Can you help with a question regarding using the 400t in

Customer Question

Can you help with a question regarding using the 400t in conjunction with the TOPO program?
I can download waypoints from the handheld to the computer, but can longer download tracks. This used to work great. Could it be a setting on the 400, or is it more likely a problem with TOPO?

Hi there,

Try using a different program, e.g. BaseCamp

It will mount your Oregon 400t under My Devices in BaseCamp and you can then drag the tracks to your computer.

I have now downloaded BaseCamp, but no joy yet. It has not been able to recognize my Garmin. Get message: "Comm port is busy..." Nothing else is plugged in, no new comm apps, did several restarts.
I will try to work on it again on Tues, busy tomorrow. Thanks for the new lead. Can we keep this thread open for a bit?

Yes, we can keep this thread open until you get it sorted.

Let me know how it goes later this week.
