I think when folks start to discuss GPSs (or any other topic, for that matter) to a point where that traffic starts to monopolize the more generally positioned forums we have, we'll look at kicking them off into their own realm.
We're trying to keep the forum interface easy to figure out, without subforums and other kinds of potentially difficult to manage/navigate encumberances.
I hope that makes sense. We're trying to avoid the trap many forums fall into, which is having a gazillion subforums, most of which see very, very little activity.
