Vista C has a better antenna? by Darrel Goheen
It seems that the Vista C has a better receiving antenna that the older eTrex line. I have the Vista C laying on my desk and it is currently receiving 6 sats. and I would be lucky to receive any on the old eTrex's. -- Darrel Goheen http://www.tvnav.com

Downloading a full MapSource route to a 60CS - a workaround hack by Simon Long
Hi All, Having just received my 60CS, I decided I had to address the issue with full routes not being downloaded from MapSource to the GPS (just start, finish and user-defined vias). Others have suggested that they have kept an older GPS, downloaded the route to that, uploaded it to MS again and then downloaded the resulting route to the 60CS, but that seems a bit tiresome - and prevents me...

Street names on 2610 by LouW
I don't know if I am doing something wrong but often the street names are not visible. Frequently the major street name is way to the right under the tabs. Are the positions of the street names locked in place or do they move as the map scrolls. I would think it would be very useful to place the street names near the center of the route. Is this a difficult thing to do? Thanks, Warm...

iPaq Navigation System - Update Report by Bob H
I've updated to the latest version application that was just released. New maps are nicer but a terrible hit on performance. The application is so slow it's crazy. They've basically ruined it. Clicking menu items while the gps is tracking there are horrible delays. I'm using a 3950 iPaq and have tried maps on board and on SD card and no difference. Bob

Garmin USB Protocol clarification? by Bruce Stemplewski
As typical of Garim their documentation of the USB Protocol is confusing and barely adequate. I guess we should just be happy that they published something. Even more typical of Garmin is that the protocol does not work the same way across all USB models. The 76C that I purchased does not use the bulk in pipe but I understand that the StreetPilot 2610 does use the bulk in pipe. In fact...

Upgrade problem (Garmin) by Jack Russell
Well, it is the weekend, I have an installation problem and Garmin is closed. What a PITA. I have an old v2.01 TOPO and need to install in on a new laptop with the latest and greatest v6.3 mapsource on top. It will not install. The old TOPO does just fine but as soon as I dump in v6.3, it errors out and will not run. I only attempted it about a dozen times. I also deleted all reference to GARMIN...

More... In praise of Garmin repair by John Lamb
After 3+ years of constant clicking of my eTrex Venture's joystick, it would no longer click in certain directions, or when pushed straight in. My display would also sometimes look like a UPC barcode when the unit was powered up. I thought about simply buying a new unit, but then checked the newsgroups and found out that Garmin did repair these units for roughly half of what a new one would cost....
