Routing method does not change when switching profiles

Post by RaoulBE » Fri Mar 01, 2019 3:36 pm

Hi all,

I have a number of profiles on my GPSMAP66st and noticed the following behaviour when switching from one profile to another: the first custom profile I use is "Walking", with routing > activity > pedestrian walking. If I switch to another custom profile "CarNavOSM", with routing > activity > automobile driving, the routing is still done with the settings from "Walking". I solve this by selecting the routing method once again, so after switching to profile "CarNavOSM", I select setup > routing > routing activity > automobile driving (although it already WAS selected!). Now the routing is OK.

The same happens when switching from "CarNavOSM" to "Walking". Reselecting the already selected routing method is required. It also happens when switching between other profiles, e.g. from "Direct" to "Walking". Anyone else seen this behaviour?

Which Firmware is on your GPSMAP 66?

I am currently unable to duplicate this behavior, but I may have a newer Firmware.

My GPSMAP66st has firmwareversion 2.50, GPS version also 2.50

Regarding this issue, I have also posted on a Dutch forum (forum.gps.nl, for those who read Dutch...), a reply indicated that this bug has been copied from the Etrex Touch 35.

BTW: I have also send a mail to Garmin on this issue, as described in the "Common Issues > Error Reporting" section.

Thank you for taking the initiative!

If you want to post the link to the Dutch forum here, please feel free!

I am still unable to duplicate with my GPSMAP 66 v2.50, but I will keep trying!

A have also been unable to duplicate this on my eTrex Touch 35t with Classic Mode both On and Off. There must be a little more to it than meets the eye!
