Garmin hat einen großen Schwung Software-Updates (Beta-Versionen) für seine GPSmap 62, GPSmap 78, Oregon und Dakota Outdoor GPS-Handgeräte veröffentlicht. Neben diversen Fehlerbehebungen enthalten die Updates neue Geocaching-Funktionen (Multicache-Support) und zahlreiche funktionelle Erweiterungen.

Bei den Updates handelt es sich um Beta-Software; Fehler sind also nicht ausgeschlossen. Die Updates beinhalten auch vorherige Update-Versionen, die im Folgenden ebenfalls aufgeführt sind.

NEU – Übersicht: Alle Software-Updates für Garmin Outdoor-Geräte

Ausprobiert: Das neue Multicaching-Feature

Bei Multicaches gab es bislang ein großes Ärgernis. Beim Navigieren zu den Koordinaten eines Stages (hierzu wird üblicherweise ein beliebiger Wegpunkt mit den berrechneten Zielkoordinaten gefüttert), mußte der "Geocaching-Modus" (= aktive Navigation zu dem eigentlichen Geocache) verlassen werden. Dann war es nicht mehr möglich, die Cachebeschreibung oder einen Hint zu lesen bzw. den Cache als gefunden zu loggen. Ein ständiger Wechsel zwischen Geocache und Wegpunkt war die Folge.

Mit dem neuen Multicaching-Feature gehört dieses lästige Procedere der Vergangenheit an. Mit der Funktion Enter Next Stage werden einfach die Koordinaten der nächsten Station(en) eingegeben und dorthin navigiert. Wird die letzte Station erreicht und der Cache aufgespürt, dann kann der Cache sofort als gefunden markiert und ein Kommentar eingetragen werden. Very Cool!
