The upgrade is still working well.

No problems with route sharing with v4.60 software
No problems with Media Player, Spotify via Android

Still not sorted the Portrait Screen display problem
Large Motorcycle keyboard does not load up keyboards except A-I and the symbols keyboard. Selecting 0-9 causes the system to shut off.
QWERTY keyboard works OK.

Connects Ok with BaseCamp and quickly. Files transfer and read ok. In spite of getting the communication error in MAss Storage or MTP mode. Doesn't matter. It works.

All great stuff. Nothing stopping me from using it.

Thank you

Aha - just fixed this keyboard issue.
* Deleted all of the files from the 'keyboard' folder in Internal Storage.
* Loaded the Garmin Express 6.19.4.0 and ran it.
* In Tools and Content / Utilities / Other Files at the bottom of a list of Audio and Vehicles files was a keyboard file for 595.
* Installed that using Garmin Express.
* On power up, Zumo wanted to install software.

* When it had finished I switched on the British English Large Buttons and saved.

Entering text in the where to now search now reveals a large button keypad which has 3 rows arrange in QWERTY keyboard layout, which is left-right scrollable with < and > keys. Very different from the original 590 keypad which it had tried to display.

The keyboard folder on the Zumo is now repopulated with a new set of files.


Glad I kept the original 590 files though. I might need them at some point.

Long time ago I wrote a small article about the Garmin Basecamp communication problem on the old Zumoforum, luckily someone quoted it on the forum here in this thread:

for more information look here

Making the file GarminDevice.xml read-only is somewhat akward, but needs only be done during updates for firmware or maps etc.,

On a Mac the Basecamp communication seems not to be an issue btw.
