Hey, OldGeezer, I loaded Ver. 7.50 and now have 2 hours of Bluetooth navigation without a reboot. Yeehaa! That's the longest I've gone with any of the DS 55's. Maybe, it was the fix (fingers crossed). If I get a reboot with the new software I'll post it here.
Sorry, I didn't mean to offend. You are right, I know nothing about your business, so I should have just not posted rather than making a useless suggestion. I hope you can find something that works.
It could show up any time. The CN EU 2019.10 NTU map was released June 6, 2018, so Garmin was just as "late" last year.

It has nothing to do with the maps. The FM traffic is limited by a very slow data rate - similar to an old 300 baud modem, if you're old enough to remember those days ;) It piggybacks on selected regular FM radio station signals. So there just isn't enough bandwith to provide much data, and it is therefore limited to major roads in your immediate area.
The newer HD traffic still uses FM radio signals and also has a slow data rate, but faster than the old FM system.
The smartphone traffic uses a "real" data connection that can deliver much more data that covers a larger area.
To get the .system folder and files to show you need to change your device from MTP mode to mass storage mode.

I was in a store that had a eTrex 20x in stock. I took a look at it and it has tide data. I think this must ba a matter of which market it's for with tide data in the US but not the UK.
Tell me about it.I know those magnetic mounts are quite strong. Sometimes it is difficult to remove my 3597 without pulling the cradle socket off of the ball mount.
I always use my left hand to push back on the cradle, and even use a kind of twisting motion to assist. Sometimes I also push back on the windshield - in order to make sure that it doesn't come with the device.
I would trust my life to that mounting.
I was going to get a 20x for the reasons cited (size and battery life) and also price but eventually found a 30x for only a little more than the cheapest 20x I could find and a lot cheaper than the 64... possibly an early sign of its imminent withdrawal?
30x probably not as popular as 20x. If people are willing to pay the extra cost for the barometric altimeter and magnetic compass, they may go a step further and opt for a GPSMAP 6x or Oregon.
Normally folks complain about the opposite, names instead of numbers :)
