Hi all
Is it possible for any one to send me a ride so I can up load it onto the Montana?

Something from Manchester area , just 3-4 hours long.
I've got the base camp on the computer but can't seem to figure out if there are any gates or styles blocking the way on my routes.so I would like to use it on a ride that has already been done so I can get used to it.
Cheers.

Hi lads
I've just downloaded the TET onto the Montana and want to pick the trail up at just passed skipton!will the device pick the trail up when I get to where I want to be then just carry on up the trail?or will it try and send me to the beginning of section two,which I think is Crewe?
Thanks

When you get to where you want to start then select the track and hit go.

I've posted my question in its own thread here but since seeing some of the questions and comments here, I'm asking here as well. I've got a Montana and I bout the discovery map card from "that guy on eBay in Germany". 1- the resolution of the map is utter crap, looks like a low resolution photo that my Montana is displaying (lots of detail but super low res) and 2- I loaded the UK TET and I can't seem to get it to actually load when I select it via "track manager".

What have I done wrong? And...is there a better mapping set option that I can buy / download?

Thanks

You need to go into the track manager and select the tet track. It should then turn into the map screen where you can then hit go.

I also have the German garmin sd. It works ok but I suspect it’s not genuine but it works.
Not sure on the resolution but it appears as a gmap file so it’s not like the open source maps from friezeitlarte which are img files.



Post some screen shots if possible.

Where have you saved the track. Sd card or internal memory.

You don’t really want to save anything onto you map sd card. Corrupt that and you’re back to square 1

Silly question but have you downloaded the tet gpx route or the tet map?
