Want to know how to put way point in my etres gamain gps


Adding a Waypoint is not to difficult. You would first of all choose Where To? on the main menu, and then input your main destination. Once the GPS unit has finished calculating your route and ask you to follow the given route, you would then go back to the Main Menu screen and choose Where To? again. You would then input the Waypoint using Favorites, or whichever method you prefer to use. Once the GPS has accepted the destination, and it displays the screen with the large GO button, you would press GO. The next screen should ask you if you want to add this location a a New Destination, or to Add as a Via Point. You would then choose Via Point.

Please assist me on how to set alarms to my Gps when i get close the destination i am heading to.


Hello,

to create a proximity alarm for one of your waypoints is a very simple process. First you will want to create a waypoint for you destination. Be sure to name the waypoint something that will remind you of the destination. After this is done go to your main menu by pressing the "menu" button 2 times. Navigate to the "proximity" icon select it by pressing "enter" it will now allow you to create a proximity alarm select the open space and press "enter" it will now give you a list of items you can use select "waypoint" using "enter" and pick the waypoint you created earlier. now all you will have do is select a radius for thee alarm. You can also use the other items to create your proximity alarm such as cites addresses and any other navigation category.

Hope this helps!

Unfortunately the Raymarine A60 does not have the automatic route feature built into the unit. You would have to create a route if you were planning a long trip. A route is a collection of waypoints that are linked together. Each time you reach a waypoint the A60 will notify you of the arrival and move on to the next waypoint.

How do I transfer routes to my Garmin nuvi 250


The Garmin Nuvi 250 does not support loaded routes. You'll have to load the waypoints, and then just go from one to the next, to the next. You can transfer the waypoints to the GPS unit with a USB cord.

How to reroute my desination i am looking for


From browsing the manual (page 20) for your Garmin nüvi 350, it looks like you will be able to do this by creating the route in MapSource, saving it as a GPX file, and then loading it to your nuvi on an SD flash memory card.

The Nuvi 350 doesn't support custom routes. You can create waypoints (or custom POIs) for each location and manually pick waypoints as you travel, but there is no way link all the points together into a route. While you can upload a GPX file to it, it won't contain the route, just waypoints. When you pick a waypoint and tell the 350 to take you there, it's going to calculate the route based on the settings (ie, vehicle type, shortest distance, etc). It won't follow a predetermined route.

Entering map references manually


To enter a waypoint, either use Mapsource software and transfer to the unit, or else create a waypoint and then edit it to the proper co-ordinates.

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

The contours are not coming from the routes and waypoints, they are coming from the mapping software. You must load all the map segments at once to your unit. You can upload routes and waypoints separately and they will not erase the other ones already on the GPSr unit.

Waypoints and nav log


Based on your description I would suspect that the internal memory battery is depleted and needs to be replaced. This battery is required to retain waypoint and route information when the input power is low or turned off. The battery is soldered onto the main circuit board and needs to be replaced by a technician having good soldering skills and access to instructions for the disassembly and reassembly of the unit. There is a list of dealers on the Northstar website. Review the list and make a couple of phone calls to see which ones will do bench work on this unit.

I believe they fixed this problem with a firmware upgrade. Use Garmin's web updater to perform the updates.
