Posted by dkhughes on Nov. 22 2003,9:31 amNew here. I've had this GPS approximately two weeks. I was having fits with navigating using cities from where I live (Colorado City, CO) and where I work (Pueblo, CO). I would be at work and the GPS would show Colo City 2.46mi to the north. (Colorado City, CO is located 25mi South of Pueblo) I cleared memory and initialized 3 or 4 times. Finally, after talking with support personal @ Magelan it was explained to me that the Base Map showed Colo City N of Pueblo, she used her software with the log. lat. numbers at my position to confirm this. Megelan support E-Mailed me back informing me that they would send the coordinates I gave them to their engineers. Has anyone else ever heard of this type problem before. dkhughes
