I am new to GPS, which I intend to use in both North America and Europe. After comparing units at the CycleGadgets display at Lima, I settled on a Quest. I bought their Techmount and RAM cradle, but I was told to wait for the new Quest2. I did a bit of research and I am confused about the change in specs justifying the increase in price. Perhaps I should go for the first version as a bargain.
Quest: Owner installs accompanying North American MapSource CitySelect software; 128 mgs memory - 115 of which is "uploadable map storage" (or 256 mgs European version with Europe maps).
Quest2: Preinstalled North American MapSource CitySelect software; unknown memory which seems to be a state secret, except that the manual (which covers both models) says "Full map coverage" for the Quest2; "140 MB supplemental map storage is available for downloading map detail from other MapSource products (U.S. versions only)." I get the impression that the preinstalled North American software cannot be overwritten in the Quest 2.
Otherwise, the two models seem to be the same. But what does it all mean? (I have always been a map and compass guy.)
Help me please. Is the Quest2 worth it? Do I just go for the 256 mg in first version? And so on. Thanks.
(Look at page 51 of the manual).
