    Hi hcaver,
    I don't know which canyon you're entering, but most canyons are narrow with high walls. Therefore, the chance of the GPS seeing sufficient satellites is about zero {and this is with the...

    Hi sharkcaver,
    I only use multiple calibration points on paper maps that I have scanned and zipped. Otherwise, two point calibration is fine.

    Hi Nicko,
    I'm sorry, but you seem to have made your decision on a "one point, one time" test. :clap I must admit that I expected more of you than that.

    Hi asp,
    I think that your Garmin topo LICENCE is tied to a single unit and cannot be used on another GPS.

    Hi Nicko,
    No mention of TwoNav anywhere in my post. ;)

    What I was saying is that OziExplorer for Android is not a full version of OziExplorer.

    Why are you stuffing around with 2Nav?

    The only hesitation I would have in using a laptop in this application is the HDD. Will it be able to withstand heavy seas? Given a choice, I would use a SSD.
