It's common knowledge. If you'd asked the question then, you'd have got that answer.
Thanks dude, I'm an idiot, got it!
Yaaa I suppose... was distracted by the 5month ride I was on and knew the USB was only temporary, till I got the rugged, yet it would have been nice to know...
Thanx, in the future I'll look to you guys.
Could someone direct to to the thread were I can find how to load my copy of CN on my new Asus x202e notebook without a DVD drive. Hope I don't need to buy a usb DVD drive.
More of a generic garmin question I suppose, but since its Montana related...
I moved recently and can't find my USB cable. I don't know anything about this sort of thing, but I do know that it had a little box on it. Not as simple as a generic USB. Is there something I need to know to source a new one without going online or should I order a genuine garmin cable?
I can't remember the last time I had a problem with a generic usb cable. All bets are off if it came from a dollar store, though.
So the black box is only needed in a cockpit
Anyone have a link to the best price going on a new Garmin-Montana 650T?
My guess is it's a choke to reduce RF interference. If you don't lay your cellphone down on top of it, you should be OK.....
Pulled the Montana off the bike yesterday, threw it in the van and went to get some spring water. Coming from a different area I intered goto and using waypoints..... I have no waypoints now? Nada zip.
CAn anyone from the collective tell me where they may have gone?
I haven't done any transfering or hooked it up to any pc's. Just sitting in two different Rugged mounts.
If you are an REI member you should have received a coupon code for 20% off any item.
Now you've done it.
And if past experience is anything to go by, those coupons explicitly *EXCLUDE* GPS devices. YMMV, but that's the way it's always been in the past with REI sales and special offers.
Yup, just checked REI.....
"Discounts not valid on hardshell boats, stand up paddleboards, any item with GPS technology, personal locator beacons, avalanche airbag packs, skis, ski boots or ski bindings; snowboards, snowboard boots or snowboard bindings."
Still they are a good place to buy stuff since they have a "No Questions Asked" and "No Time Limit" return policy.
And they should considering they charge full MSRP for everything.
My bad! Apologies all around.
I did get my 650T from REI on sale, but it was probably a sale that had the specific item advertised.
you might find someone in an REI store who would accept the coupon anyway. Might be worth a try if you are near a store.
A couple of questions regarding Montana... I wish there were good documentation... oh well...
On the 60Cx or 76Cx I can setup the SD card to save *all* track data by setting "Log Track to Data Card" in the track setup. Is there a way to keep all track data (not reduced copies) saved with the Montana?
One frustrating thing about the 60Csx and 76Csx is that they will not record the GPS elevation, only the barometric sensor altitude and I'm guessing the Montana is the same. I can view the GPS elevation (albeit very painfully) on the 60Csx and 76Csx while on the satellite page by selecting "GPS elevation" in the menu. Is there any way to display or log GPS elevation on this unit?
First post after a lot of lurking. Doing the Transamerica Trail starting 9-1-2013. Bought a Montana 650 with 100k TOPO maps on DVD to back up the Sam's charts. My question is after owning it a couple weeks I bought the US road maps on a mini sd card and loaded the TOPO on a 8 gig card. Now I wonder if I could have loaded both maps on one sd card and switched back and forth if I had gotten the road map on a DVD? Or can I do it now from Garmin's sd card? Thanks for your help in advance.
You will probably need to load your 100K topo map to the Montana's internal memory, and then use the City Nav microSD card in the unit, in order to have both maps available at one time.
If you had the CNNA maps on DVD, you could have them both on one microSD card.
