I also wish that on motorcycle mode they had an odometer that you could + or - if you were using roll charts.

I created this thread on the subject. Not holding my breath for an answer, but you just never know.
Good luck with that. I've sent them more then one e-mail regarding the 50 point limit and they NEVER respond at all.

We live in hope. I'd be very interested to find out why there's that limit. If there really is a reason for it, why not tell us?

Perhaps the question I asked was placed in the wrong forum so I created a new question in the Basecamp forum.

Honestly, I think the reason is they want you to buy multiple GPS's. Of course, they don't want to tell us that.

I think so too, but that's not going to stop me from trying to change their mind on it.

Yeah, but there doesn't seem to be one without these dopey limits.

Each model has its own set of dopey limits.

I'm just hoping that if we keep bombarding them with ideas and feature requests for current models, that they will gradually make some improvements. The 350LM is their newest moto GPS, so I am hoping for some ongoing development. If it would allow more points in a route, show tracks, and allow me to kill some or all of the data fields displayed on the map, it would be damn near perfect. I know their track record is not great, but I will still try.

Here is the link to ask for something: http://www8.garmin.com/contactUs/ideas/#container-form

$100 rebate on 350LM. http://garmin.blogs.com/promotions/2...in-rebate.html

If you are a pure street rider, and don't need to be able to see tracks other than the one you just rode over, this is not a bad deal.

Are rebates common sales strategy at Garmin?

GPS prices seem to be expensive when compared to say a smart phone, considering a smart phone's technology and capability, including navigation.

What is in the cost of a GPS? Or perhaps the questions should be what is in the price of a GPS?

I've seen them before. Even took advantage of one when I bought my StreetPilot 2720.
