  1. ... with a pretty decent camera.

    - with only 3.2 mega pixels - and 4x digital zoom (not optical zoom), i don't think we can get a crispy and sharp pictures.

  2. My Vista won't work with a Sandisk 4 GB Micro-SDHC. It won't read off a new large map file or the custom POIs.

    - On my Vista HCx, i have Lexmark 4GB Micro-SDHC. And it works very well.


    shiva.. I would highly recommend you not download the 3.0 software upgrade. If you have and it is working

    please let us know.


    - euhhhh...as soon as i got my Vista HCx out of box, the first thing i did is upgrade it to ver 3.0. With 4 GB Lexmark Micro-SDHC installed. I do not have any problem to use the unit. And i have some maps on it: CN2009 NT, Topo US, some regions Quebec non-garmin topo, too. I use it for my bicycle rides, it works very fine.

  3. shivia have you looked at the free garmin format topo for Canada at The Ibycus Topo Map Project (link)?


    - thanks PDOP's. Yes, I already have this excellent Ibycus Topo Map. But, what i need is the elevation profile function. Because i want to figure out an elevation profile of my bicycle rides. Garmin's topo maps can show it. I do not see this fuction on Ibycus product. May be i'm wrong, if Ibycus topo map can show the elevation profile, could you kindly tell me how to obtain this view ? thanks.

  4. Hi, i want to buy online a downloaded Canada Topo Eastern map. But, during apply online form, I do not have Canada in the dropdown list which contains only France, UK, Ireland and US. I know, Canada is too small country for Garmin to take it in serious consideration :)

    - "how does it works" this amazing apply form without my appropriate country choice ?


    Good sunday, all of you.

  5. Thanks for your advice, Motorcycle_Mama. I'll call them this morning about unlock code only.


    let us know how it goes please. from mm's post it sounds like it depends on who answers your call in customer service. kinda like when i call my i.t. help desk at work, i can tell right away if they know what they're doing or just reading the script.

    - always busy friday phone line. Finally, i bought a dvd from store close to home.

    - Amazing HCx model. Same functions, smaller than 60CSx but crispy clear display. Fast acquiring satellite.

  6. If your handlebar adapter mount is too small to fit to your handle bar diameter, remove the screw on it and then use two medium tie-wraps to secure it in place. This actual bike season is my 3rd season with these same tie-wraps attached. No fail, non broken installation even after 3 years use.

  7. Good day members.

    I just bought the Vista HCx, I alreday have City Nav2009 in my pc for my existing 60csx and nuvi760. How can i get the unlock code & product key for my new vista and then install CN on it ?


    Thanks for your help.

  8. Very very easy to convert decimal value to angle value(deg-min-sec) :


    14.877 minutes North = 14 minutes 53 sec North


    7.137 minutes East = 7 minutes 8 sec East




    0.877 x 60 = 53 sec (round of 52.62)


    0.137 x 60 = 8 sec (round of 8.22)



    N46° 25.000 = N 46° 15 min 00 sec


    W064° 26.000 = W 064° 15 min 00 sec


    Note :


    0.25 x 60 = 15 min


    0.26 x 60 = 15 min ( round of 15.6)



    And finally use angle addition rule as usual to find your final coordinates.
