Yep - Garmin (eTrex) units allow you to show any routes stored in memory on the map. You can change the colour/line style too to avoid any confusion.
off road GPSs? recommendations?
I have the same model - eTrex vista HCx and I have the same problem.
I have mine set to "Track up" as opposed to "North up". Some of the time it works. Some times it doesn't. When it suddenly inverts (ie rotates 180 degrees when you're not looking ....that is really confusing. (BTW - In response to Simwit's suggestion...mine is set to navigate "off road")
I haven't tried turning the electronic compass off though. Will give that a go this w/e
Sorry dont agree with your comparison about Satmap and Garmin Oregon touch screen
Oregon = GUI touch screen, everything can be done with one gloved digit.
Sat map = 8 way joy stick, 4 keys and multifunction key, How is this easier?
Screens - Satmap has 1cm square more screen area but the Oregon resolution is better. I would say on balance they are equal?
Satmap Display size
320 x 240
Display size 7.6cm
240 x 400 pixels
Clearly you pays your money etc but I have had GPS for ages and just up graded to Oregon 6 months ago. Its extremely simple to use GUI. Works with one finger which is all I can afford to use on the move with gloves its a very very robust unit. I looked at satmap and I didnt think it was robust enough to sit on the front of my bike. Have a look at he Oregon - its bullet proof - well nearly!
Satmap not robust? That's just funny...
Ive got a garmin 60csx with full uk topo maps installed for £140 if anyones interested?
Garmin Oregon here. Fantastic bit of kit fro on off road with OS mapping. Great for navigating on foot to.
