New GPS Frequency Question by Scott Darling
Hello all, I am considering purchasing my first GPS and have read that, by 2005, three new civilian GPS frequency's will be added. My question is two fold... are hand held GPS units meant to be able to utilize all these new frequency's or are these new frequency's more for specialty use? ie. aircraft, watercraft, etc. and secondly, if all three will be accessible by hand held units, are

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",...

Add-on to GPS phones? by Andreas van Hooijdonk
Found this article in SmallTimes about "anisotropic magneto-resistive (AMR) sensors. http://www.smalltimes.com/document_display.cfm?document_id=8196 Nowhere in the article GPS is mentioned. But pointing a handheld with compass in whatever direction, does not make much sense to me, if the handheld does not know exactly where it is situated. Any-one an idea? -- Andreas van...

Garmin 60CS and EGNOS by Simon Long
Hi All, Well, after weighing up the pros and cons, I weakened and ordered a Garmin 60CS to replace my Vista. It arrived yesterday, and I updated the firmware to the latest 3.43 beta, installed MapSource 6.3, and got stuck in... It's a nice unit. The only thing I miss from the Vista is the short cut menu to jump between specific pages, but I may just not have found that function yet. The screen...

saving tracks by vince
Over a 2500 mile trip the only way I could figure to save tracks was to save 300 mile segments. Depending on the road design, straight vs. curves. Is there another way? Thanks.

Cable TV -- Man with GPS and U.S. topos locates hidden ponds? by Lee Gotcher
This message is in regards to a short news clip broadcast either Saturday July 31 or Sunday August 1, 2004 on cable TV. The story was of a man who drives around the country with a topographic map and a GPS to find hidden water ponds that are not known to the public. When he finds a hidden pond he usually celebrates by going for a swim in it. He has written 3 books about the subject, basically...

Improved fixed route download software for Garmin 60CS and similar receivers by [email protected]

Blue Chart update free or not? by Bruce Stemplewski
Got an email from Garmin saying I was entitled to a free update to my BlueChart CD. They have you go to this link: http://www.garmin.com/unlock/ where they say you can fill out a form but I see no such form. All I see is a chart saying the unlock code is $75. So what is the deal the updated CD is free but I have to pay for an unlock code again?

SPIII Maps and Base Map by Kahuna
Had some problems over the last few months with my SPIII coming up with the 'This route does not match your maps' error. That was even when all routes were clearly on the map set installed. New install of Mapsource and the Mapping CD v6 together with a clear out of the routes and map card seemed to solve the problem. Changing the card today to a 256 mb unit (just arrived moments ago) and...

Best holder for GPS 60C? by Normand Choinière
We are a group of 60CS owners and we all have adopted Ram Mounts for both our cars and ATVs. Far superior, solid, cheaper, flexible than any other system. There is also a life guaranty! By the way we all have 12 volts connector in our cars and ATVs. NC Le Tue, 27 Jul 2004 21:35:32 +0100, Richard a écrit :

Improved fixed route download software for Garmin 60CS and similar receivers by Simon Long
Hi All, I've been doing a lot of work over the last week on being able to download an autogenerated route from MapSource to my 60CS - the default behaviour when downloading a route is for the start and end points to transfer, along with any user vias, and for the 60CS to either connect the points with straight lines or to autoroute between the points. I don't have CitySelect, so I have no...

Why are some GPSs so much better than others? by Andy
Peter wrote: Being an electronics hardware/software engineer I can understand a lot of the issues with reception, but why such a huge variation in sensitivity? The RF signals involved are very weak and can potentially be jammed by the RF noise from the GPSRs own CPU. This jamming isn't enough to stop the unit from working but will raise the noise level and so degrade the SNR seen by...

WAAS and Garmin60CS by J&D Cole
I have a Garmin 60CS and have read all the info about using WAAS (turn on, turn off, etc.) but haven't a clue as to why I would ever turn it off. Is there a power issue with WAAS on? Is there ANY reason to turn it off? Is there a specific condition when I should turn it on? Any info appreciated. -- Jack (Remove "-Freyathedog" for e-mail)

Why are some GPSs so much better than others? by HH
Peter, how old are the GPS that you mention? By "old" I mean, when did that GPS first came out? For example, new Garmin eTrex Legend C have better reception than it's older brother eTrex Legend that came out two years ago. Both Legends are still available right now. Some other factor also involve like "was it design to be a low cost GPS or was it design to be top of the line GPS?" "Peter"...
