Does anyone know, if this version is also the announced 'fix' by Garmin for the device shutdowns in powered AMPS/Car mounts?

We are not aware of any firmware fix for that issue, only updated bushings for the powered mounts.

Thank you. Garmin also now confirmed that to me. I just wonder, why Garmin said in public, that this would be a software fix. And I can't really image, that updated bushings do fix that issue? Sounds for me, that Montana 7x0 has some problems with specific vibrations?
