I recently changed my old SatMap 10 to a Garmin Oregon 700. I bought it from a retail chain shop locally. What a mistake! Whilst struggling to make sense of the virtually non-existent instruction leaflet provided, I had recourse to the Internet, and came across a truly remarkable small independent retailer operating out of Rothbury Northumberland, called GPS Training, a subsidiary company of Shepherds Walks. They have a very helpful set of videos available on YouTube, which helped me through most of the problems I experienced, but more importantly sell at reasonable prices complete units with mapping of any type you want installed, backed up by a helpful advice line. They have dealt with every problem I fired at them, very quickly, professionally, and in simple to understand terms, important for an IT thick oldie like me! I thoroughly recommend them to all members.

Mike - We were considering a workshop got GPS devices. One for Satmap and the other for Garmin. In the end, we plumped for the First Aid and a workshop on leadership.
We can certainly consider for the future.

I will be at the AGM and happy to spend a couple of hours showing you Garmin. Been a Garmin owner for 10 years and on my third generation device. I also have full 1:25000 mapping for the UK, but paid significantly more than this deal :-(

It sounds I need someone like you to explain / demonstrate the basics of GPS to me. (I haven't got one, so you can assume complete ignorance on my part)

Are you coming to the AGM ?

Thanks Iain: useful link.

A tip which I learnt the hard way, by losing a micro SD card. When you put the card in place under the batteries, secure the little medal gate closed with a piece of tape: packaging tape or similar. It's very easy to open the gate by mistake and lose the card when you are changing batteries, especially when you are doing it on the trail by torchlight.
