Topic - Digital navigation for the perplexed

colinakmc - on 17 Dec 2012
Right. So after 30 odd years of map & compass I've just got a Garmin Etrex 10 as a birthday pressie, I think I can work out how to get it to tell me where I've just been so that I can walk back there. However it seems there're ways to program it with map references, or draw routes on digital maps on your computer, then load said map onto the gadget so enabling you to replicate your drawn route on the ground.

Thing is, what mapping is best, without spending a fortune on it? and will the Garmin software work with any mapping or only with the Garmin maps which come in funny scales? And where do you start?
