  1. Heck, how about a Garmin device being nicknamed "Rusty", since the last name of one of the founders of Garmin is Burrell (People's Court reference).
  2. It's on the WebUpdater.
  3. I don't think it can do that. You'd need a separate charger.
  4. NOTICE ADVISORY TO NAVSTAR USERS (NANU) 2008024 NANU TYPE: GENERAL *** GENERAL MESSAGE TO ALL GPS USERS *** GPS SATELLITE SVN23 (PRN32) WAS USABLE AS OF JDAY 057 (26 FEB 2008) BEGINNING 1801 ZULU. *** GENERAL MESSAGE TO ALL GPS USERS *** POC: CIVILIAN - NAVCEN AT 703-313-5900, HTTP://WWW.NAVCEN.USCG.GOV MILITARY - GPS OPERATIONS CENTER at HTTP://GPS.AFSPC.AF.MIL/GPSOC, DSN 560-2541, COMM 719-567-2541, gps_support@schriever.af.mil, HTTP://gps.afspc.af.mil/gps MILITARY ALTERNATE - JOINT SPACE OPERATIONS CENTER, DSN 276-9994, COMM 805-606-9994, JSPOCCOMBATOPS@VANDENBERG.AF.MIL
  5. There is one exception to the Metroguide paradigm, and that is Metroguide Canada. It uses different coastline data (DMTI Spatial vs. Navteq) and it autoroutes.
  6. Seems like an odd response, seeing as how Magellan has had 3-axis compasses for several years - apparently successful, although I don't have any direct experience with them. Just offhand, I can't think of why adding a third axis would dramatically increase calibration needs and temperature/pressure sensitivities over the 2-axis versions. I don't particularly want one that would work in any position - upside down for instance, or even vertically, although I know some would like that; I just want one that would make it less sensitive to being held perfectly level. Perhaps Magellan has patented the technology they use to implement 3-axis compasses, and Garmin simply doesn't want to license a competitor's technology.
  7. You might want to try simply using two routes instead of one, with a direct route in between.
  8. ← I have the model that has all the features I need.
  9. It is also common to see 'garming'. Oh, so those eBay sellers enjoy garming the system?
  10. NOTICE ADVISORY TO NAVSTAR USERS (NANU) 2008016 NANU TYPE: GENERAL *** GENERAL MESSAGE TO ALL GPS USERS *** THE GPS COMMUNITY GAINED APPROVAL TO SET SVN23 (PRN32) USABLE. BASED ON CURRENT PLANNING, SVN23 (PRN32) WILL BE SET USABLE ON JDAY 050 (19 FEB 2008). AN ADDITIONAL NANU WILL TRANSMIT NLT 4 DAYS PRIOR TO THE PROJECTED USABLE DATE/TIME. IF NECESSARY, ADDITIONAL NANUS WILL NOTIFY USERS OF ANY CHANGES TO THIS PLAN. ANYONE EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS OR HAVING ANY CURRENT CONCERNS WITH PRN32 SHOULD CONTACT THE APPROPRIATE AGENCY LISTED BELOW.

  11. Why not make a version of the Colorado that floats in water? That's one of the reasons I have a 76 model GPS.
  12. My goodness. And I've been told you really only need one.
  13. The eTrex Vista Cx has removable memory, but no high-sensitivity receiver. The "S" also stands for an electronic compass.
  14. "Yesterday" and "Tomorrow" should be defined with reference to UTC.
  15. Did you say More Bells and Whistles?
  16. Here. The graphic on the page linked below should clearly show that WAAS is now available across Canada: http://www.nstb.tc.faa.gov/24Hr_WaasConusLPVCoverage.htm It won't see #35 or #47 anymore. Those satellites stopped transmitting WAAS signals on July 30, 2007.

    waypoint symbols

    AFAIK, you can't change the waypoint symbols included with the GPSr. You can, however, download more symbols into your GPSr as custom waypoint symbols. Garmin provides a program called xImage that facilitates this.
  18. Since one can only put a maximum of ten images in one post, I've had to make a second post to add more images. Here are the example screens of these extra Sun & Moon features. Ephemeris: Twilight times:
  19. There are a few improvements to Garmin's GPS software for the units stated that I believe would improve the usefulness of the device. Right now, when you select the "Time of Day" data field in the big numbers screen of the Trip Computer, you get this: It should include the date, as shown here: ---- When viewing the description page for a Custom Point of Interest, you get something like this: The title at the top should reflect the filename that the Custom POI is located in pre-POI Loader, as shown here: ---- All custom waypoint symbols have the same name: The unit and xImage should allow for those symbols to have custom names, like so: ---- When I use the Highway page in nighttime display mode, the way it looks now causes my night vision to be compromised: It should instead look like this: ---- Here is the menu you get when you press [Menu] on the Sun & Moon page: I would like to see a couple of extra options added:
  20. Just to clarify, I download the waypoint information into my TI-89 Titanium manually. To get the waypoints into my GPSr, I use MapSource or the Garmin Communicator plugin on geocaching.com.
  21. And then Geocaching version π!
  22. I'm thinking what the OP was asking for was the point on Earth that is most distant from any cache.
  23. I noticed that in TOPO U.S. 2008, just like in TOPO U.S. 24k National Parks, every single point in the U.S., not just those points on contours, has elevation associated with it, even points on the water with an obvious elevation of 0 m.
  24. TI-89 Titanium graphing calculator??? You're right, I'm surprised! How do you transfer the cache info to it? And what made you think to try it? Kelly I got my graphing calculator before I got my current GPSr. This particular graphing calculator has a USB interface. TI provides calculator software called "NoteFolio", which allows me to store text notes in the calculator, and a computer program called "NoteFolio Creator" permits me to type the notes into my computer—which is much quicker than typing them directly into my calculator—and then download them into the calculator so I can quickly refer to them while out in the field. Cool, eh? Here are a couple of screenshots of geocache information in my calculator:
  25. Getting a satellite fix is a prerequisite for getting the correct time.
