Looking for a used Garmin for my trike
« on: January 30, 2015, 12:57:43 am »
Hi, my name is Dave and I'm new to the forums. I got a new trike last year and I am looking for a used Garmin for it. The reason I want to go used because I don't have a lot of money and I'm disabled. Let me know if anyone can help!!

If you plan on using maps to design your own routes, when you buy a used unit, be sure to get the maps too.  Garmin ties all the mapping software to the unit it was originally loaded onto.  In other words, if you do not get the maps that are "joined" to the unit, you will have to pay $100 for a new mapping set.

If you are computer handy, you can also get free to low-cost public software maps but I am not handy so know little about them.

An older Garmin Vista HCx is a good starter unit.

Welcome to touring!
Happy trails and may the wind be at your back!
