General Discussion / Re: Electronic Boarding Pass on My Dakota 20!
« on: December 01, 2011, 11:17:13 AM »
Surprisingly, the Dakota doesn't have a picture viewer.... that was my first thought too.

EDIT

NOT Correct.  http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4527   Changed as of November 16th!  Time to update!

You don't actually make a map per se; I used Google earth to georeference the pass and load it into the "Custom Maps" folder.

But do you really want all those TSA guys' initials on your GPSr?  Didn't you have to leave your DK with the jetway attendant when you boarded the plane?  Was the georeferenced image good enough to scan?

I presume you are being sarcastic with the  comment about TSA initials.    And no, I take all my electronics onboard with me when I travel worldwide.  Never had anyone even consider stopping me.  Why would a standalone GPS be an issue anyway???

And as I said, the image was just fine - it is a JPEG.

General Discussion / Electronic Boarding Pass on My Dakota 20!

I think this is relevant to this part of the forum...  Using the Custom Maps feature of  my Dakota 20 I successfully  loaded an electronic boarding pass  and "pinned" (geolocated) it to the airport I was departing from.  Boarded the plane successfully.  Sure had the ticket agent wonder WTH?   No more paper!

Anyone else try this?

35
Possibly to DL the Garmin Communicator Plugin?  That is used to talk between the GPSr and your PC.

36
I use the Ibycus maps with my Dakota 20.  Just load the ones I need (MTB and ski areas).  They overlay wonderfully onto the supplied base map  And where pray tell does one buy a 3 GB MicroSD card??  :)

37
Typically in Windows when you select multiple items for deletion only one window comes up asking if you want to delete x number of items that'd be fine for me.  Or as you say, user selectable ("Do not show this message again " etc. checkbox )

38
AFAICR there was no confirmation of deletion window that popped up.  Bad software design - and bad on me for not saving the track in an archive OUTSIDE of Basecamp (which I now do religiously).

39
That ONLY works if you back up a file first. If you transfer the current file from your GPS and do not save that raw file or so a file save from within Basecamp it appears you cannot restore it.  I was surprised that you can delete a track with no confirmation but sadly that appears to be the case.

I accidentally deleted a list item in my Basecamp library.  Any way to restore it ( and no, I had not backed up the data previously....)

Just took a look at the manual:  Do you have your gpsr set to GARMIN mode? (Assuming using connection)

So far I have yet to successfully connect to the DNR Garmin program with this unit, although that is what I did for years with my Garmin GPS 12.  I keep getting the "Port 1 does not exist" etc.

That is on 2 different computers with a new unit and new cable.  I could try on my son's laptop, but shouldn't the 60 CSx be able to readily connect to DNR Garmin without these problems?

Should be according tot he docs.  I do not have a 60 CSX so I cannot help.

Sure sounds like it was an issue on your PC. Could be hardware or software.

.gdb files are Garmin's proprietary format for user data so I doubt that any third party software can import them. But you can use Mapsource to export your waypoints/tracks/routes to a .gpx file (use the dropdown menu). A lot of programs understant .gpx files. No experience with ArcGIS, but GlobalMapper can certainly import .gpx files. It will probably work - look at your ArcGIS documentation.

Luckily I had to do this myself.  :)  Use  http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/mis/gis/tools/arcview/extensions/DNRGarmin/DNRGarmin.html

How cool is that?  And FREE (as in free beer)

Same routine worked for me on Win 7 64 bit.  I still can't believe Garmin is trying to sell that SW.
