Re: New Garmin eTrex 22x, 32x

I was hoping this new eTrex would finally get a faster processor, if so I would probably buy one to replace my Oregon 700. According to {link} map panning is just as slow as with the 20x/30x so that's very disappointing and not what I want. Garmin seems to put all the power inside a brick like the ...

Re: Total ascent way too low (by 20% - 30%)

I want to do this test, but it may be a little while before I can complete it. I have the required equipment, but a few other things have to line up correctly before I can complete it.

Re: Map not refreshing when in Geocache-View

"useless" may be an overstatement, at minimum. The GPSMAP 66 Geocache Page Map Tab default zoom level is 1.2m, same as the Oregon 7x0 series, introduced more than 3 years ago, and I have not heard of anyone complaining about it until now. The primary function of the Geocache Page Map Tab is to load ...

Re: Map not refreshing when in Geocache-View

Re: Total ascent figures

I just want to examine how the GPSMAP 66 recorded elevation changes during your hike and compare to elevation data for the same location, hoping to spot something that may help determine why this is happening.
