  1. For the life of me I can't find my CD that came with my 60c. I'm lookign for the waypoint manager software. Is there a place on the garmin website to download it? If there is I can't locate it. Anyone have a link?

    Nevermind. After further research I fount it. I was thinking it was a free download. I didn't think to look in the "pay for" download area.

  2. Add another satisfied customer singin the praises of Garmin tech support.

     

    I called and told her I did NOT have the original reciept and what happened. She said that this time she'd set it up under warrenty. I have the address and RMA number and just need to get it packed up for shipping.

     

    Thanks for all the replies/advice.

  4. I didnt' intend to crosspost but i posted the first in the wrong place and don't know how to move it to here....

     

    Here's my post as it's more relevant to this section...

     

    I had the 60c attached to the bike handlebar mount. The bike fell over and the force of the impact caused the round attachpoint to break off. Now it wasn't just the round attachpoint that broke on the unit. It was actually the grey plastic on the back of the GPSr.

     

    I've emailed garmin, but no reply yet. What are the odds of them sending me replacement plastic? I know it won't be under warrenty and I dont' have the original reciept anyway. I just want to pay for the plastic and have them send it so I can swap the electronics to a new case.

     

    Any chance of this happeneing? If not, how much do you suppose it'd cost for garmin to do it NOT under wareenty?

  6. I don't have the link handy but there is a place at the garmin webiste that's called 'compare units' you can select a couple of units and it'll put the stats side by side.

  7. However...since 9/11/01, you're not allowed to transport batteries on a plane, be it opened package or not

     

    So how do all of the nifty electronic gadgest like headphones, portable dvd players, cameras, gps's, etc... get powered during flight?

  8. When I think of speical equipment I'm thinking more along the lines of SCUBA gear, 4X4, wench, rappeling gear; things like that.

    I've always considered my wench to be special.

    LOL, yeah, I read my spelling mistake after I hit the post button and really meant winch. I got a good giggle out of it so I just left it misspelled. ;)

  9. The one I and many many others started out with is the Garmin etrex yellow. They start right at 100 bucks and is a great little unit. Garmin has the 'geko' line out now too which are very simple and compact, but I have not personal expierence with the geko. I'm sure others will chime in.

  10. I hate to be 'that guy' but is this a legitimate question or are you just trying to advertise your item under the ruse of this question?

     

    I mean if one were really concerned one might would have wanted to ask this before setting up the auction and NOT posting a link to the item that is already up for auction.

     

    If I'm off base here then please accept my apoligies.

     

    edit: spelling

  11. Have you tried contacting garmin? Though I've never owned an etrex with the stick I've read these boards enough to know it's been a problem for many many people.

     

    As far as which GPS is best... that's another can of worms to open <_< .

    You'll get different answers from all sides saying theirs is best. Personally I've owned two garmins adn been happy with both.

  12. I got my 60c yesterday and just downloaded xImage form the garmin website. I got it loaded and all I can see is how to change waypoint icons and to take a screen shot. I think I read it on these forums, but I was under the assumption we could change the splash screen on the GPSr as well. Am I rememberign wrong or jsut not seeing where to do it?

  13. I've taken your advice and contacted Garmin at that email address with my concerns. I talked about the maps being a couple years out of date (in my case one state highway has been in place and complete for over 3 years and is not included in the basemap).

     

    I also threw my 2 cents about not having an expansion card slot available for the 60c.

     

    It wasn't an angry or threatening letter. Just an end user expressign his concerns and letting the manufacutrer know what we (I) as an end user would like to see implimented in the future.
