Garmin Colorado tracking error I've been following a Groundspeak thread on Colorado tracking errors for awhile now, but I was still surprised the other day on the trail when my Colorado 300 was tracking parallel to, but 400 feet away from my 60CSx. As soon as I noticed the error, I powered the Colorado off and back on, and it tracked true the rest of the ride. You can see above that the problem started soon after I left the trailhead (I was riding counter-clockwise). It's unknown what is causing this, but I'm betting it's the firmware for the chipset. For the record, I'm using chipset firmware version 2.6, along with Colorado beta firmware 2.51. To bring you up to speed on the Colorado, it's a very nice handheld, with a high resolution, albeit somewhat dim, display. If Garmin will fix the tracking error issue, and allow the display of multiple tracks, I should be able to recommend it as a GPS for hikers and perhaps bikers as well.

Mio Moov 200 review The Mio Moov 200 is the entry level model in Mio's new Moov series. The Mio Moov 200 has a 3.5” touch screen, comes with over 3.5 million points of interest (POIs), and has text-to-speech, so you'll get "turn left on Oak Street in 200 feet", rather than just "turn left in 200 feet." Stepping up to the Mio Moov 210 gets you a one-year live traffic subscription, delivered via the Traffic Message Channel (TMC). The 300 and 310 models offer the same features as the 200 and 210, albeit with a wider, 4.3” touch screen. The Moov product line has a completely new interface, thanks to Mio’s purchase of Navman. I won't repeat all the details of the interface here that I posted in my Mio Moov 310 review, but I highly recommend reading that post before you buy.
