  1. Hi all. I recently purchased a 76 Cx and pretty much happy with it for the most part. I’ve purchased MetroGuide for Canada and I also have Navigator or whichever is the free one – I find it difficult to keep up. Anyway, I recently purchased Bluechart Americas v8.5 and I am noticing what appears to be a glitch. First thing I did was add some maps from Bluechart to my existing maps from Mapsource etc. and uploaded them into the unit. There was one particular spot I was anxious to look at, specifically CA 273097. Well that’s what the map is called when you hover the mouse over it on MapSource, but when you select it, it is called CA2202 (E) 20000 in the left column. I actually selected many maps of that region when I uploaded them. However, when I viewed them on the GPS, the northern area of the above map appeared fine - displaying all the detail like it was displayed on the PC. However, when I zoomed in with the cursor placed within that map, the display information changed-most of the detail was lost and the background went from white to blue. But this was only for the northernmost tip of that map, 95% of the map still was normal. What struck me as odd was the fact that the detail IS there as I could briefly see it as I scrolled the map or zoomed in on an adjacent one, but as soon as I got close, it went funky. When I zoom back out, that particular area remains blue, unlike it appeared before I zoomed in. Thinking it might have something to do with other maps, setting etc, I removed all POIs, waypoints and other maps so that only that one map was in the unit-no change. At no point does it look like this on the computer. Any ideas? Also, I have a 1 gig card in the unit. Is there a way to merely add to the maps that I have previously uploaded to the GPS instead of having to download them from the unit, add a map then upload again? It’s kind of time consuming to add a 2 meg map to 600 meg worth already uploaded(40 minutes). BTW, if anyone can tell me how to determine the revision dates of various maps, such as MetroGuide or Navigator etc. much appreciated. I would like to know how current they all are.
  2. This seems to be overlooked on every 60 vs 76 thread I read but the 76 has backklit keys - I find this function significant.

    I DID read and understand your last paragraph: my GPS model is correctly selected (Utilities >> Get Unit ID, and it shows GPSMap60CSX in the Device drop down, with no other choices and I can't find any other way to change it). But MapSource shows MORE symbols than what are compatible to MY GPS, (as well as having more, some just aren't the same): MS has 211, including letters, numbers, "contacts" plus the 24 custom ones My GPSr has 162 plus custom, and, coincidently, the only "little black square" is the one I created in the "custom" section (on the unit)! I don't think I'm missing anything. And I understand the "blue flag" issue. One reason I'm being so particular is that I'm color blind and have trouble seeing many of the symbols in both MS and GPSr, against various backgrounds, and would like the ones I select to transfer to the unit - except they don't appear in the unit! Thanks for putting up with me. Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I just bought this unit and I am going through the same issues. Seems stupid that my symbols don't match and there doesnt seem to be a way to tell MS I am using a specific unit.
  4. I had the same dilemma last weekend. Went to the Sportsman's show expecting to purchase a 60CSX but bought the 76 instead- glad I did. The idea of covering the screen when using the buttons is moot - it just doesnt seem to happen. The buttons are bigger, better spaced and have a nicer feel than the 60. This makes using it in the car dash mount much much easier AND easier to use with gloves on. Actually, the placing of the buttons/screen on the 76 results in holding the unit balanced while pressing the buttons. Yes, it floats and has a slightly bigger card. The 76 - where I bought it - was $30 cheaper and this seems to be typical. However the most glossed over feature is the fact the 76 has backlit keys! Indispensible! Oh, keep in mind too that you need not (two handed)reach to the top of the unit for the power button to turn on the backlight like you must on the 60 series. this should make your decision obvious.
