    Topo GB are rubbish for on screen navigation, the contours are accurate but I can't tell the difference between roads, tracks and paths. Sometimes the path just stops.

    I'd go for the Garmin OS mapping, will be much more useful. Look here. Expensive, but OS mapping is. Wished I'd known OS mapping was coming to handhelds when I bought my Garmin 2 years ago. :evil:
    It's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission.

    I've bought a new bike....ouch - result
    Can I buy a new bike?...No - no result
  • Agree, the topo maps are rubbish. I got memory map of wales for the computer, which i can plan routes/walks and download them to my gps. Its easy to use, and you can even fly through the route in 3D!
