Not yet for me this morning so my stage will hopefully arrive soon. Hard to be patient as I was happy to see in the other thread about 3.10, which was recalled, that Garmin showed proximity alerts only alerting once is fixed. (Although I have gotten pretty good about remembering to reset it every time). I suppose the list of changes made from version 2.90 to 3.10 are included in version 3.30 even though 3.10 was recalled.

This morning the update showed up for me in Express. Everything seems fine so far. One odd thing that likely I just did not notice before? In addition to the satellite screens for GPS, Galileo, and Glonass, I now also have 2 QZSS satellites. Maybe they were always there and I just did not notice.

Right at the moment they have moved away and are not being shown.

Ahh, yes, you will occasionally see QZSS satellites from your location! The GPSMAP 66sr has always been able to display these.

If we use a Satellite Prediction service like Trimble (my favorite), we can enter the desired coordinates (yours) and time (tomorrow, March 24, 2021), and view a graph indicating when each QZSS satellite will be visible from that location. It appears you will be able to catch two of them somewhere around 23:10 hours (11:10pm) local time tomorrow:

As it turns out, this visibility is the same for your location regardless of date chosen.

Also, if you select GNSS from the main GPSrChive menu, you can find links to additional QZSS constellation information.

Enjoy!

Just another note: This update has fixed proximity alerts for me. I have filters set to "all" and get the alerts as I wanted for unfound, found, and my owned geocaches. So far it works perfectly for what I have wanted for well over a year. Thanks Garmin! :D
