Files disappered from Oregon 550 ??
« on: February 24, 2011, 17:38:21 »
I'm a member of Garmin wiki and received this scary email from another member today. Posted as a FYI _ Inky

After transferring geodata, (waypoints and routes) from Oregon 550T to Google Earth, I lost several files!(Map Update, Setup log etc).

When I connect the 550T to my laptop, (usb), there pops up an error message window with following contents:

PROBLEM WITH COMMUNICATING WITH GARMIN (M:)
AN ERROR OCCURD WHILE READING THE FOLLOWING FILES; M:/Garmin/GPX/userdata.gpx

I reinstalled BaseCamp but that does not help.
The Garmin Europe helpdesk could not help me yet...
They needed a copy of the files I just have lost...
Does anybody know how I can solve this problem.

Kind regards, Cornick d'Abo

Fellow with the problem got some help - Good to remember.  Inky

Dear Wikispace members,
I have got some help from Scott.
He helped me out by sending me a copy of his userdata.gps.
I changed my old file: userdata.gpx, into: userdata.xxx and replaced that for Scott's userdat.gpx file.
Restart BaseCamp and connecting the Oregon 550T and there are no error windows anymore.
I'm very thankfull for all your reactions and given advices.
Kind regards, Cornick d'Abo from Holland
