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...

Why are some GPSs so much better than others? by Bob Gardner
The AIM tells us (in the US) to ignore GPS altitude and use barometric. If you are getting GPS altitude within 20 feet of barometric altitude, it is coincidence, nothing more. I can sit in my car at sea level and watch my GPS altitude (SP III) go down to negative numbers. WAAS is another story entirely. Bob Gardner

Garmin Map76 question by Surendar Jeyadev
I am very pleased with my Map76 and it functioned wonderfully on our recent roadtrip. I do have a question about its behaviour -- one that proved bothersome. When a route is active the GPS position locator is in the middle of the screen and the map slides by underneath as location of the GPS changes. So far, so good. Now, if one used the the Map Locator to pan around (say, to scan what is...

GPSMAP 60C and Route following by Family Guy
Hello, Can someone help...? I created a route on my PC using Mapsource. The route automatically chooses the roads, in which case are mostly highways. Good so far and I am happy with the way Mapsource setup the route. Here is the problem. I download the route to my 60c and begin to navigate it. However, the 60c has it's own idea of how to navigate the route... choosing different roads (which have...

Tracks in Wet Forest: Two GPSRs and Three Antenna Positions by Fred Hiltz
I made some test tracks in really wet woods to gather some evidence under controlled conditions on the perennial topic of tracks under tree cover. The results are not surprising. The executive summary: 1) Typical consumer GPS receivers can record useful tracks under heavy, wet foliage when reception is not obstructed by the user. 2) Forget about carrying the antenna on your body in the...

Time displayed on GPS by Dale Gloer
I recently had occasion to drive across a time zone boundary - MT to PT with my Magellan 315 GPS. To my surprise the displayed time remained MT even after a couple of days and several power off/power on cycles. I expected that the time display would be correct for the time zone I was in. How is the GPS time display computed and do I have to tell it which time zone it is in? Dale Gloer

Why are some GPSs so much better than others? by Carsten Kurz
Peter schrieb: I have a Socket bluetooth GPS from socketcom.com (SIRS chipset??) which returns the altitude about 300ft too high (always) but more That is due to a bad firmware implementation in older SIRF-II receivers. They output only geoid altitudes, not MSL. I also wonder what is the point of a 12-channel GPS when most of the time there are 8 or fewer satellites in the sky.

Settle A Bet Regarding GPS Time by t
Good Day All: I have a bet at work (boatyard) regarding GPS time as shown in the receivers. I realize this is an over-done subject but your responses are the arbitrator in the dispute. I claim that if the receiver is locked on and functioning properly, the time shown will be accurate to within a couple of seconds at least. My co-worker claims 8 minutes is the best that can be hoped for. Who...

Delorme SA 2004 crashes Win2k by Yum
I have been trying to use a GPS with Delorme SA. 2004 It is a generic serial GPS connected to a USB port through serial/USB converter. It is detected by the software and everything seems to be running for a while, but it crashes system completely all the sudden during navigation. The only way to recover is to reboot the system. It happened every time. With the same setup, I never had...

Getting TOPO .tpo files into Garmin 60C/MapSource by spooky Po
Hello all, I am trying to figure out how to get tracking and other data from TOPO ..tpo files into Garmin's MapSource software and my new Garmin 60C. I can get the data contained in the older .tpg format such as routes and waypoints into Mapsource via OziExplorer or GPSbabel, but can't find a way to convert .tpo files. This is their new combined file format and in addition to waypoints and...
