Xite XSG3 Rand MacNally Nav Update

Rand MacNally just issue a large program/nav data update which applies to the Xite XSG3 Infotainment System in the NA. It took hours to down load from a very slow Rand MacNally server.

So far I don't see any major feature improvements but the Nav app does seem to be handling WiFi based traffic and weather data better than previous versions. One very neat feature of the Xite XSG3 is the ability to overlay weather data (including weather radar) on the current charted route.

Turbopilot: tried to download the Dock software. During install, I got a message telling me that my Mac “needs to be connected.” I had wifi and power connected....any idea what the message referred to?

First, the Mac OS version is buggy and often does not work. I finally had to move to a Windows PC to make it work.

You must have the SD card from the Xite system plugged into the computer for it work properly.

With the last update of Dock I was unable to make it work on the Mac.

Goodness is that they have improved the Rand McNally app on the Xite. Runs much better now. Still painfully slow to setup but once it is running with a destination it seems to do ok.
