Re: Activities & recordings - a bit confused

First, I apologize that not all pages here at the wiki are complete to answer your questions. There will always be more information to add! 1. In the past, all 'outdoor' GPSr (aren't they all?), the type we use when we are hiking, hunting, fishing, etc, simply recorded track logs which we could view...

After Oregon 6x0 Firmware 5.50 Update, About Page Still Shows 5.40

You have a keen eye!

That information was available here on the Firmware page moments after firmware version 5.50 was prematurely released.

The issue has been resolved and all traditional methods of updating your Oregon 6x0 GPSr should be successful now.

Thank You!

Re: MAPInstall problems

How do you know map segments are left out?

Are you certain your GPSr has not reached its map segment limit?

Upload a map with missing segments to a file hosting website and email us the link.

Re: Problem with my 66s....

If the GPSMAP 66 has a uSD card installed, remove the uSD card and reboot the device. If this is not successful, try the Forced USB Mass Storage Mode procedure and remove all personal data from the device and reboot. If a corrupted file is the problem, this should restore proper operation to your GP...

Re: MAPInstall problems

Thanks for the tip about the JaVaWa Device manager - looks very useful. That software is listed in the Software page of just about every wiki here... You've had success with MapInstall? I downloaded the latest from Garmin's website and it doesn't work for me. Do you know what version you have (and ...

Re: MAPInstall problems

Strangely enough, just this week I sent two maps to my Garmin GPSMAP 66 using BaseCamp 4.7.0.0 and MAPInstall 4.2.0, and neither exhibited this commonly referenced failure. I was not expecting it to work, but it did. Both .img files are complete and fully functional on my GPSr. Just sent a third map...
