Can anyone recommend a GPS
Preferably shock and water proof
probably not what you were expecting, but being the cheapskate that i am, i just use a samsung tablet with gps and google maps and a ziploc bag. only for when we're biking into the boonies. more for my amusement really, never really gotten lost enough to need it.
speaking of getting lost, travel expo is on NOW, got us some cheap tickets to indochina!
Whatrandr1979 says is what most are doing.
I got use to the gps and it is what I prefer.
I use a garmin and it works where there is no cell reception.
In gps garmin is the best imo
Have used tom tom and magellian.....did not like them both.
never used one irl but i am familiar with a garmin, at least the version that comes with ms flight sim. garmin seems to be the de facto standard but i am pretty sure there is a chinese clone out there that works just as well for a fraction of a price.
I have a Garmin Zumo that I had on my Goldwing. They are pricey. It has sat radio on it and integrates with the mc radio.
Garmin Nuvi 50LM or 55LM. I've had good reliable service out of the entry level Garmin machines. Lifetime map updates and not real expensive. Maps are updated about 4 times per year. Does everything I need in a GPS. I recommend adding an extra micro SD memory card so you can download all of the map info during updates. Not going to work for you if you have to have a waterproof device though.
Having owned a few brands of GPS, Garmin is the best.
garmin motorcycle gps's like the Zumo 660
Thanks guys, looks like everybody is using garmin
i was thinking of attaching it to my handlebars but then I decided it could be safer in my pocket/bag
Maybe waterproof wont be a requirement
Yan din ginagamit ko ngayon
I'm from Laguna and i've explored and ate every native delicacy in batangas, cavite and most of quezon na
Now, i looking at places a bit farther north and south
I usually avoid the highways din
Bisikleta din ako dati , now using a motorcycle to explore
Looking at bicol or baler or both during summer
IIRC there is little OEM map-support here in the Philippines for Garmin GPS devices. I've used two units (both for cars) for 4 and 3 years respectively, and map-support rests on online Filipino crowdsourcing. You have to physically download maps on the regular. Garmins are great nav tools.
Can't seem to get the mount suction-cups to stay stuck though, lol.
The don't come loose while in transit, but every morning....grrr.
kaya pa naman ako kukuha akala ko mas simple yung garmin
Heh. It's not that hard/complicated, and the big plus
to Garmins is they are built fairly-tough. Online forums
offer PH map updates for free d/l.
I like randr's solution, though:
GPS-apped tablet or smartphone in a w/p bag.
I use a Garmin 62S. I ride dirt bikes and this thing has been put through the wringer. Only thing I wish it had was a little bigger screen, but Garmin is well supported and you can download their free "Basecamp" program for loading, creating and editing tracks.
darn great handling even for motorcycle noobs like me
surprisingly inexpensive and lalo magmumura next year pag tax free na between the ASEAN
So these GPS know the one way streets in Manila too?
this might help.
