I doubt they will let me have a go with one, after I spelled UWATEC incorrectly in my new book! Doh.
Well, I for one didn't spot that.........

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

Regarding maps. I am not aware of an on-line chart library. It looks like you basically up-load a jpeg version through SmartTRAK.
I picked up a Galileo Sol this past week and am presently playing with the new software. Pretty similar to the the version I used with my Smart computer. Can hardly wait to upload charts.

Finally had a few minutes to play with creating maps. To be legible, here is what I have found:
1.) Lines need to be 2 points or thicker to appear on the computer. Hairline widths do not work.
2.) Font size needs to be about 24 point to be legible when it is compressed and transferred to the Galileo.
3.) If anyone is interested, I have a template for drawing maps/info that matches the size of the Galileo "screen." You create maps/headings/directions inside the rectangle.
This is definitely not a high definition charting function, but I have found it useful for general headings and locations. My "science project" has been the grid for a local underwater park in Edmonds, Washington.
Switching topics, how do other Galileo owners transport their units? The case it came in is fairly bulky, and I am looking for something smaller for overseas trips. I am not sure I could get through the new and improved US Homeland Security procedures wearing it on my wrist.

Any Mac users with the Galilee? Their smart track software didn't work. Scubapro put me in touch with their tech guy. About the fourth version of the software worked (the others didn't recognize the Galilee, just older model Uwatec computers) If your wondering version 1.8 is the one that worked.
Thing is it records dive time as universal standard time. Both the computer and my Mac software are set to CA time but the time in the downloaded dives still matches the Universal time and date.

If you find out what happened, would it be possible to post what caused the issue?
