I don't have a Map76, but I've heard that Garmin tweaked the latest firmware on the eMap so that the warning text can no-longer be hacked.

On my Venture as it boots, instead of the "Hey Bozo, don't blame us" message.

My name, number, and email are displayed.

Can you still edit your unit's display post firmware update?

This would be a great feature on all GPSR's. Not that anyone would return it if found, but there are those few people that have a kind heart. I would like to see this added as an option so that Name, phone, address and e-mail can be placed inside for this reason alone. Good idea to pound on the makers for.

:) I have the 2.08 Firmware in my GPSMAP76 and I can still modify the Garmin Disclamer page using the "Updater" prog.  Got my name & address infor there.   Life is good.

Hey...good to see you back around again. Do you think this can also be done in the likes of the IIIPlus and the V? If so maybe you can e-mail me the "how to"?  :)

I'd be interested in the "Updater" program as well.

I've had that on my computer for months and haven't gotten around to using it yet, guess I'll give it a shot since my GPS is plugged in anyway (dowloading the 16 mile weekend backpacking trip I did)

Not to state the obvious or anything, but this software does not update the firmware that is currently being used by the GPSr.
Rather it edits the downloaded file in such a way that the text is swapped for text of your choosing.

After you are done with the edit, you use the update software that downloaded with the firmware data file.

In other words, you don't even need to own a GPS to change the text in the file that was designed for altering the loaded software.

There is absolutely no risk until you actually update the GPS unit, and even then I've never heard of one being damaged through this type of tweaking.  :rotflmao

Changes made from version 2.07 to 2.08:

Retain waypoint comments between power cycles.
Changed the anchor drag alarm to sound every time the boat moves outside the anchor area.
Changed the anchor drag alarm setting distance units from miles to feet.
Display approaching waypoint messages longer when based on distance.
Eliminated possible lockups when saving a track back through midnight or noon.
Improved WAAS performance after long periods of shading for both WAAS and GPS satellites.
Improved WAAS performance when GEO ephemeris is available but almanac has not yet been collected.

I'll tell ya what. The upcoming MAP76S looks to be a fantastic unit. I don't very often need anything more than the 8mb of memory in the MAP76, but you can never have too much memory, eh! uh-oh. :rotflmao
