only a thousand threads!

must be a subject no-one is interested in? Don't most have 8375268892256789822278845103?

Hi guys,
I run oziexplorer on an old IBM Thinkpad. Brian at gpsoz has mail order. Download maps using Mapgrabber which was written by Jackaroo on the gpsaustralia forum group. These boys have all the answers when it comes to using oziexplorer, gps and maps. Truckster Hardly Normal is retailing refurbished IBM laptops for around $700. Cheaper than I bought mine off ebay and with some warranty.

'on yer Uppy! Great thing about,in my case,in your case GPS/maps/treks etc,can't use them much in prison (read house/home) so we find lots of excuses to go bush..By the look of your pic,you do that anyway.Ripper! I have a Pro/SLR by Kodak which links directly to the GPS so we can identify where pix are taken..We had a couple of s/hand Toshiba Satelite lappies,solid,chunky.Hurt me to turf them out after years of top service,but the software jus got too 'heavy" for them.You have a magic rig with the Nissan.We had 7 years of them.Never laid a spanner on them.But we did wipe out a (black)weaner cow at 100+++ on the range near Injune,Qld one nite.Had to use a snatch strap & a "real" guide post to pull alum bull bar off tyre to get steering.Have fun..RockyOne
