Re: Garmin 741xs Discontinued

I had a similar problem with a Ray C120. Turns out there's a trick to delete certain files off the memory card that the old plotters don't use anyway. Speeds things up a lot.

Thanks for the tip about the charging cradle. My B&G handheld remote cradle died, too, but I never thought to call to see if I could get it replaced out of warranty. Fortunately, it also has a USB charging port.
