Garmin has issued an update for certain handheld GPS units to fix a problem with access to the XM weather option. The 4.60 upgrade is aimed at upgrading "XM data validation for XM subscribers with weather data only." Over New Year's hundreds of Garmin XM subscribers lost weather capability and it was several days before service was restored.
