Re: Route display on Oregon 700

OK - got it at last! As per your directions went to the custom folder on my garmin 700 and changed the name of "Custom 40" to Pin, Blue.bmp and the blue pin is substituted with what was my Custom 40 symbol (a small dot) in the route shown on the 700. Many thanks for responses but how is the average ...

Re: Route display on Oregon 700

You state that the route file that I sent did not function as expected. The route was prepared in Basecamp on a pc and then sent to my Oregon 700 via a USB connection. However I have now sent you via the web site the file that is in the Oregon memory in Garmin\gpx (actual name Wimbledon Common Test ...

Still unable to replace the blue pins on a route when displayed by a Garmin 700. I don't see any way of altering the display on the unit itself for an ordinary route. (Waypoints however can be displayed with any of the many symbols in the library + whatever custom symbols you put in the custom secti...

Re: Route display on Oregon 700

Thanks for the reply (sussamb) but it does not solve or clarify the issue. Have you tried your suggestion on an Oregon 700? One can add custom symbols easily enough but there is no way to overwrite a garmin symbol such as blue pin or rename it or substitute it to get a different display on the gps. ...

Route display on Oregon 700

I have a new garmin 700 after having a 600 for several years. I got to know the eccentricities of garmin and basecamp quite well with the 600 and thought that I would have no problem with the 700. For a number of years forum sites were full of complaints about ‘the blue flag plague’. This related to...
