I would imagine it would be for all Garmin GPS units that have a Blue-tooth feature... I have a Zumo 550 and I picked up this update this morning... Garmin WebUpdater will identify your unit and show available updates for your unit.. http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/

Ek het verskeie Garmins, waaronder 'n Zumo 500 en my ondervinding is: "dat jy nie moet krap as dit nie jeuk nie". As die GPS foutloos werk - hoekom is dit nodig om die 'update' te doen? Attie

Hoekom doen jy 'n software update op jou RT? Firmware updates is maar net software wat ge-update word om die Unit beter te laat werk... Hierdie update details: Firmware Update for zumo Bluetooth Module (GCD file) software version 3.40 Changes made from version 3.10 to 3.40: * Made general improvements in hands-free operation. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=1867

Hi Attie Updates often include security fixes. Your bluetooth may be vulnerable to 'bluejacking', or you may lose all you data under circumstances that the updates might be fixing. As a trivial example: although it does not itch for them, people running older version of internet browser (for e.g. IE5 etc) are partially responsible for the virus and spam problem we have on the internet. If they kept their systems upgraded, we would be able to reduce the problem.

I've done the update and I have just tested my Bluetooth connection to my phone and headset... No issues for me ;-)
