Thanks in advance... :lol:
My GAWD you are SO on top of things. I just saw this thread and said to myself, "Mike -- go find your picture again..." then WHAM! Don't I get like royalties or sumptin'.....? :wink:GA Rainman said:Hey Blade - I posted the pic of your SPIII before you did....nah nah - Nah Nah - Boo Boo! :lol:
Yes, I'm going to have to agree with Eddie and Blade here. The SPIII is a great unit - I had one for two years. I loved that old thing and only sold it to pay for my new 2610. A couple of notes however that we've hashed and rehashed before, but probably not everyone has read. MAKE SURE that whatever unit you buy - you get a memory card with it and NOT a Microdrive. A Microdrive is essentially a miniature hard drive. They don't like shock or vibration. They may work for a while, but it WILL fail at some point due to the vibration of being on a bike.eddiecohen said:I now have a Garmin 2610. I believe the main advantage it has over the older Garmins is the touch-screen Windows-style menus, processor speed, and recalculation time. One of the problems that I saw with the StreetPilot III was that if you missed a turn, by the time it recalculated a route, sometimes you had already passed the newly calculated turn-0ff, thus another recalc, etc., so sometimes you had to stop and wait for it to recalc. Except for that, it's a good system.
I've never seen a GPS system that didn't display speed. (This is my third system.)
