Just like new: Update your Garmin software today


OregongeocachingAfter doing the free software update, Oregon users will see multiple Bluechart improvements, including changes to the tide charts and fishing contours. There are also updates that make editing locations quicker and easier. And based on user request, we’ve added NAD83 and GDA94 datums. Colorado users now have the ability to add comments in their Geocaching.com field notes, and Colorado and Oregon users alike will notice that any jumbled text that might show up in cache descriptions has been fixed.

There are more common features shared in the Oregon and Colorado updates. Users can now add points to a route by finding them on the map, and they have the option of turning off elevation shading. And falling under the category of making a great thing even better, improvements have been made to the GPS accuracy as well as the accuracy of the altimeter. And these improvements can help you better track the barometric pressure over a few days so you can tell if high- or low-pressure fronts are coming in.

So regardless of whether you purchased your device this week or have been a Garmin user for years, update your device today and take advantage of the improvements made by our tireless teams.
