OK, I just got the GPSmap 60CSx and absolutely love. It was really easy to learn how to use use. I already brought it with me on a few rides and it worked flawlessly. I went all out and also bough the City Navigator and Topo US software. They're both great too.

I just have one question (that I haven't figured out how to do), how can I take a track map or track profile image and save it as a .jpg file?

Thanks...

I don't think there is an export map function in Mapsource. I've never been able to do it.

There's always screen capture (print screen) then paste to a paint or image viewing program, I guess.

That's easy, but not done inside Garmin software. When you have the route or track up on your monitor, 'capture" the image with either Printkey or Snap and save as a .jpg file. I currently use MWSnap3, but had PrintKey before. Both work well. I wouldn't want a computer without one or other, invaluable utility.Here is an example of map I just drew route on. Go to the bottom of my thread here to see example...might be slow to load, lots of pics too ((-8.

I was really hoping to do it in the software, oh well. I'll try a couple of different ways and pick what works best for me. I guess it's all part of the learning experience...:D

Like I said, the GPS is great :thumbsup: and can't wait to take it out on more rides.

Thanks for the suggestions!!!
