Default Garmin E-Trex 30

Here are some notes from playing with my ETrex 30 the last few weeks:

o The ram mount and cradle is very solid
o I didn't spring for the routable road maps so it's not great for navigation on the street.
o In the olympic national forest, the 25k topo maps had most of the FS roads
o working with the tiny screen plus the scale-based visibility of the FS roads makes it hard to navigate with if you have to go off the track you're following.
o the power connection is sometimes interrupted by vibration and the unit shuts down.
o There is no substitute for good paper topo maps

All said, not the best unit for a motorcycle, but it mostly works.
