OK, so after the diaster that was buying a etrex legend off here (only £35, and sold it again) and hating every minute of it for the following reaons;
-uploading and downloading routes was nearly impossible (I failed completely after trying every concievable bit of software recomended)
-no free maps, I'm not paying £200 for a bit of software thats essentialy just OS mapping with built in obsolecance that I can either have for free off multimap or already have in paper form (which will never be obsolete, just turn to pulp eventualy but don't cost anywhere near as much and you only need to buy a few to cover 99% of your riding).
So things I want from it;
+ the moon on a stick
+ free mapping. Or if not, at least the ability to quickly and easily upload/download other people routes off the internet.
+ HRM, cadenece, and possibly the ability to measure power at some point in the future.
+on the PC side of it, measure height gain/loss as the GPS readout is invariably miles out.
Basicly something that works as a sat-nav on unfamiliar trails and as a training aid on more familiar ones.
Anything out there?
