Folks, got my Forerunner charged
and am now using it for my XC Ski training in the Gatineau parc. Works great,
very accurate, gives me my speed and
distance when I want it.
distances on Gatineau topo map and its bang on. I like the history memory feature
when I get home to log my sessions in my journal.
just have to keep my jacket cuff pulled over the unit so as to keep it warm as
we have had some cccccold temps here recently, -27'c and wind chill of -38'c,
brrrrr. Thanks for a great service and a reliable product."

I forgot to get the photo of the GPS at the camel market, but on the way back,
I thought about a better venue.
it was very sunny and bright, so there is a reflection in the GPS display, but
I managed to get one where you can zoom in on the display to see the latitude
and longitude on the display in the "Satellite" window. As for the caption.I think
the photos will speak for themselves! "
[Wayne, we're looking forward to a camel market pic!]

for finished installation
LOVE my StreetPilot III. I have no sense of direction, just ask my husband, so
I use it daily! Along with being a GPS fanatic I am also a "let's try it because
God never loved a coward" kinda of gal so I did some wiring and cutting all by
myself to install it in my truck. In the consol of my truck it has a secondary
power thingy, technical term, on the passenger side. So after I figured out how
to get to the wires and a quick trip to Canadian Tire to pick up a splicing unit
I was off and running. I stopped by my favorite store, GPS Central, to pick up
a RAM Mount which was a perfect
fit! With more courage then knowledge and alot of "choice words" I managed to
hooked up my StreetPilot and hide all the wires. Then came the actual cutting
of the plastic piece in my truck. I needed to call Ford before the first cut was
made to find out how much this would cost if it ended up a mistake. Feeling confident
I could afford the repairs away I went with a borrowed Dremel power tool, which
I now love as well. Certainly it's not a professional install but I am proud to
say it's 100% done by me. My StreetPilot came in handy when my sister and I went
on our just the girls trip. We went along I95 to New York, Boston and then to
Atlantic Canada. Each step of the way we were guided with precision through the
streets of New York and Prince Edward Island alike. Never once did my StreetPilot
disappoint. Thanks Garmin for a great product! "
have attached pictures of the installation on my latest motorcycle: a Harley Davidson
SuperGlide. Looking at your web site tonight,
just learned that the eMap is now discontinued
so the pictures may not be much use to use but it still shows how a
RAM mount can look. Probably
good information for you to send to other customers if they wonder how it is going
to look once they are done with their installation. I guess time has come to upgrade
my eMap to something else. : )"
