There's a groove which you can likely create yourself as bli55 did in his post.

This is the wall I was in front of yesterday:



These are all standard sizes but they also had metric.

Or maybe you were thinking of the security part of it, the little pin in the head of the screw which keeps a standard Torx driver from working? These "Tamper Proof" ones have that pin.

You can't insert via points in uploaded routes. If you do, it wipes out all the other via points except the destination. Also, one can't edit an uploaded route.

Just this past 4 days I got lots of practice with this while riding in a rally.

Are you serious? I'm a "route" person and this was a common use case for me using my 276C.

Wow, neat hardware store! I'll check around town. My local mom-n-pop doesn't have them, nor Radioshack.

Let me know if you can't find 'em. I will be back in town on Thursday so I can get you a couple.

Anyone else seeing this problem? Anytime I try to simulate driving a route, I end up in the Atlantic ocean south of Accra.

My software version is 4.70 and it doesn't seem to matter which maps I have enabled. This happened on various profiles with different maps in each.

WHat are the exact coordinates in the Atlantic Ocean?

I have an erroneous track file that took me out to the coast of Africa and back at MACH 10,000 (super high speed). Of course, I never really was there. I'll have to find the GPX and compare the coordinates if you can share yours :)

Awesome! Doesn't look like a DeLorean, but you apparently have a Time Machine!

Here is my Glitch: Look slike it goes tot he SAME PLACE. Why do Garmin GPSr want to go there so badly?

Oh, and look! I was doing 812,700 MPH! (Now that's a FAST time machine!)

You know, that nearly looks like a default number, with that northing of nearly 0, it just seems strange, like something went belly up, the easting also is strange, as I assume you are in the states.

It nearly looks by the map that the point is directly south of the Garmin Europe HQ and on the equator

Just a thought?

Cheers

My track anomaly did not occur while simulating anything. I was simply recording my travels as I do every day, and when I got home one day to open my saved track record, I saw that I had warped through the very fabric of space and time to visit the coast of Africa. Several times. This very glitch has occurred on multiple occasions, and I have multiple track records which display the odd behavior.

WHY does the Garmin briefly think it is near the coast of South Africa, for just a SINGLE track log recording point, then snap right back to it's true position?

It does look like some stack overflowed or whatever, and it took me back to a zero location. I've heard of it happening to at least one other person so I think it's time to report it.

Will you start a thread about it at the Wiki? If you know the other party with similar experience, ask them to chime in?

I will assign a Bug Report and we can all send a copy of the report to Garmin with our supporting data files?

I will need to know as much detail about exactly what you were doing with the Montana when it occurred, so that I may write the Bug Report as accurately as possible.

That's a Toyota Land Cruiser. Better than a DeLorean, anyday.

I'll start a thread tomorrow. The other guy's on Facebook, so I'll see if he wants to play.
