I ditto on the 60csx...big_load wrote:I still use a Garmin GPSMap 60csx. The 62 is a current model that you can get a good price on now. The Garmin Oregon series is also worth looking at, but I haven't used one.
I'm with you there... after a lifetime on PC's I just got a MacBook and from Garmin BaseCamp is it, which I agree even for a free program it is worthless.kingsnake wrote:BaseCamp blows. I much preferred the older software that was available when I first bought my device (MapSource).
I use BaseCamp for only a few things, but I much prefer MapSource and still use it most of the time.kingsnake wrote:I much preferred the older software that was available when I first bought my device ( MapSource ).
Same here. I probably spend over 50% of my Haz time in MapDex Route Manager.CannondaleKid wrote:I'll continue to use Route Manager (thanks Joe!) for my route planning
Don't blame you. What a scam!CannondaleKid wrote:all the maps I bought for use with MapSource/BaseCamp on the PC will not work on the Mac. So even if I used BaseCamp I'd have to buy maps again. Not!
The iPhone most certainly gets GPS reception even when there is no cell signal. BUT it does not get GPS when in Airplane mode, and there is no way to override that setting. So you must have Airplane Mode turned off to use the iPhone GPS antenna, which will drain the battery very quickly if it is searching for cell service, making it an impractical option if you are using it for a breadcrumb track.Bradshaws wrote: iPhone with a 3D gps app that I like a lot but "no signal = no GPS"
