    Default Oregon Whiz V1

    Hi Guys
    Iím on the lookout for anyone with an Oregon who would like to test a program.
    Unlike 64st Whiz, I do not own an Oregon to test, so should be someone who knows how to unbrick them.

    Itís pretty basic for now, but once tested, Iíll support user supplied background image bitmaps like 64st Whiz does.

    As far as I can tell there are lots or Oregons, but only 3 different firmwares, or 4 if you want to go back to 200/300/400.

    Edit, it also looks as though only the older Oregons have image backgrounds, and 600/700 donít.

    Hi, I did have a big break from any new GPS stuff at all, and buying any new units as well.
    Iíve got a problem investing much time in a program for a hardware unit Iíve never owned.
    Some I have, and 66 I still have access to. 66 Whiz is best, and has not yet been broken by future firmwares.

    I also have trouble writing Windows programs, they mostly trigger too many virus detectors,
    and for every update of anything, copies have to be sent to Microsoft and every other virus checker company to get whitelisted.
    Thatís been a PITA for a paid program, let alone a fun one.
