[Montana 7X0(i)] Firmware 8.20 is out

Bericht door ConiKost »

Firmware 8.20 is out for Montana 700/700i/750i devices. It's currently in stage of being rolled out, so not everyone will get it immediately. Will take a few days until everyone will get it.

Changelog currently unknown.

It seems, there is a new feature called "Map Sets" in 8.20.
You can group multiple maps as one 'Map Set', which can be enabled or disabled and will enable/disable all assigned maps from the choosen "Map Set".
The map switcher on map view is also now different, as it lists all map sets instead of those images for BirdsEye, CN or Topo.

Until now, the advice was to turn on only one routing map for a certain area in combination with the basemap.
If you now enable several routing maps for one area via the Mapset option, do you get any problems with the routing on the gps or not ?

No. This is just an extended function. You still should not enabled multiple maps, if they are doing routing.

Btw, more functions have been added.

With firmware 8.20, there is a folder 'MAPTHEMES' with two *.kmtf files.
If someone maybe remembers, kmtf are theme files for styling the map, which is being used on Zumo devices.
I still don't know, if they really can be used, but sounds cool!

There is also a new option called "Popularity Routing", which can be enabled in the Routing menu.

Why English spoken here? I preferre Dutch while this is a Dutch forum... So, here my share in Dutch:
Ik ben nog(!?) niet in het bezit van een Montana700, maar die map set option lijkt mij een verdomd handige aanvulling.
In je Garmin map van evt. te activeren maps kunnen niet meer dan 15000 maptiles zitten. De rest wordt gewoon niet getoond. En de GPS beslist zelf wel wat ie laat zien....
Even tussendoor: volgens opgave max. SD kaart in Montana700 van 32Gb! Ik geloof daar niks van: 128Gb in Monterra, 64Gb in Oregon750...
Op die 128Gb staan 10 tallen maps: Topos van hier tot Tokyo sorry Tibet, 2 jaargangen OFM van Minko (sommige zoomniveaus hebben "gaatjes") etc.etc. Misschien wel 100000 maptiles. (En nog 60Gb tbv OsmAnd). Ik heb daarom een map, MAPSUIT, in de Garmin map gemaakt en daar zit alles in wat ik niet direct nodig heb. Bij iedere reis sleep ik kaarten in en uit die map. Dat gaat heel erg veel sneller dan steeds bv.10Gb erin pompen. Dat kan in Monterra via bestandsbeheer on the fly (foei) maar Oregon750 moet aan PC.
Met mapsets hoeft dat dus niet meer ??? Ten minste... Dat hoop ik !!!
In mapset France komt OFM, CN EU, TopoFr4.01 en nog wat OSM kaartmateriaal. Voor Denemarken krijg je dan bijna dezelfde mapset maar dan TOPO Danmark ipv TOPO France. Totaal altijd minder dan 15000 maptiles!
Vraagje daarbij is: Weet iemand of ik dit bij het juiste eind heb en heeft iemand 64Gb of 128Gb in z'n Montana700?

.....nog even en er zit een Montana700 ipv Monterra op m'n fiets....

Works. You only have to make sure, that your SD card is formatted with FAT32. Since Windows does not allow formatting >32GB with FAT32, you need to use a external formatting tool. Note: Garmin Express does not allow to installed any maps on Cards > 64GB. This is a bullshit limitation by Garmin (technically it would work!).

Thanks ConiKost for answering. I use to format my SD's with EaseUS and I don't use Express for loading maps. Simple with Windows Explorer.
So I understand one create mapsets and within that mapset one can activate maps or not?
Very nice feature, indeed!

No problem. Will work. Just copy *.img File into 'Garmin' folder on your sd card.
Map will be shown and can be used for a custom map set. A custom map set can contain one or more maps.
Just make sure, your sd card is formatted with FAT32 file system.
All my OSM maps are stored on sd card.