  5. Guess who's back? It’s certainly been awhile. I joined Groundspeak back when there only 1200 or so members. Back then I owned (and still do) a Lowrance GM100. Still a great unit but cannot compare to the functionality in today’s units. Two days ago I purchased a 76 CSX. I so badly wanted a Lowrance H20 C but when I compared them objectively, I decided on the 76. Part of the reason was due to the software I already have for that unit which I would have had to purchase for Lowrance. Nevertheless, there am still I few features on the Lowrance I will miss with the Garmin and a few new features I need some help with. One thing about Lowrance was the customizable pages. It has 10 pages that are fully customizable, unlike the Garmin, which has limitations on what you can do with each page. For example, I typically set up three pages I would switch back and forth on my GM100: one with two maps but with different zoom levels and orientations (2 maps, split screen) and then two more pages similar with specific data for each page, comparable to the trip computer page on the Garmin. Garmin has only one trip computer page where as Lowrance has 10 – if you wanted them. No biggie I suppose, I can learn to live without them. What I will not be able to live without however is the ‘event’ markers available on Lowrance. These were basically waypoint without any info or names attached to them; although you could navigate to them. I typically used them when I was in my boat and passed near a rock lets say. I would just drop an icon of a skull at that spot. The same for boat launches or gas stations. I wasn’t aware Garmin lacked this functionality until I had already purchased the unit. I DO NOT want to use my existing event markers on my Lowrance as waypoints on my Garmin. As it is, I will run out of waypoints on the Garmin shortly. However, I have been reading a little on these on the custom POIs on the Garmin. Can this functionality be used in place of the events markers on my GM100? If so, how does it affect memory? A few more questions if you do not mind. Waypoints: are they stored on the unit or in the micro SD card? If I switch cards, can I switch to a new set of waypoints? POIs: the same question as above but for POIs How much memory does the 76 CSX have (internal). Just enough to fill all its waypoints, routes and track data? Is there a way of determining how much memory is left internally AND how much is left on the SD card? Finally, is there a way, when on the map screen, to turn of the coordinate readout of the cursor that pops up when I am using the cursor to scroll? I’m sure I’ll have more questions as I learn to use this unit but that’s it for now. THANKS A HEAP! MajBach
  6. Somehow the Yukon cache snuck in the without me catching it; it's on the map now. Also have noticed that S. Ontario (i.e. Toronto) has the largest concentration of Geocachers and hence has rec'd it share of 40 squares. Why has there been only one cache for this area placed so far? Is this project losing momentum or have I missed some caches containing squares? MajBach You can't have everything,where would you put it?

  8. quote:Originally posted by GrouseTales: About a month ago, the keyboard fell off my Lowrance GM100! Go to Walmart and grab yourself some 'Plumber's Goop'. There is marine Goo and electricians goop etc. - all the same stuff but sailors will pay more for it. Apply it with a toothpick to all areas but the white buttons. Have some acetone handy (nailpolish remover) 'cause it's messy. I found on my GM100, the pad had stretched a tiny bit, making it hard to get the corners in without looking like there was a bubble. I would suggest you goop all but the outside edges first, then apply the pad and let dry overnight. then put some goop under the edges and tuck them in. You may have to use electrical tape to keep it there until it dries. Any excess goop on the unit comes off very easily the next day. MajBach You can't have everything,where would you put it?
  9. quote:Originally posted by cliffy: Hi MajBach, Just noticed another you can add to the map: Thanks for letting me know. I just realized I haven't even included the one I placed in St. Cat's on the links above - duh! I'll update them in the morning as I just placed another cache tonight for the quilt project for the Guelph/Cambridge area. I don't know how response has been for others, but I could use another packet of quilt squares if there are any. Still planning on geting over to the London area and Barrie too but I only have 4 squares left. MajBach You can't have everything,where would you put it?
