Where was I?

OK, the BAL leveler is pretty cool, but then I saw this Onix 400 advertisement today. It is a Bushnell GPS navigation system with real-time satellite download of weather forecasts and radar for the location of the device. The frosting on the cake is that it is an XM Satellite radio receiver! I listen to XM radio about sixteen hours a day (usually channel 26), so the idea of having one of these on a trip sounds like a must-have compulsion. It has a 3.5" color screen and it can store up to 1,000 waypoints, 20 trails, 20 routes, topographical maps... Too cool! Unfortunately, it hasn't been released yet, but should be out by the end of the summer.

After checking this out in person, it doesn't look like the highway navigation is what I'd like for camping. Oh well.
