    Nothing formal, a small group with a few folks in the know. I'd be willing to host but there are probably better options. I was thinking too that we could turn this into an all day thing. Meet up, get some good info on using GPS and then put it all to practice on a ride. If we had a couple guys show up with laptops we could meet up at a state park or something, use a pavillion to hold 'class' and head out from there.

    I feel pretty comfortable using a GPS but I'm sure I'm not using it to it's full capability. This too would give everyone a good chance to see a lot of different units and allow for back to back comparisons, a chance to see different mounting options, etc.

    I have the new 60csx, don't have any batteries in it yet but I would show up just to see everyone elses toys. I'm like KV, I can use a gps but like most other things, I am sure I am not using it to it's fullest potential.

    Chattanooga would work good for me. I'm just up the road in Knoxville and got a new 276C last week. I'm sure I could learn a few things.

    Chattanooga would be great. There are quite a few TN guys in that area. I know Suppermotodd is in Chat.

    I would probably be up for something.... I know how to turn mine on, and would be glad to share my experiences in doing so. Past that, I am a big dummy.

    I'll show if I just happen to be home (25 miles from Chatt) at the time.

    Gots me a laptop with Verizon Wireless internet access and DeLorme GPS navigation software that I could bring, along with my too rarely used Etrex Vista.

    FYI, I'm planning to be home March 10 (aardvark's B-day :clap) through March 12.

    I gots to know where that is! I use GPS quite a bit in N. GA and design routes that use the most remote roads I can find. Currently running a Garmin Quest with mounts on two bikes. Use MapQuest and Terrain Navigator for most of my mapping.
