How often do you use it?

I'll only use it 1-2 times a week. I used to use it everyday, but got sick of taking it out and hooking it up with it being so cold out.

So, basically any trips or going into areas I am not familiar with at all. No need to have it on while going to work and home.

I use my hand held Garmin 60Cs exclusively for Geocaching. The GPS that is built in to my jeep is more of a novelty than anything else.

Can't say that I use it everyday but i use it at least 4 days a week.

I use a program called Mapopolis for my Pocket PC based PDA along with a Bluetooth GPS Receiver. Mapopolis is for on-road navigation, I am currently looking for a Pocket PC program for off-road navigation using waypoints.

I use mine quite a bit, but it varies greatly. For a long time I was using it every day. Lately I haven't done much other than work and home so I haven't been using it much. Overall I probably average right in the middle of that...so 3-4 times a week.

Hardly ever use it on the normal drives.
Use it whenever I go somewhere new.
Always use it off-road in jeep or ATV (gets me the front spot).
Use it most times on bike trips.

I have 25,000 miles on my Garmin e-trex. I used to use it every day.... then I bought a new speedometer. :tonka:

It was very handy navigating around Detroit though with the breadcrumb feature.
