Re: Very long startup-time

Thanks for the detailed explanation. Yes, there are about 30k Geocaches in the file. I just was suprised, because loading the new file was much faster. What could be improved is the progess bar: Because it was remaining a "zero" (no progress visible), you can have the impression that the device free...

Re: Garmin 66: Firmwareversion 4.8

Good first news: The apps are still there after this upgrade. The active profile was changed (map setting, position format), but compared with the experience after the last version this is acceptable.

Re: For what is the Android-Software used in the Montana 7xx?

If this is true: Why is this not listed on devices like the GPSMAP 66?

Re: Geocache not shown with "Geocaching Live" (FW-Version 4.2)

It would be nice, if there is a setting if you want update existing Geocaching-data or not when using GeocachingLive.

I was suprised to read about the (new) behavior of GeocachingLive. Is that documented somewhere in the (new) manual?

For what is the Android-Software used in the Montana 7xx?

On the copyright page on the Montana 750i I found a reference to the "Android Open Source Project" for used software used?

Does anyone (gpsrchive?) knows for what this software is used?
Is this code available (used on the device) as it is open source?

Re: Geocache not shown with "Geocaching Live" (FW-Version 4.2)

Thank you for your efforts to reproduce this. The cache appears in the geocache-list on the device and also it has now synchronized it as „found“ (I logged the cache on the PC at home, not on the device, what is unusable for me). But the cache still does not appear on the map (only if i select the c...

Geocache not shown with "Geocaching Live" (FW-Version 4.2)

Strange behavior today: I loaded geocaches with "Geocaching Live" arround my current position and they appeard. But one traditional Geocache (https://coord.info/GC6Z3RE) within others did not. - Geocaching-Filter was "show all", Settings checked ( similar cache nearby appeard) - No special character...
