A short tip this time: Screen Captures on the Montana (and Dakota/Oregon/62/78 as well)

To capture screens exactly as they show up on your gps, go to Setup/Display and select "Screen Capture". Once this is enabled, if you go to the screen you want to capture and press the Power button once, quickly, then that screen will be captured and saved on the gps.

To get the files off the gps, connect the gps via USB cable to a computer and use Finder on the Mac or Explorer in Windows to navigate to the folder called \Garmin\scrn

Enabling Screen Capture only works until the next time you power down when it will become disabled again.

Here's a couple of examples:

If you want to discuss the Montana, go to the humungous thread called Laying Down Tracks/New Garmin Montana.

Please do not reply in this thread...
