Excuse me mods if this is the wrong spot to post this and please move to the appropriate forum if it is not.
As I am sure many of you testing Windows 7 are owners of various makes and models of GPS receivers.
I myself own 2 self contained GPS units and 1 mobile phone with GPS. Yesterday I decided to load up my software for my GPS units so I can update my maps and POI's. Being a user of a Garmin Nuvi 205W for the bast 5 or 6 months I set my hand held unit aside and moreless forgot I had it.
My hand held unit is a Garmin Etrex Legend C and its about 2 or 3 years old. Today I got the wise idea to update the maps. Whn I pluged it in to the USB port I got the surprise of my life, the infamous Blue Screen of Death (scary music plaing in the background).
For what ever reason, that of wich I have no desire to investigate; my hand held unit tanked Windows 7. Ill stick with XP for updating the maps on this old dog.
I'm posting this becuase almost everything I have read about Windows 7 deals with only things related to the computer itself, nothing about the miscelanious gadgets (other then cell phones) we use on a daily basis that require the use of a solid operating system.
For the record my Nuvi and cell phone work wonderful on Windows 7.
