Joining the GPS gang

#1 Postby The Sly Fox » Fri Jun 06, 2008 10:55 pm

I have finally decided to get myself a GPS.
After struggling with the Cornish Bridges Walk the other week I came to the conclusion that a little help may be required.
So I have a shiny new Garmin eTrex Vista HCx on it's way from the USA.

Good luck with it. It's certainly helpful to have a GPS at times.
next target 2000 - hopefully some time in 2010 (ha, ha, make that 2013)

GPs does make life easy - some times it's like shooting fish in a barrel I am sure you will enjoy your new GPS

its good to have a gps sometimes when you look at it and find you have several boxes very close by without reading all of the clues.
