    I agree. You don't always need to see every street name, but I do wish I could at least see the cross street names.

    This was one of the things that bugged me when I moved from a GPSMap 60C to a 2720.

    That is interesting. I down loaded it last Thursday from the Garmin web site.

    http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3825

    It is one download for both Mapinstall and MapManager. It lists 4.0.2 as the version. It is insuated that both are the same. But I got Mapinstall 4.0.2 and MapManager 3.0.1. Would you mind doubble checking your MapManager. If you use it. chip

    I will, but I first have to dig my Mac out of the box it is hiding in ;) Perhaps another Mac user here can confirm which version MapManager actually gets installed with MapInstall 4.0.2.

    Thank You.

    At this point, with the information available, I can only conclude that Chip is missing something in his workflow that is nearly impossible to detect without looking over his shoulder :hmmmmm

    I wish someone was looking over my shoulder. Talking with this forum is as close as I can get. chip

    You could share your desktop through a remote session. I used to do that a lot when I worked on the help desk at a community college. Even Garmin took over my desktop last Fall to help me sort out a map upgrade issue.

    Hello, hope you are well.

    I wonder if anybody else can replicate the same device crash as me. Or if its just specific to my device. I have detailed model and firmware version but may happen to other devices and map/firmware versions.

    Montana 650t.
    Firmware version 4.9
    Europe CNNT 2013.10
    Worldwide DEM Basemap, NR

    power on device
    Open draw
    Select track manager
    Open archived tracks
    Choose a track
    Click elevation plot
    Scroll to a point in the elevation, I chose the highest point.
    Click the three bars at the bottom, then view map
    When map displays, click three bars at the bottom and choose setup map
    Choose select map

    BOOM, flash of white and powers off.

    I don't think this is by design. I have no need to do the above key sequences while viewing a track but it crashes every time.

    If anyone else could test this to see if its a global device issue or just mind. I would appreciate it.

    Regards

    Dave

    Please report to Garmin Software Team as outlined here.

    If I, or two more users can duplicate this, I will add it to the bug list at the Montana wiki.

    I tried a search and not getting any info. Does anyone know How to reset the Total Ometer? I can reset the Trip Ometer but the Total is not reseting.

    Here is how but be very very careful

    Select trip computer then the triple lined box at the bottom. Then select reset and " reset trip data"

    DO NOT SELECT " Reset ALL Settings" like I did, this does the same as a master reset. It should not be there under trip computer, stupid frigging Garmin

    Odometer reset requires a master reset of the gps unfortunately.

    The info below is from the Garmin Montana Master Reset page.

    Performing a master reset will reset all settings. While user data* are not likely to be erased, a backup of data is recommended; refer to the FAQ article "How do I back up user data from my outdoor GPS with a USB interface?" before performing the master reset.

    To perform the master reset:

    Power Montana off
    Press and hold finger on upper left side of display (be done in portrait or landscape mode)
    Power on device
    Continue holding until the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears
    Release finger from upper left side of display
    Touch Erase
    Allow device up to 20 minutes to acquire satellite data with a clear view of sky

    That won't reset the Odometer.

    Here's another Garmin Help page on the subject.

    "The Odometer data field will be an ongoing recording of all trips performed on device. This cannot be reset using the Reset Trip Data option. A master reset will be required to reset the Odometer. Click the appropriate link below for master reset instructions."

    Thanks for the info on the reset. I was hoping for something else besides a master reset. But, looking like that's the only way to do it. I had already tried every thing else I've read on the matter.
    Sheesh! I'm missing the 276C already.
