Hey Leeny, good show :)

Take some picks of the install and post them up in tech. :lol: Let us know there if you are going to hard wire or go through the lighter.

I forgot to mention to everyone that I received my Garmin E-Trex Vista C a couple of weeks ago. It is relativley easy to use and very portable. The only gripe that I have at this point is that it does not come with enough detail from the factory. It mainly shows the main highways like I95 or the turnpike. In addition it does show reststops however it does not show city streets like rock island road or University drive for example.

I have done some research and it seems that Garmin sells a cd that I can download into the GPS to give me everything that I want. The cd is called Garmin Mapsource-Metro guide North America.

It is on sale at Bass Pro Shops for 99.00, and I have a $50 gift certificate.

Hummm, I just refreshed my memory to this model:
http://www.garmin.com/products/gps18/


Turn your laptop PC into a powerful street navigator with the GPS 18 — a GPS sensor bundled with nRoute™ and City Select software that automatically guides you with turn-by-turn directions and voice prompts to get you safely to your destination.

Similar to Garmin's MapSource® software, nRoute features an easy-to-use interface, making it intuitive to operate so you can focus on driving. It offers auto-routing and voice-prompting capabilities to virtually any address.


The GPS 18 ships with fully unlocked MapSource® City Select® CDs, which provide full coverage of the entire United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico (North America version) or major metropolitan areas throughout Western Europe (Europe version). Map detail includes highways, interstates, business and residential roads, with turn restrictions, speed categories, and other navigation features. It also features more than five million points of interest including restaurants, lodging, attractions, shopping, emergency services, post offices, and more.

The GPS 18 includes a 12 parallel channel, WAAS-enabled sensor, available with either a PC or USB connection. The receiver includes an integrated magnetic base and is less than three inches in diameter.

Traveling with your laptop on business or vacation? The GPS 18 is a simple, convenient, inexpensive way to turn your PC laptop into a personal navigator to get you where you're going.

OEM versions of the GPS 18 are also available.

Well my GPS arived. So fare so good. I do need to get Garmins City Select software. I want more detail.

I do have a question I hope someone can help me with. I have a couple of Excel spread sheets with wayponits on them. Is there a way to transfer this info into the GPS without inputing each one by hand? I have the USB cable and Garmins way point manager but the Excel file is not the correct file format. Does anyone know a trick to get this info into the GPS without manualy entering it again?

Has anyone had any experience with the new GPSs that are coming in the vehicles now. All my vehicles are too old and I've only seen the ones some of my friends have? What company seems to be the one making most of them and can anyone give us a run down :ya:

I know some guys just enter the address on a big trip but I have always been a fan of not letting it do the thinking for me and route on the desktop and move the route to my old GPS.....

I use a garmin rino 120. Fairly cheap hand held GPS/Radio. I use it for hunting, fishing, wheeling, and took it overseas to afghanistan where it performed wonderfully. One of the few electronics that didn't crap out on me over there.

I use the Magellan Meridian Marine. I use different chips for Bass fishing, Hunting, & 4 wheeling.
I love it and it works great. I just have to put the right (SD card) chip with maps and way points in.. :innocent:

I had a Garmin V Deluxe... Worked excellent!!! But I changed it for a Garmin 276c. Bigger Screen, Colors Screen, Memory Slot, Works Offroad - City - Marine. I think is the best GPS you could buy for our purpose: OFFROAD & CITY mostly. There are newer model like 376 - 386 - 486 as numbers go higher, soo the price. GARMIN 276c or 376 the best choice.

i went today to gps a old mud hole and decided to compare them. i forgot my old-old gps. but brought my handheld garmin and my tomtom. got the coordinates off google earth. they were both right on. id say anyone looking to navigate to 1 location, not a route, might think about the tomtom1. it is as cheep as any hand held gps. plus it will give you street direction. but it wont track you trip. i think the tomtom1 is about 130 now.

as with any purchase you must evaluate how you will use it. one that is right for me might not suit your needs.
i have multiple vehicles
88 jeep wrangler
55 willys pu
94 porsche
68 firebird
89 motor home

i am not buying 6 gps units so i definitely want a hand held

so one unit prevails for me.

Now I have to say it was a PIA with my hand held so I got the Garmin (thanks to crazy pete) Tail Guide with topo and love it! It sits firm where I can see and use it.. Plus it is removable and good for 10 hours out of the jeep! and when not is use it hides too.
