My Garmin RV 760 has a screen capture function. Is anybody using this function and if you are for what purpose?
My husband enjoys taking screen shots of how high and fast we are going.
I use the screen cap feature of my RV 760 to record information about areas I'm passing through that look interesting. I later use this information to plan future trips.
It's also useful for showing error messages or specific screens when you are having issues with the GPS. You can then copy the file located in the Screenshot folder and copy it to a picture hosting site such as Photobucket. Then copy the URL into a post so others can see what your issues are and hopefully provide a solution.
The images are saved as .png files and are located in the "Screenshot" folder.
The two above uses are great ideas. Never thought of them.
Well, just don't tell anyone you were in a plane, and you weren't the one actually driving. And, you probably will have to do it while on the runway, before really getting up in the air, because who would believe you were going 547 MPH?
Maybe when POI Factory lets graphics be posted, it will make a great aid to making FAQs. Then you can depict the actual screen where an action takes place.
Screen shots have been used quite often in some other forums that allow imbedded images in the posts. They are helpful for demonstrating specific examples or problems related to the GPS devices. GPSReview and gpapassion are a couple of forums where you will find imbedded screen shots in some of the posts.
I used it on a Jet Blue flight to Tampa. I asked the pilot before hand if this was allowed. He said yes but did not think it would work.
When I was getting off I showed him the top speed we flew and the top altitude.
He said it was dead on in both cases. He was amazed it worked.
I figured the next time I was stopped and the police asked how fast I was going. I would show him. (aa little over 600 mph)
Thanks for this answer....I will definitely use this in the future!

I have a few friends in law enforcement - this could be a pretty funny thing if you ever did get stopped.
For those readers who are wondering just what a screen capture (also known as a screen shot), look at
