Just kidding...I think.
Just learned that Cortez was sponsored by Garmin...
Yeah, like asking for directions will get anything other than, "Derecho, derecho!"
BTW, Neil Youngs doing the new Garmin jingle.
Nobody likes to admit that they really don't know the way to the next town, even if it's only 10 clics away.
Real Riders carry a sextant....
Works only OK downtown Chihuahua.
I forgot to whip it out.
I'll do that route again, though, without missing that last exit/bridge. We moved pretty quick along that canal/river for a couple of miles.
That's my story.....for now, anyway...
ok, I'm also searching for a good gps to attach to my 640 ADV, and found this... thing... here in mexico...
...this thing claims to use maps of mexico compatible with other devices, developed by this people
...any comment about this could help a lot...
Anyone got tracks/waypoints for the quest ,for mexico/baja/and futher south?
FWIW, I've used my E-Map in Baja. It only had the standard base map (Yeah, Cataviña was ~ 20 miles off) but, it gave the major roads, highways and towns.
Ditto in Oaxaca and in Belize. Interestingly, while some towns were not included often there were archeological or historical sites included.
As someone mentioned, a paper map is always a valuable resource.
The Guia Roja is excellent.
Carl in Bethesda
Really nice stuff and it is getting good reviews. However I have a Magellan 500 eXplorist ..... anything similar around for that?
There is an excellent set of maps from Memory-Map, topographic maps with the beauty of high resolution satellite images. These run on MemoryMap software on PPC. I have found them quite accurate.
..and an artifical horizon.
Bicimapas has them for you. I have 'em for Baja, in full topo relief, and they look great. In preparation for a trip this coming March, I have entered a lot of routes/points. My entries (from other sources) always perfectly match the mapping from Bicimapas, telling me that Alberto's work is accurate.
...think outside the box
I'd say it depends on where and what you're riding and what you're looking for.
I say that because some of the stuff we rode last time couldn't have been found without local knowledge or a good GPS. And with the desire to make every trip count in quality trails and semi-known mileage I now see a need that I hadn't considered.
The kicker was finding a couple GPS'd single track trails that we'd have never found without it.
Like I said quality.
As for most other riding. Paper friggin rocks!
