Default Garmin 7212 update

Anyone updated to the 5.10 software? If so any complaints or advantages seen? Checked mine and it's still at 4.80.
Thanks
Steve

Yea I got that from the Garmin site too. Just wanted to get some opinions from someone that had actually performed the update. The good, bad and ugly. Read about some updates here before that users wish they hadn't done.

The Garmin 7212 is a very mature product having ben out for a long time. I have not seen any complaints on the 7212 software, mostly on the newer release products supporting internal chirp and DownVu sonar.

I just installed a 7212 with release 5.1 and all seems just fine.
