If you are unsure whether the problems from map or firmware, you can try remove the updated map away then try again.

Dear All,
My existing software version is SgMy 2.80, Audio 1.10 and GPS SW 3.90b running on 255W
I'm trying update the software via myDashboard until the stage of Accept Agreement,
seem like the process not running and given message "Completed Software Updating".

Try restart my laptop/computer and check back myDashboard the message "A software update is available" still appear.

Any help will appreciate.

Thank You Very Much.

Have you tried the "Clearing User Data" procedure as mentioned at page 54 in Nuvi 800 series owner's manual: http://www.garmin.com/manuals/2535_OwnersManual.pdf

As long as your Nuvi is running on latest softwares, my advice is just ignore myDashboard.

Hold on a second, don't update your Windows 7 just yet with 6.16.1!

I updated my Windows 7 Home and wanting to create a route between 2 points.

It crashed consistently so I am reverting back to my 6.14.1 and wait a while. It has been reported to Garmin, God knows what they are going to do with this new version.....

Still the 6.13.7 (Blank POIs with MFM) and 6.14.1 (This is OK for MFM POIs) are the best for Win7 on my Acer 3810T
