Hi.

I'll try to address the two items you mentioned.

 

Waypoint averaging may be hidden, but going in the menu settings (in settings for any particular profile) will allow you to scroll through all the available menu items. Waypoint averaging may be disabled, select it to enable it.

 

To use it - just activate it then pick the waypoint you want to average on (making sure of course that you are at that point) or create a new one. You should take readings no closer than 90 minutes apart and of course make sure you have the best possible signal/reception.

 

For the img files - just place them in your Garmin folder and as long as the map img file has the .img extension it should be available in your Setup -> Maps settings for each profile (use enable/disable to make various maps active for that profile).

A lot of the "how-to" like stuff gets adds to the posts I make on http://gpsfix.net when the release is made.

 

The waypoint averaging is discussed here in the 2.96 post:

and the any map support here in the 2.99 post:

The easiest place to find which feature was introduced in which version is to go to the Version page on the wiki:

Clicking on the link in the detailed version history section will get you to the GPSFix post for that release.
