  1. For those of you who use venerable Garmin GPSMap 296 or any of it's "brothers" this may be of interest to you. I was running 6.00 software on my 296 and read somewhere that Garmin had stopped supporting the unit and wrote them an email inquiring about it and got this reply: The last software release for the GPSMap 296 is 6.10 which was released one year ago, in May of 2013. I think the 6.00 was from 2006- 2011, can anyone confirm that? So if you have any of these units you can update the software by going to the Garmin site. You have to have the Garmin WebUpdater installed in order to do this but it only takes a few seconds. I don't think the same can be said for their MapSource program which is miles above BaseCamp in my not so humble oppinion... I have been petitioning Garmin to come up with a new 296 with a portrait screen (or switchable), the option of touch or buttons and a few extra features such as using up-datable VNC's as a data base instead of (or in addition to) Topo Canada V4 as well as more options for searching for waypoints (using airport identifiers or name) and a "new track" button. And more "room" in the notes and waypoint name bars. Have a good day, W.
