    Nice find, if you are in Europe

    I looked at the UK sites that list it and the Medion German site (Medion is a Germanic company) and located brochures and specifications but no detail info on the following: How many waypoints, routes or tracks you can have, if the battery is built-in or not (which I think it is) and if so, if the internal battery fails what happens for replacement? If you click on the English language option it takes you to the UK site but it doesn't list the GPS.

    It has 8GB internal memory, and if the maps I supply is anything to go by (19GB) there is a limitation to what maps can be placed on it. The fact it doesn't state if the maps are in a proprietry format makes it difficult to assess it's usefullness in the Australian market. OSM maps installed is great but can you install updates etc?

    The Magellan eXplorist 110 has a great base map on it, equivalent to OSM, but you cannot update or upgrade it.

    I think the price reflects the lack of versatility and low specifications. Would like to know if it is sunlight readable. The Medion has no decent accessories for any use other than hiking. A French site details what is good for and seems even geocaching capability is limited.

    Don't assume you can put TwoNav or Ozie onto it as then the buttons cannot be used and may not be compatible as the WinCE is inbedded.

    For 159 Euros (AU$220), I think I would stick with a Garmin such as the Dakota 10, eTrex 20 or even the Dakota 20.

    Maybe this is the start of better GPS from Medion.

    As this is not in Australia I have shifted the thread to Overseas GPS.

    Both of these links are to the Medion S3857 not the S3867. They have very different specs.

    BTW I read somewhere that someone put a map on a Magellan eXplorist GC. I wouldn't mind betting that you can do a bit with the Magellan eXplorist 110 if you could be bothered.
