Re: Elevation recording

By setting the Altimeter in Setup like you suggest, would the Elevation readout in Trip computer be exactly the same as GPS elevation? I can set one of the Trip Computer data fields to display GPS elevation of course. Would this GPS elevation now be the one that is recorded? As I say, I'll have a p...

Re: Oregon 7x0 Firmware 3.70

Garmin introduced new bugs again with v3.70. When navigating some Data fields don't work: Distance to Next shows 0m all the way Distance to Destination doesn't decrease I am not sure about some other fields because there is a difference when Tracklog is On or Off and I don't remember if this is nor...

Re: Saving Track Freezes GPSr.

Strange, we have three identical hardware units with same firmware loaded and we experience a different issue on each unit. I am currently at a loss.

I have not tested saving tracks yet as neither of mine correctly log them.

I was going to revert one of them back to 5.10 and see what happens.....

Re: Saving Track Freezes GPSr.

I have two Oregon 6x0 units, and each of them are having current track issues with firmware v5.30. One of them records track points but never increases the track length (always at zero). The Current.gpx file has track points as expected. The other never records any track points, but track length inc...

I have not changed any settings after updating the firmware, so assume that it is the same for firmware 5.10. I ...

Re: Saving Track Freezes GPSr.

I was just trying to duplicate your issue with my Oregon 6x0 v530 and stumbled upon a huge bug. DO NOT upgrade to 5.30 yet!
