Re: Readable in daylight?

The Montana 7x0 is far more readable in direct sunlight than any mobile phone! In fact, I think it looks better under direct sunlight with the backlight off than it does indoors with the backlight on. Remember to keep the backlight OFF when outside, it will only run the battery down more quickly and...

Re: GPSMAP 66sr Firmware 3.10

As stated above:
This update is being released in stages via Garmin Express, and should be available to everyone soon.
You will likely see this update in the next day or two.

It is not our desire to circumvent Garmin software distribution policies.

I hope you can understand.

Re: Track Recording with GPS Elevation Data

The Montana 7x0 has a specific setting for enabling and disabling the barometric altimeter, and I have requested Garmin provide this same configuration option to all current models. That being said, I have successfully performed the function requested in the past (without the additionally requested ...

Re: Track Recording with GPS Elevation Data

Interesting.

I was able to do this in 2018 with my GPSMAP 66 using an early firmware version.

Perhaps something has changed since then.

I have sent Garmin a request for clarification...

Re: Montana 7x0 Firmware 8.20

I recommended they not include that line in the change log, but they apparently decided to keep it. You might consider it an 'Easter Egg' of things to c...

Re: Montana 7x0 Firmware 8.20

Temporarily, bug #20 can be fixed by forgetting about the "Automatic Maps". Yes, several bugs can be 'avoided' by not using the Map Page Layer Menu 'TopoActive' and/or 'CityNavigator' buttons, and by not enabling 'Automatic Maps'. Also forgetting the CN maps. I have never seen maps as bad...
