    Why are topo maps a must? also, if you don't already know mate, learn to use a handheld compass before relying on an electronic one.

    I assumed most gos units come with a basic preloaded map with minimal detail? Yeah i realise that , its not a necessity just would be handy to have one inbuilt. Cheers

    Pre-installed maps are nice, but nothing to base a purchasing decision on. Here's a link to the free (open-source, not pirated) NZTopo map. Download and place it in the "Garmin" folder on the GARMIN gps you're going to buy. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ub5lqwhwvi...opo50.img?dl=1
