New firmware of Garmin devices often contains some new features instead of missing old bugs. Since the translation doesn't keep pace with the features I am completing the german translation for GPSMap 62/78 just for fun. My latest translated file can be found here.
While doing so I found two minor issues in the Garmin GPSMap 78. Since two posts weren't published by the moderators in the regarding forum so far I post them here.
The Photo Viewer has a bug at sorting images.
If you call the menu like this:
Photo Viewer -> [Menu] -> Sort Photos -> Near a Location -> A Map Point
you can point on the map, but you cannot select any point to use it but only press "Go" and start routing or exit by pressing [Quit].
The other issue is more a curiosity and most likely will never be fixed by Garmin.
At GARMIN/Garmin/Text/ .gtt files are stored which contain the translations for the different interface languages.
Today I discovered this:
When the strings are sorted alphabetically like this
<str> <tag>TXT_Acquiring_Code_MSG_STR_M</tag> <txt>Mit chirpTM verbunden <str> <tag>TXT_Acquiring_Satellites_STR_L</tag> <txt>Suche Satelliten</txt> </str>
"Acquiring Satellites" doesn't get translated.
Reversing the order of the strings the translation works fine:
<str> <tag>TXT_Acquiring_Satellites_STR_L</tag> <txt>Suche Satelliten</txt> </str> <str> <tag>TXT_Acquiring_Code_MSG_STR_M</tag> <txt>Mit chirpTM verbunden <str>
