We had a discussion awhile ago about auotorouting and garmin. Garmin had disconitinued autorouting in many of there programs, they replaced it with N route which downloads to the laptop and then you connect your gpsr to the laptop. THis is a really neat program and I like it alot. It gives you voice turn by turn. I have had trouble with the reception while it was connected. I frequently loose reception. I was caching with Mainiac1957 the other day and tried using his the same way and we run into the same problem.
I checked all of the obvious stuff. I also checked gc.coms forumns and there wasnt much there on the topic. One other guy had the same problem. Any thoughts would be great.
I use a Garmin GPS60CSx and have never had a problem with Nroute. I traveled all the way to the midwest with it.
I guess it's 60 csx's for us
YES!!! You don't know caching until you've cached with a Garmin 60csx!

(Anyone want to buy a Garmin 60c? EXCELLENT condition!)
I was out for the last three days with Team2Hunt, KachingKaren, and TAT. I had my laptop connected to my older Vista C running nroute and other than a very occasional satellite lost, I never had any issue.
If it's possible, it would be interesting to run nroute on a different laptop with the GPSr and see if it's giving the same issues.
Personally, I suspect there's something up with the USB port since more than one GPSr gave you issues. Finding someone with a laptop and a GPSr that you could swap for a little while will narrow down the problem quickly. Depending on how soon you want to do this, I'd volunteer for a caching session but my time is limited in the next couple of weeks.
We missed you too Jake! And yes, the old Garmin catches up eventually. And so does the operator! LOL This past year has been such a great time. Thanks all for the memories!
