Hi All,

I've searched to no avail on how to create, save and upload a screen shot attachment

Can someone send me the link / thread if there's one. If not, how can I get help on this?

Hi All,

Is there a glossary of standard waypoint symbols ( so determined by MSM) anywhere on this website where members are supposed to follow? Symbols can be up to each individual's personal intepretation.

Is it correct to assume different GPSrs may have different symbols?

I can imagine the confusion when different members inteprete the same symbol differently & start uploading contributions with their own personal intepretations of what each symbol stand for ...etc.

Brian

Don't worry about the icons.

BernGPS will change them if need be to suit.

Bro, I think you have to explain clearly what map you are using. I deleted your GPSID (I presume).
You don't want everyone to see this. Only your mapper when you ask for unlock code.
I presume your handphone is your main source of GPS and you are running Garmin MXT.
Am I right? FYI, GMXT will not allow you to do Gold standard tracks (1 sec tracklogs needed for
making maps). You may have to use Sport trackker like another Tawau Tracker.
