+Deckyon Posted February 26, 2004 Share Posted February 26, 2004 I guess I am just curious. Other than Geocaching and its derivatives, what do you use your GPS for? I have the Magellan Meridian Platinum with 3 SD Ram cards with the Topo, Streets/Dest and Direct Route on each. (128MB Cards filled with each map type) I use the internal compas and long/lat to help polar-align my telescope. I also use it for sunrise/set and moon rise/set as well as well as phase. I use the DirectRoute to help with street navigation (has not failed even once) I am a member of LocalHikes.com and use the GPS to map out the trails I hike for reporting. I use the backtracking and street routing to help when out on photo shoots where we flip coins at intersections to determine which direction we go. You can end up in the more obscure locations and we have gotten lost before, but not since using the GPS. I am interested in finding out what we all use our GPSs for. Looking forward to your responses. Quote Link to comment
