76 is meant for tracking...which mean the backlight only need to be on when u read the gps.....which is abt 10-15% of the time

Like myself when I'm using my GPS inside my car, I use cigarette lighter charger for my Mobile 10x to power my 76csx. So I don't face power problem even I switch on the backlight all night long... :mrgreen:

Then I can save my battery power for outdoor use only... \:D/

Really aaa... But was useful also to keep the backlight on. I always keep my backlight on just to get some data from it. :mrgreen:

:-k :-k :-k
I presume the 76 would be somewhere near your chest on the underside of your body which is horizontal when you are gliding. Image

I would expect some signal interuption which will affect the tracklog interval.

I had mine set at :

1) wrapped when full
2) record method : time
3) 1 sec interval

....off I went tracking/flying, came home only to find my tracks were at random intervals instead of the 1 sec I set earlier. The tracklogs are using intervals ranging from 1 sec to 15 sec, with no fixed pattern. That really bothered me, for I would expect the interval to be fixed at 1 sec intervals. Did I do anything wrong here? I believe 60c's and Colorado users would be equally familiar with the 76 functions, you guys seen anything like this before?

Re: 76csx firmware update bring to accuracy 2m

#107 Post by Ababil » Thu Aug 14, 2008 9:38 pm

I already tried accuracy of etrex vista, nuvi200w and 60csx. From the same mapsource, same time, same place, On the land and sea. Most accurate is Nuvi 200w.Almost at the right point. Less then 1 meter. Etrex average 9 meter away and so do 60 cxs. Average taken from 10 X reading.For treasure hunting I think 200w is most suitable. Espeacially for open sea fishing kaki but to make nuvi 200w waterproof is the problem. I just laminate evrything including power cabel and make another open extention cable to power source (boat battery) heheheh
