I'm taking a trip to Chicago tomorrow so will give it a good test. So far the only thing strang that I noticed is that it kept turnning itself off this afternoon when I had it connected to the PC and Mapsource using the GPS tracking function. I don't know what that was all about. Also, they didn't fix the lock to road problem where it stays in that mode when in off road mode. I don't know that it affects the off road heading/bearing function but I know it does some funky things when I page back to the map mode. Oh yes, also had it lock up once. I don't think this beta was fully tested out! I think they just want us V owners to get P.O.ed enough to buy a Street Pilot, which I'm close to doing.

Lived it. Loved it.
I have been using it since it was published a week or so ago. 15 caches found with it. I also traveled to Illinois and back. It didn't route me through Michigan. Image I even used the new offset feature (in feet) on a cache in Illinois. Ultimate cache was a no-find but not GPSV's fault.
They added a new game where you make your moves in the game by walking around. I gotta find an empty field to play it.
I have not been experiencing the problems Steve has been reporting.

Next question. Did either one of you first install the beta version (I think it was 2.12???) then install 2.20?

I load every revision almost on the day it comes out. I watch the bulletin boards for notifications.

Specifically, I upped from 2.12 to 2.20, which seemed to be a bookkeeping upgrade becase 2.12 worked ok and 2.20 didn't add any noticable features.

There are a few complaints on the bulletin boards, but not in the numbers you'd expect.

I'm happy to report that routing wise, it performed well today. I didn't have it do anything wierd like shutting off for no reason or anything. It still likes me to get off on hwy 100 as a long cut from I94 east to I894 south however. (grins) can't believe I did that...

I did have the beta installed. I don't recall any problems with that. Like Jeff, I load any beta as soon as I find one available. I think the previous one had a lock up problem. It would have happened today if it wasn't fixed. I had Chicago loaded and that was where it would lock, during the transition from basic detail to loaded detail. Come to think of it, two weeks ago I went to Indianapolis with the the beta loaded. No problems then either. Too bad business got in the way of geocaching. Image

Just reloaded garmin V back to 2.08. Installed routable maps from city select and downloaded new waypoints. So, that's all set. When I use mapsource to route from point A to Point B, it routes from my door step to the final destination. But when I route using only the gps it routes from the nearest main road (about .25 miles away) to the final point. Is this common?

Just found solution! WHen maps are installed into GPS from Mapsource there is a checkbox on the menu - include routing data on maps! Duh, that box was not checked. It now is checked. Phew!

Loading all of Chicago swamps the V. So I stop just around O'Hare. If I route across the boundary, the V since day one has a cow.
