    I have ver. 3.40, Is this the latest ver,? If not where can I get the latest download ?
  3. Does anyone have the sequence for returning all settings to the factory default? This is for a Garmin 60 C. Sorry I posted it twice, fat fingers and no brains.

    Default Settings

    Does anyone have information on how to return all settings to their original factory settings?
  6. I have not heard of any auto manufacturers that publish the specs of their windshield glass.
  7. Thanks for the tip on the Instructional CD. I think we can generate more training tips right here in this forum.
  8. There is a metalic coating on my wind shield which kepps out the sun rays, unfortunately it keeps out signals from the satilites. My gps worked fine in other cars.
  9. I had a GPS V, when I bought a new Buick Rendezvous and the GPS could not get a signal through the wind shield. So I bought an external antena with a BNC connection. That solved the problem, but I just got a 60 S and I needed an adapter cable with a MCX male connection to a female BNC. I located one at Gilsson. Now I am back in the sky. With that adapter I do not have to remove it from the 60 S, cause it is one tight fit.

    Garmin Gps 60

    I just bought an early Xmas present, a Garmin 60C. Now I just have to learn how to drive this model. I sent my GPS V back to the UK with Lost in Space. My question is, are there any forums or web pages like the one by the Elsinga Family. for the 60C?http://www.elsinga.net/portal/index.php
  11. A mighty cheer to the "Hornet" from across the pond. We old cachers are at least ahead of some of the young ones.
  12. Putt from California would like to congratulate "The Hornet" for his 700th find. I have cached with you and I admire the tenacity you give to this sport. I am chasing you (431) so watch out behind you. Also please look after LiS as he needs guidance from his elders...Putt.
  13. There is one Cache puzzle in the sacramento area by Jeeplife, it is called Square Off. Try it and you may like it. I just finished it three days ago.

    Garmin GPS V

    Is there any way to completly erase all date (Maps,Waypoints etc) from my GPS?
  16. Geeze I can't even spell California, oh well when you are old you get to have mulligans...
  17. I have cached in the UK, Ireland, Mexico, Aruba,Hawaii, Oregon , Nevada and of course the central valley of Califoria.
  18. Three Italian nuns die and go to heaven. At the Pearly Gates, they are met by St. Peter. He says "Sisters, you all led such wonderful lives that I'm granting you six months to go back to earth and be anyone you want to be." The first nun says, "I want to be Sophia Loren;" and *poof* she's gone. The second says, "I want to be Madonna;" and *poof* she's gone. The third says, "I want to be Sara Pipilini ." St. Peter looks perplexed. "Who?" he says. "Sara Pipalini;" replies the nun. St. Peter shakes his head and says; "I'm sorry, but that name just isn't in the book." The nun then takes a newspaper out of her habit and hands it to St. Peter. He reads the paper and starts laughing. He hands it back to her and says.... "No sister, the paper says it was the 'Sahara Pipeline' that was laid by 1,400 men in 6 months."
  19. I solved the problem ...I bought a Garmin GPS V. Now I just have to get it to work with me!!!
  20. I do have a radiating antena, and it was a hit or miss reception. I have resolved the problem tho...I bought a Garmin GPS V, It arrived today so tomorro is the day of destiny. Mrs Putt says I only bought a new car so I had the reason to get another GPS...not a bad thought!
  21. Beware when you buy a new car. I purchased a new Buick Rendezvour and my Garmin Legend will not lock on to any satalites consistantly. Brcause the windscreen has been treated with a film to reflect the sun rays, ie satalites also. Solution buy a GPS that has an external antenna.

  23. I recently purchased a new (2004) Buick Rendezvous and my Garmin Ledgend will not pick up any satalites because of the coating on the front window. You can get a sparodic signal once in a while. I have tried a radiating antenna but it is also sparodic. Other than getting another GPS are ther any suggrstions???
  24. i Spoke to Garmin yesterday on a different matter and they said that they were not offering any rebates or discounts at this time.
