[aprssig] Nuvi GPS blast

Hey Guys,

My wife gave me a Nuvi 205 last Christmas. It has gotten a LOT of use over
the last year.

Does anyone know if/how to get way points out of it so I can interface to a
2m xcvr?

On the topic of Garmin and "technical support". I had a question about a
setup screen. I somehow got into a set up screen, ended up deleting all my
data, and this did not make me happy.

I emailed Garmin and asked how to get into that screen again. The "support
engineer" (yea, right!) REFUSED to tell me, kept with the "they use that in
the engineering department and you have no need to be there". I finally
figured out what I had done and know now what not to press to delete/restore
to default. But I LOST A TON OF RESPECT FOR GARMIN over that issue.

  Charlie I use a prgm called EasyGPS to manage the waypoints. I think the
350 only stores 500 or so.... and the first band opening will fill it
up. The prgm works well.. I just save the 25 or so I want to keep then
erase all the waypoints with EasyGPS and reaload my fav's.
