I've got a Magellan Sport Trax and very rarely use it. The city streets software is mall locations being over a mile from where they actually are? Jeeze...

I picked up a Magellan eXplorist 210 (22MB map memory, b/w screen), basically a lower budget unit for 150 bucks. Seems like I'm the first person in this thread who got a Magellan. It took a while to learn how to just load up some cave coordinates. The basic manual did not even cover the subject. Had to upload the manual to my laptop and find it on page 86. My Garmin Nuvi in the truck was never this complicated, heck I never read the instructions for it (as it should be :banana: ).
Maybe that's why all you people use Garmin, eh?

I just got a Garmin Nuvi 350. Easy to use and I didn't have to read the instructions.
When facts are few and far between, hypothesis defies all logic, as to how an individual came to the conclusion, that the point that they are trying to make, is indeed true and not just the fabrications of a deluded mind.

Garmin 276C. Before that I had Garmin 176. Before that I had Garmin 2+.

276C is very versatile - off the road, on the road, portable. I rely on it constantly. I don't even know where I am without it. Where am I anyway?
