On rereading my posts, I guess the name is okay, as nobody has chastised me for mentioning  "Zagg". is the best!!

Well, update on ruined screen.

Zagg told me to basically p*** up a rope, however the company I bought the GPS and Zagg from 3 years ago offered me a VERY favorable deal.  Replaced my  Oregon GPS for a nominal sum plus S & H.  Talk about customer service going above and beyond the call of duty!!

Unit just arrived this am after completing the paperwork on Friday. :)

I don't know if company names are allowed to be posted here (moderator?), but if anybody wants to know, I'll send you their name.  Canadian company with really good prices and obviously exceptional post sale service.

Unfortunately, part of the screen, think like ripples in water, remains on the Zagg.  The part left on the Oregon is almost useless.

I just used a powerful magnifying glass on the screen.  It is not residue.  The top layer of the screen has actually been pulled off in placesleaving small divots. I'm sick.  Anybody else with a touchscreen thinking of buying  a Zagg - Invisishield- be forewarned, once it's on it's on and will separate your screen if you try to remove it!!!

This might be the wrong place to ask,but I need help.  I had a Zagg protector on my Oregon 450 for about 3 years and tried to take it off yesterday.  Half came off as it is supposed to, the other half left a residue of hard, dried glue.  I've tried citrus based cleaner (recommended by Zagg), alcohol, WD40, Boeshield all to no avail.  I'm chicken to use anything stronger for fear of damaging the screen.  Any ideas?
Garmin support solved the problem.  It required 2nd level support-whatever that means.  Remote desktop and Garmin loader solved it after about 20 minutes.  Garmin denies it was their web updater that caused the problem but I noticed on their Oregon wiki, others have had the same problem.  It appears web updater attempted to load x00 software update  instead of x50 which really confuses the gps.
When I power my Oregon up the screen immediately freezes at "validating update 0% complete"after the startup text.   If I repeatedly power off and on it sometimes will go to the normal home screen.  I checked the software version - I recently updated - and it now reads 3.71 beta in the "about" page.  I don't think that was what I loaded.  I tried updating again to 4.32 the latest, and I still get the frozen screen, and when I finally get it to power up it still indicates beta 3.71 software and gps software 4.48.  Anyone know what's going on?  None of these versions are what they're supposed to be.

GPSr Units / Waypoint markers Oregon450

I don`t know if this is a Mapsource or Oregon problem (or newbie user).  Just recently purchased a Oregon450 and downloaded some topo maps from here, and routes for bike riding from a cycling website. There are in both gpx and mps format. In either case, the waypoints appear on the Oregon as fairly large blue pins, usually obliterating all or part of the name or description of the waypoint.   In Mapsource they appear as small black dots, which is what I would prefer.  I have been unable to find a setting that will do this on the Oregon.  Using the waypoint manager in the Oregon shows the present setting for the waypoint as a small dot but the pin still shows.  Anyone else experience this?
