1. A car accessories firm in Adelaide is flogging Magellan 300 GPS
units (the base unit recommended for Atlassing) for $265. This compares
with $299 from Birds Australia, although the Birds Australia price includes
a useful in-car "charger".
2. I would like to suggest that, when available and where relevant,
GPS references be included with bird sightings. Such references can
often be useful, e.g. I recently found the beautiful Red-eared firetail
at Wungong, WA at the GPS location recommended in Frank O'Connor's excellent
web page (Thanks Frank). Wungong is a relative big area with
a number of tracks. Knowing the GPS reference we were after allowed
us to negotiate the right track and undoubtedly saved us considerable valuable
time. Once we got to the recommended GPS reference we easily found
the firetails, a lifer for me!!
3. I recently took my Magellan 300 to Brasil (near Rio) where it did not work...would not even pick up one satellite. Would be interested if anyone knows why.
