I think you can for that one, I have a plain Etrex and it works great, you can input all the coords from one of the glamis pages. Then I always mark camp.

Hardly ever have it on, but good to have with you incase something happens and you need to get back to someone.

I am saying, no matter what, you really do not need maps at the dunes, just all the coords of all the spots. Olds, Comp, store, pad3/4 whatever. you just enter the coords and name them, then you select "goto" and select Olds (or whatever) and follow the arrow as guide to get there. They also leave "tracks" so you can back track to find a buddy or a lost cooler! LOL

BTW, I run a red dome light in the rhino so I do not have to have the light on, on the GPS, saves the battery

cool. I am guessing its preaty easy to use once I figure it out. the reason being is it my dads and he sometimes gets lost west of olds. he has never camped at the pads.

easiest way to input coords, is to go there and hit "mark" and then name the spot. makes for good riding!!! LOL

Yeh, it is easy after just a little learning of the functions.
