GPSr Units / How to navigate a route with an etrex Vista HCx?
« on: September 22, 2009, 08:29:58 AM »
Hello everyone, newbie again. I switched from a venture to a vista, and bought five (!) microSD cards for $2.90 each (!!) so I have a lot of streets and topo data for a large area around where I'll be moving  :)

Now the question: I don't have city navigator, but can easily map the route that I want to drive using the ibycus street maps (or to hike using the topo). My problem is: how do I have the vista map my route AND center the display on my current position (so that I can visually follow the route even if I can't get guiding prompts to work)?

I searched for "navigate routes" and only came up with two hits about transparent maps (which I have no clue about, but pretty sure not what I need). Apologies in advance if this is a dumb question... the vista manual is not very thorough.

thanks!
K
