With 1.12 (and 1.08 before that) I could only get the topo lines to show on the 310 if I turned shaded relief on and then back off. Each time I power the unit up.
When I first switch to the summit maps there are no contour lines. The cycle above will get them to show, but requires ~20 clicks of the joystick. Works that way with both Northwest and Midwest maps.
Everything works as it should with the maps from maps4me.

Actually I've just received the pictures so far, but I'm supposed to be getting the update today and I'll be checking it out on my 310 as soon as I receive it and yes I do have the Summit Maps loaded on it.

Thanks. Have you used it with the optional Summit maps?

Very nice David, thank you for the sneak peek. 🙂

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

Let's take a look at the new firmware for the eX310!!!

Notice the new cursor and that it is resizable. Also notice the new keyboard layout. These updates will also be coming to a 510/610/710 near you in the near future!

Wasn't really talking about anyone in particular. Hopefully someone is testing the update and is a bit frustrating to have it show zeros for downloads after a week. Some of the changes do look worthwhile, though it doesn't look like the issues I'm experiencing with my 310 have been addressed yet.
The other betas listed have 12 PC users and 5 Mac users listed as having downloaded.

We (normal users) will never get it if the testers don't go retrieve a copy and find out if it works. This one actually looks like it might have some useful changes.
