Hello from the Delaware colony!

Post by DougJustDoug »

Rode for 40+ years with Analog Positioning System (maps), then tried cell phone with off-line mapping for a few years, but now decided to try my first stand-alone m/c GPS. The XT may have more capability than I need, but I got a good deal on one. I hope the XT brain trust will forgive any stupid questions a newbie may ask. :D

Welcome to the forum from a North Carolinian. All questions are welcome, none are stupid (although I keep "DOH!" in my vocabulary just to respond to the answers to my stupid ones). I have been riding for 50 years (counting the 8 during which I didn't have a bike) and, like you, have been done paper maps (still have a tank bag with the clear top pocket), cell phone (sucks when no cell signal), and now an XT. I think you will like the XT overall but it has more quirks than such a GPS should. Basecamp is worth learning if you want to create and control routes rather than just entering a destination in the GPS and letting it get you there.

Ride safe! See you on the forums!
