    Default Garmin Zumo 340 and "Curvy Road" feature

    Good Evening Everybody.
    I have a question for the GPS Experts ...
    As in Title a friend has a Garmin Zumo 340, in which is not available the "Curvy Road" feature.
    I know that the Zumo 340 shares the same HWID (1473) of 390, and the same firmware too (3.90).
    On Zumo 390 the "Curvy Road" feature is present.
    Why there isn't in the 340? It is, perhaps, a commercial limitation?
    Is there any possibility to activate it in Zumo 340?
    Thanks in advance for any response


    PS: Meanwhile, I asked the content of the file supported_features.html in the \.System\Diag\html folder

    It seems there is a bug in Zumo firmware since sw. 3.60, fixed in 3.70, but every time Zumo updates maps with Express it loses curvy roads feature you'll need to manually restore the firmware after each LifeTime map update
    Additionally:
    Go to apps - trip planner and select a previously created route. Press the icon at top left and a screen opens with list of options, including choice of fastest, shortest or off road .
    Select second option, which is off road, press save, and that option will now display in screen as curvy roads. It does select a different route from fastest route.
    Select 3rd option, shortest distance, save and it shows as off road!
