Did anyone get any feedback after 4 months?

Is garmin working on a better chart, or did they stop to release any new firmware, or are they building a new firmware for gpsmap 68?

It has been 4 months now since the last firmware release, so one could expect another release very soon. However, we will only know what has changed after we install and test it!

This issue (Additional waypoints from multi caches are not loaded )is known since the Oregon 700 (> 3 years!). It's annoying.
It's like having to download gas stations and current traffic information using a .gpx file to your Garmin car GPS before you drive off.
I don't know how the product management at Garmin is organized on this topic. Sometimes it is better to leave out a function than to implement it badly.

Why not publish the firmware as open source and let the community develop better software? I assume that Garmin will be able to sell more of the (good) hardware when improved firmware would be available.

This might be implmented in April 2022. :D
it is very complicated to display only 2 data fileds instead of 4 - so it will take some time

Sorry for my sarkasm :ugeek:
But garmin sucks
