Personally I think they are an improvement over the eTrex. I used to have a Legend C (and earlier version similar to yours). That little joystick was a pain. Pushing it causes a waypoint to be created. I would end up creating a bunch of waypoints accidentally while carrying in my pocket.
The Dakota and Oregon will recognize any file if it has a .img extension. They will also recognize .kmz files ("custom maps"). They also recognized .jnx files, which are Garmin's BirdsEye downloadable maps and imagery. None of these work on the old eTrex models.
However, if you do keep the eTrex, just use an external USB card read and do not directly connect the GPS with the card in it. The eTrex has the very slow USB 1.0 interface, and that's why it took you so long.

The batteries are marked Rechargable NI-MH Battery, 2, AA size. Make is NEXcell.
I asked because our Preservation Society camera needs a replacement since it won't take a charge. It is a Sony which is unique to the camera. They keep changing the battery configuration. It is no longer carried in any stores and I have to send away. Cost is $53.
Thanks for the reply.

Gentlemen: I've run into a little problem using a .gpx format file for a download on our daytrips pages. If you got to this page http://www.in-the-desert.com/2000flushes.html on our site and click on the Download the Garmin GPS file HERE at the top of the page, you can no longer download the topo track file. When this file is a .mps file it is downloadable. Have any ideas? When you click on this now it opens a meta data file in your browser than won't do anyone any good?
