    Mark, whats the number of the latest software or map version for the 720? I spent hours in a library downloading it but i think it vanished into thin air...and there's nothing on the SD card.
    Thx.

    3450 with the new maps.

    If you are showing 3422, then you probably are still on the old maps.

    The library might have throttled you down. It usually takes 30 minutes or less on a high speed network.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    You did not get updated. You should have about 4.x gb on the SD Card.

    Thanks,

    I would not recommend Wi-Fi to download the maps. It may have downloaded, but did you push the button to push the updates to the TND?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Here is another example of RM crappy routing. Nakusp BC to Colorado Springs CO. All is good till Laurel MT where the routing wants to exit I-90 and take the 212 to the 310 and the 26 to Casper to meet up with I-25 and go to Denver and Colorado Sprgs. This route is 15mi and 15 min longer than staying on I-90 and I-25. This route also has lots of 2 lane roads instead of staying on the Interstates which is far more practical for Semi Trailer traffic.
    I myself have very little faith in RM routing anymore and the need to double check routs all the time is unsatisfactory. I have posted on crappy routing in the past in the hopes that it would get better but it seems RM is more interested in adding bells and whistles than improve the routing algorithms.
    Just my $.002 worth.

    I tried each setting and they all took I90 over to I25 down to Colorado, Springs. Change your setting to prefer freeways and if it still routes you on the 212, then you might have an avoid road/area set on I-25.

    Thanks,
