Re: Garmin Oregon 650

Yes, they're Panasonic. These are the ones I purchased and they seem fine. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/High-End-Batteries-Panasonic-Eneloop-Pro-Rechargeable-Batteries-AA-2450-mAh-x-8-/150837760184?pt=AU_Electronics_Batteries_Chargers&hash=item231ea190b8 In the ad they seem to mention Sanyo a few tim...

Are these the Panasonic ones rather than the Sanyo ones? Do you have a good source for genuine batteries?

Thanks

Re: Garmin Oregon 650

Tip of the Day from Ray at DCRainmaker : How to display your name and phone number when your GPS starts up. This post is about the Garmin Edge 810 but it works just the same with my Garmin Oregon 600 so I am guessing the 650 and probably other models as well. http://www.dcrainmaker.com/images/2013/0...

Re: Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

It's a shame that the great relationship you had with these guys has deteriorated to far. Yep. I have brought three GPS units from them and a GoPro camera .. never again. The last missive included the following statements: In relation to reading your list of errors, in fact your statement could not...

Re: Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

I got an update email from Highly Tuned Athletes .. A couple of points worth noting ... First it was address to "Dear Customer..." which given I have dealth personally with Rob Grinter on a number of times and spoken to him personally on the phone numerous times etc, was pretty immature. Fault found...

Re: Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

I'd be returning it under the consumer law of it fundamentally not proforming the function for which your bought it It is with Highly Tuned Athletes now and they are basically blaming me/ OpenStreetMap for the issues. They have tested it apparently on a 16 km ride or drive and it worked fine, well ...

Re: Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

Not that it helps much but I think whatever is causing point 7 is the root cause of points 2 to 6 as I've found that a lot of hand held GPS units from most manufacturers do not have enough software error routines to know that the unit has begun recieving false data from a rogue signal or that that ...

Re: Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

According to Highly Tuned Athletes owner Mr Rob Grinter all the problems I had with my Garmin Oregon 600 recently occurred because I was using OpenStreetMapping ... The maps caused the following problems which I raised with Garmin International (ignored) and Highly Tuned Athletes. Apparently my use ...

Re: Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

Go into setup and then, near the bottom of that menu (scroll the icons) until you find "Profiles". Go into that and select "Geocaching" then "Use". That should fix it all. If not, what do you see when you reselect the Geocaching profile? Also, what reset method did you use? Thanks for the suggestio...

Garmin Oregon 600 Geocaching Profile Turned Blue (Marine)

Hi I have today updated the firmware in my Garmin Oregon 600 to 2.8 and with that I now have a corrupted Geocaching profile as per the attached images. I can thankfully change to other profiles and can access setup that way and get some functionality but obviously this is not ideal. I cannot seem to...

Re: Caching Swap - Where have they gone?

I still like to swags and look to at least add to a cache even if I do not take. Plenty of opportunities to get reasonable swag at resoanable prices, e.g., 4 GB USB Flash Drives for $1.99 each. Okay they are Disney branded but still :)
