Garmin GPSMAP 5212

Posted in Garmin,GPS,Marine by Paul Patterson on February 14th, 2007

Garmin GPSMAP 5212The GPSMAP 5212 is the flagship model in Garmin’s new GPSMAP 5000 Series of multifunction displays designed for marine use.

The 5212 features a large, waterproof 12.1-inch diagonal XGA touchscreen display (1024 x 768 pixels). Navigating the 5212 is accomplished through “virtual buttons” that change depending on the function and therefore eliminates the need for “hard” buttons, a valuable space saver on smaller helms.

The GPSMAP 5212 comes pre-loaded with detailed U.S. coastal charts – including Alaska, Hawaii and the Bahamas. The optional BlueChart g2 Vision SD data card provides high-resolution aerial reference photos to aid you in navigating harbors and channels or locating marinas, fuel stops or restaurants.

All of the 5000 series units employ the capabilities of the Garmin Marine Network, a system that combines GPS, radar, sonar, XM WX Satellite Weather, and other data.

The GPSMAP 5212 has a suggested …

Posted in Garmin,GPS by Paul Patterson on January 25th, 2007

Garmin with GolfLogix Enters GPS Golf MarketGolf is a game of distance and direction, so it’s no surprise that handheld GPS devices represent one of the fastest growing products in the golf business. Also helping this burgeoning market is the recent USGA and R&A rulings that sanction the use of distance measuring devices for golf. The ruling states that GPS-based systems and laser rangefinders are allowable.

To take advantage of this tremendous growth area, Garmin and GolfLogix have partnered on a new GPS device designed specifically for golfers. The partnership puts GolfLogix’s proprietary golf software on Garmin’s popular eTrex line of GPS receivers. The new device may even help the most hapless hacks squeeze a few strokes from their game.

The GolfLogix software gives you exact distances to hazards and the hole to help you select the correct club. Distances can be found …

Find Your Destination With Garmin eTrex Legend Cx

Posted in Garmin,GPS by Paul Patterson on August 26th, 2006

Garmin eTrex LegendI purchased the Garmin eTrex Legend Cx GPS a few weeks ago for some trips I have planned this summer. It has everything I wanted in a GPS; it has a color screen, small footprint, light, easy to use, and most importantly, it tells me where I need to go. I planned on using this device specifically for hiking and bicycle touring but it works really well for navigation in the car too. Here is a rundown on some of the main features:

256-color, sunlight-readable TFT display (176 x 220 resolution) with adjustable brightness level.
MicroSD card slot for storing MapSource data. Mine came with a 64mb card.

Mini-USB port for map uploads and downloads.
Turn-by-turn directions with alert tones (when navigating on streets).
