  1. Just to let everyone know. Cabelas is selling the Oregon on their website. I'm not sure if they are selling them in the stores yet. http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/template...t21350&rid=
  2. I run ubuntu linux on my laptop but because of the lack of support I use virtual box to download caches and maps. I haven't really liked gpsbabel i couldn't get it working.
  3. I'll add the 60csx to the mix because there are still times when I go looking for that unit. When I go out here's roughly how it breaks out. OR: 70%. For most of my geocaching where I can live with the accuracy of the OR (which isn't great), just about all of my hiking, all of my biking and all of my driving I use the OR because the touch screen makes it so easy to use -- especially for geocaching, biking and driving. After living with it for several weeks and with some optimization on the Main Menu I can get around very fast and I'm really starting to take advantage of the text entry in the field. Also on the bike the OR is much easier to use. I've learned to live with the dim screen by turning off the relief shading when it is bright outside (I have a "Bright Sun" profile). CO: 20%. I still take the CO with me geocaching sometimes and almost always have it as a backup. If it isn't having a drift event its accuracy is better than the OR. Screen brightness is better but not enough that I would take it over the OR in most cases. This might change during the winter months depending on the performance of the touch screen with gloves, snow, ice, etc. I can see the CO being my foul weather GPS, but the OR has been good enough in the rain that I haven't had to use the CO yet. 60csx: 10% There are still cases like yesterday when I was hunting multiple locations in dense forest that I just brought out the 60csx because of its location stability, while the CO was off on one of its drifts and the OR was wondering around the 60csx was solid. If Garmin can fix the CO drift issue I can see getting rid of the need for the 60csx because much of the time the CO works just as well, I just can't trust it yet. I'm worried about the OR ever getting to this level of stability, but I'm hopeful. Same here, I was on a wide open lake and I saw an accuracy of 14 feet and I was shocked. At least around here I'm surprised whenever I see accuracy in the teens and low twenties. How did you get hold of a 300 already? It was available in Europe this week or last. Some shots from Poland: http://www.garniak.pl/viewtopic.php?t=3687 GO$Rs Ok, for the 65,000 dollar question. I'm in the market and I'm either gonna buy a Colorado or the Oregon. I have no place to check out the Oregon, so I'm looking for any help I can get. Which one should I get. I'm not looking at the 60csx (I'm a sucker for graphics ).
  4. Thanks Geekboy! I knew there was a way to do that. I just didnt know how!
  5. supposedly the colorado 300 has about 4 gigs of memory that i cannot harness. the topographic map itself is about 3.5 gigs.
  6. Well i want to put the topographic map on it instead and it doesn't have enough room. So i want to remove it.
  7. I've tried pushing mine. But it doesn't look like a button. I even held it down. Nothing happens. Plus i never felt it 'click' like a button.
  8. I have a Colorado 300 and I feel the basemap of the the world is pretty useless to me right now. Is there any way I can remove the basemap from my Colorado and replace it with another map? Even if i could back it up that would be great! Thanks!
