Got to love secret features like that. I might have to check out that menu.

But I can tell you as a software developer that those things have inherent risks, since they are not generally known or documented there's always a chance they go away or get altered or broken without warning.

Well, I accidentally found a UTube video that shows how to make the Zumo recognizable by Mapsource. A secret menu!
By default my new Zumo connects to a PC in MTP instead of Mass Storage. You can change this in the secret menu. To access the secret menu tap the volume button. Once in the volume setting screen press on the upper right corner until the menu appears. There are a bunch of things on the secret menu but I have not fooled with them yet.


Anyway, now that I have put my Zumo in Mass Storage mode I can send routes to it with Mapsource :D

They are Duralast sold by AutoZone. They seem fine for light jobs done with quarter inch sockets.

Welcome aboard, hope to see you around at an event soon. Your location in the northeast is not close to many, giving you the chance to do more touring on the way. 

Also promising to see a younger person joining, we need more youth and energy.

Couple things to add

First I guess I'm glad I never got into Map Source and was then forced to change to BaseCamp, still just doing a little bit in BaseCamp, mostly bringing in the routes from events and getting them into my Zumo.

Second regarding connecting your Zumo to PC and having it recognized, not sure if it is something odd with my unit but sometimes it will go into powered mode, like I just plugged into a USB charger, then I need to disconnect and try again. (I have the same but opposite problem when trying to charge sometimes it thinks it is connected to a computer, my Garmin Nuvi2450 used to do this sometimes too.) Had this happen again yesterday when I connected to get my maps updated and load GPS routes for Mail Pouch.

PS  Bob sorry to hear had your GPS come off, then had to watch as it was crushed by a car. I lost a GoPro off my helmet a couple years ago and was very bummed, I replaced it and have been extra careful since then, but also made sure to include name/address info on the memory cards.

Good to hear, hope you're not jinxing it by talking about great weather so long before most of the attendees will show up.

Yeah, TWO free extensions. When I changed my tire this morning I found another short quarter inch extension inside.
now I have two.

Now that's incredible. Are they at least a good brand you can use without breaking your knuckles??
