Garmin Colorado finally gets CHIRP!
« on: January 04, 2011, 20:09:39 »
Just noticed that Garmin released Colorado software version 3.52 Beta.
http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4667

"Changes made from version 3.50 to 3.52:

    * Added support for chirp™ detection. This software update will allow Colorado units to detect previously-programmed chirp™ units. See http://www.garmin.com/chirp for details on which units are chirp™ compatible. NOTE: Due to the hardware present in Colorado devices, chirp™ detection range may be less than that of other compatible devices."

I have yet to test it out, but I'm very happy to see this.

Well... At least part makes me a little happier that I decided to upgrade.

Of course this happens less than a month after I sold my Colorado...

Happy with the Oregon now that I don't have to deal with that "Rock'n'Roller" anymore.

Still...  DOH! >:(

Had a chance to try out the chirp with Pokaroo's "Long Shot" cache. No trouble detecting the beacon.

I can't program a chirp with this new update, but at least I can find one.

That's the kind of update that pushed us to give Garmin more money by getting an Oregon...  :'(

No, it's not ideal but it's more than I ever thought I'd get. If I bought an Oregon the next day they'd probably announce they're introducing the Idaho and discontinuing the Oregon ::)
