I, also, have been "eyeing" this unit for use on an ATV to map out club trails using Terrain Navigator. I would like to see some comments/reviews be fore investing in this unit.
Wow, I'd given up on any response. I thought either nobody is reading this forum, or Lowrance has never sold a single Baja 480!
I have looked all over, posted to a couple other forums but have not found any reviews or even anyone who admits to owning one. It sure looks good from it's specs. From the research I've done since I posted this plea for help a month ago I think the question boils down to the difference between the Lowrance MapCreate Topo and Garmin's Mapsource Topo US. If I knew they were comparable I think I would take a chance on the hardware. Problem is I've seen comparisons of Lowrance software to Garmin's, admitedly a couple years old, but it appears Lowrance's is less detailed. I don't know about the accuracy.
