I thought it was interesting that a number of the touch-screen Garmins have a larger screen than the 62's for instance, yet taking into account how much of the screen is used for buttons the usable space is a fraction less.PLC85501 wrote:I'm not crazy about the touch-screen models mainly because they draw more power and don't really provide the extra usability to justify the cost
I'm thinking the folks who design them don't actually use them... kind of like engineers designing software only they can understand, instead of real world people doing the look/feel/flow design work then turning it over to the programmers to make it work that way.PLC85501 wrote:maybe Garmin (or a competitor) will introduce a product based on actual customer feedback!
A "tad foreign?" I'm on my third GPS and still don't know how to work the damned things. What's Basecamp? What's Mapsource? I tried to find out one time but it was, well, all too foreign for me. ;)Alston Neal wrote:I just bought the 62s on closeout. I think it must be pretty good.. ;)
Grasshopper in a great pm gave me some good info, that 2 weeks later I'm starting to grasp.
I loaded Basecamp, no prob, loaded a free AZ. topo to my laptop.....1.5 hours....... :tt:
Now getting it to the gps.....
I think I may go with the Garmin topo which should be easier and hopefully better detail.
BTW, I don't even own a cellphone so this is all a tad foreign.
