This update seems to cause my unit to crash whilst using the geocaching functions. Anyone else having this issue?

Gonna need a lot more information than that...

 

What are you doing when it crashes? Same caches every time? What settings are you using? etc. etc.

It was when trying to log the cache as found. I reverted to the previous version already and it works as it is supposed to now. So you have been caching with your Oregon with this update with no problem?

I'm having the same problem as MaliBooBoo. When attempting to navigate to a cache, my 700 completely locks up. I'm not even getting to the point where I can log my find.

I only did one cache this weekend, but it was at the halfway mark of a 5 mile hike, and all went well, until just a few feet before I arrived back at the trail head when my unit froze. But I wasn't doing anything with it, just wanted to check the total distance traveled when I discovered it frozen, and checking the GPX track later revealed it froze maybe 200 feet before the trail head... I will send my device files as described at the Oregon 7x0 wiki > Common Issues > Error Reporting.... BEFORE I do anything else with the unit.

I hope this fix takes care of our altitude It's always higher by 3 or 4 hundred feet then the actual elevation.

Is that true even after you calibrate the altimeter?

Yes.. we chose "want to calibrate" then "do you know the correct elevation" then entered it..  Auto Calibrate was still on. Not sure if  Auto should be off and if that would help. it was still off at the end of hike.

The total descent and total ascent was the same footage ( numbers) as my Montana 680 but the elevation data was and always is about 300 ft different then my Montana. I checked the Montana against my Garmin Drivesmart 61S and it is the same as well as mapping programs for the correct elevation at the trail heads. Her Oregon is always  off.
