So I've been looking for a new GPS to replace my Magellan Explorist 500 and its frustrating user interface for some time now. I've been reading over the threads on this board and a few others and decided on either the DeLorme PN60 or the Garmin Oregon 550.So I headed down to my local REI with a pile of xmas gift cards and my annual dividend to compare the units side by side and I was kind of disappointed by the PN60's small screen and slow operation and long acquisition time(might have been caused by proximity to the building or operator error..). The salesperson encouraged me to look into the GPSmap 62st they had but it seemed to be a bit bulky and I was worried about the possibility of the antenna snagging on things when mounted on my bike.
So I ended up buying the Oregon 550t and so far it seems to be a lot better and easier to use than my magellan is but I wanted to ask the GPS Gurus here if I am losing any functionality other than the better antenna by choosing the oregon over the GPSmap 62 or PN60?
And what rescources are out there other than topofusion and Garmin Connect?
oh and I forgot to mention I will be using the GPS mostly for mtn biking/hiking but also for kayaking/boating, geocaching and for navigation on my motorcycles.
Thanks in advance for any advice offered
