    I think this depends on distance to destination, not on language. Your destination is too near and nuvi suggests, that you can get there by foot
    But select "drive" and proceed.

    I also vastly prefer 34xx over 37xx. However the succinct advice by aekhong 'Just try it' is correct. There are whole threads in Noeman and elsewhere devoted to problems experienced by some users due to satellite accuracy problems after conversion. In some cases minor and dismissible, as found by both myself and Kanopus with our converts, but there are many more reports of accuracy loss severe enough to be concerning. Perhaps that's because the ones not having such problems aren't reporting it, and the others are. Read this thread: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and then decide for yourself. It's now very easy for novices to convert and reconvert using the sd method. Heed the advice about NV backup and you won't risk anything. If unhappy you can always come back to 3790. Apart from the 34xx features already mentioned, such as Guidance 3 navigation, there's Android Smartphone link, and you can enable extras such as Video & mp3 players, so you may wish to read this thread also: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    Thanks for the info. I've tried flashing over 7.10 34xx and was successful. Reading the 1st post, copying over all xml files over to the Garmin directory will enable all features if I have 7.10 and older versions. I restarted the nuvi and the features in the Apps folder don't show up, what have I missed here? I'm not really sure if the xml files won't work in 7.10 because it is said in the first paragraph in the green note in the OP that "since sw 7.10" it is not supported but in the second paragraph it says "If you flashed the old firmware 7.10". The first paragraph means 7.10 does not support those xml files but the second paragraph says it does, so which is which?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I tried downgrading to 7.00 and it still didn't work and then I tried 6.20 and the xml copy method worked just fine, I have all the features enabled now. This means that since 7.00 (not 7.10) the enable features application is not working.

    Yep, that also means that you did it the hard way, not using the sd card method which can enable the features as well as i suggested:

    So you either missed that, or this in Post #1:

    Another way to convert 34xx with logo and enable features :

    Flash full 34xx firmware
    Unpack the file to an empty SD card, turn nuvi off, insert card, turn nuvi on.
    remove sd

    and to return to 37xx ,its logo included:
    Flash full 37xx firmware
    same as above,unpack the file to an empty SD card, turn nuvi off, insert card, turn nuvi on.
    remove sd

    Download: Udated on 13.10.2012
    added Video Player and Premium Point Addressing and updated Ldr.bin
    .......
    Or you just wanted to do it the hard way for the experience and that's ok. No problem anyway, you got there in the end and that's the main thing .

    While on that subject, about the enabling of features via xml: my recollection is that it could be done with v7.10 fw, but not with anything after that and i see no contradiction between the two statements in Para 1 & 2. They both mean that v7.10 fw and earlier works by xml method, but later versions don't work (i.e. from 7.20). Not sure why it didn't happen with 7.10 for you ...?
    EDIT: Downgraded to 7.10 overnight and xml method won't work, downgraded further to 6.50 and worked. You're right .. sorry. I see Caty has already fixed Post #1.

    Didn't actually miss it. My problem is that I can't go out of the house to buy a microsd card so I had no choice but to do it the hard way

    I'm not really sure why it didn't work for me with 7.10 but I repeatedly tried and confirmed that it didn't work and even with 7.00. This made me guess that 7.xx, starting from 7.00, don't allow xml files to enable features anymore.

    Ok, now I understand. But.... that means no NV backup done as 3790 i guess. Tut tut... and now i know why your nick was familiar, the nv backup thread (the penny just dropped).

    Yeah. I figured that since I haven't backed up it in the past when I tried an SG/Mal 3790 firmware, then if I back it up now it isn't a virgin NV backup anyway. Still, I will buy a microsd asap to backup my NV. Is it useless to backup my NV when I'm using a 34xx firmware for my 3790? Should I revert to 37xx first?

    Great! Thanks aekhong for the info

    I can't believe that I don't have a simple microsd yet I have a NAS server that has a 15TB storage space, lol.

    Do an NV backup of your unit as 3490 after clearing non-vol a couple of times. That will protect you as 3490. If you then go back to 37, do the same. Non-vol backup is always worthwhile, but like any insurance you really hope you don't need it.

    PS: I'll swap you a few 4GiB microSDs for that NAS of yours...
