I'm surprised if his 76 is working that it gets him lost. Do you know what kind of failures he was experiencing?
He gets lost because he's Uncle Jim. Quite a funny thing each year in Grayling, MI. Sometimes he heads off with someone else's rifle, his car alarm goes off at 5am when he tries to unlock his vehicle in the cold mornings and hits the wrong button, and you always want to get in the breakfast line before Uncle Jim as he seems to take a great portion of the meal. Classic was coming up to my blind one morning looking for his. Told him his was "over there." He walks off. 10 minutes later, I hear him outside my blind saying, "Finally, I found it!" "Nope. Still my blind, Uncle Jim." We are going to attach a 12' 2x4 to him so he has to walk straight (bungie cords have been discussed also.)
He is looking to upgrade his "76" (that's what it is) and I'm doing all I can to help him out. He has been one fun Uncle Jim at deer camp for the past 23 years.
Here is what he sent me: (the boundary lines he mentions are what I put on other's GPSr's because we hunt on a preserve with only certain areas open to hunting.)Mike
I have listed the following options I am looking for in replacing my GPS, Please advise the cheapest mode that will meet my needs.
1. Color picture
2. Will show terrain-hills and valleys
3. Can be downloaded with boundary lines of no hunting zones from your laptop
4. Easy to use
5. Accurate positioning
6. Touch sensitive
Mike- This list is not in concrete. Please advise any changes or additions you might suggest. I certainly can afford a good one, but I`d consider it a waste of money to buy one only to want another soon thereafter.
Thanks so much for your time amd input. I am curious how you use your GPS every day. I use a larger GPS to travel with!
Oh, and THANK YOU for showing me the differences between the 450 and the 450t. This sounds like a good device and since my 60Csx might one day die on me, I am inclined to get this one to replace it.
Good people here and most helpful.
