  1. You can save filters for later use, go to: setup>geocaches>filter setup. The saved filters then show up under the geocache screen.

    Oregon betas

    Wow, you sure are obsessive about knowing what model they are using. Just as a note all of the x50 models use the same firmware and all of the x00 model share the same firmware as well.
  3. Sorry Lowrance but you just lost my business.....again. These seem like easy fixes, or maybe a lazy programmer.
  4. Me too!!! I really want to re-buy this gps again.

    OREGON 550T

    Lots of info here: http://garminoregon.wikispaces.com/
  6. It appears they have come out with an update to fix this issues?? Can't test it as I have a Oregon. Change History Changes made from version 3.00 to 3.10: Fixed issue with editing waypoints. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4527
  7. Actually that picture reminds me more of my Colorado using the R&R wheel to choose the various pages.
  8. Sorry I forgot to include that I was running the latest firmware - 1.21. Does 1.4 address the issues that I was having?
  9. I bought an Endura Safari after reading everyone comments on how much they have improved, only to be disappointed upon using it in the field. My first complaint was the compass, with the electronic compass off if takes if forever (if at all) to updated your heading even thought the gps indicates that I am moving. With the electronic compass on and successfully calibrated several times it was just as unreliable, swinging wildly while walking sometimes even pointing the opposite direction. Second complaint, slow screen response, sometimes taking as much as 3 seconds to page through the various screens. While does not seem like a long time it is enough to make me want to press the button again. The user interface seem clumsy and slow, not quick and seamless like on my Oregon. But enough complaining, how about something good. Whatever receiver chip is used in these things it rocks. My track log reminded me of the 60csx and it was able to reliability pick up movement under 1 mph (really good when your trolling on the lake and something that the Oregon has a problem with). I did like the gps but not enough to end my love affair with garmin.
  10. I haven't seen this behavior on my oregon 450.
  11. g-o-cashers-- Disabling or enabling the basemap makes no difference. It will keep redrawing the DEM data when it is be read from the 24k topo maps. If I zoomed out far enough to have the unit use the basemap, I have not been able to reproduce the terrain shading loop. Just as another note- I get a random amount of terrain shades, any where from one(normal) to twelve(which will make the display black) so I don't think it is related to the amount of maps installed on your devise.
  12. Actually the latest firmware for the colorado is 3.4, which is what we are having the display problems with. Perhaps you are thinking of the oregon?
  13. Same thing here, with 24k topo. Except I do not have birdeye installed on my colorado. It seems to go in a loop when drawing the 3D terrain shading.
  14. I would not be surprised if they have the same chipset as the oregon series, as they use the term "hotfix" in their product description. I will not hold out hope for a sirf chipset, unless they forgot to put the sirf logo at the bottom of the page.
  15. Hah... So you were daft/careless enough to drop it, and it's the manufacturers fault? That's very funny! Jon. Actually from Garmin's own description of the Dakota says: "Both durable and waterproof, Dakota 20 is built to withstand the elements: bumps, dust, dirt and water are no match for this rugged navigator." When they use words like “bumps” and phrases like “rugged navigator,” I am sure that it should be able to withstand a 2 foot drop to the floor.
  16. I had that same problem with my 450. I just deleted them and created my own profiles.
  17. Same here no street labels on my oregon or colorado.
  18. From the Garmin website: "Oregon 200 supports Geocaching.com GPX files for downloading geocaches and details straight to your unit. By going paperless, you're not only helping the environment but also improving efficiency. Oregon stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and paper print outs! Simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Show off photos of your excursions with Oregon’s picture viewer. Slim and lightweight, Oregon is the perfect companion for all your outdoor pursuits."
  19. My old Oregon 400t has almost no "air" gaps. However, my new 450t has some more notable gaps, but not enough to make me worry. My buddies 400t sounds like yours, big gaps that you can definitely feel while using the touch screen. I would exchange it and get a different one.
  20. I have seen that behavior too. For me it happens when there is an indian reservation around. There are some lakes that do not even show up because they are all white. It makes no difference if DEM shading is turned on or off. Here is a prime example:
  21. Does the 450 have the same chipset version as the other oregons? or does it have something different than 3.7
  22. You have it set right, the data field needs to be changed from: Location (lat/lon) to Location(selected)
  23. I don't think garmin anticipated people actually loading a cache one by one. It seems more efficient to create a pocket queries that can hold a max of 500 caches per gpx file - this way you would run into your max geocache limit of 2000 first while only using 4 gpx files.
