I'm debating on updating my GARMIN 255W because I read some people experienced gliches after updating to 4.8

I don't want to go through the hassle of updating if I'll have to downgrade to make it work again. Anyone?

I updated mine and haven't noticed any issues. The update went smooth. Used the GPS on 4.8 to find several known locations and routes were appropriate, maps loaded smoothly, etc...

What type of issues have you heard there are?

I don't recall what the complaints were specifically. Mostly problems with the new Ecoroute

:) I dont know about your model. Mine is the 760. I havent had any problems doing the updates. If you arent happy with what you download this week just wait . They have updates pretty regularly. The new versions always say what patches fixed what glitches they had previously. I havnet noticed any of the glitches they fixed on previuos versions.
& I know its not an escort. It still may lock out police stations tho. If you want to find cops you will just have to find alternate route to donut shops:)

x2, I am happy with my Garmin as-is, the last thing we need from them is too go fuxoring around with something that isn't broken.

there seems to be all sorts of odd issues with some of these newest "updates", regardless of model.

In this case, better the devil you know :)

You'll find newest releases and stuff concerning GPS, especially Garmin.
