learned something new about my 276C, faillure to communicate when loading maps

In the past I have had occasionally problems putting maps on my 276C. It seems it was always when loading several map sets on the unit. I am currently using Garmin Europe, Basarsoft Turkey, OSM Turkey/ Balkans and Turkey Topo. I have a 2 GB chip, but it happened with the 512 kB memory module as well. It would do all its work and be just about 100% complete sending the maps, the final step, to the unit and then fail, telling me there was a communication error. Very frustrating after waiting for an hour or 2 or more for it to complete.

The last couple of times I plugged the GPS in to the wall charger when loading maps and when doing so I have not had the same error anymore. It completes loading maps every time. I know the battery was not the issue, it was plenty charged to complete the operation. I have no idea why this seems to make a difference, all I know i works for me.... I think.

Interesting. I had a problem loading my 376c last time. I'll have to try this out.
