Default problems and bugs with new raymarine, 3.18 software

Have anybody noticed some faults with the newest software, 3.18, yet.
I've found two: When i troll i like the machine to draw a track during my fishing so i can go back exactly to a spot or drift i want to try again. On the earlier version of the software the machine draw straight lines to save memory and i think it has being an discused issue here allready, so i dont bring it up again. Now, on the new version there is a possibility to descide how often the machine is supposed to leave a mark. After two secs. or up to 30secs. is what i have used. Problem is that my C80 will not tell me when this trackmemory is full and it will start "eating it's tail". The thing that occurs is that the machine starts beeping and showing that "trackmemory is full". Only thing for me to do then is to turn the plotter off. Then i have to strt over again, since none of the earlier track has been saved.
Have anybody noticed this? How do you set the trackreading? Dropping marks using the time or distance reading?
Fault #2: Pushing man overboardbutton doesn't work. Machine warning with alarm showing a route how to get back to the guy in the water, but have to be turned off before it can be used again. Manual says it should be possible to push button twice and then it will leave a waypoint. Waypoint is there, but isn't the noice supposed to be turned of without shutting down the screen?

thought this site was full of raymarineusers cruising around the sea.
I phone Raymarine Sweden and they told me to check out if any other fishemen had problems with their upgrades. If so; it could be easier solved when next upgrade is coming. Nothing more then that.
