new & interesting places for your GPS

New User first GPS

 

Hi everyone
Just got my first gps a TomTom One. Has anyone done any geocaching with this unit. Also I have a coworker who would like to buy one for camping and fishing spots. Is this unit any good if you are off the road in the middle of a forest and you find a fishing hole you want to come back to another time?

New User First GPS

Ahoy everybody
I finally broke down and got my first GPS unit yesterday at Costco. I bought a Magellan 4250 unit. I have been looking for a while at many different units and this one had the things I wanted for (what I considered) a reasonable price. I like it pretty well so far.

no roads in the forrest

Can geocaching be done with a T2? probably but in the off road mode will never be as good as a handheld.

I would recommend a handheld that has the ability to receive routes and lay breadcrumb, sometimes when you go wandering in the woods the "as the crow fly" is not the best choice to return to your vehicle, there maybe insurmountable obstacles that will prevent you from easily going back on a straight line, for those instances just reverse the breadcrumb route and the handheld will take you back the same way you got there.

Got my first GPS...it's built in to my new kenwood dnx5120. It's Garmin GPS.....it's amazing not being able to get lost smile

Oh you still can get lost,

Oh you still can get lost, but not forever. It will eventually get you there or close enough that common sense can take over.

Hey Jerry, what's the story?

Welcome aboard! As the owner of a TTOne NE I agree with Flaco - get a handheld unit for geocaching. smile

If you'd like to learn more about your One then I suggest you also try the unofficial TomTom site: www.tomtomforums.com Oh, and don't forget to register the unit on the official TomTom site as well! wink

Encountered my first snag

when looking for an address, I got four streets with the same name in the beginning. The trouble is the name is longer than what is displayed on the screen. there should be some kind of scroll so you can see the whole name. I picked the first one and wound up at the wrong place. anyone know a way to see the whole name without guessing?
