Trip Odometer?

Is it possible to reset the trip odometer, without resetting the trip/track/route?

And a feature request (like it will do any good). I would like to be able to have the gps stay on (without the prompt) whenever it looses power.

Bad date on Vista.

I have an Etrex Vista that is stuck on the last date that I turned it on before the software was no longer up to date. I have tried using Garmin Express and Garmin WebUpdater, but neither one will recognize the GPS unit. I have also tried WebUpdater on an old XP laptop also with no luck. I am connec...

Re: 24K Maps

Thanks for all the info gpsrchive and ivhs72. I don't understand the purpose of being able to accept a 32 GB micro sd card, only to loose all that by using a Garmin map card. Also what happens if you are following a zig zag route along border, do you have to keep removing the card and installing the...

Which 24k maps are you referring to? Did they come preloaded on a Garmin uSD card?
Yes, it is those preloaded maps.

24K Maps

I have the Garmin 24K maps for my 66st and they seem to work fine with the card in the unit. Is there a way to install them to the unit and free up the card slot?

Re: Trip odometer in Expedition mode

Whenever I turn on expedition mode, the trip odometer is dramatically wrong. As an example, after a 2 1/2 hour walk, I apparently traveled 59143km and had a total ascent of 9842m. I've looked at the tracks and they appear reasonable so while I'm sure expedition mode is less accurate, it could a lea...

Re: GPSMAP 66st Crashes While Charging

On Sunday I got the bright idea to try powering the 66st by using the USB ports in my truck. These ports are also connected to my Sync 3 Infotainment Center and the Garmin went into USB data mode.I unplugged it and removed the batteries. Five minutes later (with batteries still removed) the unit fin...
