Notes:

 

This release is intended to support Connect IQ developers to begin creating apps, widgets, and data fields for Oregon 7xx using the new features introduced in Connect IQ 2.2.

My oregon 750t will not take the update. Just ignores it, reboots as normal, and the GCD file is gone.

 

Anyone else get their 7xx to take 262 gcd?

Mine did. I had no issues. Did you ever get it to load?

Had to downgrade to previous firmware then it took the 262 OK.

 

At one point, I had a Garmindevice.xml that showed 2.62 and a system.xml that showed 2.60 - all good now though (I think)

Yes the Gold master version is 2.7. Did an update via Garmin express.

 

The pages on live GCing are better

Down loading PQ/LISTS is better now

The lists page shows status is synced / not synced for each list

 

At long last after 3 months I have got it to load a list to the device, painfully slow

It first loads the "headers" fairly quickly and then says other data will be loaded in the background. Flip back to the list screen and it will show % loading progress. Really slow

I can only do this via Bluetooth and the iPhone app G Connect

The iPhone is connected via Wi-Fi however

 

It will not load lists only via Wi-Fi, it just fails. I have an" issue" registered with garmin technical to resolve

It shows weather, emails etc on " straight" Wi-Fi but not load lists

 

The good thing is that the PQ is being fully loaded, logs, hints, descriptions etc. This is the first time this has happened in 3 months since new and now I don't need to hook up to the pc!. Fingers crossed

However it will take a long time to sync 1000 gc's

I was hoping 2.7 would fix our issue in the 700. When we start the day we reset all trip and track data... and at the end of the day save the track. When downloaded into BC it always show a straight line from the last turn on.. What are we doing wrong?

The one with the straight line should be the active track. If you saved a track, there should be another one without the straight line.

When you save your track, it shows the filename it's going to use on the screen. Mine defaults to the date and time for the filename. You can change it to something more meaningful if you like. When you go to import the track into BaseCamp, look for the same file name. You typically don't want to import the current track.

I don't get the lines when downloading saved tracks..even the named ones in my Monterra.. just this Oregon 700.. And I see that the saved track is connected...to the line..to the last turn on or use location.. I'll work more with it since it's new.. but I never get this with the Monterra and my Montana that I had I believe. Again we clear the trip and current track data before the hike and after it's got its fix..I check the Trip computer and it shows that it has cleared but again after downloading the track (saved at the end of the hike,etc.) it has lines coming to it from the previous fix say at home or whatever..
