Hi Guys I've just been given a Garmin ETrex Venture as a going away present.
It appears to be a GPS compass! with 1Mgb of memory. Anyone any comments?

Hi Sid

Sounds like you are about ready to set off to Oz. You can always try your new GPS on the way out. You can pick up the satellites by holding the GPS at the window. Reminds me of the time the captain came over the PA to say we were flying at 36,000 ft. Hostess overheard my comment:

"Wrong 35,868ft"

What did impress me with the GPS was identifying towns in the distance and then noting that they were 60 odd km away.
