    Not sure this is timely anymore since this is an old thread, but for anyone who comes to it, stay away from any unit without an SD or micro SD slot. I have a Dakota 10 without a card slot, and it's driving me crazy after only 2 weeks.

    Hi Catymag!. sorry for my english.
    I have a nuvi 510 (same 500/550) I use in boat and car every weekend, without problem, in my modest opinion is not wonderful but is good GPS. (with some limitation like work with tracks)
    I have two doubts
    1) In firmware revision from version 3.10 to 3.20:
    Garmin added support for raster maps. I not understand the finality or posible use of this.
    2) Acording specification I understand don't have capacity of use Custom Maps (KMZ). o JNX. But with patch firmware or "alternative way", is posible to do that ?
    Thanks!

    Raster mapping is quite different to the Vector mapping which we are more familiar with. By explanation, some comparisons:

    I guess, Nuvi 34** and 35**, since both have 800x480px display. Processor must be pretty power to serve that.
