SnowRanger Ski Resort Maps for Garmin® and Magellan® GPS
|March Newsletter from Mountain Dynamics|
|It's been a very warm March in most of the West, but fresh snow has fallen in Park City, Whistler, and Telluride, and is in the forecast for Vail and many other areas today. There might only be a month or so of skiing left this year, but with the special offers below you can be sure to get the most out of your SnowRanger GPS ski resort maps all NEXT season too.|

*** Big Screen GPSes: the Magellan CrossoverGPS and the Garmin nüvi
Garmin and Magellan are introducing more and more "personal navigation devices" (PNDs) such as the nüvi and the CrossoverGPS. These PNDs feature large color screens and preloaded street maps with extensive "points of interest," and work well in or out of the car. Both series also work great with SnowRanger, and when the snow is gone they make great travel companions throughout the year.
The nüvis are available in a variety of sizes and models, but all feature a large bright color touch-sensitive screen and an SD card slot into which you can slide a SnowRanger map set. The nüvis are not waterproof or rated for use in low temperatures, so you'll want to keep yours in an inside pocket when you're skiing or snowboarding.
The CrossoverGPS is a little bulkier than the nüvis, but is waterproof and much more tolerant of the cold. A SnowRanger user recently spent a week skiing at Big Sky with a CrossoverGPS and liked the big bright screen, and found the 8 hour rated battery life to be realistic. The "Sport Guard" that it comes with-basically a rubber band around the edge of the unit-did not add much protection, but the unit was fairly rugged.
