Re: Topo Australia V2

G'Day urch I'm sorry to say but it's all bad news. You can't turn them off with Topo Australia. The contours lines are not a separate layer. The only thing you could do is use OSM maps (free) or City Nav ($$$) or Shonky (Free) or some other map set and use my Contours Australia 5m maps (free or $6 t...

Re: Can't unlock maps

Suouldn't you also have an unlock utility to match your device serial No with the maps? No. With a preloaded card the maps are locked to the card. Meaning the card serial No. has been coded into the maps. You should be able to take that card and put it into any Garmin GPS and it should work. If you...

QLD redlight and speed cameras

Anyone know where I can get FREE update files from. I want to load them onto the TwoNav GPS I have. I'll use down in Brisbane over the new year. I don't care if they are in another GPS format as long as GPSBabel can convert it.

Re: Windows 7

G'Day ruzzelz You wouldn't be getting the "There is a problem with product 8500. Pleae reinstall" error. I get a email about this problem about once every 2 years. The fix is easy. First off try and install them as Admin. To do that just right click on the .exe and run as Admin. See if that works. B...

Re: Windows 7

Just spent this morning installing Win 7 on my EEE PC 1000h. It went really well as you can see as I'm using it at the moment. I put the install disk onto a 4GB USB drive. The install was just a couple of clicks and it did the rest. It found all my hardware on problems. Drivers are not a problem. If...

Re: Broken Cover Screen GPS Map 60CSx

It can be repaired. They are only stuck on with double sided tape. I can't tell you the cost so you will have to give Garmin Australia a call.

Re: GARMIN DAKOTA 20

All I want to do now is load a nice 5 m contour map that I have downloaded., because the stock map does not appear to have much on it apart from some roads. The contour maps you have download are just detail contour maps and no other data. No roads, no POI, just contour lines. To load them on to yo...

Re: IN NEED OF HELP GARMIN GPSMAP60CS

Currently, to delete a number of waypoints you've got to select each one individually on the unit, and delete them one at a time. Is there a way to select a number of (old, obsolete) waypoints and delete them en mass? What I do is this. First I load all my waypoints from my 60CSx to Mapsource. Them...

Re: Contours Australia 5m

Thanks Spindoc. Quite a few people have downloaded the Mac version. There is more Mac uses out there then I thought there was. As no one had said anything, I just took it no one was having any problems. It's good to get at least one report back saying what I thought.

Re: outlook express at macca's

If your email provider supports authentication over SSH (sometimes called Secure Authentication ro something similar) then you will be ok, just ask your local ISP support people for what settings you need. Me personally there is no way I would not use a secure connection to send or get email from m...

I just downloaded 3MB of the file and no problems. I did SSh into the sever and run the checksum on the file after I uploaded it. It was a match. All should be fine from what I can see :-k
