2 tadpole questions

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

As you can probable tell by my "tadpole" standing, I am pretty new to this forum.

 

There seems to be a lot of knowledge and experience in this group , and I hoped you wouldn't mind answering a few questions.

 

1)is the "detailed basemap" we find in the basic Garmin etrex legend(the $150 blue one) the same as the ones in the more expensive etrex legend c, venture c, vista and vista c?

 

2)Is there a website where one can compare the Garmin and Magellan basemaps side-by-side by plugging in the same coordinate?

 

Cheers,

GD

"detailed basemap"

LOL

 

I would think there the same. And would recommend finding a local that you could (illicitly) borrow topo or metroguide maps from.

 

Not sure of the comparison but im sure they are equally bad.

QJ is laughing because for anyone who has owned a Garmin mapping GPS will tell you, "detailed basemap" is a contradiction-in-terms. A bit like jumbo shrimp, big mac, plug and play, american style etc. :laughing: The Legend is a good unit and you can fit quite a few detailed maps in it. Certainly enough for a day of geocaching. I'd recommend the Roads & Rec Canada myself as you can fit in the entire GTA and only take up about 1.5MB. These are extra-cost, of course. I'm certain a fellow geocacher would be more than happy to allow you to evaluate their usefullness by downloading to your unit.
