Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Viewing a section of a Track
« on: December 19, 2017, 04:13:02 PM »
Is there a way to view a section of a track or save it after it is downloaded into basecamp? I use my 450 while bike riding and sometimes I would like to know my speed and time on certain sections so I can compare it to my previous times. I've tried to select different points on the track while viewing the map but I can't seem to select a section between 2 points and find out how long it took to travel between the 2 points.  Is this possible?  Thanks

General Discussion / Restoring Data
« on: May 15, 2016, 08:11:46 AM »
I'm trying to move data from my desktop to a laptop using Basecamp.  So I  saved the backup file to an SD card but when I try to restore the data to the laptop it says its loading the information but nothing shows up.  Any ideas?  Thanks

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / MapSource Route Symbols
« on: July 22, 2015, 04:51:18 PM »
When I create a route in MapSource and then transfer to my Oregon 450 every point I used to create the route shows on the 450 as a little blue push pin or balloon.  Is there a way to not have them displayed on the GPS?  Thanks

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Demo Mode Oregon 450
« on: June 22, 2015, 02:29:31 PM »
 I know on my Garmin Nuvi I can go into demo mode and use the gps like I am at a different location and see how long trips are to various locations from any given point and I could have sworn at one time I could do the same on the 450.  I can get to the demo mode but If I choose a location I don't see a way to "set location" at that point.  Is this not possible, was it ever?  Thanks

Using The Maps/Garmin Software / Basecamp Display Question
« on: August 27, 2011, 08:42:51 AM »
Is there a way to disable to the little "pop up balloons" that appear as you move the cursor around the map.  Maybe I just don't understand but when I am trying to make a route sometimes I can't even see the road or trail I would like to follow because of those information balloons.  Also when you are trying to create a route is there a way to make the program follow a specific road or trail without having to manually make so many points on a trail with a lot of turns?  Thanks

GPSr Units / Garmin 450 Tracback Question
« on: August 14, 2010, 03:06:12 PM »
I'll have to admit that I don't understand the Garmin tracback feature.  On my old Magellan Color when you activated the backtrack the GPS would actually give you a target and arrows indicating if you were on course and it would let you know if you were going off course as well as give you the distance to your next turn.  The only thing I can find on Tracback on the Garmin is trying to keep the pointer on the track line which in my mind is very difficult.  I hope I am missing something because I like the 450 but if I am using it right, my old magellan is a hundred times better on trackback. Thanks for any info you can give.
