Thanks Kevin..I wondered about that, the addons are expensive and if I am going to pull the trigger I want the latest and greatest.

reviving an old thread since my etrex apparently has puked after years of abuse bouncing on dashes, off the floor, off the ground; not very durable


all the gps' in this thread are beyond my finances. i'd like something simple and cheap (around $150). if it works with my etrex's brand spanking new computer cord that i never got to use, that would be a bonus i would like to eventually be able to transfer trail info onto computer maps....not looking for turn by turn street directions...that's what i have a phone with mapquest for.

should i just stick with an etrex? or is there something better out there?

I just got an etrex Legend HCX with car charger, car mount, 128 card and USB cable with nationwide road (not trail) software for 208 bucks shipped from costco.com.

I'm looking at a Garmin nuvi 780 on Costco's site for 250$ Its a discontinued model but used to list for around 600$. Its got the SD slot so adding topo maps to it seems to be easy. Any reason not to go with this one?

Ige, I still have the Etrex legend (blue one) that works perfect. Some map software and all the hook ups etc. for $75 if you are interested. LMK what you think, I am in Mexico now but will be back next weekend.

ok - what about gps pucks/receivers? Anyone have input there? I get fancy smancy pda's from work, and need to add a receiver. Are there any that work with topo et al?

I have my venerable magellan that I use for old school real style navigation in the backcountry...

I have GPS in my Blackberry and use it with Google Maps all over the world. Its great but you need a GPRS data connection to get the planimetric mapping.
