Re: Looking for a GPS

Thanks Bob,

Do you have a GPS unit that records the points and then upload them into this software?

How's the STW?

You can install those maps under basecamp on your unit. I have been using all the colorado topo2011, wyoming, and utah maps. There are lots of free maps out there. Also, you can import custom maps on those systems (like a forest service road map).

You’re so lucky in the USA , there is hardly any maps for where I Hunt in Australia.

I haven't tried the software yet. I just read about it a cpl weeks ago. It looks interesting.

STW is under a minute at 200 yards and waiting for me to take it out to 600. It'll be heading to WY for Antelope and Cow Elk in a cpl weeks.
