OpenStreetMap

If you could create your own outdoor GPS...

...how should it look like and what features do you want?

Asked by Magellan Navigation. Maybe we should tell them, that we realy need a good competitor to Garmin with open support for OSM :)

One of the possible reason for potential users in the UK not taking to OSM is the current status for road completion? Take a look at the bottom of this list -> http://www.itoworld.com/product/data/osm_analysis/main . When it looks more like the top of the list, I'm sure more of the professional mapping bodies (and others) will make use of OSM.

Maybe, but service was (some years ago) a big problem. I owned a gps320; impossible to repair a broken display... so good luck!

Bad to hear, but hey let's make just a try. Maybe we (or Magellan itself?!?) fail, but maybe we get the support?
