Looking for a GPS unit

going across europe up as far as norway and as far across as russia and then all the way back so i need all the maps. there are a few available on ebay with pre loaded europe maps and such like but im not really sure what im looking at

if anyone has a unit with maps they are wanting to sell that would be awesome, and im in uk too

was looking at a car unit too as im not too bothered about bike specific ones really

any replies would be most appreciated.

Go for a Garmin one, failing that a decent GPS unit that makes waypoints and read a map. I wouldn't trust anything like a TomTom in the middle of russia.....

varied responses

I'm sure the TomTom people would object but, it's true that if you're going to lock yourself into one of these proprietory GPS 'systems' my first choice would be (is) Garmin. An Etrex Vista to be precise.

Me too

If Runner's V is sold I have one too, but only with the worldmap. I can provide an 'unofficial' version of the European maps mind you.

Once Runner's is sold I will be getting rid of mine, either on eBay or here. Not sure how much, but as cheap as needs be ........

Gps V

Im off to sunny Syria tomorrow so in practical terms the GPS V is not going anywhere til I get back at the end of August. But it will be for sale then. Im looking for about £100 for it (which seems to be what they go for on eBlag) but open to offers.
