Unwanted tracks from Meridian GPS by ttvnol
I use a Magellan Meridian with OziEx. I always get unwanted tracks connecting from the place it turned off to the place it turned back on. The same tracks appear on OziEx when I download tracks to my PC. Will the group members advise me how to: - Avoid the unwanted tracks appearing on my Meridian screen - Delete the unwanted tracks on PC after downloading to OziEx Thank you

Exporting city coordinates from Garmin MapSource by Pascal Damian
From what I've read, Garmin MapSource is pretty popular. Would it be possible to export the list of all cities with their coordinates and their countries, from Garmin MapSource to a text file? Otherwise, will I be able to extract it myself? Is the format of the map data proprietary? -- Pascal

Garmin EMAP - Info by Dave Caranci
I did a bit of digging on this EMAP thing: Here is the info page: http://www.garmin.com/products/emap/ I clicked on 'product comparison' with the Garmin GPSMAP 60C (pretty nice one that was just released) - below is the chart. - The EMAP can use map cartidges but they are sort of expensive (100 bucks each for 128MB card). - slightly bigger screen (0.2" wider) but lower resolution and not...

Turn Tracks to Trails by HH
Hi, I went hiking yesterday on a popular trail in Banff, Canada. I recorded the point of interest along with the trail's tracks. Now, is there a way for me to turn those tracks into trails use MapSource to upload it to the GPS along with other MapSource maps in MetroGuide Canada?

Why are some GPSs so much better than others? by Gavin Scott
Peter wrote: I have a Honeywell KLN94B panel-mounted GPS which I have been flying with for 350 hours and it has been 100% perfect, with even the altitude being within 20ft of true airfield elevation most of the time. Are you sure it *isn't* reporting pressure altitude? I'm out of touch with that market, but IIRC at least the early Aviation GPS...

creating routes with map - Legend C, Vista C, 60C, 76C by John Bell
One of the things that I really like about the Garmin mapping GPS receivers is the ease in which a route can be created using the map. I just got a Vista C and love it. I had a little trouble getting this feature to work on the Venture C and a 60C that I had played with at a local boating store. I eventually found the trick and thought that I would pass it along. It works well, but I was...

Manually Creating tracks in OziExplorer by Sean Bartleet
Hi, I have scanned a map and calibrated it in OziExplorer. I used three points to calibrate the map. When I upload a track that should be on the map the track loads up in the right place. I am having problems manually creating a track in OziExplorer. When I select the "Manually create track points" button on the Track control toolbar track points are created but are being created somewhere over...

Can MapSource IMG files be pruned? by David Lee
Just occured to me that a large amount of precious memory in my Vista is being eaten up by data that I shall never use. Is it possible to remove POI information, house numbers etc from Metroguide Europe files and recompile into a more compact form so that I can upload a larger area of useful mapping? If I have time I'll have a ferret around myself this weekend but some pointers from those...

Wild position swings with a Garmin eTrex Legend by dreamcachers
Last week, while climbing Mt. Belford in Colorado, my eTrex Legend went crazy. Although the sat page showed 5 satellites locked and an epe of 36 feet, the elevation started swinging up and down about a thousand feet and the position jumped around by about a quarter mile. The oscillation period was about 20 seconds. This went on for about 10 minutes. Finally, I turned off the unit and then...

Garmin GPSMAP 60/76/96 C/CS find city outside base map workaround by Hans-Georg Michna
Just wanted to mention that there is a semi-workaround for the defect in these devices in the find city function. It does not work outside the main base map area. I am not sure whether the workaround works in all of these devices, I tested it only on the 76C. But since they are quite similar, I guess it works on the others as well. The defect is that these devices do not use loaded maps to...

GPS and XM radio by Don B
This may be a touch off subject, but I don't think the tech support people at XM radio are familiar with a GPS like the SPIII so I'll ask here. Does anyone on the group use a satellite radio while they have their Streetpilot running, and if so does either interfere with the other? I ask because I have read that sometimes using two GPS units close to one another will cause...
