I've been using/testing several versions of various GIS software and run into occasional issues. Right now, my biggest with QGIS is with GPS connection/downloading from/tracking. These are all critical issues for me.
1.) I think I did finally figure out the need to set data transfer to NMEA in/out on my Garmin GPSMap60CSX. QGIS repeatedly crashed on clicking connect, I hope this was my only error and is now corrected.
2.) Downloading from/uploading to GPS unit... clicked to download tracks and waited 10 minutes before giving up and canceling with no success. Any tips/pointers?
3.) I've posted in the old forum about this one... I am unable to see any layers of the open project when live tracking. Last time (I think using Copiapo) I was eventually able to zoom until the .shp file was visible (basically stumbled onto that one), but not the .sid file that formed the base map. Now, using Wroclaw there is nothing at all visible except the gps track. Just creating a track doesn't help, I need to be able to see my location in relation to various physical features and property boundaries in real-time.
