  1. When adding notes are these saved and downloaded with the track?


    Operationally, the 10 limitation doesn't bother me. Anything that is worthwhile is downloaded to my PC via T7 for long term retention. I use a utility like Acronis True image nightly to then back up all my new and changed files. Consequently, I can easily and quickly deleted them from my PN-20. Also, the can be just as easily restored from Topo 7 if they are needed on the handheld again.

    Operationally, I would agree with your contention 10 track logs is plenty.


    In 2 years, I'm hoping to be on a multi-day hike where a laptop would be very inconvenient weight wise. 10 track logs could be a problem.


    (Hmmmm perhaps a good argument for an OQO.) :unsure:

  2. Is the 60CSx known as being more accurate then the Delorme products?


    My Garmin 60Csx is getting old. It has found me caches and has been through some Bush-Whacking Hell.


    I'm looking for a replacement after the first of the year <snip>


    Wow, mine is pretty old too, however the way I look at it if it's not broke don't fix it.

  3. Oh yeah, what I love is to go up in the mountains or the desert and record the track as I go. Then at home overlay it on the maps using Topo 7 to see how it lines up with the roads and trails there. Then I superimpose the track on those Color Aerials that I've downloaded from DeLorme with my $100 coupon and see how they match up to the trails on those photo images. It is amazing to see how well they line up.


    But, I think that you've put some similar above.


    Sounds good, perhaps Chip could chime in to tell us if recording to an SD card is on the road map.


    Not trying to start any flame wars, but could any of you give me some reasons as to why a new user who has never used a GPS device should choose a PN-40 over 60CSx?

  4. Sorry I meant track log. I do not own a GPS device so I have no idea what features are deemed standard.


    In terms of "tracklog" capabilities, is there any limit on the number of track points that can be saved with the PN-40? Also, how often are the track points archived to file? Are these points saved to internal memory or can they be saved to an SD card?


    . . . support for logging features as the Garmin 60CSx,
    Your 60CSx will record an activity log, how??? Perhaps you mean a tracklog, pretty much a standard GPS feature.

  5. Does this device have similar support for logging features as the Garmin 60CSx, specifically I am interested in being able to record an activity log while on hikes.


    Could any of you comment on the PN-40's logging capabilities.





  6. Can the PN-40's support detail tracking and logging like the 60CSx series?


    I'm still clining to God, my guns and my GPSmap 60CS and it's not even the "x' version. It is the most useful gadget I've every owned.

    You sound bitter! :anibad:
