Let's start off this new Section with a Survey.

Who has a GPS and What Make and Model?

I have the Garmin Vista HCx. Got it because of the Color Screen, It will accept a memory card and the price was right at Walmart.com. They don't sell these in the store but you can get online.

I am still learning how to make it work for me. I scratch my head everytime I turn it on. But the more I use it the more I like it.

Let's here about your GPS.

We were out yesterday and jShort had the Legend. He was having trouble picking up Satelites. I am not sure of the difference in mine and his but I never have trouble thru the trees and stuff.

I checked on Walmart.com and they have the Vista HCx for $229. I paid $219 a month ago.

I had a 350 until someone in Nashville wanted it. They don't make them anymore.

That is where I got mine from also. I got a set of the maps from Amazon also and it is great. It shows alot of detail of Coves and such in remote areas.

This one is a nice little refurbished unit for $100, I bought one and it can be upgraded to a crossover and use TOPO maps as well.

The latest word I have received is that topo maps are not available for the crossovers....I don't think the person understands what I am asking so I am continuing to dig deeper.

I have an old Magellan Sportrak Map. Had it for 6 or 7 (maybe longer) years. I got the topo map program for it but it only holds 8mg. When I bought this one the units that would take a memory card were VERY expensive. I have a lot of tracks for Royal Blue in it.

It is the one that I have. It will do everything you want. It has a Memory Card Slot, Color Screen, and Most Excellent Sat. Reception. In fact I have never lost a signal yet under heavy tree cover or anything. I know that some of the lower end (Cheaper) units have trouble picking up signal in heavy foliage.

I got mine from Walmart.Com and it was 219.00. I see now they are 254.00. Still worth it in my opinion.

If you get it go ahead and get the Ram Mount. I got the one with the Adjustable Ball. It fits right onto your handle bars and no worries about losing your GPS. It holds it in there snug. I think it cost around 35.00.

Here is the Website I ordered it from:

Well not everyone uses the same model. But, The Garmins Interface is similiar across there line so it is not hard to help someone else. Most of the menus are the same.

I just figured I could spend 170.00 and get the so...so... model or step up a little to the Memory Card, Color Screen and Better Reception.

It takes a little time to get use to using it but it is not to hard.

Hope all this helps and let is know what you end up with.

my garmin was on amazon for 110 shop around and make the best use of search engines to get the best bang for your buck. this unit does really well on the trail however from time to time it gets turned around when geocaching. I found it works best when it is on the handle bar instead of being held.

Let's here about your GPS.
I have a GArmin 76CSx handlebar mounted with a Ram mount.

I would like one of those that has a Qwerty keyboard so that I could add notations quickly. This one is note capable but a note is very difficult and time consuming to create.

In the last two years I have collected over 400 tracks of the North Cumberland WMA, Coal Creek and Brimstone areas. I now have bought software and developed a method of generating Garmin images that install all of this info onto a programmable Garmin. I have created a road-trail image map, a hydro map, a topo map, a WMA map, and have started building a POI map... all simultaneously displayed on the GPSr screen. The screen is quite busy with the topo visible, so I only turn it on/off as needed. I don't have property lines for Brimstone and Coal Creek but will add those in if I can get the info. I don't have all the trails yet for some of the areas, and some trail changes have been made recently that I haven't captured... so this is a continuing work in progress. I'm also working on making the road-trail image routeable, but I haven't found my bug problem as yet. More and more challenges keep popping up. I am hoping to be able to market the Garmin compatible images sometime within the next year.

I am also working on an computerized version of this same area so that a person can edit/print areas of interest. This one will be free...

My problem is that I don't have all the data collected yet. I've been working on collecting data now for over two years. It is really a time consuming task to collect the data. I need another trail ride... and another... and another. These last 28 months, I've ridden over 5700 miles collecting data and other riding. I like three riders max on a data collecting ride.
