Using a 60C I have found that the recorded track distance differs from the planned route distance by some 5km on a route distance of 28km and this also differs by some 3 km from the odometer distance recorded. The example is Map Software distance planned 28km, Recorded track distance (after upload to the PC) 33.6km and GPS odometr distance 31.7km. Any ideas why this should be so and which is actually correct? I also have a problem identifying Waypoints - planning a route normally would result in sequentiallly numbered waypoints being used and printed on any map produced but if the route is downloaded to the GPS the waypoint numbers may differe from the map numbers and particularly so if there are several routes already in the GPS. The GPS numbers for the waypoints are the ones used when I 'Find' but I have no way of cross relating the numbers shown as a result of a 'Find' and those on any map I have printed out which makes a 'GO TO' a bit risky. Any ideas about how to get the numbers the same?

Yes. I have updated the unit software and the drivers but not the xImage. Will the updates affect my problems?
