Grampian - Tayside Glens 27th March

Postby IanH » Sun Mar 06, 2011 1:19 pm

Run to a Tayside Glen (great to see any Taysiders or others too), possibly Glen Clova for a spot of lunch (depending on numbers and hotel capacity). A bit of Coast or a flee up the Slug in either direction.

Sign up soon on the events page to secure your place.

I've plotted the route onto OS 1:50k maps but it's affa difficult when the maps don't have the A90 dual carriageway! If we disappear, we will be investigating underpasses and flyovers beside the A90 :lol:

I'll be trying out a new SatNav which will hopefully have the route loaded. It won't be the Garmin I bought today which is going back tomorrow as despite the protestations of the lad in the shop and the Halfords feature comparison sheet you can only load a single point from Google Maps which is feck all use really. The interweb suggests I should be able to achieve this functionality with a TomTom product....

Mmmm, I thought you were using a new kind of sat nav! ME :shock:

Anyway, I have a super TomTom (TamTam when in Doric mode) but you can only send a destination thing from google maps to the hooked up tomtom. I tried last night so if i just put in directions from here to there then I can send the route to tomtam but when I start adding deviations it does not like it. If you know how it works let me know. By the way, have a peek at tomtom's website and you can pick up an older version for much cheaper. I have the Go Live 550 which is great. I bought it from Amazon a few months back but it costs much less now.

Yes that's one option, we can have 3 sat navs and a map and still get lost :lol:

Amazon's great but I won't get it tomorrow :D

That is true on both counts. We might be ok if we stay clear of the Kemnay Triangle!

If you need it for Sunday then borrow mine (well you'll see it anyway). I was going to try and plot the route into Tyre then send it to the tomtom but I'm still pretty clueless on how to do that. :?
