NO But I would have liked the Employee discount when I bought mine LOL
I wish I would have had a GPS 30 years ago, Oh man I can't even imagine the places I would have been to by now.

You're making me jealous. My "old" Garmin 12XL doesn't do half as much, I'm sure!
Bruce, when you mention the four wheeler tracks, are you looking at a satellite photo on your new Garmin, like on Google earh? I think Bushnell has entered the GPS field with a unit does something like this as well.

what I do is, after I run the trails I come home and I can upload that track onto my computer, then I can see it on the garmin road map, or the Garmin Topo map or the garmin mapsource software has a "View In Google Earth" option as well... and Yes I can see my track on the GPS also but not the Google Earth view, I can only see that on the computer.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

No, not bad at all, BUT I shopped all over and the price was ranging
from $489. down to $305. and that's just for the GPS itself, So it did pay-off to shop around..

If some of you guys are going to shop for a GPS, you'll find them on Ebay, but be careeful. Many of these folks who sell new GPSs are not selling factory warranteed stuff. Check it our beforehand. Of course, if you want to take a chance, you might get a really low price. You just have to decide if it's worth it.
