V6 data update? Maube by LouW
HI, I called Garmin tech support for some help then asked if the tech could check to see if my address is correct yet. It wasn't. It is only about 35 years old and I have been sending in corrections since I first bought the eMap way back when. Not a major thing but it does put the $150 update a bit lower on my list of goodies to buy. Warm Regards,

"Walter Wright" wrote in message ... I recently logged a problem report with Garmin (more of an enhancement request really). I suggested that it would be useful to be able to save tracklogs from the 26xx products, a facility I have become accustomed to using in my trusty eMap. The lack of a serial port means that you...

Garmin 276C "Protective Cover"? by Karl Juul
Has anyone used a Garmin "protective cover" (not case)? It looks like a soft plastic cover that snaps over the display: http://shop.garmin.com/accessory.jsp?sku=010%2D10492%2D00 I'm considering getting one to use to protect the display from scratches and also to conceal the unit while mounted on a motorcycle...the blatant Garmin logo would have to be obscured, though.

City Navigator v5.x vs v6.x by BOHICA
I've had my 2610 for about 2 1/2 weeks now. Overall I am quite satisfied with the unit. My 2610 shipped with City Navigator v5. Yesterday I received an email from Garmin telling me about the release of v6. The message said I could either download or order the CD ROM at no charge BUT the unlock codes for full access would cost me $150.00. Maybe I'm wrong but I feel that since I just purchased...

Auto routing with eTrex legend C by Yum
I am confused with Garmin MapSource. According to Garmin's eTrex Legend Color's web page, the GPS is capable of auto-routing. However, the compatibility table shows City Select North America, it does not have Metro Guide USA in the list. For B/W legend, it lists Metro Guide, not City Select. My question is whether I can use Metro Guide USA with Legend Color, or not. If the answer is "yes",...
