Got my new Magellin Sport Trac Pro in today! Can't wait to get out and play with it.
Hmmm I can see Justin programing in way points so he can find his way back to his door. Actually until yesterday you would have needed it in my backyard with as tall as the grass was. Had to cut the grass first sweep with the mower deck at 45degrees.JustinRuby03 said:I love it so far... of course I just walked around my yard
when you hook it up to your laptop (assuming via serial port) does it get power from the computer or run on batteries?uhdinator said:garmin Etrex vista has 24mb ram. You can get topo or street maps. I also have delorme topo quad program and SAT 3d imagery as well. With laptop and a wing man (or set it in the empty wingman seat) I can view my position on the laptop. I can upload my tracks of unmapped trails into either program and print or save to dump back into the GPS for future use.
As for the flimsy mount mine is mounted on the left side dash and I can position it so the rubber power plug for the 12volt adapter on the back is resting against the windshield and keeps it from bouncing so much. I use the accessory outlet so If I stop and shut off the jeep it still has power to the GPS. I use an inverter from Staples with regular 110 ac plugs for the laptop or to power a campsite light or whatever else you might need.
