Ken H. Posted May 21, 2010 Share Posted May 21, 2010 If you don’t follow The ZumoForums, there is a new version of software for the 660 out. (Maps too.) Some of the bigger changes: The bug with Autozoom switching off when other vehicle selection items are changed has been fixed. Autozoom now has its own selection button instead of being under Map Orientation. There are two new map view page alternatives. One that emphasizes more data with configurable data boxes down each side of the display, the other that emphases more map with almost nothing else displayed. There are several new data points that can be selected for display on any of the map pages. E.g. – “Miles to Empty.” Still no “Time to Destination” though, only “Estimated Time of Arrival.” The original Standard view map page stays the same but it now displays the map scale. This was a biggy for me. There is now a Recalculate icon on the main Menu page to force a recalculation even if you are not off route. (Or are but chose not to do a recalculate earlier in the route.) If you are actually off route though and have auto recalculate turned off and “prompt” turned on, the prompt page still never times out like it did on some of the older models. At some point you have to press Yes or No to get back to a map page. The issue with some routes having to be recalculated even if they were created in MapSource with the same version of maps has been fixed. The issue with waypoints created in MapSource then sent to the 660 and then waypoint symbols not staying the same seems to still be there though. There are now five usage modes – Motorcycle, Automobile, Pedestrian, Scooter and Off Road. The font for waypoints is now bigger and they display at further out zoom levels. The audio player has been moved to the ‘foreground.’ All map pages always have a one button ‘note’ icon always present that takes you directly to the player without having to scroll through the Menu pages. It would be nice though to have a way to kill the icon all together if you are never using the player. Maybe have it disappear when the Media volume is set to 0% or something. Oh well. Corrected a BlueTooth problem with some phones not transferring the phonebook correctly. (I guess. I never had this issue.) Bunch of other little stuff. Overall a worthwhile upgrade IMHO. YMMV.
