make any money just doing it for the fun of it.

Just click on the picture and then the little arrow bottom right of the page to download.

Remember you need 4 images per set so if you like the one called "Map" then you need all 4 pictures.
Once there are download put them in the folder ---- Garmin/profiles ---on the Montana



Map_landscape_day



Map_landscape_night



Map_portrait_day



Map_portrait_day



Thanks
Fred

Cool...of course if you want to save battery when you are handheld, a black background is best (those pixels are off).

Not sure if this is a troll, but...

Black background makes no difference in power consumption. Individual pixels are just liquid-crystal light "valves" letting the backlight through and the backlight power which is orders of magnitude more then the "valves", doesn't change reagardless of what the pixels are doing. The "valve" power change between black and white is almost non-existant (often it takes very slightly more to be black!)- switching the valves takes much more power than just sitting at one level so the power consumption of the "valves" is higher if they're switching a lot but they'll still be way, way less than the backlight...

Just got back from 800+mi trip through the AZ Mogollon Rim on through the White Mtns... not quite to NM but like Sarah, I could see it from my easternmost stop.

Aside from the "acquiring satellites" when map set to fast (with all the aerial imagery it was too slow at "fast" so I didn't feel like running it "normal") I didn't have any big bugs biting.

I ran 5.1 with logging set to one track point per second, about 7.5GB of BirdsEye and like mentioned, "fast" map updates. Arghh, all the BirdsEye reeeeeeeally made for incredibly long boots and the resolution even at "high" just isn't good enough for picking out the trails when the ground cover gets more than thin. Fortunately I had loaded some much higher resoltution .jpgs copied from Google Earth for a couple of the areas I explored.

The "acquiring satellites" bug only hit twice. It seemed like it may have been shortly after either losing the satellites (tunnel) or poor reception (deep canyon) and then reacquiring, but without a satellite log I couldn't tell ya! With SD's I really wish I could log a lot of different things, but I digress...

Am I correct to assume then that the "acquiring" issue is still present? You are using 5.1 and not 5.3?

I thought about loading 5.3 but didn't feel like doing verification testing on this trip since I knew I'd have very little down time and it would be hard to do PC access if I ran into larger annoyances, so I don't know if it's present with 5.3. It definitely popped up while I was on the trip using 5.1 but it wasn't much of a big deal - only twice in all those miles (at least that I noticed) and both while doing two-lane highway on the way home. I was sort of lucky and noticed right away and just power cycled the unit both times although like mentioned power-ups take minutes with a lot of BirdsEye...

Montana's working perfectly with 5.3 and my auxiliary 78s works nicely to show geocaches along the way.
