  • (I deleted the message) I deleted a message once also.
  • I purchased the CityNav for my Oregon. I also downloaded the NW Trails Project transparent trail overlay maps. I also downloaded the Washington 24k topo maps from GPSFileDepot.com. Also downloaded the Icbus (spelling, sorry) Topos for Canada. And fi…
  • Not sure if this is what you are after, but if you go to: Settings, Heading, Display and change it to Directional Letters... Then if you define one of the fields on the Dashboard or the Map Screen to Heading, then you'll see: N, S, E, W, NE, NW, S…
  • What about the serial to USB connection working with other devices. Like a cell phone or iPod or something. Are you able to check that. If it works with a cell phone or an iPod then you can at least know that the Serial to USB work. Can you install…
  • Just some thoughts: Does your serial to USB setup work for other functions like transferring maps, tracks, etc... Are there different communication protocols that you can select on your GPS unit. Try them all successively. You might have one speci…
  • Does anyone else have this issue: Sometime (randomly) while poking around in the menus, I'll tap a button, the button turns blue, yet the function doesn't activate. It's annoying. I had an phone years ago, where you could push the number buttons …
  • Boyd, Thanks dude, I'll definitely check that out. Although, I probably won't be buying any new hardware to use their software... Sam
  • To clairify: I've done this with the Oregon. I assumed the same could be done with the Colorado: I connected the Oregon to the laptop with the USB cable. Ran nRoute. Drove around the neighborhood. You don't get the "screen" of the Oregon on the l…
  • Garmin has a SW package call nRoute. Take a look at: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=575 Sam
  • In all seriousness, now that you guys have enlightened me, I can see the value of Topo's in a relatively flat area. There's more to a topo that just the contours. Next time, someone please remind me to think before I type... Rock on. Sam
  • Rick, Not to be an a-hole, but why would you be interested in Topo's of Florida? Isn't the state pretty much flat. The highest point is 345 feet. With 40 foot contour lines, you'd have 8 lines. Again, not to be an a-hole... I imagine that the map …
  • Get the Oregon. It's vastly superior technology. The 400t has the full US Topo installed. I put City Nav on a 4G uSD card. In addition I put Washington 24k Topo and NW Trails on the uSD as well. It can do turn by turn navigation from Anchorage, Al…
  • Not that anyone cares what I think... But here are 3 things that I'd like to see on the Oregon: 1. If you are pan'ing around on the map, and the push-pin inadvertently gets activated, the back arrow should just disable the push-pin, not take you b…
  • It's a good thing Garmin makes this and related topics clear to new customers...
  • Thanks for your response. I do see some detail map, but there are big batches of blanks on the map screen, as if some part of the map is missing. Also, when I tried to do routing, it would only allow me to connect from point to point with a straig…
  • Here's a trick to getting MapSource, and it works! Best part is, it's right from Garmin with no hacks or cracks. Download the Training Center: http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=835 Install it Then download the MapSource updat…

  • I'm using the newest MapSource 6.14.1 and CityNavigator Europe 2009. I have some questions of MapSource. How can I hide routes? I have already created dozens of routes and they really disturb the map view. I want to hide them temporarily... How ca…
  • Some models have an option where you can select "shortest" vs. "fastest" or something like that. See if changing that helps. I've noticed that a route won't necessarily follow the arterial that would seem obvious, but it takes you through neighborh…
