I'm looking to buy a GPS that I can use for trails in Spain as I'm finding it very difficult to find any maps. Can anyone suggest a system that would be suitable? Thanks, Andy.

    Satmap - you can get a 1:25k map card for Spain for about £50
  • Nice one, thanks for the reply. I'm gonna check it out now!
  • Garmin Dakota, Garmin Oregon, MemoryMap....loads of great systems out there.

    For maps try openstreetmap.com. Free maps galore!
  • I asked this same question a while back and was also advised to download (free) the app for an iphone called motion-x.

  • I'm edging towards a Garmin setup and just had a look at the Openmtbmap site. It looks like it'd be really handy once you figure out how to use it and if it's compatible with a Mac etc, etc. Are these sites really as difficult to use as they look?

    Just download the gmapsupp.img file from the link below and copy it to a folder called GARMIN on a micro SD card and put it in your garmin.

  • Excellent, thanks for the info everyone. I'll be ordering a Garmin very soon.
  • I've got a Blackberry Bold, not sure about using that though cos I'm on a UK contract and the roaming data charges are scary.
