Interesting placement. I did three side by side on the cover. I still have the occasional shutdown, but I can't correlate it to use on the TW in the dirt (very buzzy), on the BMW on the slab (pretty smooth), and in the Toyota (very smooth).

It seems totally random and only happens three or four times a month....


The ear plugs are two years old, so I am replacing them with fresh ones.

I've found an interesting....feature...I'm not sure what's going on...

I've got CN installed and enabled, firmware 4.7. I do a search for a "recent find" POI and hit "go" (automobile routing). I got the following screen:



Since that didn't make much sense, I rotated to portrait and got this:



When I touch "yes" I get this:



If I touch "no" it just bails on routing.

Not sure what's up....

Mine and my wife's 650 have never shut down once since we put the one earplug into each, under the battery cover itself. We all know how expensive they are, so I prefer to use only one.

My experience with 2 different 600's in rough off-road use says foam doesn't work...
best solution is to throw the rechargeable battery in the trash and use AA lithium's

The only time I've seen this come up is when the only map that was enabled was the base map. Did you inadvertently change profiles that disabled the CNNA map?

Maybe you throw them out but I'd think most people don't have any problems once the battery's shimmed with an earplug.

That has happened to me when I created a route in BC on a different version of CN than was installed on the Montana.

Yup, that's it. Every damn time you update CNNA on both BC and Montana you have to go through every single non-direct route on BC, change it to direct, then back to automobile or moto and let it re-calculate.

Or, like me, you can just save every route as direct in BC after fiddling with it on CNNA and automobile profile to get it correct for autorouting. Of course, when loaded on the Montana with a new CNNA version, it may not autoroute the way the older version did, so back to above kludge.

I haven't updated CN since I got the unit and the POI it puked on has only been on the recent find list a couple of weeks... Most of the recent finds work ok too, I could only find a couple of others that caused the puke. I'll look at it some more and see if I can figger it out...

What am I doing wrong, surely the basic idea of a GPS is to navigate in a straight line to a waypoint and the distance to it is essential information?

Bump. Any ideas?

New software out for the Montana. Version 5.10 shows up in Garmin Express. Haven't tried it yet.

Change Log:

Changes from version 5.00 to version 5.10:
Added support for additional ActiveRouting cartography
Improved support for Garmin LakeVu HD cartography
Fixed issue with incorrect letter capitalization of certain map points
Fixed issue where wirelessly transmitting a geocache to another device would result in an error message when trying to view the received geocache in BaseCamp

Loading CN to Basecamp on laptop

I know it's in this thread somewhere. I dont know how to structure a search to find it....

I have CN with lifetime updates loaded on the Montana. I want CN on Basecamp without the Montana connected. I want the ability to create routes on the laptop without the necessity to connect the Montana all the time.

Please point me to the post with the instructions or tell me (again).

Thanks

John

When you install maps you need to check this box in the Lifetime Map Updater (Mac version displayed but there is a Windows equivalent).

Is it just one waypoint or does this happen repeatedly with all waypoints used to Direct Route while in Geocaching Profile?

I've never seen or heard of this as a "bug" so I'd guess that you have some corrupt data (waypoint). Delete it and create a new one.
