NOTE : GPS Receivers with Version 2.01software installed have a problem when uploading and downloading routes, the route is cut off at 16 waypoints. We do not know what other versions may also have this problem.
The Version is displayed on the first screen you see when the GPS is turned on.
At the time of writing this document GPS software Versions 2.12 and 2.13 are available for download and installing into your GPS from these sites.
Version 2.13 is available from www.silva.se but you need the Global Map Planner software to install it.
Version 2.12 is available from www.brunton.com and comes with its own installer software.
It appears to be possible to use the installer software from Brunton to install the file available from Silva (we tried it and it worked ok).
OziExplorer Configuration Setting
To make Upload to the GPS more reliable and faster it is suggested that the GPS Receiver engine of the GPS be turned OFF before uploading to the GPS.
To turn the GPS engine off - Press the DOWN arrow (middle bottom button) until you are on the POSITION screen press the YES button (lower left), this will present a screen with TURN OFF GPS on it, press the YES button, the GPS receiver engine is now turned OFF.
When set to log track points in a TIME mode the GPS will log points even when it does not have a position fix. OziExplorer will "reject" these points during the download process. Therefore the number of points kept in the downloaded track may not be the same number that is downloaded.
The GPS does not allow a track to be uploaded.
Waypoints are stored in the GPS in specified locations (slots), if a waypoint is downloaded from say slot 25 then it will be uploaded back into slot 25 and so on.
If you want to add new waypoints into the GPS then you need to download the waypoints from the GPS first (or load a previously downloaded copy from a file) and then add the new waypoints into OziExplorer and then upload them to the GPS. If you simply add new waypoints to OziExplorer they will be added into slot 1, slot 2 .... and so on, when uploaded to the GPS they will overwrite the waypoints already in those slots.
