Hi Mr. D.,mrdinh said:someone recommend which one to buy?
Hi Chris,Bikinchris said:I will reccomend a completely different product. I think the very best GPS navigation system comes from Delorme. If you use a laptop like I do, their GPS system uses very good software and ther GPS device plugs into a USB port. It can give you verbal directions and using the laptop screen to navigate is much easier than those little screens on the handheld device:
It even costs less than many of the handheld ones!
The Garmin Street Pilot's are certainly great units, can't go wrong there. In my case, when I put my system together, they were still in the $900 range and I was too cheap to buy one :lol:gho said:I highly recommend this unit, and it really works best for me. As far as having a PDA in a GPS - I think it's far more useful to have a phone in my PDA like the Treo 650 - that way you can even browse Nikon Cafe while in line at the local resturant.
Anyways, how often do you use GPS outside of the car anyways? If you wanna handheld GPS, get the Gecko to connect to your D1x/D2x - it's smaller than most cell phones (I have the 201).
It can be daunting. You might want to take a look at these folks as well, fairly inexpensive but it really works well:mrdinh said:thanks all...lots of new ideas..maybe more confused than ever...i wished i could rent one out and try it
