  1. Not sure where to post this, but have all of the major issues affecting the Monterra been resolved yet? When the Monterra was launched, everyone was saying the unit should be avoided due to the number of major software bugs. It's been more than half a year since the Monterra have been launched so I'm curious if this is finally worth purchasing yet?

     

    Thanks!

    Take a look here:

  5. ok, that is correct, and that is actualy a problem...

     

    But you can do the following things.

     

    Create a map GARMIN in your C drive (C:/MAP)

    Create a map GGZ in that map (C:/MAP/GZZ)

     

    In the macro, set both on C (SD Card and GPS)

     

    The geocaches are installed now on the C-drive. Then copy them (also POI and PO_stash) to the SD-card.

     

    Works fine.

    An option is to use Thomfre's WiFi solution. I use this myself.

  6. If you leave the Map page by using the "Home" button rather than the "Return" button and then return to the Map page using the Home button to show active Apps and touching the Map App in the list, the Map will remain at the zoom level you left it.

    Thanks Dan. Yes, I have noticed that, but I forgot to mention it. However, I think the zoom level should be stored when using the "Return" button as well as the "Home" button. :)

  7. Anyone know where to report bugs, Monterrabeta@garmin.com maybe ??

    What's the bug?

    A selection of Geocache related bugs, problems and/or issues translated from the Norwegian Monterra Wiki by thomfre:

     

    - The default list of geocaches shows all caches, including the found once.

    - Found geocaches are not marked as found in the list. The only indication of a found cache is that it is shown on the map as an open chest.

    - When a geocache are tagged as found, it is still shown as the nearest geocache on the Geocache Dashboard.

    - The Geocache Dashboard does not update with the nearest geocache when on the move.

    - When navigating to a cache which is not the nearest one, the dashboard still shows the nearest cache.

    - The map zoom level is not stored when going out of the map page and back again. It defaults to 300 meters.

    - When navigating to a cache, it is not possible, as it is on the Montana, to push the dashboard to access the geocache description, hint and logs. One will have to select the geocache from the list again to gain such access.

    - Logs from GSAK in HTML are "unreadable" since the HTML codes are shown.

    - Only a few lines of the geocache description are shown

    - The compass does not show the right direction

    - Some names on the maps are shown upside down.

    - The Garmin App does not work with other languages than english

    - When loading a GPX file with more than e.g 1000 geocaches, the list of all geocaches are slow and imprecise.

    - When navigating to a cache, the bearing line is fixed to the point where the navigation starts.

  8. Other odds and ends I noticed while out today. I like the geocache set up where you can access all the info from the cache page by swiping side to side. No need to go to a separate page by tapping a separate button on the screen to see the options for each thing you might be looking for. They're all there on the one page with side to side swiping to access the info.

     

    Once I start to navigate to a cache by GO, I see no easy way to access the geocache info like description, hint and logs. On the Montana this can by done by pushing the Geocache Dashboard, but doing the same on the Monterra, the list of geocaches shows up. One will then have to select the cache from the list again to access the cache details. Swipe does not work when the map and geocache dashboard are shown.

     

    Also, when in the list of geocaches, the response is slow or imprecise. The unit looks to be pretty fast and precise in all other pages.

     

    When farther away, that's the quickest way I've found. It's one extra button push so I'm not complaining much. When close you can just tap on the icon and then the cache banner (again one extra button push so I'm not complaining). You can access the map of where GZ is from the side to side swipe in the description. Looks like photos are supported but I'm wondering if it's an automatic download or if you'd have to go through GSAK like with the Montana. Not sure what you mean about the last sentence in the first paragraph. If you're in map mode with the dashboard, it just moves the map, like it's supposed to.

     

    How many caches do you have loaded? I have one .gpx file with about 450 caches and I added three separate single cache downloads from GC.com (two Wherigos and a puzzle with corrected coordinates). The filters were fast and accurate while scrolling through my entire list and also searching for caches based on partial names, the response was quick and accurate there too. It scrolled just like my phone does.

    What I mean with the last sentence in the first paragraph is that from your post, one could get the impression that one could swipe, when i map mode, to show the geocache details. I like the Monterra to behave exactly like the Montana when pushing the Dashboard for easy access to the geocache details.

    I have tested with different numbers of caches, 2000, 5000, 12000 and more, both as single GPX and GGZ, but there is no difference in the performance. Scrolling is fine, it is the selection of the listed geocaches that are slow and/or imprecise.

  12. After upgrading to 3.98, the Where To, Go, magenta line, start point is fixed to the position where I started to walk from. The activity type selected is Direct Routing. Before 3.98, the magenta line has always been going from the current position to the destination. I find no way to change this. Is this a bug that was introduced with the new route activity types or have I overlooked something ?.
