Coylumbridge to Linn of Dee : transport back ? by Richard Spencer
I think that most people use one of those invaluable attachments - "the wife"! The return by road is well on a hundred miles (whether you go via Pitlochry or via Tomintoul)!

Memory Map Categories by Paul Saunders
Does anyone know how to change waypoints, tracks etc. to a different category in bulk? When working with hundreds or even thousands of waypoints it's a real pain to have to change them one at a time. For example, if I wanted to import a trig point file I'd want them all assigned to a Trig...

BBC iPlayer now High Def by Simon[_3_]
The BBC have just enabled their iPlayer to play back BBC HD content. A great move. You need to have a 3.5meg broadband connection at least to stream the programmes otherwise you can download them. In reality the quality isn't truly mind blowing as full high bitrate 1080 HD and appears to be...

Garmin 60 Csx fault? by Jhimmy
Yesterday, I went to the Cheviots with my Mountain bike. I reset the GPS (Garmin 60 Csx) at the start of the pedal (and push uphill). I used the waypoints a few times and saw the trip page updating. So, everything was looking exactly as it had done a hundred times before. 6hr 50 mins later I...

A varied 4-day backpack in the NE of Arran including superb glens, the wild and deserted Loch Tanna, a section of the Isle of Arran Coastal Way and finally Goatfell with its excellent view of the nearby rugged mountains.
