Profiles
Profiles are a collection of settings that allow you
to optimize your Colorado from one type of use to
another, such as moving from recreational use to
automotive. Because the Colorado can be used for a
variety of GPS functions, saving specific profiles for
different functionalities allows you to quickly move
from one type of activity to another. It also allows you
to easily share your Colorado with another user.
Colorado™ Series Owner’s Manual
Basic Operation
Setting up Profiles
The Colorado comes preloaded with five default
profiles: Recreational, Geocaching, Automotive,
Marine, and Fitness. You can also create your own
profiles. See pages 25 and 28.
Creating and Using Waypoints
Waypoints are locations you record and store in the
Colorado that you might want to return to later or share
with other users. You can mark waypoints at any time
on the Colorado.
To mark a waypoint:

Geocaching
Geocaching is a high-tech version of treasure
hunting. Geocachers seek hidden treasures using GPS
coordinates posted on the Internet by those hiding the
geocache. Using your Colorado, you can search the
backwoods or urban streets to find the hiding spot of
the geocache.
The first step in using your Colorado to hunt and find
geocaches is to download a geocache from
www.geocaching.com. The Colorado is supported
by the site, and after registering, you can download
geocaches directly to your Colorado.
Note: Downloading geocache locations to your
Colorado requires installing the Garmin plug-in.

Customizing the Colorado
Calibration
You can calibrate the altimeter and compass from the
Calibration page.
Calibrate the altimeter by entering information or
letting the Colorado determine the elevation and
pressure. The Colorado relies on barometric pressure
to determine elevation, and the pressure at any given
elevation can fluctuate. You must know the elevation
(from a map point or other reliable data) or the pressure
(calibrated to sea level) for your current location.
Calibrate the compass by following the on-screen
directions.
To calibrate the altimeter select Shortcuts >
Setup > Calibration > Altimeter.
1. If you know the elevation, select Yes and enter
the information. Select No if you do not know the
elevation.
2. If you know the pressure select Yes. Select No if
you do not know the pressure.
3. A “Calibration Completed” or “Calibration
Failed“ message appears after calibration is
completed.
Fitness Setup
To connect an optional Garmin Heart Rate Monitor or
Garmin Bike Cadence Sensor to your Colorado, select
Shortcuts > Setup > Fitness.
Heart Rate Monitor—to use the Colorado with a heart
rate monitor, select On. Select Off when not in use.
Search for a Heart Rate Monitor—selecting this
automatically begins a search for a Garmin Heart
Rate Monitor and the message “Searching” appears.
A “Connected” message appears when the Colorado
connects to a Garmin Heart Rate Monitor.
Bike Cadence Sensor—to use the Colorado with a bike
cadence sensor, select On. Select Off when not in use.
Search for a Bike Cadence Sensor—selecting this
automatically begins a search for a Garmin Bike
Cadence sensor and the message “Searching” appears.
A “Connected” message appears when the Colorado
connects to a Garmin Bike Cadence sensor.
Note: To determine if you are connected
to another Colorado, move away from other
Colorado units, sensors, or monitors.
