That photo capability definitely has possibilities. I wonder whether it will work with POIs. Probably not, but maybe in the future.

POIs have had photo linking capability for years.

Oh, great! How do I do that?

 

Yet another feature not mentioned in Garmin's user documentation...

Ummm, sure seems to be there... http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/creating_custom_poi_files.jsp#tourguide

 

By "user documentation," I meant the PDF manual that comes with the eTrex, not miscellaneous information on Garmin's website. But thanks for the pointer to the POI Loader page; I remember seeing that a couple of months ago.

 

In any event, that page says that adding photos is only possible with TourGuide POIs, and that "Tour Guide POIs are only compatible with our MP3 capable nüvi® and zumo® units."

Works so well that today I used my phone to find GZ for most caches, now home I'm wanting to grab my notes and trail, and it's stuck on "saving all waypoints" (5th time, batteries no longer in it). Finally worked with the SD card removed.

Looks like I need to do a master reset (page open ready) start again :(

Uploading a video of it to youtube now, I'll edit a link in when it's done#

 

This was me walking about 25m in a few directions, while the etrex refused to work. pretty clear sky (light tree cover) top of a hill
