I don't really seem to understand the major differences. What are they, besides the price and the file sizes? I had read somewhere about hidden maps what's that all about? Can some please explain it to me in non-technical terms. thanks

Filtering Tracks to Reduce Points by C. Bailey
I have a Garmin GPS. I am wondering if there are any good utilities for filtering track points? This is what I am trying to do - I have numerous bush roads recorded as tracks. I want to combine them as a single track because there are currently more tracks than my GPS can hold. To do this, I need to reduce the number of points in each track. Mapsource has some filter utilities, but they seem...

OnStar Died by Earthlink
I recently bought a 2001 Chevy Blazer and it came with OnStar. I activated it and OnStar was working great. Then, I replaced my headunit with a Sony aftermarket unit only to discover that OnStar needs the stock headunit. So, I reinstalled the stock headunit and OnStar still does not work. It's as if it is not getting any power. The buttons on the mirror do nothing and the OnStar...

Legend C - Current Draw by Len C
I'm trying to find the current draw on my Legend C to see if I can safely hardwire it to my off road motorcycle (12-14v) without the use of the lighter adapter. The Legend C manual (Rev A) indicates that it can handle 36 VDC from external power; however, in (Rev B) of the manual external power is not listed as an option. It looks to me like they originally designed the unit to handle a direct 12v...

Planning routes on computer by John
I find it easier to edit routes on the computer then on the GPS. I have noticed when I edit a computer calculated route, that is not exactly the route I would like to take, and then download it to the GPS it will not announce the edited turns. It shows the correct route on the screen but does not announce the edited turns or give the correct distance to the next turn. If I leave the GPS...

Pioneer AVIC 505 Password by Fred
Hello, I've sold my Pioneer AVIC 505 in-car sat nav and the new user has entered a new voice password.

"Black Boxes" (EDR) for Vehicles by Robbie
The NHTSA is proposing mandatory electronic data recorders for all new vehicles along the lines of aircraft "black boxes". The initial proposal mentions only the monitoring of vehicle parameters although it does talk about emergency medical services.

26x0 screen possibilities ?? by phk
I use a Garmin 2610. When looking at the map screen I get various information like speed, direction and directions, time, altitude and so on. It takes up about half of the screen. But is it really true that the line holding information about the altitude only can take up about 1/4 of the screen width? No further information possible on that line?? Surely it must be a mistake from Garmin´s side...

Foretrex 201 question by Dana
Hello. I'm having a little trouble finding what I need, and wish to seek advice here. I have the Foretrex 201, and wish to remove the wrist band from the unit. Garmin recommends using a "jeweler's band pin removing tool." (page 4 in manual) Does anyone know where I can purchase one of these? I live in the U.S. I also have a Forerunner 201, so this tool will be helpful.
