GPS

We ordered a Garmin GPS60 unit yesterday evening. We had received some substantial funds from klik's grandmother, which we used for this purchase.

We intend to use the unit for Geocaching, but it is also usable to log a trip by bicycle (and perhaps car). The unit has a serial and USB connector, and using some open-source software/websites it is possible to generate a map with the locations where you've been.

Sounds like a lot of fun.
