I heard from a guy on Facebook who says Garmin asked him to test 5.3 specifically wrt the problem. He had reported it to them back in 5.1.

I went ahead and loaded up 5.30 but haven't had time to try it out. Right in the middle of a motor swap on my Strom.

Shaping points

Just loaded up 5.3 and after a couple master resets I got the speed limit back. (it disappeared after the initial upgrade)

Is anyone else having issues with shaping point still alerting after you mark them as "won't alert" in the routing properties? It's rather annoying.

Only the zumo's support Shaping Points.

So I guess there is no good reason why they never announced prior to 5.2?

Hot Montana 600 quit working today. Was riding along in about 95F sunny skies and it started reverting to 20 ft read out. Then quit responding to attempts. Turned it off for a few miles then back on. Main screen came up and no response. Now cooling off in the garage. Anyone have had this problem.

Could this be related to a screen protector??

There has been a problem with the screen protector shrinking on expanding in the heat.

Sounds like that to me. An extreme case.

Updated to 5.3 and CNNT 2014.2

I've got a couple 1k mile plus rides in the next few days, so I decided to update the Montana to 5.3 firmware (Master Reset performed), and 2014.2 of the maps. for the first trip I have 21 'bonus' locations to hit in Eastern WA. For the second trip I have 5 all over Oregon. This should give a good work out to the 5.3 firmware. If it doesn't work, I'll go back to 4.7 which has been rock solid for me. I'll post my results sometime next week.

Excellent! Make sure you have Map Speed = Fast for those tests!

Wish for timed auto power off function. Tired of dead battery(s) from leaving it on. Many other battery operated devices have this feature and it's very useful and would be extremely easy to implement on a GPS... Oh well...

So, you want a "Power Off if no movement in 2hours" feature?
