Question about Garmin GPS 76 GPS Receiver

Topo maps a mess of meaningless lines

Hi. I just purchased a GPS 76csx, and loaded a Canadian topo map on it. But I can't read the map- it's just a mess of meaningless black lines running every which way with no apparent significance. The map looks fine on my desktop screen, but is useless on the Garmin. I'm really counting on this GPS on our upcoming canoe trip, can you help, please? thanks

Sorry for late reply. You need to select an area on your topo map prior to downloading it. For example, if you plan to go to Algonquin Bice Lake (access point 4), then you need to select the map around the area (starting from) Kearney upto the Magnetawan Lake and beyond. Mark waypoints from the put-in to the campsite on Bice Lake (best to compare of the topo and Algonquin canoeing map). Then you can click Transfer, click Send to Device (GPS 76cs should appear) to download it. On the GPS, enter the Find Waypoint button and you should be able to see those waypoints. Good luck for your next trip.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.
