Scolers/Komodo,

If you don't mind me asking. What kind of $$$ are you looking at for that type of setup?

Check this one out. http://www.ja-gps.com.au/travroute_asus636mypal.html

You can also buy the OziExplorer maps for it as well.

Troy its been 3 years since I bought GPS gear and since then prices have dropped rediculously.

The Garmin GPS MAP76C that I use with the blue charts and city navigator and that was around $2100.

That said today there are a LOT more options.

PDAs with a $20 blue tooth GPS reciver and a set of OziExplorer maps I would guestimate you could do for under $1k

Might be time for an upgrade.

Cheers