  10. I mean this is 5 weekends out of 6 that the Wx has crapped out. If I'm not on my boat or doing yardwork in the nice weather, then I'm Geocaching. I've only been on my boat once this year yet my last hunt was probably close to a month ago. So, I guess I just have better things to do or am losing interest. Seriously, my enthusiasm for the sport has almost disappeared. I've noticed this as it has happened and even felt bad about it. I was looking forward to taking a lot of time and effort this summer placing marine caches and caches further north. The response to my quilt cache in St. Catherine’s ( my first cache ) is quite possibly the only thing that has kept me interested this far. I was surprised to see how quickly the squares were taken and how much most appreciated where it was placed. Ironically. the only reason it was placed there was because I was having a real bad day and I needed to stop and relax. The detours and traffic jams took me to that location. I've just noticed so many changes to Geocaching since I started. I don't think it was 6 months ago I heard about this site and if I recall, there were less than 3000 members. What are we at now, 11,000 plus? Everyone is welcome to the sport, and I do not hold any type of aristocracy towards newbies. But it seems you can barely venture out your front door now without stepping on a cache. This has certainly removed much of the novelty for me. By far the most disappointing turn that has occurred since I became involved has been the forums themselves. Reading the daily posts and contributing to the boards was as enjoying for me as the hunt itself. It's now a full time job just to sort through the interesting ones worth reading and avoiding the posts that are a repeat of a topic covered a week ago and each week preceding that simply because few will bother to do a search. There used to be a level of, call it maturity, that separated Geocaching from other forums and NGs. Many, including myself, used to post that they observed the same thing. Sadly this is no longer the case. Now, there are more whining about virtual caches and avatar bandwidth or flame wars over GPSrs brands and redundant posts than there is anything else. There's little difference now between Geocaching than any other aspect of the net. I think May 22 was the last time I logged in here or checked for new caches. I just can't be bothered sorting through the gripes or lame caches placed by people who have never even been on a hunt or even own a GPSr. I have been meaning for a long time to add to the thread about a desire to see a Canadian website. Fortunately, the density of caches in Canada is no where near as thick as in the U.S. and because there are so fewer Canuck Geocachers, it's still nice to log in and read the posts from home without having to make an entire day out of it. As much as I wanted to many months ago, I haven't supported Groundspeak with a member donation. I have no desire to do so any longer. I would gladly do this for a Cdn. website however, even if it were attached in some way to Groundspeak. I would actually prefer to see it as a member’s only website, just to filter out those who are not serious or familiar with Geocaching and to keep the growth of caches less than exponential. The Geoquilt project is really the only hot item left for me in Geocaching. I still can’t praise Dx enough for all the work that she has done that certainly must be involved. I can’t wait to see ( and own – Ha Ha) the finished product. Once that project has ended though, I cannot say if I’ll still be around. Hope my enthusiasm gets revived, because it sure was fun while it lasted. MajBach You can't have everything,where would you put it?

  13. quote:Originally posted by Alan2: Sept 11th was a clear, cloudless morning in NYC. I could see the towers burning from 7 miles away as if it on the next block. However, if it had been raining and overcast or foggy, having a GPS navigate you to the WTC would have been very helpful. Remember, although the terrorists did have flight training, they were not experts especially at using the on-board navigation equipment. A GPS could have been extremely "helpful" had the weather been different. Alan I highly doubt a GPS was used to find the towers. As so many have stated, they would be an easy visual, especially from low altitude. If a GPSr was used, it was more likely used to find New York City from several hundred miles away. From high altitude and especially high speed, it takes an experienced and trained map reader to navigate by visual reference to the ground; especially over highly populated areas. I also doubt that a moderate bank was used to spread the impact to cover multiple floors. Looked to me like had the little pric not banked, he would have only clipped the side of the building. Then again, who really knows what was going through their minds moments before impact. Probably thinking about the harem of women they are promised in the after life from making such noble self-sacrafices. MajBach You can't have everything,where would you put it?

  16. quote:Originally posted by gpsmapnut:useful info Easily verified by turning on the hidden status screen of the GM - from the "Status" screen, hit down arrow three or five times. IMHO That is pretty darn good! even more useful info Like I was saying, you and Joe are the first to come to mind for real insightful info on GPSrs. Anyhow, referring to your statement, I've never been able to decipher that status screen. What does 'PRN', TRK' and 'SNR' mean? I have an idea, but I do not know how to evaluate the numbers/letters in those columns. For example, what would be a bad SNR? As far as reception goes, sattelite must play the biggest factor. I've had days - clear days - when the GPS has difficuly if I move it an inch in the wrong direction inside the car. Other days it tells me when I need to stop an pick up milk and bread!

