Hi all - new member to this list

Two questions.

First and most important one is what GPS devices would you guys recommend? 
Currently sort of looking at a Route 66 thingy (http://www.66.com/), but I 
actually am sort of trying to get hold of a test unit or something, but 
we'll see.

Second question, is wen using loadstone, does it in fact access the street 
names/POI database which might in fact be loaded on the actual GPS unit?  I 
was previously sort of testing the Humanware Trekker thing, and I very 
briefly sort of tried to test that included GPS unit with Loadstone, but I 
didn't really do much more than create one or two of my own POIs as such, 
and I had to give the whole gadget back to the suppliers a bit too soon to 
test much more.

One other interesting thing I'm also planning on using this combination for 
is actually to ride an off-road motorbike around an open area, and I know 
the loadstone/GPS combination should be 'good' for that sort of thing.

Stay well
