FEATURE REQUEST:
two click Waypoint creation feature. (also for all other eXx10)

First click (HW button or Joystick) display a new waypoint creation screen, with the current position defaulted.

Now the user can change the coordinates to his specific target WP eg. next stage of a multi cache...(edit symbol, add comment)

Second click save.
(with the optional possibility to set a goto as next step)

Instead of having a next step of Goto, have two options on waypoint entry screen: 1) Save 2) Save and Go. Although, not sure how well the screen real estate would allow for that on the 310.

The basic theme that I see in the wish lists are bringing back some of the features that made the original X00 series great in my opinion. These include, for me anyway:
-the waypoint creation as mentioned by sockeye above,
-the file stucture for saving all data to the sd card into folders,
-projection from any point
-and maybe a rechargable lithium ion battery pack(although I am happy with my eneloops).

These are features that I loved on my X600 and wish I had them on my T2000 and X610. I think the X10s are already the best on the market but that would widen the gap considerably.

Hi David,

here it is, sorted by priority:

1. Joystick movement -> remove acceleration
2. enchance speed of map display.
3. Translation to German. Use settings of the other eX. It is quite ok there
4. Get rid of the rediculous large Arrow it covers allmost 10% of small screen
5. Deliver smaller regionalized Basemap to allow larger detail maps to be installed. (or i will do it :-))

FEATURE REQUEST:
two click Waypoint creation feature. (also for all other eXx10)

First click (HW button or Joystick) display a new waypoint creation screen, with the current position defaulted.

Now the user can change the coordinates to his specific target WP eg. next stage of a multi cache...(edit symbol, add comment)

Second click save.

Sockeye,

Right now would be a great time to send my any info you have on the 310 including a bug list and/or upgrates that need to be made, because Magellan is taking a close look at the firmware on this unit.

David

Hello Magellan,

please, please fix the joystik movement on the eXplorist 310. This automatic accelaration of the movement makes panning on the map UNUSABLE!

I can live with the other bugs and translation errors, but the joystick is a real pain in the a..
