Buying A New Gps Online

Recommended Posts

I bought a 60csx from globalpositionigsystems.


I phoned the place up first just to make sure that I would be able to contact someone if I had any problems.


The guy at the other end was very helpfull and fully understood why I wanted to check before I bought from them.

I bought my Vista Cx (International basemap) at this place via eBay:

...straight forward and cheapest I found.


Do not concern yourself with the installed basemap - it is irrelevant because the microSD card will allow you to expand and install skiploads of maps.


Using a 256 MB microSD card (instead of the paltry 32 MB leftovers that Garmin sends out), I have installed the street-level maps for the whole of the UK and Ireland, Holland and a good bit of Germany - just because I could - and this is using City Navigator V8 as the data source so using non-autorouted Mapsource data, you could get an even bigger area installed.


You should have taken the opportunity to have a closer look at my Garmin at the Ely event this weekend...
