  1. I have this software and when I create a map of a region - it does not seem to include the streets so I can use it while on the road. I know the Topo version has streets (it says it does) and a few years ago when I bought it the maps I created had street info. Now, no matter what I do (in the Software and on the GPS itself) I can't figure out how. This is frustrating me as I will be on a one-week roadtrip to Atlanta and would like these maps.


    To my knowledge, I never had to do anything different to get this feature. I'd simply create a region, download it to my GPS, and select the map, and it would work. I even played with the map settings on the GPS (detail).


    Any ideas???



  2. make up the continental U.S.?


    Is it 48, 49, or 50? This is in reference to one of my caches, which has been found once only (240 days ago) and I think the post of the finder is scaring people off.


    I say the answer is 48, based on what I remember in U.S. Geography, as well as what I found on the internet.


    But I was told I was wrong.

    Unless I did get the question/answer right and I just used the wrong coords. . .

  3. I placed a cache, but due to the area, I moved it about 250ft away. Some found it the first time, and went back later with others to find it had moved (they had the new coords, just didn't realize the cache had moved). It was recommended to archive the old one and re-create the new hide as a new cache. Personally, I wouldn't go to the same location to find a cache again, even if coords were different. I guess it comes down to a second find on the same cache. Not sure what I want/should do. Thoughts?

  4. OK, I just got it so I apologize if I should know this. I'd like to upload just one state, CA. Can I do this or do I have to use the rectangular tool to select regions? This sucks because to get California loaded, I have to get most of Nevada and a lot of the Pacific Ocean. I'd like 'just' the state of CA. So I guess what I'm asking is, can I download regions state-by-state?

    (Or, maybe, I should make smaller regions. . .)



  5. I think I'm ph*k'd. I was updating my Mag315 (because I plan to sell it) and all I had was a Meridian cable. So with some aluminum foil in the contacts (the coupling did not fit correctly), I started the upload. Then it stopped for a while. I clicked cancel, it said 'if you do you may corrupt your unit'. I figured, oh well. I cancelled. I CAN NO LONGER USE MY UNIT. ItT just says 'Software Update Mode Active' each time I turn it on. Now, WTF do I do? Anyone know how to do a MAJOR reset? I'm thinking w/o the update as well as the previous version, the unit won't do crap. dadgum, I'm pissed. I shoulda left it as is.

  6. Thanks for the help guys.

    Yes, NT, we do know each other, though, I don't think we've met.

    Now, where to get a PC cable for the 315 that doesn't cost $50.

    I'm looking for just the Pc cable (not with cig adapter). Anyone know where?

    I found a Meridian PC cable online, and wonder if that one will work with a 315 series. Anyone know if this does?
