(This version can be downloaded from: Garmin Support Download Section)
Ver. 4.58 - When receiving a waypoint from NMEA input, initializes the waypoint symbol to a simple dot.
Updated magnetic variation tables based on the new IGRF 2000 model.
Corrected Loran TD position format secondary station "W - Whisky" for chain number GRI-9960.
NOTE: GPS 48 database and the new Waterways and Lights CD - from Art Dalton of Prairie Geomatics Ltd
I heard there was some confusion about the updatable database in the 48. I have the new Waterways and Lights CD and a new 48 with the latest firmware so I checked it out myself. Here's what I found:
The Waterways & Lights CD allows you to install a special program which lets you update the internal city/marine database in a GPS48 connected to your PC. I tried this and swapped the North American database for a Europe database, then did it again for Africa. The cities/towns get swapped as well, not just the navaids. I checked this by using the find city function and looking at the lists, as well as by zooming and panning around the screen a bit.
This is something new for Garmin and leads me to suspect that perhaps we'll be able to do this with the city databases in the 12XL, 12CX or II+ in future if Garmin added a similiar program to the WorldMap or some future CD.
