The adventure is that instead of doing the same old loops time and time again, I can plan a ride on previously untried roads and go out exploring confident in the knowledge that I won't end up stuck for miles on some horrible A road. I have found GPS tremendously liberating, and my new Venture Cx is even better than my original eTrex :?:Basil said:...don't start me on GPS. Where's the adventure in that?
Hallo Mart... actually, on reflection I think it's a Legend Cx (it came with USB cable and 64Mb SD card). It was about £175 from whichever Internet supplier was cheapest at the time. The base maps are not very detailed; I bought the whole of Europe on eBay for about £16, plus a 2GB micro SD card, and managed (after several failed attempts) to load it all into the GPS last night. It's a job best done in small chunks, because the GPS doesn't seem to like having the whole of Europe thrust at it all at once...MartDavis said:Nick,
Did you have to buy additional maps for the venture cx, or were the base maps OK? How much did the whole package cost?
