# waypoints / # routes / # waypoints per route ?

Recommended Posts

eTrex = 500wp/1 route - 50 wp per route

Geko 201 = 500wp/20 routes - 125 wp per route

 

How important are the additional route and wp per route capabilities of 201?

 

HELP! - I'm really new to GPS.

Unless you're going to be also buying mapping software, you'll probably never create a route with more than 50 waypoints.

PRIME SUSPECT: WHatare 50 waypoints equal to in distance? I am considering buying a LEgend (50 waypoints) or a ST Map (25 waypoints). If youre not a fanatic, will 25 waypoints be enough? thanks wbigg@hotmail.com

The number of wayüpoints does not tell you what distance you can cover. The number does tell you though how much detail you can include in a route. The greater the distance (of the route) the more waypoints you will need for detail.

With my etrex I could cover about 300km, BUT travelling a lot on highways.

 

My tip? Buy a GPSr with the cap. to store more than less.

For GeoCaching though # of wp / route is rather irrelevant.
