    Hi friends,

    I know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about GPS...
    As I'm from the "old school": is it SO useful? :oops:

    What should be your advices about brands, models, uses... at a "normal-moderate" price (look, I have not even any idea of the price!).
    I suppose one has to download maps and sign a contract with some "provider", no?
    How it works please?
    :roll:

    Thanks,
    Gobs

    I am a beginner also but learning fast.

    The following thread will gove you a lot of the answers you are looking for.

    I am enjoying the learning experience and finding specific use now in going off road in our native forestry and back blocks.

    Is also pretty handy for finding streets and addresses in cities I am not well acquainted with.

    On the advice of members here I chose the Garmin 60Csx and it works well for me.

    Good luck
