So what I am struggling to understand is why, on Axamax's earlier post, is the 595 £120 more expensive than the new XT

No mention of the USB being USB 3 which is really too bad given how long it takes to load maps.

Garmin went back to USB Mini because it is a more robust connector than either the USB micro or USB C.

If you look at Garmin's site the 595 is still at £549 under previous models. I expected the XT to come in at £550 to £600.

Updating its supplied mapping is via its built in Wi-Fi.

Are you saying that it can't be done via USB? If so then another reason I would avoid.

I see 'in the box' there's a data cable so sounds like there's still USB connection.
Would be nice to see USB 3!
