    I also get them but I haven't figured out exactly what they have done for me. No noticable changes anyway. Usually if it aint broke I say don't fix it. Sometimes updates aren't to your advantage ie. the windows update that verifies you have a legit copy on your computer.(I do but that's not the point)

    I do, I mostly use it to download all my routes, waypoints, tracks, etc. Really nice to be able to pull the GPS out of the boat and plug it into mapsource and see all the tracks. You can also preplan a route and upload it to the GPS. I have one problem with mine. I uploaded the tide tables but can't seem to get them to display when I am out there.

    Hey Alaska Gray, check out this forum. This is where I get the best and most up-to-date info on my Garmin: http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?
