Mapsource by Bob
I have a really old set of the Mapsource CDs that I got with my Garmin Emap back when they first came out. I would have to dig them out to see exactly which version they are. I seem to recall that Garmin had some funky upgrade policy where you send them in and they send you a new set in return or something like that. I guess I will pop over to their web site to see what I can find but...

Altitude recording with garmin 76S in a pressurised plane by Michel
It doesn't seem me very clear to which altitude you record (and can then download to your PC) on a garmin 76S ! I saw that the "satellite view" allowed you to see the "GPS altitude" at any time, and that on the other views you could see the "altitude", which means the barometric altitude, and thus.... a wrong information when on a pressurised flight. So can any one help with this : Is it...

GPS Newbie needs help entering waypoints into Mapsource by Ryan
I've been trying to get this working for hours. Hopefully someone here can help. I've searched the internet for a guide or explanation on coordinate formats but didn't come up with anything that would help me. I'm trying to add some waypoints to my Mapsource software, that I will later download to my Garmin V. If I get the coordinates of a location on the Internet, I'd like to be able add...

Are compass heading and a timestamp recorded in manually stored waypoints (G-76S, Magellan Platinum, others)? by Jeremy Werner
Hello, I have a specific use case for a handheld GPS unit that requires saving position, timestamp, _and_ heading (from digital compass when stationary, not gps vectoring when moving) in a field of stored waypoints. I want to store them up in the unit, then dump all the waypoints to my computer back home. Simply getting instant NMEA sentences w/ heading is no good - in the field I will have...

Backup Garmin configuration settings? by Martin
I use my GPSMAP 60CS almost every day for at least two activities: biking and driving. The problem is that there are a bunch of configuration options that I like to have set a certain way, depending on the activity. For biking, for example, I like lock on road=OFF, high level of track logging, certain data fields on the map display (to name a few). For driving, I like a different set of...

GPSMap 76CS WAAS by mjohn
I just upgraded from a Magellan handheld. On the Magellan, the WAAS satellites were identified...they aren't on my Garmin. I used the option to turn off WAAS and the accuracy of my position didn't change (+ - 15 feet). Is there an error with my unit? Should the WAAS satellites be shown on the satellite screen? Shouldn't the positioning become more accurate? Thanks!

GPS for use in Japan? by Stuart McGraw
I apologize in advance for not doing my homework before posting, but my time is short... I will be going to Japan in a few weeks. Since I don't speak or read Japanese, navigation may be a problem. A friend who recently bought a GPS suggested I get one with a map display which could help me find my way back to the hotel, or tell me if I got off the train at the wrong station. Can anyone...

Question about batteries by Scott Byrd
Just bought a Garmin Legend and am amazed how fast I went through a set of two Energizer Lithium AAs. I admit to leaving it on and driving while on battery power. I just received my power adapter but will be buying some rechargeable NiMH cells for portable use. The charger must be portable above all, no need for a fast charger but the whole set must fit in my suitcase without taking up...

GPSMAP 60CS vs. eMap by Petri
I have an old eMap, which I have used years and I like it very much. Now I have new maps which make the update of the screen very slow. Does anyone have experience on the speed of the processor/system and comparisons between the old eMap and the new systems like 60CS. P_D
