    G, are you saying that the Oregon/Montana fw has a fault and cannot read some FIDs? e.g. 3220 > ?

    Edit:

    I assume this is the thread concerned (see post #14):

    Also see post #18 en #22: these posters eventually reinstalled the 3.70 firmware and then the CNE 2014.40 and everything worked fine thereafter...

    On other forums, people report that legal and other types of maps, like OpenStreetMap, also suffer form this problem. If all these people speak the truth about the legality of their maps, this points more to a firmware issue. One person said he heard from a reliable source that there is no validity check

    Hi,

    On my opinion, Garmin new map authentication process is a reality, but is not perfect yet and disable both pirated and some legitimate maps.

    I agree...Garmin does not intentionally block the free maps from working
    but still to fear that they will get new idea to stop UnLocked map working

    Btw as I trust Oregon 6xx wiki and I've read this:
    babj615 about 17 hours ago
    I see others have already reported it, and now I also am suffering from a bricked Oregon 650t after updating to v3.70.
    I decided to stop testing and went back to previous firmware
    Spoiler: wiki post link

    NOTE: I moved posts regarding new Oregon firmware from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] here.
