I noticed when I started using Basecamp, my gps unit has double waypoints in it, now.  I extracted all data to basecamp, then deleted all the waypoints in my GPS.  Then I sent all the data from basecamp back to my GPS, but only got some of the waypoints back...maybe 25% of them.I can see all the points in basecamp, but they're not transferring back to my GPS.  Any suggestions?
I got Mapsource from this sight and have been using it with my Oregon 450 for almost a year now.  It's been working great, until recently.  I tried to download some recent waypoints and tracks, but only the tracks download.  Even if I click on the box that says waypoints (on the recieve from device menu) I get a pop up box that says "The selected device has no waypoints on it".  I used this mapsource last year to download all my data from my old E Trex, and I downloaded data from my Oregon before, but now it's not working.    I can edit tracks on mapsource and send to device OK.  Is there a setting I'm missing here?
GPSr Units / Distance calculation on oregon
March 02, 2011, 04:46:56 AM
The Etrex Legend had a feature on the map page called distance calc.  I could move my cursor to a point on the map, reference that point (without marking waypoints), and calculate a distance and bearing from there; again and again without marking or tabbing out of the map page.  Can the Oregon do this?
  Also with the Oregon, when on the map page, I tap the page and get the pushpin.  An info bar pops up at the top. It displays bearing, distance, and either coordinates, elevation, or land feature.  Can this info bar be manipulated to always show coordinates, or be altered in any way?
GPSr Units / Projecting a waypoint
February 28, 2011, 05:26:39 AM
I know how to project a waypoint.  I have an Oregon.  Let's say, I have 2 waypoints away from where I'm at currently.  Is there a way to find the distance and bearing between the two points?  The closest I can figure it out is to create a new route.  This gives me the distance between the two points, but not the bearing.  Any thoughts?
I recently purchased a garmin oregon 450.  I downloaded mapsource and gpsmapper from your site.  I then downloaded NE USA Topo part 1 to mapsource and loaded it into my GPS.  It worked great.  Now I wanted to see if there's a way to get some actual scanned usga  maps to mapsource.  Those are the most detailed maps I can find.  I've been using paper maps printed at home for years.  Is there a way to get these on my GPS?  Or, are there other maps available that are as detailed as the quad maps?
