Problems with Garmin GPS III plus by dan
I'm having a problem with my III plus GPS. When I power it up, the screen turns solid black. If I press the power button again, the backlight comes on, but the screen is still totally black. It's as if every pixel is on (meaning black in this case). I've tried replacing the batteries, but it did no good. Has anyone ever had this problem? Any suggestions? thanks

SiRF data collection utility by ked
Hi, I use a Dell Axim5 (Mobile 2003) and a compact flash GPS card (uses a SiRFstar IIe/lp chipset) to collect GPS data. The commercial packages I have used don't have many of the features I need. Does anybody know of a program utility which will allow me to capture SiRF sentences for differential correction? I've found some viewing utilities but no capture utilities.

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,
