    Hey Mark. I had one of those 720's, but I don't now because I got tired of it freezing all the time when I was zooming around the maps.

    I got an error message that looked like a windows error box, so it looks like you use some kind of windows embedded based OS, and maybe an old version. That needs to go. Windows is too resource intensive. I've had many older windows computer systems freeze up because they couldn't handle the speed at which I do things.

    Just my opinion, here.

    Depending on what Zoom level you are at, you may have had to wait till it prior processes.

    Also if you got the Low Memory message,, it is suggested that you reboot the TND every 3-4 days.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Just a heads up. I will be on vacation the week of 12th-18th of May. I will be in the mist of studying the tidal waves and playing with the baby in her first trek of seeing sand.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    A - Tidal waves can cause "mist." So I guess that technically that could be spelled correctly. :biggrin_25525:

    B - Enjoy your well-deserved time off dude.

    A laptop makes a lousy beach ball Mark, so leave it at home.

    If it's like the 720, when you power it up it will ask you to accept and continue previous route or accept only. If you get this, hit accept and continue previous route.

    Yep. Also, make sure the software is up to date by hooking it up to the dock. Other then you'll have to wait till the 18th when the thread owner reappears from whatever beach he's habitation on at the moment. Man does that sound nice or what:D
