    Thanks for the heads-up. Having been previously slashed on Garmin’s bleeding edge, I believe I’ll sit back and revisit this thread in a month or so.

    Best,

    I think there's different software numbers for Windows and Mac.

    Yes, the MAC version seems to be 6.0.0.0 too. My Garmin Express just updated, after the maps updated.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I spent this rainy Saturday updating all 4 of my Garmins. What's always interesting to me is the difference in file sizes of the map update between the various units I own. At least this update was fairly painless, and only the Montana also included a system software update as well as a map update.

    I updated my Nuvi today but since it's winter I'll wait awhile before updating the Navigators, just in case there's a bug with the map update.

    I used the Nuvi when driving to Kansas City last week and everything with the map update looked OK so I updated both Nav Vs today.
    I happened to tap the map screen and saw a search icon show up in the upper right corner.
    When I tap that I get a bunch of options like gas, restaurants, motels, ect.
    I never noticed the search icon before. Is it new?

    Updated mine last week and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.

    That search icon, and the rest on that page, are nothing new.

    Looks like I don't touch the screen very often when it's in map view.
