  4. Well, that part is correct. For some reason your GPS is not reading the card. Can you save to the card with your GPS (a set of waypoints or a route)? I ran the "test card" and it tells me that the card is not properly formatted? Did you try formatting the card first? Page 73 of the User's Manual describes how: Formatting the Memory Card - After accessing the “Card Utilities menu, highlight “Format Card” and press [ENTER]. You will be prompted to confirm that you wish to continue with the formatting. This will erase everything on the SD card, so continue only if you are sure that there is no data on the card that you may need later. When the format is complete, the Meridian will turn off. User's Manual can be found here: http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/...idianSeries.pdf Page 73 of the manual(page 84/105 in the pdf doc)
  5. some info from the users manual : http://www.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexVista_OwnersManual.pdf Manual Page 3(Page 13/84 in pdf doc) "Rechargeable Alkaline,NiMH,NiCAD,or Lithium batteries may also be used" "Rechargeable batteries may typically display less capacity than alkaline batteries" ""When using "battery saver" or "use with gps off" mode when not navigating,alkaline batteries can last up to 12 hours"" Manual Page 58(Page 68/84 in pdf doc) "Alkaline batteries lose a significant amount of their capacity as temperature decreases.Use Lithium batteries when operating E-Trex Vista in below-freezing conditions."
  6. Just had a look at the manual on-line http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/...idianSeries.pdf it talks about loading waypoints,routes etc,but no mention of regions.Still worth a read though. Page 71 of the manual.(Page 82/105 in the pdf doc)
  7. I'll play your game:What ARE you doing wrong? Seriously,you might explain the steps you go through when attempting to save the file.Also,what method you use to search for it.
  8. The link to the manual is here: http://www.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexSummit_OwnersManual.pdf Check page 40 in the manual(or page 42 of 73 in the pdf document)
  9. Every country has their own licensing rules. The UK postal codes, for example, cost us around 700 pounds every year. If they are obtaining their postal codes from various sources I suspect they are violating various international laws to do so. But maybe not. If you would like to approach them and obtain other countries' postal codes, and it is legal, I am always happy to add them to our database (and it was designed in such a way to make it easy to do so). Maybe this source can be used for Australian postcodes? http://www1.auspost.com.au/postcodes/ Edit:The link on this page reads "Download the Postcode Datafile".I didn't give the direct link as there is a note to read.
  10. Can you really cheat at this? I would have thought most of us were mature enough to be beyond such pettiness. Cheaters don't cheat other people,they cheat themselves. Leave 'em be,ignore 'em. Lets play and have fun. It's very sad to even feel a need to post about this subject.I feel sick.
  11. I've only been receiving PQ's for five weeks now,but the greatest time difference so far is only 14minutes over that time...guess thats pretty close to "clockwork"
  12. Australia.....bcos i'm starting to forget what home looks like
  13. some more here also http://wayhoo.com/index/a/bgns/cc/IZ/ctext/Iraq/
  14. That all depends on who is doing the talking and who you want to believe and what is the purpose in making the statement. It seems to change depending on the above variables as can be seen in this thread. So either PQs are a load on the server or they are not. It can't be both. My own feeling is if they are then the database has been poorly designed. GJ,i think the post by Elias: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Originally posted by Elias: Pocket Queries are designed to use cached (no pun intended) versions of the cache pages. We can send out thousands of PQs with 300 caches each with little to no impact on the web server or database. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- is getting at "processing" impact,whereas requests for increased limits will have "bandwith" impacts. Only my surmation...and been wrong before
  15. A few caches might get u started http://www.geocaching.com/seek/nearest.asp...d=97&submit3=GO
  16. This link http://www.lowrance.com/Outdoor/Products/iFINDER.asp should give some of the info you are after
  17. Info below is taken from the Spor Trak Manual at the Magellan Site which can be found here http://www.magellangps.com/assets/manuals/...rTrakSeries.pdf The PDF page number is 53 of 86,manual page number is 43 Creating a Backtrack Route — Creates a route using track information stored in the SporTrak to “retrace” your steps. A good example of using a backtrack would be if you were out hiking or jogging with your SporTrak turned on and computing position fixes. After 30 minutes you choose to return to where you started, following the same route you just took. All you need do is follow the instructions below and let the SporTrak take you there. From Any Screen Highlight Routes Select “Backtrack” from Route List Highlight Activate Backtrk
  18. They touch on it slightly here too: http://www.garmin.com/products/gpsmap60cs/ Taken from the link: GPSMAP 60CS features Fast map transfer, with support for both USB and serial port interfaces BTW-looks like one sweet unit!
  19. Can't see where anyone said that USB wasn't an interface. Maybe you were referring to my original post,which may have been slightly confusing. To clarify: early posts suggested people were looking for a USB port on the back of the unit the cable pictured in the link appeared to have the GPS standard interface plug on one end with a USB plug on the other end(to plug into your pc).If this is the case there would be no need for a serial to USB converter. I hope that explanation is clearer and possibly more helpful
  20. Judging by the accessory cable at the following link, http://shop.garmin.com/accessory.jsp?sku=010%2D10477%2D03 ,and reading the above posts,it appears you are looking for an actual USB port on your unit.The picture shows what appears to be the units' standard interface plug with a USB plug for your PC. If you are looking for a USB port on your unit,you're barking up the wrong tree.Hope this helps.
  21. RTFM,and if you don't have one,try here http://www.garmin.com/products/gps5/manual.html
  22. QUOTE (mardy26 @ Dec 18 2003, 01:47 PM) Okay! Now what if you legally have the CD. But can't get your system to use it. It installs the program just fin. And wen you first put the CD in it asks if you want to run the program. So you say yes the it tell you "There is no appropriate MapSend DirectRoute NA CD-ROM In drive H:\." Customer service can't help. Does anybody have any ideas?? If at first you don't succeed........ I have Mapsend Worldwide Database and got that quite often in the first few weeks of use,but no longer get it. Maybe the laser on my dvd drive was dirty??? Edit:cd changed to dvd

    How Long?

    I received my subscription notice within minutes of firstly activating a paypal account,and then making the payment. Not sure why they should put yours on hold ??
  24. Does anyone know if it is at all possible for individual users to "customize" the forum page? I've seen more than a couple of sites have this option,and was wondering if it was available here?
  25. I expect you'll find the pocket openings are right on the seam,hence,almost invisible.
