    Map software package

    quote:Originally posted by topografix: Since you've been using EasyGPS, I'm interested to know if you've tried ExpertGPS (http://www.expertgps.com) and hear your opinions of it relative to GPSU. I'm always looking for areas to improve ExpertGPS, and your feedback would be greatly appreciated. ExpertGPS is a a great looking program with many features not found in GPSU and is probably worth the extra $20. I has a more professional look and feel as well. There are 2 things that might make GPSU a bit more useful to me however. One, it will accept any map I can scan or download from the web. ExpertGPS is limited to USGS topos and aerial photos. The USGS stuff is good, but not always the the best for certain navigation applications. For instance, I've made several canoe trips into Everglades NP. The topos for the Everglades are next to worthless, far to little detail. The prefered maps for canoe and kayak use in the coastal mangrove swamps are nautical charts. Other examples are the maps that come with many hiking and mt. bike guides. They are usually more up to date than the trail info on the USGS topos. And after 25 years of orienteering I've got a drawer full of highly detailed maps from regional meets. I hang on to the maps for use when I later go hiking in those areas. In fact I used these when placing my Hackett Hill cache and searching for BMW's Joe English. With all of these other sources, all I have to do is line-up two known points on the scanned map to calibrate them for use with GPSU. Second, GPSU comes in a freeware version that is functional enough for a casual user to download his GPS tracks to a Terra Server map and then save it as a jpg file. He can then print the maps, email them to friends or even include them in the cache web page. ExpertGPS is $60; the trial version is only good for 2 weeks and has the mapping feature crippled.

    use on motorcycle?

    I have a Garmin III+ that I mount to my BMW R1100R with a RAM mount. I think the RAM mounts are about as bulletproof as they come. www.ram-mount.com They make a mount for about anything. Their suction cup mount is great in a car. Most of the components in their mounts is made of aluminum instead of plastic, VERY durable. About the only plastic parts are the actual cradle around the GPS and the hard rubber coating on the balls. (as in ball and socket)
  3. although i see a wide variety the two types that i see most are computer related fields and people that work in environmental/geological/forestry type fields 2 opposites really the already outdoors type person and the people who are cooped up dying to get out i think its good to see such diversity myself i used to be an industrial painter/sandblaster (watertowers) after a bad fall some years back i really have had a tough time with a new career i really liked what i did and dont seem to be able to find the same happiness in other work so currently i make radiators for mercedes and bmw less than rewarding but its a job

    12volt power cable - for BMW Motorcycle

    If you can get the smaller plug and have an existing GPS power cable for regular size socket then you could cut off the large one and connect the smaller to the wires. You could even splice the smaller plug onto the cable as is without removing the other. That way you can use it for both bike and car. I'm not familiar with BMW electrics. You would have to make sure that the bike is a "negative" ground like most cars are. They may have it as a "positive" ground and without knowing what you are doing could possibly damage the GPS. A standard voltmeter would tell you what you need to know. The bike shop where you get service would point you in the right direction. [This message has been edited by Olar (edited 27 June 2001).]

    Mission 3: East Coaster

    quote:Originally posted by bob_renner:Are you familiar with Chestnut Hill Road? I hear tell there was a big black SUV tailing a small vehicle in that area. They lost the tail in some residential area near Chestnut Hill Road. Big black SUV? Probably Dean Kamen's Humvee. The small vehicle could have been 'Ginger', i.e. It, out for a road test. (FWIW, BMW's Joe English cache is at the foot of Chestnut Hill. Great cache. Unexploded ordnance and Erethizon Dorsatum: What more could a cache seeker want?)
