    hello together
    I am new in this forum. At the beginning of January would like I in chiang May a GPS to buy. It will be used for motorcycling on roads (no dirt tracks) with my BMW (with plug socket). Which model is recommended and to which shop in addition? Thank you in advance for the assistance.

    The only official Garmin GPS shop in Chiang Mai is Canadian Tom's Top Gear bicycle shop.
    Contact details are
    Top Gear, Chang Moi Road. Phone: 053233450. Email Canadian Tom at
    but you will find the prices are quite high.
    For me the best bet is to get one from o/seas & the place I recommend is http://www.gpscity.com/
    The best mounts to use are Ram Mounts
    http://www.ram-mount.com/ramcat.htm
    but their website sucks, & it is easier to use the GPSCity link.
    I hope this is a help.

    The GPS I use is a Garmin GPSMap76S, but this model has been superceded by the 76C.
    For other GPS comments & ideas take a look at 2 GPS threads

    One of the shops at the Computer Plaza on the Super Highway near Chotana Rd is carrying the full line of Garmin GPS. Go up the stairs to the second floor and turn left.

    I will get the exact name of the shop next time I am over that way.

    Ever notice that "What the Heck!" is usually the right answer?
