  • What is going on?

    Not as bad but some will remember I played satnav ping-pong with Garmin a year ago.

    The 680T I finished with only charges to 99%, should not be but I live with that.as it's fairly insignificant.

    The 50LMT-D had the battery become disconnected and gives the occasional very strange routing. The battery is next to useless for route planning and you have to connect it to power to route plan (I'm not a basecamp fan and don't like over using the fragile looking USB socket)

    Favourite unit of mine at present for bike/walking is the second hand Monterra I bought recently, battery life and sunshine readability are better than the 680T in my view.
  • Looking for help selecting the right GPS for me.

    Ah the search for the holy grail!

    One caveat is Tom Tom Go is in a bit of a state of flux at present with the current release frozen for some time due to multiple complaints. It's just been restarted.

    Good advice from Boyd, keep us updated please. I keep looking at the interesting Carpe Iter but it's a small company and development seems slow to me.
