Too, as an aside, there had been an earlier remark about the battery life to units like this Nuvi 1300 and the viability as a hand held GPS device just walking about and the reality there is a time issue. There is....but here is a trick I'm learned that's working just fine: It's a battery back up/charger for the device. The charger runs off of 4 AA batteries. I can't report how long the back up supply lasted as it never went out on me! Here is one version of one:
I will say that having that back up device in my backpack with plenty of AA batteries helped me to walk more safely. (Yes, I know it's almost impossible to get lost in Amsterdam as all trams end up back at CS......but I was in ummmmm......some other types of neighborhood.)
