I believe it will, though I have not personally tried it.

Yup, it works.

Have you looked in the \Garmin\GPX\Archive\ directory?

Yes, and the two days are not there. I'm stumped since I did not delete any files.

How much memory is available on the GPSr?

Thanks to you and Yoss both. I'll have to see if I can get it done. I realize they are horribly out of date, but for now I'd rather spend money on mounts and off-road maps.

Well then, you didn't run out of memory :)

Have you checked EVERY SINGLE track log to confirm the data from the last two days is not present?

Are you absolutely positive you were recording track logs for the previous two days?

Yes as I've been creating adventures and publishing them as I went along. As I was near the last few days I noted that the 17th and 18th of July were no longer present.???? Even check some older ones from earlier months and they are all correct. Also looked at my backup GPSr file on the hard drive and they are not there either. Frustrating. Have not changed setting for recording tracks, and as I sit here with the GPSr connected it is tracking todays data.

Just picked up tempe today.

I think I remember seeing some conversation on here about the best place for the thing.

I was thinking on the side of the tank bag on the loop on my jacket...maybe under the Givi top case.
Also was wondering about how the tempe holds up to weather rain/snow and such.
Any thoughts?

Thanks
Fred

IMO, the best place for the Tempe is on the lanyard attaching your gps to your bike. And it seems weatherproof to me. I haven't paid any attention to keeping it dry, cold or warm.

So I tried the MapSource. When it opens to check my GPS, it does not detect it and only offers me COM1,2,3,4. None of these work. Strange thing is that I'm having the same issue with my Vista.

Any thoughts? BTW I can open all the Montana files on my computer.

I was just playing with it a little more. I've come to the conclusion that the software is so old it doesn't know what a USB is. This version came out when I was using a 10-pin connector.

I think I'll save myself the aggravation and just buy the new maps...:)

Your old map installation will install Mapsource with the map, but you should try to see if the map can be seen by Basecamp. BC is the better way to deal with your maps, assuming your old map can be seen there.

Didn't try that route. I will give it a shot.

No Joy. I see the Mapsource file on my computer, but it is not recognized by Base Camp.

Time to sell the old Vista and Mapsource disc.
