Printout of Garmin Astro GPS Path
I received an email from ArtOC who just returned from a trip to Western Maryland. Art has a brand new Garmin Astro GPS he tried out for the first time. He was kind enough to send us the print out of his path. You guys may remember that I posted one from Tim Herring called, "Ever Seen the Path of a Gordon Setter on a GPS Unit?" (9/14/09). These GPS Units are amazing little tools to have and apparently, a lot of fun too! Thanks for sharing Art! I think I'm going to have to put one on Dan's wish list!
E-Mail From ArtOC :
Karen, I attached a download from the Astro as a JPG so you can handle it as a picture. I really love this device! I saw the dog tracks on your Blog and I was impressed. The more I use it the more I like it. I have never been to this area and only had a rough idea of where I was going. My goal was to find Turkey Ridge. I marked my truck (camp) then headed off into the woods. If I had checked this before I left home I would have been directed right to where I wanted to go. Nevertheless, I think its a great asset and I highly recommend it. I got a great price from Amazon on the unit and the topo map. I still haven't mastered all it can do but I'm getting better at it all the time.
