Hi Marko! > Welcome to the club. I guess everyone will sooner or later realize that > the Garmin software is crap but the hardware is reasonable. But I think you have not yet tried the Oregon. If you think that other Garmin devices have bad software then you should look at the Oregon to taste really bad software! > I sort of > knew that before I got the Edge 705 in January 2009.

I hope that my Edge > won't die before that. :-) > My boyfriend jogged some days before at rain through the nearby forest. Afterwards the display of his forerunner was wet inside and broken. The forerunner was not completely damaged, he could read out his tracks, but the display remained dead even after a day. It had let water in but not out again. > I don't really agree on the furniture shops, though.

It is not that I would have something against furniture shops, it's more that I think there are more necessary shops that were forgotten. In older Garmin devices like the Etrexes one could easily use new numbers that let to multiple "Others" menus. In the Oregon the number is range is limited. > Don't get me started on that. In the Edge 705, Units is translated to > "Laitteet" (Devices) in Finnish. Power is translated to "voima" (force), > and in the Finnish translations, a possible unit of altitude is miles (I > guess it'd be feet). > I know that it is not easy to translate things correctly since the people who translate must know the context. And always errors can happen. I once worked for a company that built mobile phones. There we had often bad translations. For example, the word "left". The translator had not read the text that explained, that we meant, how many credits are left. So he translated it with the opposite of "right". Or another saw the word "English". In the explanation was written: "Do not translate it with the word "English" in your Language, but write down the name of your language in your language. So we got the greek word for english (Anglika) in the greek menu instead of "Ellinika". (All with greek letters, of course) > >> Normally I would suggest to recycle this item but it is located under >> lodging and there is no other thing that would make sense to be >> summarized under this item in my opinion. >> > > There is one, which I was just about to commit: > > +amenity=nursing_home [0x3002 resolution 21] > > But 0x3002 is already crowded (hospitals, doctors, healthcare=* etc). > Nursing homes are a form of lodging, so reusing the code of resort seems > reasonable. > Yes, indeed. It will perhaps confuse the Oregon users a bit, since they will find it under sorts of "holiday places", but they will live with it. ;-)))) > >> P.S: BTW: If you add something the next time to the svn I would suggest >> to add cuisine=bavarian to the same item as cuisine=german at >> amenity=restaurant. >> > > During my stay in Lübeck back in 1994, someone sent a postcard from > Bavaria to the student dormitory.

He was also the "real" inventor of Cinderellas Castle: http://blog.aldenblairevents.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/Neuschwanstein_1.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v644/bradonedge/2008/SchlossNeuschwanstein1.jpg Greetings from Dani
