Re: GPSr freezes when I stop navigating to a geocache.

I am pressing Where To? > Stop Navigation after I arrive at the geocache coordinates, and do not want to log the cache.

GPSr freezes when I stop navigating to a geocache.

I am using a 66s with FW 3.40. When I stop navigating to a geocache the unit freezes up and I need to remove the batteries to reboot the GPSr. This happens when the cache has not been logged and I want to navigate to another cache. This has been happening regularly, sometimes once a day.

Re: Basecamp Windows 10 Installation error.

A quick search on the internet showed that there are many other Basecamp users with the same issue with windows 10. This seems to be related to windows 10 rather than basecamp. see link below. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-performance/loadlibary-failed-with-error-87-th...

Re: OSM maps freezing up device

I have been using maps from the site below for a number of years without any issues. On a GPSMAP 64s, GPSMAP 66s, Oregon 650 and Oregon 750t. The FW has always been up to date on all units. The maps used have been for many countries around the world, and all have been fine. I use the Generic Routabl...

Re: Lost Satellite Reception

I lost satellite reception only after the unit was in use for approx 4hrs. Turning the GPSr off and back on solved the issue. I did not use it for another 4 hrs, so cannot comment on whether it would happen again. I think the issue was related to the time in use and not the batteries The full factor...

Re: Lost Satellite Reception

I'm surprised no one has commented on this issue.

Last month I did a full factory reset on the unit and everything has worked fine since. Let's hope this will permanently fix this. :D

Re: cannot edit routes downloaded from Basecamp

Same for me, (I use Mapsource), on both GPSMAP66s and 0750t. I can only edit routes created on the GPSr.
