Is the above list a list of what has the SiRF III chip or will work with the NT software? Or is that the same thing?

Now can you see why I was confused? The Garmin site used to be easy to understand, but that has really changed in the past year...

In the last few days, the content of the lead post of this topic thread was heavily edited and the entire lead post was just now replaced.

To provide tables, the entire post was changed from BBCode to HTML. Unfortunately, due to the limitations of our host software the font size becomes smaller than I would like, when HTML is used.

The entire post was also reorganized, and additional material was added.

I have some other ideas to change it further at a later time, when time permits.

I'll award an "attboy" or "attgirl" to the first person who finds errors before "TheBearclaws" who usually finds my mistakes!

I guess I really am the odd one out having the Oregon. I thought more would use the Oregon/Colorado. Apparently I thought wrong!

Great job Gizmo. Maybe you should contract out your services to Garmin...

Last week, while traveling down to GW7 and back, my 60csx started acting up. At seemingly random times (recalculating?) while driving the screen would fade out and the GPS would shut down. Turning it back on, would fix the problem for a little while. I tried changing batteries, resetting the memory card, with no change.

After getting home, I did some searching online. Apparently some other user's have experienced the same problem after upgrading to v3.90 of the software. I had upgraded mine from 3.60 -> 3.90 in the 30 days.

This week, I downgraded it to v3.70. We'll be testing it next week!

Stumpy75!

Have you scratched your itch yet?

Inquiring minds want to know!

[hr]
And violating my own aversion to posting off-topic, I wanted to mention that I got a nice reply from AccuWeather about their out of date FAQ information regarding their Storm Table definition of the "MESO" parameter. After several emails, they finally admitted the current info is wrong and that they are in the process of re-writing the entire FAQ. It will be interesting to see how their info will compare to WeatherTap's.

New OS as of May 26th, 2009. (Somehow we missed this update here!)

Changes made from version 3.90 to 4.00:
- Fixed several errors in NMEA statements introduced in 3.90.
- Fixed WAAS information not showing 'D' in satellite bars. Error was introduced in 3.90.
- Other minor bug fixes.

The lead post has been updated to include information on how to get MapSource for free legally, the inclusion of info on the FindStatGen macro (creates a great HTML stats for your geocaching.com profile) for GSAK, and several other minor changes and corrections.
