Ok, in summary, my handheld GPS is a 1992 Garmin 12. Those of you with it or one or one of its sucessors will know how much of a pain it is to add a load of waypoints.
I hada look at the Garmin waypoint manager, but needless to say as my receiver is so old, it isn't on the list of compaltible machines, as it only lists the current & immediately old units it talks to...... whether this is down to the Garmin sales policy or electrical incompatibility I don't know.
The simple question - anyone know if it will talk to a GPS12? If not, is there a waypoint manager that will? Ideally I just want a backup that I don't need to spend another week
wearing out the up / down buttons while typing in 50 odd emergency use waypoints!
And to pre-empt the inevitable "why don't you get a new receiver" questions, it takes a bucket of AA's and will last the best part of 24 hrs on it's own power, and I find it more ergonomic than a '72 to hold if out on the hills
