Zumo 396 favourites

Post by Sleuth »

I managed to upload my favourites from BaseCamp to the device.

However they now all have a pretty heart shape on the GPS map.

Is there any way to change the heart to the BaseCamp icons? Also I have a few that have a custom icon. Or even the title of the favourite would be nice.

Best regards

Afraid not, though you can edit the icon on your device but the options aren't great.

Garmin took a step backwards with the 396. My 665 can edit any Favorite on the device to any of the standard symbols, or the gpx file of Favorites that I send from either BC or MS can have custom symbols that appear on the map as such.

Thanks. I suspected as much, but hoped I was wrong.

I would have thought that certain basic things would be available. Such as:
  • Selecting favourite icons (as well as custom icons)
  • Sorting of music
  • Etc
Out of curiosity does the 595 have any of these things?

One thing I do like is the inclusion of a weather cap on the mount rather than something that can get lost. (A friend had the 660 and lost his, while I managed to keep mine.)

Sorry I was not clear. The weather cap / dust cap etc is attached to the mount on the 396. On the 660 / Nav IV it is separate, and therefore easy to lose.

In terms of weather proofing - it seemed to keep the contacts on my Nav IV dry, and the bike was an outside beast. Rarely did she come in to play.
