S&T to GPSU to 276C...HELP!
I am trying to learn how to transfer routes/waypoints from S&T to GPSU to my 276C. I can do the S&T to GPSU just fine, highlight the route and waypoints ok, but I can't get them to show up on the 276C when I click the upload to device icon. Some guidance would be appreciated...I need to get good at this before 8/24.
Thanks for your help,
Bill Rauschenberg

GPSU? :huh

I think he may be using GPSUtility which is a nice data editing tool which has been around (with updates) for many years. It will open and display GPS Waypoints, Routes & Tracks on any georeferenced maps files. Recent improvements to MapSource (mostly with tracks & maps) have reduced the need for GPSU

I don't have an answer for the problem other than to suggest checking for current version of GPS firmware and of GPSU. Falcon, have you had any luck transferring any data using GPSU on your current computer and the 276?

I'm so far behind I hadn't even heard of GPSU, hence the question. But, now that I have, I'll find it and play around with it and see if I can work his problem.

EDIT: Took a quick look at the GPSU site --- the free version has some limitations ...

Freeware version
This version is limited to 100 waypoints, 5 routes of up to 10 waypoints each, 500 trackpoints, bitmap image size of 2000x2000 pixels.

Sorry, I meant to direct my question to Radar.

Is this something GPSBabel can't do?

I have never used GPSBabel. Having said that they are somewhat similar. Babels strong suit is the number and type of data formats it supports and converts. GPS Utility does not support as many formats but has better data editing tools and map tools. Utility can load any georeferenced map or if you know the location of 3 points on a map (IE a map you have scanned) it will geo reference it for you. Utility can only transfer data (waypoints, Routes & Tracks) to or from the GPS, not maps.

Used to be a bigger deal before Garmin beefed up MapSource and the available map products.