  20. Not to sound like I'm whining or anything (but I am)... I went down to St. Cats/Niagara Falls yesterday - had to see a customer and wanted to place a quilt cache. I meant to do this last week on my way home from Rochester but the Wx was to wet. Maybe it's old age creepin' in or something ( although I still have a lot of catching up to reach Cliffy ), but lately I've noticed that I seem to be one of the 'old Grannies' when I'm driving nowadays; puttin' along listening to CBC radio instead of firewalling it to classic 80's rock. So anyway, I'm about 10 minutes outside St.Catherines making a little effort to keep my pace a little faster than flowing glass but I keep getting 'boxed in' by the same two or three cars. As Billy Crystal used to say ' I really hate when that happens '. So I downshift and take no time in claiming my own patch of highway. Wouldn't you know it, but the 'fuzz' just happens to be coming off their do-nut break underneath the next overpass. Cop had his sirens on before I even knew he was there but I was stopped with documents in hand before he had even merged with traffic. I never sit and make excuses or whine and I acknowledged I was speeding when he asked. Before he returned to the cruiser, he pauses and asked ' any excuse?' - guess he's so used to getting these. I said, ' I don't believe I could convince you I'm about to give birth, so would any other excuse suffice?'. He chuckled and walked away. I've been in this situation before and was quite confident he would return after confirming a spotless record and send me on my way with nothing more than a brief scolding. Man, was I wrong. 162 loonies and 3 or 4 points! My first ticket in 17 years! All he could say was, ' it's the weather I think today - be careful next time, we're always sitting under this bridge'. 'Thanks Putz! You made my day', I thought. Needless to say, I was in disgruntled postal worker form the rest of the day (whoops - maybe bad analogy - Ha Ha). Turns out, that was the tip of the iceberg. I did manage to place a quilt cache down on the Welland canal, but only after finding and inspecting every single detour, construction zone and active lift bridge along the way. I thought now would be a good time to relax and let my frustrations disappear by hunting a cache -it's been weeks since I've looked for one. I found one close by and it was the cacher's first cache. It was a 1/1 urban cache and was really well done! Unfortunately, the thick, green, uncut ankle-high grass - which looked harmless enough - managed to cleverly hide about 4" of water underneath in several spots. As I write this, my brand new $120 leather shoes are sitting out in the sun drying. I don't think my feet appreciated spending the next 4 1/2 hours in the not-yet-supple-but-soaking-wet-leather either. So I continued not so merrily on my way towards the falls, via the 405. I alternated between looking at my GPSr and the side of the road trying to find the exit that will take me south to Niagara, but I can’t seem to find it. The 10 kms of transports lined up single file nose to tail in the right lane didn’t help much either. Before I know it, I’m in line waiting to cross the border and no where else to go. You’ve probably heard that security has increased a little in the past 24 hrs or so at the border. It took just under an hour to let the dozen or so cars in front of me through but still not enough time for me to figure out a way of describing my situation without feeling like a complete moron. She asks the usual few questions before pausing enough to allow me to explain I missed my turn and just wanted to turn around. ‘No problem. Just go up here and make a left and that will take back over the bridge’, she pointed without turning her head. I drove away and got about 500’ but still didn’t see this ‘left’ she was referring to. I looked in my rear-view hoping to see something I missed but rather saw an unmarked Chevy with the burners lit comin’ my way. Two guys in T-shirts exit the car that is now stopped in front of me with their hands on their side-arms just waiting for me to sneeze. Even after I explained to my situation, they insisted on searching everything except a few of my body cavities before pointing out the ‘left’ I was looking for; which was literally less than 50 feet from the Customs booth. I couldn’t find a paper bag or any other type of mask to hide my face in before returning to Canada Customs, so my Ray-Ban’s had to suffice. This would have been even more useful had I known I about to discover I hadn’t the $3.50 to pay the toll a few hundred feet ahead. I spent my last $40 bucks filling my tank at a bargoon price of $0.612/litre with enough change for a large double/double and a pack of gum (hmm.. about $ 3.50) just outside of Hamilton. Well, I won’t drag this on any further and explain how I got past that mess only to follow a bus running on one cylinder full of Japanese tourists and their Nikons up the Niagara Pkwy only to find out my customer bailed on me only to get caight in traffic on the way home blah blah blah….. Did I mention I placed a quilt cache in St. Catherines? MajBach You can't have everything,where would you put it? [This message was edited by MajBach on May 23, 2002 at 06:35 AM.]

Just because a GPSr doesn't tell you this right away, doesn't mean it isn't so. I believe some GPSrs continue to 'project' your position, based on what was happening before you lost the lock. Someone else pointed out that WAAS has been giving 'less' accuracy in his/her experience. Perhaps there are bugs to be worked out of it yet.
