I didn't go back in the thread far enough... yeah, I was able to click on it in Safari and the GPX file is saved. Not sure why his browser is trying to download PHP.

Because it's Internet Explorer. A real PoS if there ever was one.

I'm using Chrome; it downloaded a gpx file for me.

advrdr, sounds like you need a different browser.

Does manually changing the .php in the file name to .gpx fix the problem?

Oh well. You have issues. Make sure you save the file and then open it manually in bc instead of letting the browser try to open bc.

Every browser I tried (including exploder) will give me the option to save the .gpx when that link is clicked on.

Try a different browser?

Probably an anti-virus issue. BitDefender or Symantec to the rescue.

I used firefox lastnight and it worked good so it must have been a IE problem.

Now, apologize to your poor little Montana. Its feelings are likely hurt and an apology will go a long way....

You have no reason to rant about Garmin.
There was no e-mail, I received the return instructions and RMA number over the telephone, and the guy never instructed me to remove anything.

To that end, I'm not going to worry myself over it, I spoke with Garmin today and they said basically "you're not getting it back", (much nicer than that of course), I'm going to consider it a $20 fee for a new device and move on.

Still sucks about losing the Bicimaps though.


EDIT: FYI, that was not a rant...that was more like "This sucks for me, don't do this". Browse around Jo Momma if you want to see a rant.

Sounds like you have good cause to rant about Garmin though!

Send an email to Bicimaps. I had to replace my 376c (years ago) and they were willing to transfer the maps to my new unit. IIRC, I just sent them some proof of the replacement (Garmin email, RMA, etc) and they issued a new unlock code.

It's worth a try.
