Hey Guys!

I'm thinking of getting myself a GPS system. I've been told the Magellan Explorist Series are ok but a tad expensive whereas a Garmin Legend is just as good and a little cheaper.

Any thoughts?

I'm the same Ozzy but there are some features that are really handy such as saving the course you took to get to a location. That way you can find your way back there anytime.

Prices are coming down and the product is becoming so much more accurate it's quite amazing. eg. Most of Perth topo maps will fit on a Garmin GPS ... calcualate the number of topo maps and the total cost and it will be well above the cost if the GPS.
