Although minor this one is nice - thanks.

 

you can now select your GPS

 

Is this working for anyone else? I can pick my manufacturer "Garmin" but the device list does not populate - the little spinning gif keeps a spinning though.

Finally, after so many years! Miracles do happen :( ...

 

The edit profile page looks pretty messy though ...

 

And the "My Profile" link in the nav bar is missing an image.

That is still in the process of being updated. It should start working soon.

 

Both pull downs have "select manufacturer" - is that a bug already in it?

GPS rating section doesn't work right. It mandates a comment after choosing stars. Entered a comment but it doesn't recognize the comment. Keeps asking for a comment.

 

Also, would have been nice if it would allow input of more than one GPS. We use a handheld plus a Autonav unit (nuvi 660).

Same here. I guess we need to wait some time for all the features to be activated. "I'll be back."

 

Same here :(

 

Also if you click on the Review Forum Signature link you only get a blank box :(

 

Signature: Review Forum Signature

====================================

 

I downloaded the Delorme browser plugin and it seems to work fine and will download cache info directly to my PN-20 as long as I'm doing it from IE, but doesn't recognize that I've downloaded and installed the plugin when I'm accessing from AOL 9.1. It continues to prompt me to download the plugin whenever I try to send cache info to my GPS. Should it work from within AOL or is that not supported?

There are system requirements listed right there on that plugin page, and I don't see AOL listed. Perhaps you should complain to DeLorme.

Would like to post 2 locations. Home and a vacation spot. Currently we can select only one. The improvements to our accounts are fantastic!! Thank you. :(

 

Ah, now look! That's the basic concept of what I requested earlier today!

 

Opt-in!

 

Plus, what I would like to see most is that these waypoints are spread over the site, like in maps and such.
