  • 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.

    Fully agree on the need for backups, agreed they are a waste of time but how you will wish you had should the need arise, and it will sooner or later.
  • Rugged Smartphone v Premium GPS

    Just an update as illness and injury has prevented me from riding thus far this year.

    Did 85 miles on the BSA Super Rocket as first run last week. Montana on the bars with OSM mapping outward bound, all as expected. Used the AGM on the way back with the new CoPilot GPS running and was pleasantly surprised at the improvement, cloudy day with showers so sunlight readability did not come into it.

    Weekend did a 280 mile round trip in the wagon and used the Drivelux 50 on the way out, more strange routing through a slip-road on the outside of a bend on the other side of the road. Used the AGM/CoPilot combination on the way back, preferred it and certainly trusted it more than I trust the routing on the Drivelux.

    Thanks Boyd.

    Have not had time to play last, couple of days, upgrading the home net and deep into ethernet cabling, extension aerials, IP addresses, subnets, an extra access point and a bridge at present, easy to lose complete days trying to get the things to talk! especially when one was faulty and you think it must be something you are doing through ignorance.
