Change History:

Version 3.50 to 3.60:

1.  Modified "Place of Worship" and cemetery symbols.

4.  Fixed problem with potential shutdown when using really old Almanac data.

5.  Corrected problem with Australian celestial moon phase calculations.

6.  Corrected potential error when using WAAS in Europe.

7.  Corrected a problem with UPS grid conversions in zones B and Z.

8.  Changed software version number to 3.60.

Version 3.40 to 3.50:

1.  Changed to protect non-volatile memory corruption in
	areas with multiple WAAS satellites visible.

2.  Changed to prevent delays when using differential GPS.

	to determine its internal temperature.

2.  Changed software version number to 3.40.

Version 3.20 to 3.30:

1.  Added new translations for the French language.

2.  Improved WAAS/EGNOS satellite selection algorithm to select the satellite with 
    the most beneficial corrections given the unit's current position. Units will 
    not use a WAAS/EGNOS satellite if the unit's current position is outside of a 
    given WAAS/EGNOS satellite's service volume.

3.  Fixed a problem that caused the NMEA GPGSV sentence to not be compliant with
    the NMEA 0183 v3.01 Standard.

4.  Changed software version number to 3.30.

Version 3.10 to 3.20:

1.  Added Croatian map datum.

2.  Changed software version number to 3.20.

Version 3.02 to 3.10:

1.  Implemented position Auto Averaging support.

2.  "Track Log Full" message is now displayed when the Track Recording Mode is 
    set to "Fill" and there is no more space left to record track points.

3.  Added new metric version of Nautical units that underflows distance 
    measurements to meters instead of feet.

4.  Elevation units no longer overflow to a larger unit of measure when the value 
    gets large.  For example, if you are using Statute units and your elevation 
    rolls over from 999 ft to 1000 ft, the unit will now display 1000 ft, 
    rather than 1.0 kft.

5.  Changed software version number to 3.10.

Version 3.01 to 3.02:

1.	Improved EPE calculations when using WAAS.

2. 	Corrected differential status message bug that occurred when 
	using the "Other DGPS" communications format.

3.	Modified waypoint review page to display maximum depth when 
	entered depth is greater than maximum allowed.

Version 3.00 to 3.01:

1.	Added support for handling input of NMEA DBT depth sentence.

2.  Implemented new Advanced NMEA setup item for setting the Waypoint ID 
	output format.  This should allow for backwards compatibility with a 
	wider range of NMEA driven products, including some older AutoPilots.

3.	Corrected possible highway page lockup bug.

4. 	Corrected "Light" string translation for Danish language so that 
	it now properly indicates reference to the unit's backlight.

5.	Improved Store Demonstration Mode behavior for language 
	selection and backlight level settings.
6.	Removed general hotel reservation phone number from Metro Guide 
	data review pages, as the number is no longer valid.

7. 	Fixed an error that prevented the Arrival alarm from 
	re-triggering during a Go To operation if the distance 
	option was selected and the distance value was changed.

	vertical drawn when the view is zoomed to 20ft.

9.	Corrected the case usage in map setup page.

10.	Corrected the anchor drag alarm so that it will go off again after leaving 
	the alarm circle then coming back in.
11.	Corrected the possible lockup bug in backlight in Disclaimer page.

12.	Corrected the set year page forces the year to 2000 if year less than 2000 is entered.

13.	Corrected the map so that it won't have expiring unlocks.

14.	Changed software version number to 3.01.

Version 2.02 to 3.00:

1.  Allow individual classes of NMEA sentences to be enabled 
    and disabled.

2.  Added support for GPBWC, GPXTE and GPVTG NMEA sentences.

    automatically initiate navigation of that route.
8.  Added RT-90 Grid.

9.  Improved appearance of directional pointer data field.

10. Fixed TracBack point review page problem that caused
    an invalid position to be displayed.

11. Corrected differential status text discrepency between 
	GPS page and Com page.

12. Reduced the amount of path smoothing done when saving 

13. Changed skyview moon on celestial page from crescent shape 
	to a half-moon shape to avoid confusion that the skyview is 
	trying to show the actual moon phase.

