Yeah, man am I loosing sleep these days up all night playing with the flight simulator!
Other things I have noticed with the new one
Super fast sat aquisition!
Have never lost the sats yet
Great storage (haven't even got the extra card yet!)
Different levels of backlighting which helps reserve the batt life & doesn't always have to completely bright all the time. Nice to take a quick peak to ensure that you are still on the trail. This seemed helped tremendously a few weeks back when I was moving onto a water hole way before sunrise and I was walking right through a small herd of pronghorns. I was off course a few yards and was able to quickly check w/o scaring them off.
What do you do with those empty nylon feed bags or dog & cat food bags? Can you say recycle? I use them for target practice for the youngsters. Take your empty shopping bags, stuff them into an empty nylon feed bag. You can also use old clothing or rags, (but put them in the bottom so it doesnt get top heavy). When your bag is full, fold the top over, punch some holes into the top and zip tie the top shut. Paint, draw, paste, or have the kids decorate their new target. Set it out 10 or 20...
