I've been eying the Columbuses. Do you know what the difference is between
the V900 and the (newer) V990?
One feature that I particularly like about the 990 is the ability to switch
to passive mode (GPS off) when the internal accelerometer doesn't detect
movement or the device loses its fix for more than a few minutes. That
would mean you could just forget about switching the logger off and on.
Does that really work? Also the built-in voice tagging seems nice, anyone
tried that for mapping?
