Ahhh, load your Tracks onto a zumo3x0 or NAV5.

Just kidding. The Montana Track Manager does not support Alphabetical Sort.

Or any sort. I think. Or I couldn't find one anyway.

EDIT: The next part I typed is wrong:

It LOOKS like you can move all your tracks onto a computer, delete them from your Montana, and copy them back onto your Montana in the REVERSE order you want them to appear -- first file you add to the Montana will be at the bottom of the list; the last file you add will be on top. (I think I remember that right, but maybe you'd better experiment.)

What a dumb idea...

Thanks for checking that out. I was in a bit of a hurry when I noticed the page - I should have looked further.

Quick question. What is the difference between Elevation and GPS Elevation in the Montana?

Thank you for that. That explains what I was looking for. Tried looking for that info a while back, but couldn't seem to find it then.

I suspected that Elevation was working off the baro as it tended to bounce around a bit more than I cared for. Think I will stick with GPS Elevation as I only tend to cal the baro once a month at best. My used for the baro is only for storm predicting.

So, how did this work out for you?

I believe that all new units list Tracks in Track Manager by proximity to first Track Point.

I also think you can move tracks back and forth between "archived" and "favorites" using Explore on PC with GPS connected.

Correct on the "sorting by proximity" and although you can use a computer to move Tracks between Favorites and Archive you don't need one as you can do that right in the Track Manager.

Track sorting Alphabetically is one of the features I appreciate most on the NAV5/zumo3x0 units. It would really be nice if the On The Trail handheld teams would figure this out but I guess there just aren't enough folks that care about Alphabetical sorting.

Virb / Montana Power recording

I've posted this in both the Virb and Montana threads.

Does the Virb log power data from any of the popular bicycle sensors?

What about the Montana (pretty sure the answer is no)?

Can power data from another source be imported to a track log?

I will buy a Virb soon (waiting for another sale like the Cabela's deal).
I also want to start monitoring my power output on the bicycle.

To get the power data it looks like I need yet another device!
I use the Montana on my bicycles. It's a bit large, but it does a great job and I have one devise for my cars, motorcycles, bicycles, hiking, kayaking, etc. The ONLY thing the Montana doesn't do is log power data.

I don't really want to buy a Garmin Edge unless I have no other choice.

Montana and Maps

Hey Guys,

I have a montana, 24k west and southwest downloaded to my computer via dvd, and city navigator from garmin on microsd card. I am trying to install the maps to my unit, I understand that I have to load all the maps and city nav at the same time and also I understand that once loaded I can only look at one or the other. What I need to figure out is in map install how to make the city nav show up and get it to install on my new 16 gb micro

You should read this: http://garminmontanagpsr.wikispaces.com/Maps

You don't need to load all maps at once. Only older units like the 60CSx require you to load all maps at once.

You can load each map into its own separate file as long as you use MapInstall.

Forget about using Mapsource, if that was your plan.

I just can't see the city navigator files in map install that is the problem. Also when I run Map Install it says I will be deleting all files before adding the new map image
