I know you use one Geoff, i was only [half] joking, not really good for a true bimble though eh?

Would have been very helpful if the people who built Trevethy had one, and logged all the stone co-ordinates. ;)

I do prefer a "manual" bimble, but taking an accurate grid ref on each site visit is a good thing imo. I have had feedback from pecsaetan saying people appreciated them, people who may well not have visited without having it.
A good example is the old womans stone on Bamford Moor, a bugger to find for most.

when hill walking I often dump my rucksack on a fence line or prominent rock if there is one and come back later , handy if it's misty or cloud comes down just have to find the line and keep to it but with the gps I can leave it anywhere as long as you remember to take the ref and the gps with you .

Now that's a good use, a cross on a map isn't quite as accurate that's for sure.
