  1. I am mainly interested in the thompson, Caribou area i guess central B.C. two of my friends just purchased Garmins and it looked to us like the magellan topo was more detailed whith back roads and small lake names. I think one of my friends will be returning his map 60 csx for an eXplorist, Im quite happy with the topo for my 500. We were just curious to see if any one else had any thoughts on this, thanks.
  2. Does anyone have any clue as to which is better for B.C. I have magellan but am interested in Garmins Topo Map?
  3. Does anyone have any idea on the average life span of batteries in the 60 cx?

    Topo Problems

    No problems with it save two things: 1) eXplorist seems to choke on high detail mode 2) The contour lines are garbage in Ontario. I've seen it miss the Niagara Escarpment in places. Otherwise, it's great for showing me where the rivers, swamps and bridges are - which can be handy for a geocacher! Thanks for the help, I have an eXp 500 and didnt know what to expect with the map. Ive had a few problems with my Magellan explorists recently like not being able to download the new firmware. But I think ill get the map.
