Garmin just released a software chipset update (Ver 2.90) for the GPSr units listed in the title. The new software improves ephermis collection, and improves SiRF chipset performance. You can run your web updater or goto Garmin.Com to download. You can also read about the update on the Groundspeak Forum here.
Please take a moment to read about the upcoming elections to fill the positions on the NoVAGO Board. Nominations are being accepted for the positions of: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Public Relations.
Guidelines for nomination and the voting process can be found on the Forums – goto NoVAGO News and Announcements, then select NoVAGO Elections.
While you are there, please take some time to review, and comment regarding the proposed NoVAGO Bylaws. The Bylaws and Election do not mean that NoVAGO is going to become a rigid, formal organization…it only means that some outstanding individuals are stepping up to the plate to help steer the organization as we evolve and grow.
Looks like there are some nifty changes on the GC.Com Home Page. Look at the left side menu items. “Groundspeak Trackables” now does a much better job of explaining how to manage “Trackables” (Travel Bugs & Geocoins). Here is a quick link!
Now that the NoVAGO site is getting some good traffic, feel free to link to the site on your cache pages, web sites, etc. You can get the banners here.
