Got offered this version as well, but no change log in Garmin Express. Such a silly policy of Garmin to not publish a change log when the update is made available ... smh. Asked Garmin Support US via chat but the person I spoke with didn't know anything about a 6.60 version being available.

It says:
Added the ability to edit existing map downloads through Outdoor Maps+
What does this mean? I have gone into Outdoor Maps+ and then hit Menu and it comes up with "Configure Raster Maps". This then allows me to make satellite imagary brighter, but I think that feature was there before.

Means exactly what it says. Previously, if you wanted to make any changes to an existing map set, you had to delete it and stay over. Now you can edit them!

Thanks for your reply

Sorry but I am still getting to know my 67 and this upgrade came in the middle so I don't recall what was there before. To what extent can you edit a map set? I can turn individual maps on and off but not sure what else you can do with them on the unit.

What I would really like to do is change the level that one map I have comes in on. When this particular map is on, it comes in over top of the Birdseye imigary. I have to turn it off to see Birdseye. Another map I have does not appear at all, even when I have every map turned off. It seems to have a lower priority than even the back ground.
