GPSr Units / Re: Oregon 450 To Buy or Not To Buy
September 16, 2011, 10:59:46 PM
buy it! i got mine a few days ago and have already downloaded several free maps,gone geocaching and we are taking it to the naches trail sunday. i recomend changing the background to white too.this is my very first gps and i am no computer guy but this thing is pretty basecamp and start messin with it.rei ,even though the sale is over, has good price,great warranty and 10 in stock in tacoma with a rebate too -see you on the trail
I am guessing the original maps that come loaded from the factory,and the operating system for lack of a better term -i have seen 3 or 4 posts that said back up unit as a sort of safety net incase wrong stuff is deleted before they try free maps or cool mods. Then again I could be terribly wrong and no backup is necessary
I got in a hurry the other night and just started downloading stuff for Garmin and Oregon.Hey it was new and the programs seemed necessary ::).I started with basecamp but it had an initialazation error,so i downloaded map source and looked around online and  someone posted the same issue as me and someone wrote retry ,so i did-same result so i saw something about garmin traing center ,if you have low band width ,so i got that too ( i have cable modem i was jus looking for a way to get maps) .So how much of this is garbage and am i right in thinking with a new 450, basecamp is the one to use .It would not kill me to delete all of that junk and start over(NOT THE GPS just the stuff on the PC). Oh yeah,I did the .NET SOMETHING from MS and BASECAMP is working now.

GPSr Units / OREGON 450 help with TOPO and OVERLAY
September 12, 2011, 08:43:49 AM
New to gps and only slightly better at WinXP.Have downloaded basecamp , mapsource and garmin training center .I will be using 450 for driving 4 wheel drive truck in National forests looking for trails and geocaching.On here I found a great TOPO MAP and an OVERLAY for trails, these appear to be exactly what I need/want.Can I use these in conjunction with each other or do I need to get the garmin topo and use the overlay from here? Should I use an SD card for this?
