  1. Hi all, Trying to decide between CN2008 DVD or NT. Is there a difference in speed when re-drawing maps using the higher compressed NT version on a 60CSx? Is there no difference at all? If the re-drawing speed of the maps is important to me, should I get the plain CN 2008? Thanks!
  2. LOL, first post got whacked due to a timeout.... Anyway, now shipping from TVNAV.com for $60.00
  3. I happened to stumble across an article in Boston Sunday Globe a number of years ago that peaked my interest and soon after ran out and got the trusty blue Legend I have since had many gps' now using a 60CSx. What fun!
  4. Hi all, Thanks for the replies about what you like and don't like. It's a bummer that there is no track log feature, but that's not a big deal for me. Other than that, sounds like this device is a winner. I could always use my 60CSx in the vehicle, (as I've done before) but I would really like to get a dedicated auto unit. Anyone have thoughts on the new Nuvi 200/50/70 series? Thanks
  5. Hi All, Looking to add another GPS to the collection, specifically an auto unit and for price and functionality I don't think the Nuvi 350 can be beat. Does anyone here have the Nuvi 350 and can you comment about what you like and don't like or would you have purchased a different model? I saw the Nuvi 350 at Walmart for $369 and thought it was a steal... Thanks
  6. I just checked and it says in stock shipping today
  7. http://www.gpsnow.com has them in stock and shipping...i order from them all the time. they are great and ship same day!

  9. Hi, Sounds like you are focused on getting a handheld. I have a Kenwood TH-F6A which I like, but probably would not take it outdoors with me into the woods. I don't find it durable or weatherproof enough. The Yaesu's are quite nice and I would recommend the FT-60R which also allows full power on AA's with the optional battery pack. It's durable, weatherproof and will serve you well outdoors. Others contemplating the same question as you have gone with the FT-60R and have not been disappointed. Good luck on the test... it's easy Read about it here... http://www.eham.net/reviews/detail/4286 73's Kevin, KB1OBG

    city nav9?

    That's precisely why I only upgrade my CN every 2 years...I'm on CN7 right now and will get CN9 when it comes out
  11. Well, I never use rechargeable batteries as I always found they deplete very fast in GPS units but tend to work well in other electronic devices. I either use alkaline's or the lithiums and have had very good luck with them and no compass problems on my 60CSx. Although there is a setting for what type of batteries you are using in the setup screen, this is only for providing an accurate battery power reading as far as I know. Other than that, I really have no ideas

  14. LOL, 23cm.... i don't know anyone who even has equipment for that band
  15. Nice link from the gpslodge.com website. The photos show all the key areas of the case. If I had an eTrexC series this would be the case for me.
  16. I was wondering the same thing. Good question If you read the reviews it's a clamshell with a spring on it for tension. Plus I believe you also secure it with the lanyard. Funny, they don't mention that in the description.
  17. Not sure if anyone has posted about this case for the eTrex, but I like it... http://www.amazon.com/NEW-2007-E-Z-Grip-eT...124&sr=8-15
  18. All the more reason to become a licensed ham operator and carry a handhed. You can pretty much hit a local repeater anywhere in the US and get yourself some help. You're very limited with FRS and GMRS radios and I personally wouldn't rely on them in the backcountry/mountains
  19. Too bad they still use re-chargeable li-ion batteries. I'd like to see AA's, and wouldn't mind the additional bulkiness of the unit if that's that was the only con. Could this be a limitation in regards to the amount of power needed by the unit for both GPS and radio functionality as to why they chose li-ion?
  20. If I was you, I would return CN8 after you get it, as CN9 will be released in June. Only a few more weeks for the most up to date maps
  21. What chipset is this and how does it compare to the SIRF in the Garmin units? Or is it the same thing High-Performance Technology Features STMicroelectronics chipset with SiGE RF front-end and DeLorme firmware for outstanding signal acquisition and retention. Works equally well under dense foliage or in-vehicle.

    If you think Garmin is bad, then you should visit Walt Disney World and watch the money flow right out of your wallet no printer needed!
