I have been having some problems with lock ups on my Garmin network. In the past with other vendors what you bought was what you got. If the system had a problem you needed to uninstall it, send it to the vendor for a costly upgrade, and get back something that might or might not have solved your problem, Garmin has a policy of software upgrades that you can download from the internet and then apply to your equipment. The entire process is quite painless (as long as you have an SD card.)
The best part is that each upgrade seems to come with new functionality! For example version 6.2 for my 5xxx series chart plotters added a graph function. Cool!
