Virtual PC and MacGPS PRO

No, the programs don't talk to each other - unfortunately. They do pretty much the same thing, as far as I can tell. So it really doesn't make any sense to use both. The advantage of using Virtual PC is that I can use the maps installed on my GPS. I can't use those in MacGPS PRO. In MacGPS PRO I hav...

I should add that I in addition to Virtual PC I use MacGPS Pro, which is made for the Mac. MacGPS Pro works with Garmin and Magellan GPS receivers for transferring waypoints, routes and tracklogs. You can import (with automatic calibration) your nautical charts in NOS/GEO and BSB versions 1, 2, and ...

I use Virtual PC on a G3 iBook and a G4 desktop, and it works just fine. A bit slower than the real thing, but okay. The only reason i use Virtual PC is actually the Garmin software for my GPS. It can be a little tricky setting it all up to recognize your GPS in the beginning, but once you've figure...

paddling in norway

<r>I live and paddle on the north west coast of Norway, and would be more than happy to help if I can. As Nick says, you'll have to go north of Bergen if you want to see the typical Norwegian fjords. Sogn og Fjordane (with Sognefjorden, etc) and Møre og Romsdal (with the Geiranger Fjord, Runde, etc)...

argonaut

<t>I've paddled the Argonaut for a year, and I like it a lot. It is predictable, stable and forgiving. It tracks well, but turns quickly and easily with a bit of a lean. And it'll give you a dry ride even in large seas. I feel comfortable in it almost no matter what. <br/> <br/> Because of the volum...

thanks

Thanks Mike and Richard. I really appreciate it.

It sounds like it'll be worth the long drive to take a look at this one.

other options

<t>Thanks for the reply.<br/> <br/> I like the Nordkapp, but it seems to behave better with a little bit of weight... I am tall but quite skinny, and want something reasonably fast that I can enjoy for long day trips (without a load) in the open sea. That's what I do 90% of the time. <br/> <br/> I a...

Bahiya

<t>I am on the north west coast of Norway, and I'd actually have to travel to either Denmark, the UK or Germany to demo it. Norwegian dealers don't stock this kayak just yet.<br/> <br/> It looks like a boat I'd be interested in, as the Quest is too high volume for me. But since I have to travel far ...

Has anyone paddled the P&H Bahiya?

Has anyone paddled the P&H Bahiya? Opinions?

It looks like an interesting kayak, but I have to travel far to try one, and would first like to know if anyone has any hands on experience with it.

Thanks!
