Obviously haven't RTFM properly.
On the off chance that garmin haven't printed that in the manual / software help, go to google and type your question in there. Stop being so damn lazy! Help yourself this once. [/quote]

A little unnecessary don't you think?  Sad

Couldn't agree more, this isn't singletrackworld! That made me so angry, this is a friendly forum and if somebody asks a question then either help or keep quiet, instead of posting useless unhelpful crap like that!

I found with the 750 that trying to run a route on it with directions doesn't work very well at all off road.  Following a course works much better as the GPS will bleep when you go more than 50m off the course - you just follow the squiggly line.

It is one of those things that you should try and see what works for you best - so it is a good idea that you are trying it before you go!

Perhaps, but how many times has Andy posted up a question which could be answered in less time than it takes to post the question simply by reading the documentation or by asking google. The fact that i deal with this type of thing at work means that it annoys me even more. He's perfectly capable of finding the answers himself but he doesn't which in my opinion is just lazy. So apologies if i made you angry but you've proved to yourself and everbody else that you didn't need our help to begin with.

I don't care. I already said I looked at that manual only hours after unwrapping it and missed that bit, mainly due to being a bit drunk. Your responce was entirely unwarranted and not in keeping with what Ade and us other MODS have managed to achieved here, i.e. somewhere you can ask a stupid question without being flamed. If you want to post utter shite like that then do it on Singletracworld!

My intention was never to flame and I welcome people asking questions but consider this:
How do I get firefox to work?
Vs.
I installed firefox but when I launch it from the start menu nothing happens. Can you help?

In my example the first question says I'm lazy and want other people to tell me how to do it. The second question says I've actually done something before posting my question and shows that I'm not expecting other people to do everything for me. An even better question would be, I've installed firefox but when I launch it from the start menu nothing happens. I've searched online for my problem and tried this solution (with a link) but it didn't work and i just can't figure it out, please help.

In fact, there's a bloke who's written a whole guide on how to ask questions. Aimed mostly at the IT world, the principle applies to asking any question. <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html">http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html</a><!-- m -->

Again, I wasn't trying to flame, merely just trying to encourage you to help yourself. Although in your defence it does seem silly not to include an owners manual with it and expect people to find it online.
