I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

You asking or telling.
Perhaps a few words on where you want to go might help. A heading like that tells readers absolutely nothing and maybe thats what they will reply with

On road Tomtom
Off road ??????

Hi Bill


I love the HN7 and running Ozi, you can add any of your favourite maps.

They are ready to run, straight out of the box and dead easy to use.



Cheers

What type? Mobile, to walk around with, or actually mounted in either the car's dash or on a frame?

I don't like stuff simply stuck to the windscreen for safety's sake. It can take your head off in a prang.

Hi Bill

Thanks for the response. It was re4ally meant to give us an idea of whare you are looking and what type.

I can't help you with any suggestions down that track. Excuse the pun. We believe that they are not the safest way of doing things. My son was a rally driver until he got hit by a timer/clock thingumy flying off the frame on the passengers side dash in a simple roll over. But please I am not condemning fully that idea. Your choice.

Ours is mounted in the dash and replaces the car's original double din radio and sound, entertainment, bluetooth and rear video system etc etc.

Another one of those " I can't be stuffed spending 30 seconds defining what I want, so you can collectively spend hours second guessing" thread.

I suggest ignoring the thread unless the OP can be bothered defining what he really wants.

Look at similar threads in the past. Dozens of thoughtful posts, with some people investing 15 mins or more on thoughtful answers which attempt to guess the solution, only to find that the OP didn't fully explain what they want and the time was wasted.

Oh and 9 times out of 10 the OP throws these out there, starts a flurry of responses, then the OP is never heard from again.

...And if the OP REALLY wanted to invest some time in the subject, search will reveal hundreds of similar requests and hours of reading with multiple valuable responses.

And if Bill is new to forums, as we all were once, he will quietly disappear now that you have insulted him. I wouldn't blame him either. This is also directed at those who like your unkind response BB. Sorry guys but you could have done it in a more polite and social way.

Blue for boys and pink for girls. Well, that's how it used to be.

Are you confused?

Are we still allowed to say "boys" or "girls" ? Never know which part of society you're likely to upset.

G'day Bill

Hema HN7 would be a good place to go. Hema supply their entire map catalogue, and a version of Oziexplorer.

The navigator section is also very useful, and pre-loaded with Camps Australia, as well as POI and required info such as Police, Medical, Shopping, Fuel and more importantly, coffee shops.

It's not cheap, but if it does what you want, it's not expensive either.

The generic GPS units that are navigator only, altho these days in some cases having the tracks listed, have no other information that is useful when fighting off drop bears, and don't give tou the option of pre planning your trips.

Cheers
Laurie

It's the wrong question however brief.

If you start with 'what map will tell me x, y and z?' you might avoid wasting your money.
