Me too!!!!!!!!  There appears to be a "testicular ascendancy" in the
official launch of the new Atlas.

Which reminds me, I appear to have lost your previous posting in which you
pointed out the absurdity of the reading I got from my Magellan 2000XL GPS
toy.  I seem to recall that you mentioned changing some setting or other -

a hint as to where I go to change the setting.

Is this Simon Bennett's?  Of Melbourne?

Fay and I have the Redcliffe Peninsula "quartered" in preperation.  I've
also included a productive site just outside the political boundaries BUT
work on the theory that birds do not recognise that to cross north of South
Coman Road is to leave the Peninsula and enter Caboolture Shire.
