Re: cannot edit routes downloaded from Basecamp

While changing the route type to Direct before downloading is a good work-around, the whole issue is a real pain when you forget to do so and you're deep in the bush before you realise. I don't think it is satisfactory, and have reported it to Garmin as a bug in either BaseCamp and/or the GPSr.

Re: Bug: Routing uses method from last selected profile

Just to repeat what I posted on the other thread on the same issue, the bug only happens when the profile being switched to has the routing method select to "Prompted". If the routing method has been selected to "minimise time" etc, it works correctly. Also, if the GPSr is already routing when you s...

Re: Routing method does not change when switching profiles

Raoul,
I discovered this fault only occurs when you are switching to a profile where the routing method has been selected to "Prompted". If it has been set to "minimize time/distance" etc, all is good.

Does this agree with your findings?

Also, what maps have you got loaded ? Garmin ones ?

Re: crash when moving waypoints

Garmin Australia replied and said updating the software/firmware was a necessary step before their engineering team would pursue it further - so I did the process and, lo-and-behold - nothing changed! (apart from me having to go and re-customise the pages that I restored to defaults). It was interes...

Re: crash when moving waypoints

Garmin replied and wanted me to try a Master Reset and a software reload. I declined saying that I didn't think the disruption caused was worth the very slim chance it would fix the problem. However, they did point-out the method of moving a waypoint by entering through the Waypoint Manager - and th...

Re: crash when moving waypoints

Yes, Garmin use 'Software Version' repeatedly, which has created confusion frequently in the past. We refer to the GPSr 'Operating System' as the 'Firmware', and the GPS chipset (the processor that reads the satellite signals) as 'GPS Software' for additional clarity. For example, your PC may use W...

Bug: Routing uses method from last selected profile

When you change to a new profile and start routing, it uses the routing method from the last selected profile. When you then go and re-select the currently configured routing method, it recalculates using the correct routing method. Test methodology (100% repeatable): 1. Select Driving profile (that...
