Re: Any NiMH battery can be charged

Re: Search for cities not working

The bug i videoed seems relatively easy to reproduce on my device at the moment. Are then any crash dumps or memory dumps that can be performed on my device which can be sent to Garmin to allow them to simulate this under debug conditions?

Re: Search for cities not working

See attached video of recreating bug \ crash. Is reproducible > 50% of the time.

Re: Search for cities not working

They have not been able to reproduce.... Although we both were able to crash the device once...... Hmm, it was really easy to reproduce initially and the spinning wheel was a permanent feature which stopped Find Cities from being operational. However when I tried to reproduce this today it seems to...

Re: Settings Saved Under Profiles

At GPSrChive > GPSMAP 66 > Setup, it would be a good idea to distinguish significantly those settings that are not saved to profiles. And somewhere else write them all together. This has been on the "To Do" list for some time, but it is a long and tedious process that would have to be done for all ...
