Thought I'd say Hi! to y'all

 

I've just joined the forum and thought I'd say hello to everyone.

While I'm not a GPS noob, I've just purchased a Garmin 775T, and am very impressed with it so far. There are some amazing features my 3 year old GPS didn't have. I love good tools, and great 'toys'!

Yes, I am a bit of a Garmin noobie I have to say, so I'll probably ask some questions to max my knowledge out. But, being a geek at heart, maybe I can share 2 discoveries about Garmin's you didn't know. Maybe. grin

Press the Sat scale for 6-7 seconds and the sattelite fixes will display for you. Second, press the battery meter for 6-7 seconds and you'll get a detailed screen of your GPS' system status. Be warned though, that when you exit, it will re-find the sat positions just like the first time out of the box.

Anyway, have a great night!

Juggernaut, you must be from down south. At least below the Mason Dixon Line. I use the term often and am from Kentucky originally.
