New guy checking in

 

Hi,

Just got our new Garmin C340 today and am trying to figure it out. It's our first GPS and got it so I coulg use the Trailer Life campground directory with it. Thing I didn't know was you can't just upload points and maps into the GPS from the directory (bummer). Just starting out and found this website. I hope this unit works for what I bought it for. I am in the house and it is still looking for satellites. I hope it is not "blind".

Thanks,

Phil

Welcome

You are going to love it here. Make sure your GPSR has a clear view of the sky or near a window that is not blocked so it can get zoom in on the satellites. It take about 15 to 30 minutes the first time you use your unit for it to get noticed.

Good luck.

You need to be outside for

You need to be outside for it to get good satellite reception. Also, it will take longer for it to acquire a satellite if you turn it off at a different location than when you turned it on.

I am new too

I just got a Nuvi 660. This is my first GPS. I just download Rest Area combined. I will test this file on my trip to Pittsburgh PA. Thank you

New to the site too

I'm new here too (well, been here for a week now) but just went straight into the discussions.

Anyway, I've had my Garmin c550 for a year and a half now and love it, in spite of its imperfections and the several times it led me to incorrect destinations/POIs. I'm hoping that through this website, I can get more out of GPS device. And I hope that I can contribute sometime in the future also.

I live in Dallas, btw.
