    Oregon 450/450T

    There are two methods to develop satellite image map for Garmin 450 and 550.

    The first one is garmin's customer map. It is great. However, every image is limited in 1024X1024 which is tooooooo small. Another limitation is only less 100 images are accepted.

    The second method is buy garmin birdseye satellite map service. However, a lot of countries can not buy the service, for example, in China. And the speed is unbearable.

    Anyone know the format of garmin birdseye satellite map? Can anyone develop a tools for the map developing? There are so many free satellite map services all around the world.

    Hi,

    Is there a firmware 3.8 for the Oregon 450. Isn't the latest one 3.40?

    what is the cheapest garmin widescreen that can work with bluechart marine maps?

    I'm being a cheapo but I really like the larger widescreens of the garmin auto models - can anyway of them properly display bluechart marine maps? I read the nuv255w won't show depths for example which makes it useless. Any proper working ones?

    Hi
    I use an OREGON 450 for sailing, not the cheapest, but it works correctly with the bluechart. It is waterproof, I keep it in my pocket even when the weather is bad, or even when the sea is too rough for working on a paper map.
    My best friend when I sail alone.

    thanks; you do not find it too small? Also - can garmin software - like mapsource in conjunction with bluecharts actually route a course for you -or is that always done manually?

    Hi
    Small ? yes, but more convenient than an ipad to have it on his pocket !
    I don't use mapsource. I have a computer under linux with QlandkarteGT (not so common). But anyway, I prepare the route manually.
