Etrex20 or GPSMAP 62s - Overland Travel - Multiple Maps
i'm looking for a unit to supplement the use of NRoute and Mapsource on a Laptop for a long trip round the world. We will be off for two years so need lots of maps which i can put on the units from the laptop or have pre-writte SD cards to put in the units.
Cost is a factor so which one should i go for ? Are there any features i'm missing as they both seem to do similar things.
We will be using track logs and Maps4Africa and all sort of stuff like OSM and Velo maps to supplement. Are these two the cheapest ones that are suitable. I've even looked at the Nuvi. I currently have a GPS4 !
you either need a RS232 cable interface from Etrex to your PC, or use a USB to RS232 converter then the small adapter to fit into the Etrex connector.
Protool used for old Etrex is serial protocol, so USB will not fit (except through USB to RS232 adapter).
Can anyone with any of these devices send me the GarminDevice.xml file found in the units Garmin directory? Please send an email with your device type and the Garmin Device.xml to babj615 (at) gmail.com
On my Etrex 20, I cannot put back to zero, the total altitude, when I reset the odometer, I don't know how to make, I have reload the version of the firmaware 2.60, because I was with the Silly firmawre 2.61, it is similar !
