Nothing to upgrade too ;o) I think the Quest is the best bike GPS out there.

Until I get old and need to mount a fishfinder GPS like the 276C.


Dat fish finder is just gonna smell snatch!

If at first you don't succeed, avoid skydiving.

Not to sound a bit daft but can the eTrex Vista/Legend run maps like your Quest ? That maybe something to look at (especially at my price range  :lol: )


Yip, with full routing aswell.
The only hassle with the eTrex range is memory.
8mb on the b/w legend, 24mb on the b/w Vista, and then the Legend Color and Vista Color.
BUT, with even 8mb you can load the whole T4A lite and have pretty good function out of it.
Example, the entire SA road maps from GARMAP 3.03 is about 59mb.
And then all the SA, Moz and Lesotho T4A pro are like 15mb.
The quest has 243mb
I load the entire country street maps. the whole gauteng topo maps and then all the T4A maps, and I get about 160mb.
Still got some to spare on the quest.

Wow that water looked seriously deep, think it was wise turning around unless Weshie packed a spare raft under his seat as well :D

Nope, I keep the raft in my Jacket, I,m not really as fat as it makes me look!

They was very, very close to a drowning, of the KLR and particularly in the turn, as there was a "crown" in the road once you were off that it was deeeeper!

It was getting deeper and scary  :shock: The bikes may have made it as my airbox was bone dry when I opened it up when I got back to dry ground. Problem with me is I don't like stuffing things up if it can be avoided, may have made it may have ruined a motor  :cry:
