Oregon 750t experience

Recommended Posts

I have now had my new 750t a couple of weeks. There are still lots of thing to find out, but a couple of annoying things I have found are the following:

 

- Downloading Geocaches via WiFi does not include previous logs

- Refresh of the map when you are driving is often slow, and results in white rectangular areas on the screen

- Zooming in or out often means that the update of the screen stops for some time and you can't see where you are

- If you leave the Geocache map and try to get back, you often end up in a map zoomed out to several kms instead of the one you just left

 

My previous GPS was an Oregon 400c and I did not have these problems (admittedly it did not have WiFi donwload).

Once you open a specific geocache, it will load that information if you still have an internet connection.

 

- Refresh of the map when you are driving is often slow, and results in white rectangular areas on the screen

 

How many maps (and where did you get them) are enabled? Maps with large tile size refresh slower than maps with smaller tiles sizes. Multiple maps enabled means slower refersh. What is your map speed set to?

 

- Zooming in or out often means that the update of the screen stops for some time and you can't see where you are

 

Again, see previous response.

 

- If you leave the Geocache map and try to get back, you often end up in a map zoomed out to several kms instead of the one you just left

 

Do you have Auto Zoom enabled?

 

My previous GPS was an Oregon 400c and I did not have these problems (admittedly it did not have WiFi donwload).

 

Huge difference between those two GPSr. Huge learning curve. Your new 750t is far more powerful, and much more customizable than your previous unit. Take some time to learn how to use it and enjoy the process!

 

 

Please see my responses, in GREEN.

Do you have Auto Zoom enabled? Yes I do, should I turn it off?
