  1. But the number of segments exceeds the current limit (2025?) You're absolutely right, Herzog, I neglected to check that. To load all the segments from the US Topo - East CD would require 2565 map segments, which does exceed that limit. --Larry The segment limit varies with the different units, the 60 and 76 x series units have a limit of 2025.
  2. Thanks, i know this funktion, but i want to plot an area of 50x50 miles with all details on an A0-Plotter It looks like GlobalMapper (www.globalmapper.com) might be able to print such a map. However right now getting the .img data into GlobalMapper might pose a problem. At some point I'll have a program that will be able to convert a .img file into a format GlobalMapper can read.
  3. All features are the same. The only difference between CS & CN is the directions are a little more explicit in CN than in CS. I also think the directions might be a little more verbose on the PC for CS than MG, but not sure about that. So yes except for the autorouting on the gps CN and MG are pretty much the same. However there are ways to get autorouting on the gps with MG. For instance if you load the maps with sendmap20 instead of mapsource than you get routing on the gps but loose global indexing, but there are ways around that as well.
  4. Have you looked at the tracklog on the gps? If you looked at the tracklog on my gps you could probably narrow down where I lived to about 4 or so houses by where all the tracks converge.
  5. It would work if you have unlock codes for all the units.
  6. Is the ramp in google maps? If not it won't be in v8 of City Navigator since both use data from navteq. Have you reported the problem to navteq (http://www.navteq.com/updates/mapfeedback.html)?
  7. Yes, it shuts down making this one particular turn whether or not it's navigating. Now, GET THIS!!! If I turn OFF the GPS, do a GO TO and say YES to simlulate/demo the route, as the route is SIMULATED (I'm not moving) it turns off at exactly the same place. What happens is there is a turn, that arrow saying to turn come up, but the tracking triangle does not make the turn. It passes the turn, turns around, and comes back to the turn (in like a second) and starts to get ready for the turn and then turns off!! Explain that! Well, since you can reproduce the problem in demo mode, give the repro steps to garmin so they can fix the bug.
  8. The brown you see on the unit is actually yellow. You can change how different types are displayed in mapsource and on different units using a new feature. You can create a TYP file (using the latest version of cgpsmapper) and then add a registry entry for the map product you want to change. Here is the .typ file that I use for City Select North America v7: http://rwsmaps.griffel.se/1007d.typ and the .reg file to add the entry to the registry. Be sure to edit the file first so that it points to where you put the file: http://rwsmaps.griffel.se/csna-typ.reg Rich
  9. I don't believe any that can be used for map storage. I don't know how much it has to store tracklogs etc.
  10. Not sure how any autorouting handles this roundabout: http://www.swindonweb.com/life/lifemagi0.htm I don't know, but looking at it makes my head hurt!!
  11. Garmin usually anounces the new version somewhere in the middle of the "announce" date and "ship" date. So they could announce it today but the website would have an announce date of May 1st or June 1st. Yes, they could just be counting on the fact that Garmin has come out with the new version around this time for the last few years to corner the market so to speak.
  12. MetroGuide also doesn't use roundabouts. Not a problem in North America, but in Europe if you do use the tricks to get mg to route on the gps then the directions you will get won't be as good as if you used city select or navigator.
  13. Here are some stats on City Select North America for v5, v6 and v7. I'll update it with v8 when it becomes available: http://forum.brighthand.com/showthread.php?t=222341
  14. The 60CSx does have some internal memory (it stores the track log to it). If you loaded maps to the micro sd card using a card reader, you will notice that when you insert the card and turn the unit on, it will have a progress bar at the bottom of the welcome screen. It seems to me that it is building some type of index in internal memory for the maps on the card. So the limiting factor in the number of maps you can have on the SD card is the size of the index file that it can put in it's internal memory.
  15. I have a brand new 60CSx I need to sell, see: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=130062 With shipping to Australia (USPS global express mail) the price would be $450 US. As I said in my other post, I'm new here, but I'm well known over at http://forum.brighthand.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53 and run the Garmin map site: http://rwsmaps.griffel.se/ It's in stock and ready to be shipped out.

  16. Due to an order mix up on my part (canceled an order from one vender and ordered from another before I got confirmation that the first order had been canceled) I now have two new Garmin 60CSx units. I'm keeping one and will sell the other (still unopened). Cost is $429 shipping included to anywhere in the US. As an added bonus I'll make the buyer a custom 24k topo map of any area in the US (up to 20 USGS quads). For details on the 60CSx see: http://www.garmin.com/products/gpsmap60csx/ I'm new here, but well known at http://forum.brighthand.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53 and run the site: http://rwsmaps.griffel.se/ I will ship outside the US for $429 + additional shipping cost.
