Getting a screen capture from some of the Garmin handheld mapping GPS units or PNDs isn’t as easy as it should be. I wish there was a button on many of these units that allow me to capture a shot of my screen when I’m not connected to a computer via a USB cable. If I need a screen shot, I have to turn my Garmin 60CSx off when I get to something interesting. Once I get back to a computer, I have to connect via USB and quickly turn on the unit and grab the image with xImage before the screen changes. It works, it’s free, and it’s better than nothing! From Garmin:
xImage allows you to retrieve and update images on your GPS. For example, xImage makes it possible to get a screenshot from most GPS models. In addition, with certain newer models, xImage allows you to update some images (splash screen, waypoint symbols, etc.) with your own creations.
