They all seam to be over built and need a RAM mount. I used a Garmin eTrex 20 for the Paris to Dacre last year and I found the screen to be too small I struggled to figure out the direction of the arrow all day because I would have to pause to see it. I would like to be able to lay out some of my own routes this year so which ones do you guy's find the most user friendly?
The Montana is not too large. In fact I think it's perfect.



And you don't need a RAM mount with the Montana. You use the powered, lockable, $35 Garmin Rugged Mount.

You cant get Screech in Connecticut and I couldent find any listing of it in the US at all. If someone brings me a bottle to bring home and I will gladly pay cash, It will make a nice oddity on the shelf. It can go next to the bottle of smuggled Japonese absenth and the bottle of Romulan Ale. Yes I went to the Star Trek experience in Vegas durring Networkers one year. and yes, the comp[any paid for Romulan ale

Either way the Pyrat will be there so if someone brings Screech we can do a taste test. And another and another..

I've been Screeched in. There is nothing like it.

Mike is you've got room I think a bottle should make an appearance... although I think that maybe an LCBO might carry it.

Dont worry Tammy. We can not do this. Everybody knows you cant put cloth near one of Thanh's WRs. If we did this his bike would likely eat one of ours!

Hey Aaron, I don't think I've gone to a rally yet without a bottle to pass around-except for my own that is

This is what happened when we Screeched in my buddy. It took him a while to get the saying right so it put him a little over the limit lol.
