+BikeBill Posted May 5, 2014 Share Posted May 5, 2014 As my Oregon 600 and I are getting used to each other, I’ve been generally pleased but ran into a problem once I put the Garmin 24K routable topo maps in it. I had routing set to ‘Hiking’ (and ‘Lock on Road’ set to ‘No’) when I was geocaching and found that it wanted to track me to streets as if I had it set to ‘Automobile Driving’. It not only wanted me to follow the streets but when nearing the hide, the compass would point to a nearby street instead of the cache. Not good. I looked for a way to turn routing off and didn’t find such a choice. What I did find under the routing menu was ‘Direct Routing’ which seems to do what I want. It gives me an ‘as the crow flies’ direction to the cache. My question is: Am I doing this right? Is this how the 600 should be set for caching? Quote Link to comment
