New Software out for the Garmin 62/78 Line:

I can't find an official description of this from Garmin but when I noticed new software out for the Montana and Oregon series, I tried Web Updater with my 62S and found new software was available.

Version 3.80

This below is copied from the Montana description but it is also now possible with the 62/78 line:

Added Geocaching with Photos (http://garmin.blogs.com/softwareupda...th-photos.html)

When I find the full description of the updates, I'll add it. The only changelist I found so far was in WebUpdater, but I couldn't copy it, of course.

I can't find anyone locally with a 62 in stock to look at. This is annoying.

Our local REI store used to stock them. Don't know if you have one in your area. I thought they were ridiculously expensive several years ago.

If your thinking of getting the 62, at least go with the 62s, which takes microSD cards.

Ours opened last week. I'm going to check them out today. I don't think they are linked in with the interwebs inventory yet.

Disappearing Waypoints

I have an issue with my 78. Whenever I load new waypoints or tracks in Basecamp, waypoints and tracks that were already on the unit seem to disappear. I can still see them in basecamp, but not on the unit itself.

As an example, I loaded a set of waypoints for an upcoming backpacking trip onto the unit. I was able to navigate to them, no problem. I decided to go back in and add one more, and now all the old ones are gone. I can see them in basecamp, but they don't show up in the menus on the device.

Any ideas?

if it's anything like the 60/76, you can sort waypoints "by nearest" which will only display the ones within some radius it decides, or "by name" which will display all of them alphabetically.

It's not. The 62/78/Montana/Oregon etc display tracks, waypoints and routes by proximity only, unless you do a search. So the list always shows the nearest to you first. You can't list them alphabetically.

That's one of the things people don't like about the new generation of Garmin gps.

They can however be sorted by symbol, so if SS gives them a special symbol, it might make them easier to list. But you can't save that list type - it always reverts to proximity.

I have no idea why the waypoints would disappear, unless they've just gone off the current screen for SpeedySheep.

It has nothing to do with sorting. They're all gone but the last one I loaded.

Anyone else have any issue with the gps62 crashing at the active route screen?

Well I think your issue is more Basecamp, than 78. I don't use Basecamp enough to know the answer, but if you ask the same question in the Garmin forums, the developers of the program could help you.

62st and BaseCamp

I use a 62st with NorthAmerica 2012_20 maps installed. I've previously used BaseCamp to plan routes/manage tracks, etc.

Now when I connect my 62st to the PC, I can't "see" the map. It does not come up as an option in the "View" map menu.

Any assitance is appreciated!
