Magellan SporTrak GPS ?

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking at GPS's and boy it's confusing.
One of my buddies has a SporTrak Map and really likes it. I've kind of narrowed it down to the SporTrak Map or the SporTrak Pro. The Pro has 4x the memory for maps and is $40 more. Any imput that could help me from buying something I'm going to regret, would greatly be appreciated.

I had the same dilema last year at this time. I was told by a buddy of mine to buy the sport trak pro. I was glad I did. First of all, by narrowing it down to those two models, you've done well. They are easy to use and pretty fool proof. Second of all, you just never know when you might need the extra memory. . . Good luck!

I bought a StorTrak Pro this past spring and I love it. It is easy to use both manually and using computer software, and seems to be quite accurate. I have used it for fishing, car trips, and GeoCaching.

Only two things have disappointed me. One was the mail in rebate that I had great difficulty in obtaining and the second is the retaining clip on the screw for the battery comparment broke.

I tipped my canoe over this summer and it got soaked. It floated as advertised and got just a tiny bit of moisture in it but it dryed out and continues to work fine.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
