Why can't you post the warning here? Just making the users read this?:

Trying really hard to be annoyed, Hans?

Sounds like maybe you didn't even make it to the Firmware page (with links to original discussion and supporting documentation) where the warning is posted?

I know many Oregon 6x0 users frequent this forum and I wanted to share this information with them by providing the source where I first learned about this issue.

I am certain some of them will appreciate it.

As a mod (that also runs resources where I rely on community support) I have to walk a careful line, I'll admit to typing and then discarding a request/warning that it'd have been more tasteful IMHO, to include some amount of the text of the problem and direct links to the discussion.

In the future, please include a more self contained post. Sites like GPSrchive are a tradition of GPS - indeed, most tech topics - but try a more balanced approach that compromises page views and a flow of information.

Garmin 6x0 users upgrading to 5.20 should see the gpsrchive forum discussion and bugreport#80 about garbled background images.

HHL, Atlas Cached - like you - is a long time member here with a long history of helping others. Please be nice.

Hi,
It seems that the etrex 20/30 has a different GPS chipset. It only affects Montana, Oregon 6x0 and Etrex Touch

Regarding this firmware update, does anyone knows exactly what it is?

kindest regards

Hi,

it seems that Garmin gave up from the upgrade 5.20. 

I could not find it with Garmin Express. 

Any news?

Regards
