General Discussion / Track Point Count
« on: April 14, 2011, 05:14:25 PM »
I'm looking at two different tracks of a similar Hike route (same trails) on wikiloc.com. One is mine and the other by a different member. They both cover approximately 10.5 miles. Mine has 170 track points and the other has 2,282. Not even close.

Is the a setting on the GPS that sets the number of collected points?

Is there a benefit to the greater number of points?

Can I download a track from wikiloc and:

1) see it on my computer on a map i've downloaded from GPSFileDepot?

2) see it on that same map that I've installed on my GPS?



GPSr Units / 60CSx - Track Log Questions
« on: March 29, 2011, 04:53:37 PM »
I think I'm close but would like to confirm and I have questions (if this is too many questions I'll understand).

To set up tracking I do the following:

Main menu, choose Tracks.

In the track log window:
Select ON or OFF
Q: Is this how I START and STOP tracking?

Choose SETUP..
Q: this is so if the internal memory fills it will start to over write the oldest track? If I don't check "Wrap" what happens when the memory full? The unit stops tracking?

Then choose Method, Interval, Color & Data Card Setup
Q: What exactly am I setting up on the Data Card? To duplicate the track that's on the internal memory?

At this point the unit is ready to start tracking (right?). I hit MENU twice then page to the TRIP COMPUTER page. I can now hit menu, choose RESET, choose what I want to reset. Now all fields are set to zero and the STOPPED time starts to count.

When I choose to end TRACKING I go back to MAIN MENU select TRACKS and SAVE.

Q: After I've saved the TRACK, and go to the TRIP COMPUTER page all the fields (Moving Time, Stopped Time) are still active. Should I be turning Tracking off or something?

Thanks for you time,

General Discussion / Slow learner questions

Hi Folks,
I hope you all can tolerate another round of newbie questions. I'm very new to all this.

Just purchased a Garmin 60 csx and I'm taking it step by step. I'm going through the Owner's Manual. So far I been able to mark, name and delete waypoints. I've  also used the track log feature. I have much to learn with the unit it's self as I make my way through the manual.

I'm a bit confused on the computer side of this. I'm using an iMac. I downloaded Base Camp and the New Hampshire TOPO map on this site.

Question: Am I able to open and use the downloaded map (NH TOPO) on the computer? If yes how do I do it?

Thanks in advance,
Garmin 60CSx
iMac 2010
