+flarbear Posted August 31, 2008 Share Posted August 31, 2008 (edited) The smallest type on the Oregon display is the legalese. At least with UTM coordinates, the next smallest type is the location! Not only is the location very hard to read, you can only find it in one place, the rather cluttered satellite page. Wouldn't it be nice if the Oregon had a page (which could have different-sized fields) onto which the user could put any information from any other page? Kind of a "home page". Perhaps you could even display time in seconds. It is a pity to own what is almost a portable atomic clock that only tells time in minutes. Agreed about the size of the type. But, you can customize the data fields on any of the existing screens, including the Map, Compass and Trip Computer screens - and you can configure any of those fields to show the current coordinates in standard format or in the selected Position Format. The trip computer makes a good place to set a bunch of data fields that you want to commonly see - kind of like your "home page" concept. It doesn't make it any more readable, but makes it more easily accessible. BTW, I find it odd that the default setting on the OR for "Setup->Map->Show data fields" is "Never" in the geocaching profile. The first thing I'd do when I get an OR (I had one and then got a replacement so I've broken in 2 now) is to change this setting to "When navigating" and then configure the fields to show data I'd like to see when hunting a geocache (like distance to Dest at least). The default setup that the units I got had out of the box just wasn't very helpful for geocaching... Edited August 31, 2008 by flarbear Quote Link to comment
