Re: Live-Geocaching: Expected behaviour when updating?

One problem is that you cannot load PQs directly, only Lists. I see my PQs on my device and can select them to be loaded, thus, I do not understand your observation. Will need more information.... On the geocaching webpage, PQs and Lists are seperate menu items. Pocket queries are available under P...

Re: Live-Geocaching: Expected behaviour when updating?

One of the more efficient methods of using GCLive is to create several 'Lists' or 'PQs' for your Groundspeak account, then sync those with the device when desired. You may even want to do a specific PQ just for Mystery type Geocaches, which you can selectively sync with your GPSr after updating coo...

Re: GPSMAP 66 Firmware 3.10

Now that I've time to make use of the 66 every day on holiday, there isn't a day going by that either the device hangs, crashes or does unexpected things. All out of the blue without specific reason or repeatable circumstances. For a device (as expensive) which is out for a year now and had several...

Re: Loading Waypoint, Tracks etc. with ever power up

What is your precise process for transferring PQ's from GC.com to your GPSMAP 64? I want to know exactly how you do it so I can duplicate your process. Thank You! I plug in my GPSr into my PC via USB. The GPSr shows up as a disc drive. I open it to the Garmin/GPX folder. I open my C: drive in a sec...

Re: Loading waypoints, etc. related to power source

We'll, I'm throwing in the towel on the 66s. :( I've been using Garmin products for over 10 years, and this is the worst product roll out I've ever encountered. :evil: This GPSr has the most promise I've seen in quite awhile, and I purchased it when it became available back in November. Since then I...

Re: Loading Waypoint, Tracks etc. with ever power up

My usual pocket queries, same as I load on my 64s. On the 64s it takes about 10 minutes the first time, then boots in a minute on subsequent power on. With the 64sx, it takes 10 minutes every time I power it on. I did call Garmin about, they told me they would open a case for their engineering staff...

Loading Waypoint, Tracks etc. with ever power up

Still having issues with every time I power up my 64sx, or change batteries, it updates tracks, waypoints, etc. and takes about 10 minutes to do that. My 64s only does this when I've updated my data, and then boots quicker every time after that. Any idea if Garmin is aware of this??

Re: Loading waypoints, etc. related to power source

With the latest update to my PQs, I now have another question. I loaded my PQs by over writing the old ones, not deleting them but just copying over them. When I turned the unit on, it took it's usual over two hours, and no progress bar movement. I turned it off (by removing the batteries, since it ...

That's funny as BaseCamp does not support GGZ files!
If I understand this, you can only load from Basecamp???
Not true in the least bit.
That's what I thought but the message from Garmin made it sound like that.
