To Jay's excellent list of questions, I'd just like to add:
- Is there a reasonably-priced GPS integrated with contour map (as
opposed to street map) info, which would be useful for off-road
Ideally, such a system would be a light-weight integrated hand-held
unit, or a plug-in for the Palm Pilot or Windows CE PDA's, but the
storage capacity for contour info might require a CD-ROM (i.e., require
a notebook computer), unless plug-in cards with limited area info could
be used in a hand-held unit.
