Craches are gone, but the map update in the Geocache profile is very slow. Zooming in and out.
Did report this to the Beta team.

Noted

Have you found a link to down load the v3.4 zip file rather than go through G Express?

(I can't use the latter as I am not near a pc. I can load direct though)

Got a reply from owner of gpsinformation.net web site

This is the place to go for the pure update file

I have loaded it ok onto my 750 and it seems ok

Ps the usual process of renaming the file applies

There is an irritating bug in v3.40 when using Classic Mode:
  • Open the Map
  • Tap the Menu and then Setup Map
  • Go back and close the Map
  • The Dashboard on the Main Page is gone now and you can't get it back unless you restart

Bug 18 posted (in Common Issues).

Thank You!

BTW: Selecting Setup > System > Mode > Activity, then Setup > System > Mode > Classic will restore the dashboard without restarting the device.
