Yes. one was attached to the right shoulder strap of my hydration pack and other to the left shoulder strap. I will repeat next week and post results, if different. Maybe just a bad day.

GPSr Units / MTK vs SiRFStar
« on: October 28, 2009, 01:44:26 PM »
Know this issue has been discussed quite a bit on other sites but would appreciate input from you all.
I thought the MTK "drift" issue had been fixed (receiver inaccurate at walking speed) Attached is route using 60CSx (SiRFStar) and my new Colorado 300(MTK). 60 CSx is light blue and correct while red is the colorado. Tracking is just horrible and at one points has me in the lake and at another in someone's yard. Minimum cloud cover and canopy on this day. Average Pace 4 mph.  Is this similar to other's experience and if so the Colorado seems pretty poor for mapping etc? Software and firmware all updated.
Thanks

General Discussion / Map Quality
« on: October 28, 2009, 09:47:29 AM »
New to site and just installed NE USA Topo Part 1.
Seems the contours are much better compared to Map Source 1:100,000 but nowhere near the detail of Topo! or the USGS Quads.
Not complaining and appreciate the work everone is doing but just wanted to set my expectations to reality
See attached screenshots

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Re: Mapsource problem
« on: October 28, 2009, 09:16:37 AM »
Thanks all!
I decided to do a new download and install to the location the installer recommended. it now seems to work fine. Just seemed easy than messin' with the other stuff
The reason I wanted to place on a cd is because that is how I use the original Mapsource with the 3cds(TOPO, 1:100,000 and Not TOPO 2008). I open Map source and it prompts me to enter the apprpriate CD (East, West, AK/HI). Been doing it that way for years, probably back to when storage space was more of an issue.

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Mapsource problem
« on: October 27, 2009, 08:43:34 PM »
New to this site and just downloaded NE USA Topo part 1 with installer. When I went to install, I change directory to a cd drive (this is how I use my Garmin Map source). everything seemed fine, all the img files copied to the cd but error message when attempted to open map source. Said I had to reinstall. So I uninstalled and don't know how to find the installer to attempt reinstall. All image files appear there as does the TDB as well as NE USA Topo Part 1 .img. Is there any way to salvage this w/o starting over and spending 8 hours waiting for this to download again? Plus any suggestions on how to avoid this (assume the answer is to install on the directory that the installer suggests)? BTW, Map source is functioning fine now with the Garmin map source cd but NE USA Topo Part  1 does not appear in the drop down menu. I have Map source 6.15.6 and and Trip and waypoint manager v4
