  1. If you have the geocaching dashboard active, that compass always points to the NEAREST geocache.
  2. Are you running the latest firmware for your 62s?
  3. That is only if you are using MapSource, which is the wrong software for your Oregon 300 anyway. You should be using BaseCamp with the Oregon 300. For more complete information on this subject, try this link. I'll check that link later when I get a minute but that quote I posted was from a tutorial on using Basecamp to transfer the map files, not mapsource. the GPSFileDepot tutorials are very old, very out dated, and largely incomplete. Using any recent version of BaseCamp will not result in older maps being deleted, exactly as the tutorial I linked to will explain.

  5. I disabled the Custom map and then enabled the Garmin topo map , however , the Garmin topo would show it was "Disabled" and would not display again . Eventually I went to Mapinstall and removed the Garmin map and reinstalled it again. Now it works OK so I removed the Custom map from the Micro sd card and put the empty card back in the unit. I read the link you posted and will put in a draw order and adjust the transparency . Draw order is important, but the transparency is only to allow you to see the google earth map under your custom map, for editing purposes. The final custom map will always be fully opaque, never transparent.
  6. You have to set the draw order for your Garmin Custom Map just like all other Garmin maps. I suspect your KMZ file has a draw order lower than the topo map, thus the topo map is drawn over the KMZ. Read This.
  7. If the JPG was not a progressive JPG, and if you save the KMZ file in the \Garmin\CustomMaps\ directory on your 62s, yes. More info here.
  8. Actually, Garmins software for many of their uber expensive top of the line GPS units have suffered greatly in the past twelve months.... They are producing pure GARBAGE right now, while focusing on pushing out new products and all but abandoning the current market.... They may not realize it now, but if they continue on the current path, in another twelve months they will not enjoy the market share they do now. I am not buying any new Garmin products any time soon....
  9. The \Archive\ directory stores past track recordings of where you have been - Save these files for future reference, and/or delete them at will. The \Current\ directory contains the Current.gpx file which is the current track log of where you are now - If deleted, will be re-created at each power on. The \Nav\ directory is where the Montana stores your desired destination when you are navigating to a specific waypoint.
  10. This can easily be accomplished by the user in Setup > Main Menu
  11. I am unaware of any method to alter which application (page) is activated when selecting 'Go' from a cache description. but you may find the information you need at the Garmin Oregon wiki.
  12. NOT FIXED. I was hiking today and still getting the excess mileage on my trip odometer. It's the same incorrect functionality it's been doing since inception. I know not all agree, but I just don't get the logical sense for the units to log mileage and tracks in this fashion. Contacting Garmin, for what good it will do. This was my experience also. I reported to montana.beta@garmin.com
  13. Excellent advise. I have had similar experience, and now do exactly as you suggest.
