GPSr Units / Garmin InReach SE
June 24, 2017, 06:36:14 AM
I just caught a video on YouTube for the Delorme InReach replacement.
Dissapointing. I was hoping Garmin would have a unit that was GPS _and_ Iridium in one. Pity. I'd buy one if it was GPS, GLONAS, and Iridium with a nice sized (5"?) screen.That size chassis would also give room for a decent battery and all-weather sealing. Maybe next time.

General Discussion / Basecamp 462 won't install.
November 22, 2016, 03:43:13 PM
Looking for some help. New laptop (early Xmas present) has Windows 8.1 (ugh) with the "Metro" GUI (ugh x2). Trying to install Basecamp. The download package is 462 and it hiccups on the .net install.
Am I selecting the wrong package? The description says it's good for Vista thru current Windows versions.
Something is not right.

GPSr Units / Turn off Alarm
December 20, 2015, 04:39:13 AM
Picked up a Garmin GPS MAP 64S, refurbished unit. It has an alarm setting that has re-occured twice at midnight (!) but after the first time I thought I had erased the setting.
Funny thing is the alarm started after I put the Receiver in a clamshell case. Surely the case has nothing to do with the alarm?
I suppose I could do a factory reset (?) to clear all alarms but that erases everything and seems like over - kill.
I used Main Menu - Alarm - Turn Off, then Main Menu - Alarm - (reset to 00:00 AM) and moved the 64 to a soft case, just on General Principals. Any other settings I need to look at?
GPSr Units / Wither Garmin
November 29, 2015, 07:42:18 AM
I'm wondering if Garmin will bring out anything new for the Handheld market segment. Lots of room for improvement on their part but the only thing I've seen, the eTrek35, strikes me as being more of a place holder than a new unit.

Any thoughts?

I've got a Garmin (62ST)with the 100k topo pre-installed. Have ignored that topo so far. But this discussion makes me wonder if I can un-install that Topo or do I need it to make other maps work correctly?
GPSr Units / GPS Antenna for 7" (kitkat) tablet?
July 29, 2015, 02:43:16 AM
I have purchased an inexpensive 7" tablet and want to use an external GPS antenna with it. The tablet has KotKat and a USB connector and I will use Gaia as the App.

Have you tried an external antenna? Which one?
How practical was this configuration (as versus a built-in antenna)?
What pit-falls did you encounter?
