SPIII with MapSource beta 5.03 by Marcel.
In article , Jon Barry says... I've had a few such wrong directions from the nav lady myself. I don't think it has anything to do with the version of Mapsource however. City Navigater 5 on my SPIII allways tells me to make a left turn on the highway just west to Utrecht, the Netherlands. If you did, you would end up in the crash barrier...

BlueChart and GPSMAP 76 by Pablo
I was at Boaters World the other day and he showed me a cd which contained puget sound. Garmin did get back to me and indicated that those mapsource cd's were back ordered- which *may* explain why their website indicated what it indicated. Anyway, thanks for the answers.

Mapsource 5 with European City Select 4.01 Can't find London by Mike
This find feature is still as buggy as hell. It can't find points of interest or streets in London, it doesn't seem to think that this major European capital city actually exists.

Simple iPAQ / GPS 12 software? by Terry Pinnell
As per my separate thread, I hope shortly to get a cable that will connect my iPAQ 2215 Pocket PC with my Garmin GPS 12. I'm now looking for simple, preferaby free or shareware software, easy to install, that will let me store trackpoints to the 2215 for later upload to my PC as text files (for processing with my existing software, GPS Utility). Any recommendations would be much appreciated...

Antartica by Rob Hodnet
Hello All, Over the next serveral months I will be doing some work aboard the research vessel Nethaniel B Palmer in the Ross Sea (Antatica) and would like a software package that will take a gps input and produce a living map of where we are. We'll have access to gps outputs (SeaPath, P-Code, Tremblesp) and either linux/solaris or windows. Any suggestions? Cheers, Rob

eMap and Autoscrolling by David Webb
Hi, I'm using an eMap with City Navigator - is there anyway of having the map automatically scroll when you are driving? Currently when I drive, I'm driving 'off the edge of the map' unless I use the rocker key to move to the next map. Just wondering if there is any way to stay centred to the map. What is the standard zoom that most people use when driving? Regards,

Problems with differential correction in Pathfinder Office by Bob W.
We are volunteers helping our town with some GPS/GIS mapping projects. Until recently we had no problems using Pathfinder Office (Ver 2.90) to diff. correct our data with the local CORS stations. Yesterday we started getting RINEX errors and the files would not be corrected. Reading Trimble's Support Notes were no help other than telling us that "version 2.90 of P.O. supports the use of RINEX...

MapSource - Find address bug by Jacek Pachocki
Hallo! I have noticed a strange behavior of the "Find Places" function in the MapSource 5.0 (and also in previous releases). I have informed Garmin about it some time ago but a) they cannot / will not eliminate it (yet) b) it only happens to me. With Garmin Europe Metro Guide 4.0 installed go to "Find Places", "Address" choose house number, no matter what, let's say "20" choose street name, ...

Garmin Permanent Mount by Dewey
What is the easiest way to remove a GPS V automotive mount that has been secured to a dashboard using the "permanent adhesive disk"? I seem to remember seeing something sometime ago about using something like nail polish remover, but I'm having a senior moment, and can't remember. Thanks to all, Dewey

GPS accuracy question by Mark
I got a Garmin V a few days ago. When it says "GPS Accuracy - 49 ft" does that mean within 49 feet from where I'm standing, or does that mean a 49 square-foot area? One guy told me square feet, but I can't find that in any of the GPS faqs. Thanks.

SBAS and NMEA DGPS station ID by Dale DePriest
Carsten Kurz wrote: Current SBAS enabled receivers do not show any station ID with the NMEA DGPS indication when they receive SBAS signals. Since WAAS PRNs have three chars (as opposed to 2 for navigation PRNS) wouldn't it be useful for those receivers to output the SBAS PRN as their station ID? Seems logical to me. - Carsten
