Garmin Hedge 605
I have just bought one.
I also have memory map software. Anybody know how to make the memory-map map appear as the map you look at on the gps (rather than the rubbish one it comes with)? I cant find it in the instructions.
I have put the map on an SD card & its in the units …but there must be a away of making the GPS read it.

Go and look at how much the Garmin maps are and have a grumpy face for the rest of the afternoon :-pPosted 12 years ago
Yeh, pants 🙁
The roady ones arent too bad & as I live in the South I can never get more than about a mile from a road, so they may have to do.
£149.99 thats too much… far far too muchPosted 12 years ago
You can get them cheaper than that (much cheaper if you look hard enough). Don’t bother with the Topo, it’s shite. Also, do your route planning on Bike Route Toaster(or MM and export as a GPX).
Sorry to tell you, the unit is next to uaseless with just the base map installed.

you may need to download the beta version thoughPosted 12 years ago
Hmmm, head off to look for *ahem” sources

The Topo maps are better than nothing off-road, they show contours, ground cover and paths, but it doesn’t differentiate between footpaths, bridleways and any other type of path.Posted 12 years ago
