BML Posted September 17, 2002 Share Posted September 17, 2002 Hello everyone- I have been following discussions on this site with great interest. I will purchase a GPS primarily for hiking (fall/winter use...where is that trail anyway??? and in the summer to calculate how quickly I am travelling over varied terrain). Having read mucho posts, I am strongly favoring the Magellan Sportrak Pro. I have never ever ever used a GPS before but your excitement is certainly contagious. I have one concern/question... If I understand correctly hiking trails do not appear on basemap or topo maps...So what is involved in making good use of the GPS on/off the trail. One suggestion I have read is going to Topozone site, looking up the trail on a map and slowwwwly inputting coordinates into the GPS. What will I get out of purchasing Mapsend Topo if trails are not included? Does anyone who hikes miss the elevation profiling that is available in certain Garmin units? Thanks Bernard Quote Link to comment
