Let's hope it is more reliable than a Garmin

As much as I love my Garmin Dakota 20, I'm now on my third. Customer support is all well and good but twice I've turned mine on to find that it has either forgotten everything (all built-in maps, tracks, waypoints, the lot) or won't even boot. Good job I wasn't camping in the middle of nowhere.

Remember kids, take a map with you. Technology is all well and good in the living room, but once outside it is a different matter.
