	Thanks! I always get confused about that -- incipient senescense, 
I suppose ...

	It worked nicely -- except for my waypoints, which seem to've 
gotten left behind, or maybe buried. I tried to transfer them in afresh 
from a GPS, and failed. Maybe I can locate that rpm that had "garmin" in 
it; it might not've gotten onto the T42 ...

	Thanks again!
