In this post on Choosing a GPSr (GPS receiver),we’d like to explain why a good vendor website can supplement your GPSr.
Most vendors do a pretty good job of providing basic documentation and firmware downloads from their websites,but some add special features like downloadable maps,satellite images,and specialized lists of waypoints. Also look for companion software —preferably free —that can extend or add features to your GPSr. You should update your firmware regularly to fix bugs and take advantage of new features. Some vendors also post software written by their customers.
