Best device for mountain biking


Recommended Posts

My beloved Colorado 400t finally bit the dust after many years and many miles of dirt/mountain bike mapping. The usb connection broke and Garmin will only replace not repair the unit. If I'm going to replace the thing I wanted to see what others are using, any thoughts on the new gpsmap 62 for biking?

I also loved my CO 400T for mapping trails and bike riding. When mine died, I got an OR 550T and I like it much better than the CO. It does a great job on mapping trails. I also like it because of the camera. When I am GPSing stuff for my trail maps http://www.gpsfiledepot.com/maps/view/53 many times I use the camera to take a picture of something I want to add to the map. That is much easier than marking waypoints and either remembering what it is ar editing the waypoint with the GPS to describe what I am marking. The picture is georeferenced so I can open the picture in BaseCamp or MapSource (after exporting from BaseCamp), see what it is, and then add it to my maps.
