  1. New update out for VIRB Edit for Windows: Version 2.2.5 Changes made from version 2.2.3 to 2.2.5: Fixed more export issues. Fixed a start-up issue.
  2. Yes, I've had the apps for a couple of weeks now. It's working pretty well for me
  3. Have you tried a different uSD card? What card are you using? Brand? Class? Have you tried the "Factory Reset"? Those are the two things I would try first, in your situation. I'm using a SanDisk Ultra 64gb I believe it's a class 10. I just checked and see there's an update for the VIRB. I'm going to update and see if it correct some of my issues. Have you got a Smartphone? The apps have been released and the update is mostly to support the apps.
  4. System Software Update just out for the Monterra! Go to System Settings\About Monterra\System Update while connected to WiFi to find it. (Going from memory on the path here - my Monterra is updating itself so I can't remember the exact path, or version number, or the changelog...)
  5. I think we will see a software update this week... It's out now! System Software Update just out for the Monterra! Go to System Settings\About Monterra\System Update while connected to WiFi to find it. (Going from memory on the path here - my Monterra is updating itself so I can't remember the exact path, or version number, or the changelog...)
  6. Oh yeah, that's the way to fight fire: with gasoline.
  7. Garmin Quest (Not 2) For Sale This is a waterproof colour gps from days gone by which has had a new battery put into it but has not had any use at all since then. It is waterproof, and comes with a powered cradle with a suction base, and a speaker/volume control built into the DC adaptor. It is in very good shape and works exactly as it should. It has 115 Mb of memory for maps, but that memory is not expandable as it has no memory card slot. It does have a USB connection so you could geocache with it, and update maps fairly quickly. Complete specs here. Asking $40 + shipping.
  8. Very well said. Pretty much the same reason I prefer to work with Garmin to help them get it right by giving them constructive feedback.
  9. The 62 SC model? Are you sure? Can you provide a link? I know the 62S and 62 have been on sale for that price. But haven't seen the 62SC at that price. $249 Cad for the 62SC, until Christmas at GPSCentral.ca And knowing this, most stores would probably price match it.
  10. Is the 62s still $199? If so, that's a better deal. You can get free topo maps and the camera is useless next to an iPhone's. The camera is "useless compared to an iPhone", unless you're comparing the camera's resistance to water... in which the iPhone loses each time.
  11. If you need a push, perhaps you can do without.
  12. This begs the question "is there a publicly accessible site that has known bugs listed in it?" You are not last. I bought a rugged mount and have pogo pins on order so I can print more docks. I have not installed it yet so I have yet to see this bug. I wonder what it is that the Monterra does not like about the dock? Brian Off topic but I had to ask: 'Print docks'? You have a 3D printer?
  13. Why am I always the last to know?
  14. Wow, that is quite unusual for the Monterra. Your production Monterra is the first I've heard of having an acquisition problem. Like yogazoo mentioned, make sure you at least once, give the Monterra time to download the almanac. My Monterra can take 20 minutes to acquire a fix if I get into the car with it and forget to turn on the gps before moving. I've had to give up trying, shut it off, and restart it on a couple of occasions. As long as I remember to turn on the gps before moving, it's quick to find a fix. Is the Monterra in a powered Mount when you start it? Yes, a spare "Rugged Mount" I had kicking around.

  16. Interesting article about the technology behind the VIRB: http://www.csr.com/news/pr/2013/coach-drives-garmin-virb-action-cam http://csr.com/products/140/coach-14 "COACH14, with its high quality video and still capability, low power and advanced features, is perfectly designed to suit the needs of action cameras. It includes proprietary Digital Video Stabilisation (DVS) technology which compensates for shakiness without the need for a gyro, ensuring steady footage even in extreme situations such as snowboarding or mountain biking. It also includes market-leading noise reduction capabilities which allows for high-grade footage even in low-light conditions, advanced colour reproduction and improved dynamic range behaviour."
  17. How quickly we forget the Garmin 295W. We still have one of those units in daily use here. Not that I suggest the OP should look for a 295W - just that this is an example of a gps with WiFi.
  18. Have you tried a different uSD card? What card are you using? Brand? Class? Have you tried the "Factory Reset"? Those are the two things I would try first, in your situation.
  19. How was I supposed to know to do that?
  20. Early in the Beta cycle I suggested that exact feature. I'd found mine completely dead on a number of occasions, having been used to using the Montana which goes a long time on its battery. Maybe Garmin's still working on it, but it can't hurt to have more people ask for the feature. Even a profile with those settings would be enough. And I do wish the Monterra had shortcuts as on the Montana.
  21. I have seen a few instances of locking up with 2.80 over the weekend. One of the times I ended up with this in the viewfinder: I would have tried a factory reset, but I've got something else to try which I can't report on right now. But soon...
  22. This didn't work for me. I guess it depends on who answers the phone and how customer-oriented they are. Looks like Garmin's sale price on CNNA LMU and Onetime is on again today, "Cyber Monday". (What a stupid name.) And it works in Canada today too.
  23. Yes, the Tempe performance is far below the legacy unit's performance. I once had the Tempe 150 feet away and still connected to my 78S. And the Tempe didn't need to be in the same room to connect to my Montana or the 78.
  24. GPSCentral has posted their Black Friday deals. The 62S for $199 CD. 62SC for $249, 62ST for $269. Methinks the 62 series might be discontinued soon. Not that that makes it any less useful.
