Improved accuracy and performance of the calculation of tide and current station information.
Silenced 'Remove Lost Target' message when the AIS/Collision Alarm is off.

New map symbols
Automotive Mode:
Fixed a potential issue that causes the GMap6x0 to display an inaccurate ETA when the route crosses west across time zones.
Fixed a potential issue that could cause a 'stutter' when speaking driving directions.
The GMap6x0 will no longer erroneously prompt to copy Garmin proprietary POI information (such as Travel Guides) from the card. This information is locked to the card and cannot be accessed without the card inserted.
Added support to display cartography north of 75N.
Improved routing accuracy for ramps and interchanges.

Changes made from version 3.00 to 3.10:
Corrected rotation of animated current arrows when map is in Head Up orientation.
Improved presentation of light sectors on g2 navigation charts by adding 'Auto' setting option to Menu > Navigation Chart Setup > Chart Appearance > Symbols > Light Sectors. The automatic light sector control determines the best zoom levels to draw light sectors.
Added ability to display navaid light information on g2 navigation charts.
Added option to disable message banner alarm notification when AIS vessels become dangerous. This will help alleviate annoyance when navigating congested waterways with many AIS-equipped vessels. When the AIS Alarm is set to Off, dangerous targets will still display on charts. Unacknowledged dangerous AIS targets will turn red and blink.
Potentially dangerous points along auto guidance paths will be outlined in red. After the auto guidance calculation completes, a message will appear if there are potentially unsafe areas along the path.
Fixed an issue that could cause 3D pages to stop updating the view at very slow speeds.
Changed the nature of seabed areas to simply label the area instead of drawing a circle and label.
Updated the symbol highlighting on the chart to use the correct symbol size.
Added the blue and black direction lines for orthogonal photo points.

Changes made from version 2.60 to 3.00:
Fixed potential lock-up when autorouting with XM connected.
Added support for GB Discoverer charts.
Expanded control of navigation leg transition to include a time-based choice.
Improved waypoint marking interface to minimize map obstruction. The unit will no longer display the waypoint review page automatically when marking waypoints on the map. Select the new waypoint's name from the pointing menu to review.
Added route turn angle information to turn scanning text.
Revised weather legends for GPSMAP 640 XM weather charts.
Greatly improved the drawing speed for charts. In most areas users should rarely see a partially drawn map when zooming and panning.
Added continuous smoothing between zoom levels.
Added continuous smoothing of the head-up direction for head-up charts. Head-up users will find this change a remarkable improvement in performance.
Add ability to choose the label display for waypoints by symbol. User can choose to show labels for waypoints of a particular symbol with the waypoint name, comment, or symbol only.
Waypoints can now be turned off on charts by symbol. This allows the waypoints on the map to be quickly limited to those of interest for the boater's current activity.
Added option for a compass tape at the top of the screen.
Added all supporting features for the latest g2 and g2 Vision, including user control of bathymetric contour shading.
Added a perspective 3D display of charts for people who do not have g2 Vision cards.

Added range, bearing, and a graphical pointer to waypoint review pages.
Use a solid line for AIS vessel heading and a dashed line for course over ground.
Added user-controlled trails for AIS and DSC vessels.
Added connecting legs over shallow areas at the beginning and end of the path. This allows the boater to auto guide to a shore-based service. The unit will sound an alarm when the boat approaches the shallow leg.
Added a control for shore-line proximity tolerance which allows the user to choose tighter margins for passage through narrow channels or set a larger distance margin from the shoreline.
When following Autoguidance, added a navigation option to recalculate Autoguidance to the current destination from the boat's current position.

Changes made from version 2.50 to 2.60:
Corrected potential issue that may cause the unit to lock up or shut down if a GPS database file becomes too old.
Added charging state timeout to automotive mode. The unit will now shut down completely after being on the automotive charging page for 30 minutes. This mimics the behavior already used in marine mode.
Corrected issue with insufficient space for speed limit display. When the speed limit sign tried to display 3 digits (currently only possible in Kilometer mode), the unit would only display the first 2 digits. For example, 120km/h would show as 12km/h.
Fixed compatibility issues with USB 1.1 hubs.
Marine mode will now display a warning message if recalled BlueChart g2 or g2 Vision card is detected. Please see
