Anyone familiar with a Colorado 400? I have a lot of tracks saved in the "tracks section" and I cant get to show any of them on the map unless I click on it to "Go to". It would be nice to show em at all times to really know where you going.
What am I doing wrong?

Obviously you don't have them turned on.

This is all from memory, which ain't as good as it used to be. I had an Oregon and a Colorado here one week and I installed my map on them. IIRC, the switch is on the page where you turn tracking on and off. It may be on the tracking setup page, or possibly the data handling setup page. You cannot turn it on from the Tracks page.

Does the 76 have any 3d or imagry at all ?

i love when i have google earth on and have my gps hooked up to it so sweet you can see everything and even read about near by stuff.

Its just that i hate bumping the LAP TOP SO MUCH .

Nope, the 76 is just a plain vanilla GPS... no 3D or imagery.

What you just said, You really don't need all the fancy stuff like 3D imagery. If you learn how to read a Topo Map and understand the contour lines then that is good enough. Besides I have found that the more whistle's the gadget has the less enjoyable the experience is. After all, aren't we just trying to keep from getting lost.

Since DD wants 3D, I'll bet he's a Track Up kind of person. Laughing Personally, I don't usually have time to look at all the bells and whistles.

"Since DD wants 3D, I'll bet he's a Track Up kind of person. Personally, I don't usually have time to look at all the bells and whistles." quote Dan

Mr Dan . i think you got me wrong because im nose to the grindstone. Seems like you are poking fun at me .Thats cool .But in my defense .........
I never even heard of a outdoor gps untill i got on atv forums haha.
I love my plain old topo maps but come on they are bulky.
For me the 3d stuff adds to the overall expierence especially google earth in the evening , I love pouring over every the imagry in the planning trips and i really like going into caves and such .And i know you Mr Dan love to map map map like we used to do spelunking.
I never got into to it .

Most of my life has been spent rock climbing .

This is me, do i look like a "bells and whistles "kind of guy
Take a peak .

http://www.seclimbers.org/modules.php?name=News&file=print&sid=113
SO read my interview and surely you can see ive been about .
crikey I was rock and canyoneering guide in australia.
I really dont need a map, or a GPS i can always walk out of anywhere but crap yeah when you got 45 different atv trails all in 5 square miles heck yeah its confusing as heck.

Yall dont think i can read contur lines ? geeeseuss cut me a little slack((((( Im a Newbie at riding, Only got about 10k in my first year of atving ,,, but i aint no newbie at being HARDCORE.))))))

Anyhow you look at it they are all pretty expensive.
I hear good things about the big quater sized wheel at the top of certain ones .
seems cool to me , but i screwed up bad with the p earth mate , maybe if i had a high speed connection could have worked it .
A few times it did work in CO on my maps i had loaded and it was pretty cool .
We did 100 mile loops everyday and once it did show me something that barely helped .
i had cell service up high so the crack berry reall reall hekped along with the plain paper topos and guide books.

Hey DD, I was ribbing you a bit. Laughing

I never did any rock climbing. When I was a lot younger, I did quite a bit of tree climbing. My bones is now too old for anything like that now.

I also like Google Earth. I use it as my main viewer. I've thought about one of those Pocket PCs for recording and displaying GPS data. If one could cache the GE data for an area onto the PC, you wouldn't need an external feed to have an awesome map on the backside of a mountain.

I agree with you Ron. Once you learn to read the lines its no different than a Topo map that big. I try to learn alot of the trails in my head. I carry mine in my backpack. I use it if I need it. Its good if you havn't been to a place very much. I like having mine for security. Sometimes half the fun is wondering whats around the next corner.

What is the preferred unit to use around here? I know you guys have one that you like. I am thinking of getting one pretty soon and I will want to play with the maps you guys have.

Which one is the "one"???

I like the 60 or the 76 series as long as they are the csx models.
