Have the Forum folks considered opening a GPS forum
a thread for GPS users?I just got my feet wet with a used Garmin and I'm sure there are many riders out there who have vast amount of knowlege to share with us GPS n00bs.
They could post best/favorite rides,help with n00b questions,make recommendations from personal experiences,ect.
It made a great deal of sense
and I appreciate the effort in explaining the search function re:GPS.
I have read all 68 threads regarding GPS,some relevent,some not,before posting my request.I would think a forum on GPS would be a central location for the "GPS heads" to locate all info on the MOA forums.I'm sure space is a consideration here as well,but helping us 5%ers would be a nice addition here.
Some may be intimitated by a GPS and not want to spend the money w/o a basis of info beforehand,or have a place to go w/a question or 10 after taking the plunge.
The earlier and eloquent response on why a GPS is appealing to a map user is much appreciated.I too am a map collector/user and have over 200 as we speak,but the sheer wonder of info contained in even older units is amazing.
If you're lost,a map CANNOT help you nearly as much as a GPS can.And I've honed my mapreading skills since the Dark Ages.
Hopefully we can start a new forum for GPS users.
