    On my 3597, I was offered the 4.70 firmware, keyboards and something called "3597 Language Text". I don't know what that last one is and couldn't really identify any updated file on my 3597 that I could tie to that. I was not offered any voice updates.

    I did not see update for voices either ..

    I think it would really bother me to have it in front of the fuel gauge and speedometer. I actually considered doing that with my 3550 and rejected the idea.

    I think I fould the tile it created for the "3597 Language Text" Update. It \Garmin\D415903.zip. Not sure what it is for. Looking at it with WinZip, it contains a folder Text with a number of .glx files for various languages.

    Edit: Ok, after booting the nuvi a couple of times, I see these got unzipped into the \Text folder on the nuvi.

    Yeah .. It's kind of very close to your face ...
    I think it will be ok with my 3490LMT since it's way smaller profile.

    BTW .. does anybody see anything change or improvement after the update ....?

    One addition that I'll find useful is the ability to delete ALL trips or Multiple trips at one time. The change brings trip management into the same screen layout and functionality as Saved Places management.

    I wonder what the "improved search functions" means?

    Be careful with that enhancement "◦Improved map display performance in heavy traffic situations."
    In Garmins world it usually means less stuff shown on the map (like loss of details at higher zoom).

    Btw there is also an update for the 2597 nuvi with almost the same changelog except for the improved search functions and adds support for the garmin BC30 Wireless Backup Camera.

    Its probably to add the Farsi language.
