    I am surprised...nothing under this category....nobody using GPS ? Is that because the routes provided have no easy GPS download ?

    or this section has just snuck in and we didn't know it existed.

    what we need are some gps bargains......

    I got my Geko 301 from the US for £25; that was a bargain

    Like Peter I do not need any help (at the mo....gulp, fate tempted); but it might be useful to share a few snippets....although most of what I am into is covered by the Google Earth Community.

    It has sneaked in, but it's just in preparation for something else

    Err... yes; another Forum Topic that's spontaneously appeared without any fanfare. Well done to you for discovering it...

    You might try a forum search for GPS; lots of past discussion. I'd use google and a site-specific search.

    I think maybe if the topic were expanded to 'GPS/Mapping Software Etc' it might have a broader appeal?

    I'd guess it's something to do with the new Routes section the site's been promising for a while.... wasn't it trumpeted at The Outdoors Show back in March - some hook-up with one of the gps mapping providers iirc to bring us an expanded routes section and downloadable route files etc.?

    Perhaps it's imminent?!!

    I wonder which company they are going to do the downloadable files for?

    I have an old Garmin etrex for use, never upload a route to it but have it for the just in case scenario as it was very cheap. Sits in the bag and never comes out - now thats tempting fate

    Hi all,

    Yes, Matt is right, this is to do with the new routes system. It's live now (beta) and took a lot more work than we though it would. Would be pleased to get any feedback.

    All the best

    I cant be arsed with gps routes, tried it once. as simon chaplin says, i too have an olde trek, though its never gone in my pack in the last18 months. i get fed up looking at techno gadgets all day at work so a map and compass is all i want when out and about.

    Try a search - there are many discussions - they are elsewhere on the site though.
