Hi.
I'm new to GPS. I was hoping that someone would recommend a GPS system for me. I'll tell you what I would use it for. I'll be mainly using it
in Sweden (I'm from UK). I would use the GPS for mountain bike trails,
road map, hiking/mountain climbing, trips to islands by boat (there
are 100's of them), snowboarding and navigating from lake to lake
(there are hundreds of them too). I have had a look at a few GPS
handhelds such as the Garmin GPSMAP 60C and the Meridian Colour GPS.
The maps look good on the Garmin but I have not seen any for the
Magellan, and I have scoured the web for examples. I also like the idea of expandable memory too. Is 55mb enough?

Which one or other handhelds are the most appropriate/best.

Cheers for your help.

Ha funny... No matter how much memory they have, it is never enough.

Are you mostly after the ruggedness, the battery runtime, or the display capabilities? Have you already decided it should be a handheld, or would you also consider a Pocket PC or Palm?
