After changing formats, it works how it should with the info I'm using (job site locations provided by my work)
I had to figure that out on the side of the road, trying to find emmbeedee by entering his Spot coordinates onto my gps. I got all kinds of weird nonsensical locations I until I realized that the geocaching site coords that my GPS was set for were a different format than the ones the Spot sends out. Meanwhile the black flies were having the time of their lives feasting on my neck. It was an educational day, I never did catch up with him so it was a good thing he had some money for gas since I had his wallet!

Tracks not showing on map?!

Currently on the road, and am running into this problem again.
Does anyone know why on earth my tracks aren't appearing on the map. Not my current track, but those in the track manager which I've set to "View on Map." This morning it was working fine, but as the day progressed it eventually disappeared at one point. I'm trying to follow these!

Any ideas?

How do you get so much of this inside information?

That might make the Montana value low enough that I can justify the expense.

And don't forget the Garmin Nebraska, Ohio, Texas, Utah, Wyoming...

The insider information comes from voices in my head but I can keep them under control if I take my medication.

I have run across the opposite; tracks that I selected in Track Manager to "hide on map" remained on the map view. Going back into Track Manager, they were still showing on the map and I had to select "hide on map" a second time for it to "stick".

This seems to happen to me when I'm managing over a handful of tracks at once; the Montana seems to like me to select to show or hide a single track and then return to map view. Managing multiple tracks before returning to map view has, in my experience, tended to confuse the Montana.

10 years from now, more likely they will be named Shanghai, Beijing, Xi'an, Nanjing etc.

Map on Montana shows shading

I just made the City Navigator 2012.4 on my Montana visible under Basecamp and noticed something I was not expecting. When I view the map off the Montana I get shading showing up. If I view the same version from the copy loaded on my computer (Mac or Windows) there is no shading.

See examples below....

The computer version


The Montana version


Yes I know the zoom level is different, I just zoomed out more in the 2nd image so you could see the shading of the mountain ranges better. It does go away if I zoom in to 30ft but comes back at 50ft or greater.

All views were in 2D view and Basecamp is up to date on both my Mac and Win-7 PC.

I do not have any Topo maps installed on the Montana or computer.

So what is going on here?

I looked in the Basecamp settings and I did not see anything that was set different between the two maps.

Jon...

iPhone images showing up

Maybe you all know this already but I didn't so I thought I would pass along what I discovered.

While I was playing around with Basecamp on my PC I noticed my iPhone was showing up under devices. When I clicked on it all my phone images showed up on the map.



I did not know Basecamp would do that. And the more I zoom in the more images start showing up in the map.

If you click on them it gives the GPS location and will let me mark them as a way point.

I figured images I take with the Montana would do this but was surprised the iPhone images did

Thanks for the link to that post.

Very informative

You have the shaded relief turned on on the Montana.

Any digital Camera "device" will do the same. All that BC is looking for is the DCIM folder on USB attached Mass Storage devices - your iPhone qualifies obviously.

Any ideas?
First, can we assume you meant, "Show on Map" vs. "View Map"? Second, how many points are in your Track/s that is "disappearing at one point"?

Have you tried navigating the Track rather than just following one that you have set to "Show on Map"?

Cheers,
