Sweet! Thanks again!
Thanks for the info!
Right on. I think we are all ready to find some more bugs for ya'll to fix in this new version.
We don't normally create or update user manuals for beta software since it is constantly changing and adapting. If you have any specific questions either I or someone else on this forum can probably provide you with an answer.
Doing search and rescue has my teams using GPSon a regular basis and I was recently put into a command position tracking search teams. I have always been a devout Mac user but could not find software or even decent maps to use with my Garmin GPS's. Wish I had looked here first, unfortunately just sucked up and go a toshiba with VISTA:huh Bad thing is I had called Garmin Customer Service and they said that they had NO COMPATIBLE SOFTWARE for MAC !!!
A manual? For a Mac?
C'mon, we're Mac users, we can't read... all we need is pretty pictures.
Well, maybe a help file every now and then for the non-Advriders would be nice.
Both my Macbook Pro and Mac Pro came with a one page owners manual... It read... Plug in, turn on, enjoy. I haven't looked at the manual since!
No need to. It sounds like you memorized it.
More Great News..... GARMIN rocks!!!!!!
great news, thanks for the update and taking the time to listen to our input
i've been away for a long time.
back on track now from italy as a mac user!
full testing of this bobcat now on.
nice to read you all and hope to help developing all the stuff.
And maybe implement that in the same way iTunes does, ie: in the left-hand pane, show Bobcat's folders of "playlists" in expandable folders in the top part of the pane.
In the lower part of that pane, have the attached GPS units appear, where they can be browsed, or have items dragged to and from, just like and iPod in iTunes.
+1 I like the sound of that.
Apple probably won't
I've only just found this thread, I'll be downloading Bobcat tonight. It's been a while coming, but I'm pleased to see the speed of Mac development in Garmin now.
Reading through the thread, and looking at a couple of the user-names and avatars, I was thinking - do these guys know this is a bike forum?
welcome to the asylum
btw, GarminMac may have single handled saved Garmin from it's recent past of PR hell, the code of silence. If it wasn't for him being here, I myself was going to look elsewhere for my next gps. He has also been at other forums as well. One man has done so much to save a company's reputation ...... and Garmin should know .....
How about map display parity between BobCat & MapSource? See examples:
1. Military land does not display on Bobcat.
2. Road types are not easily differentiated, examples being primary and secondary roads. See Oak or King compared to 4 Mile or Military. MapSource shows these as two different line types, BobCat, not so much.
What map versions are you using? When I try to look at the same area on Bobcat on my PowerBook 12" I don't get nearly the detail you show until I go in to the 0.2 mile scale. Even my road names are different, i.e., they usually start with a cardinal direction (W or S).
It does show the different road types more clearly than yours by using either a solid dark line outline or a gray line outline along the edges of the "white worms".
I would include a screen shot but it looks like I have just killed Bobcat again :eek1
This is what my bobcat screen looks like at that intersection. This is with city nav 08 nt.
