Does anyone use GPS Utility to enter up their boxes onto the gsp? I have used the programme for several years. Last week I tried to use it as usual, but it doesn’t seem to be working now. I downloaded it again from the website but it still won’t work. I have downloaded easygps instead, and that seems to be working fine. Anyone else had problems?

Hi Brinnie, I use Tracklogs which seems to work well for transfering from PC to GPS. You can get a free trial download here http://www.tracklogs.co.uk/cgi-bin/publ/user.cgi

Wires, I think they're talking about GPS devices such as Magellan, etc. while you obviously use a Windows Mobile device, such as a PDA or Smartphone.

I use Memory Map, too and what a brilliant application it is!

Not trying to be difficult here, but there are a number of differences.

Yes, Memory-Map is a GPS utility, but it's also a fully fledged GPS navigation package capable of running on Windows PC's and on Windows Mobile devices.

GPS Utility is a specific piece of software that allows users of Garmin, Magellan and similar GPS devices to upload and download data to and from Windows PC's, so it's quite different from Memory-Map.

Personally (like you, I suspect) I much prefer Memory-Map on my PDA phone, as I get the OS maps displayed at the same time, with the ability to instantly switch to the aerial photos.

By comparison, some GPS devices are glorified pocket calculators! I especially like being able to pre-plan walks using the PC component of Memory-Map, or to be able to review routes walked in 3D mode.

The thing to go for is http://www.colin-masters.net/dartmoor/letterboxing/index.html

It is free, it can load Mike Holidays updates, it is far far better then Memory Map and Anquit (however you spell that), and is specificically customized for Letterboxing ... best used together with Garmin Oregon, can be used for other devices aswell.
