Rather than revive the old Vista update thread (Garmin Vista HCx 2.6 Firmware / 2.5 SW Update (distance bug)..., here's a fresh start for a new version number.
Here's a list of changes, per Garmin:
<font face="times" color="blue"><b>Changes made from version 2.80 to 3.00:</b>
Correct time scale of altimeter chart.
Add support for maps greater than 2 GB.
Modify track log function for steady barometer output at power on.</font>
(Link to Vista HCx's history of changes: http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=3709)
The update is already nearly a month old, and can be downloaded from Garmin's site and installed manually, or installed automatically by their WebUpdater software.

A discussion of the changes can be found on the GroundSpeak forums (http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/ind...wtopic=221591). A couple of users report problems such as an ongoing tone at powerdown, problems with tracking elevation accumulation, and issues using WebUpdater. Seems that most aren't having any trouble at all.