14. Fixed GPS page Signal-to-Noise Ratio update problem that occured 
	if the unit was receiving RTCM signal while the protocol was 
	switched from RTCM to some other protocol not supporting RTCM.

15. Added support for RTCM In/NMEA Out serial data format.

16. Changed "Serial #" to "Unit ID" on System Information page.

17. User waypoint depth is now always initialized to invalid instead of 
	0.0 if a valid depth is not being received via NMEA input.

18. Some position grids now have a fixed map datum associated with them,
	meaning the user cannot configure the map datum when some grids are 

19. Corrected the use of magnetic variation in the GPBOD (application 
	to bearing) and GPRMB NMEA output sentences so that the Auto Mag 
	Var value is used unless the unit is set to User Mag Var, in which
	case it should use the user's value.

20. Improved responsiveness of GPS positioning in shaded conditions.

21. Changed both Swedish and new RT-90 grid text outputs to display 
	the northing on top and the easting on bottom, which is reversed 
	from the way it was previously displayed.  Also, 'X' and 'Y' are 
	now used to indicate northing and easting instead of 'N' and 'O' 
Version 2.01 to 2.02:

1. Fixed line drawing problem associated with map-based 
   distance measurement utility.

2. Improved speed and reliability of AutoLocate operation.

3. Added power-on GPS Information popup page.

4. Removed "Stop Navigation" confirmation message.

5. Daylight Savings Time is now taken into effect in tide 

6. The COM 2 NMEA Input problem has been fixed.  This was 
   caused by not properly detecting that the interface for 
   COM 1 had been set to a value that allowed NMEA input on 
   COM 2.

7. Improved TracBack waypoint name generation.

8. Added poor coverage icon display at power-up, to be used 
   as an indication of when a valid fix has been obtained.

    and Destinations waypoints are now always drawn on top of 
    non-navigation related waypoints.

13. Map settings now stored in nonvolatile memory when the map 
    setup page is closed to ensure that any changed settings aren't 
    lost if power is interrupted.

14. Implemented a timeout that causes the map popup window containing 
    the scanned item's name to close.

15. "Go From" navigation point is now being stored in nonvolatile 
     memory in order to ensure that it isn't lost if there is an 
     unexpected power interruption.

16. Incorporated a map refresh after transitioning from one active 
    route leg to the next.

17. Fixed rounding errors that occurred when storing active track points.

18. New user waypoints are now created with invalid depth instead of a 
    value of 0 (zero).

19. Change the name of the existing "Hu-Tzu-Shan" map datum to "Taiwan".  
    Added a new datum entry named "Hu-Tzu-Shan" which conforms to the 
    published Taiwan map datum definition.

20. Added ability to Start/Stop the Simulator from the GPS Info Page. 

21. Added International and United States versions of the Diver Down 
    user waypoint symbol.  The pre-existing Diver Down symbol is now 
    named Man Overboard.

		a) Don't display charts with Tide data that has excessive error.
		b) Corrected secondary station bias calculations.

		   cursor label on the Tide chart.

   Go-To navigation mode.

Upload Instructions:

Instructions for uploading the new software to your GPS using Microsoft
Windows 95 or later:

1.  Download the appropriate self-extracting archive file onto your hard drive.

2.  Unzip the files in the archive by running the downloaded executable file.

3.  Connect your unit to a free serial port (Com 1, 2, 3, or 4) on your PC with
    a PC interface cable.

4.  Turn on your unit and ensure the Serial Data Format is set to "Garmin Data
	Transfer". You can find this setting in the Main Menu on the "Comm" tab.

5.  Change to the directory in which you unzipped the files, (i.e., C:\GARMIN),
    and run the update program, updater.exe.  Select the appropriate serial
    port and click "OK" to begin the software upload.
    During the upload, the display will indicate "Software Loading...."
    The upload process should take 2-5 minutes to complete. When the upload
    is completed, the unit will reset itself and turn on normally.
