I went with a Dell 9" Mini Laptop running Microsoft Streets and Trips 2009, why? screen size, and, the software has day/night mode. It too has has differant modes. Will generate a dot trail where you've been so you can go back. It has most (but not all) off road trails built in. It will track you even if no trail is noted, like I said it will produce a dot trail to return with.

I really like the screen size.....you can see it. It's nice to have 9" screen vesus a 1-2" size. It has many other functions like most hand helds do. Over 11 million points of interests. It also calculates speed, distance traveled, direction....everything.

And you can go to the Streets and Trips web site and use a free version to test. Costco sells it if I remember correctly under $75.00. I got mine off ebay $33.00 which include the GPS antenna and all cables you'd ever want.

Good luck and HAPPY TRAILS

My BB Curve with Google maps, works just as well as my Stepdads GPS in getting me to my destination minus all the yapping.

The street stuff might be handy, but not important to me.
But - all the ads for the Garmin 60cxs talk about preloaded maps available. But Garmin doesn't offer them can't find anyone else that does too.

Took lots of digging just to find the blank cards, and only 2MB blanks.

The ads from Garmin all talk about it - but no info - lies?
