Re: crash when moving waypoints

Exactly like Micro$oft was with Windows 95/98/ME/XP: "You have an issue? Just reinstall Windows!"

Re: GPSMAP 66 Firmware 3.00

You got that right! Memory is cheap and they can always just throw a patch on the internet when necessary, so sloppy lazy coding is the rule of thumb now!

Even more confusing is when you use WebUpdater to update the GPS chipset software, then re-boot the unit, it gives you progress for updating the firmware!!
