I just wish I'd known, I might have held off on getting my 710 last week!

David,

From what I was lead to believe that the 510 - 610 and 710 will also have new screens. I first gathered this from SIG's referral to new features in the software in the next firmware release.

He stated that the new firmware release will also address a new Panel.

My source mentioned that this new panel will brighter, have a wider viewing angle, a better contrast ratio and a faster response time.

It would be nice to know when these unit will be released so that I can purchase another 610 to see the difference.

This is just a heads up. Today I had to address a question from someone who just purchase a new GC and it came with firmware version 1.8 on it; however, 1.7 is the latest verison released. When talking to Eric at Magellan I learned that Magellan is now shipping these units with a newer update screen, which my eX110 has. I was wondering why it looked different and now I know. The new screen doesn't appear to be as clear inside; however, is easier to read outdoors and this why they're making this move. So, if you have anyone purchasing a newer unit and they have a strange firmware version - you'll know why! The new firmward has the Operating System Drivers for this newer screen and that is the only difference.

David
