Ditto BUT I cycle in Canberra which has an extensive network of off- 
road cyclepaths and footpaths which mainly run through parkland and  
very, very little signage. When riding in a new area I sometime find  
myself say "where the f**k am I?" and have to diverge from the path  
to find a road sign so I can consult a map. A GPS would be nice which  
showed me a "you are here" marker . Having to backtrack a few km  
because you chose the wrong fork in the path is annoying. Yes there  
IS a cyclepath/footpath map but it seems not every little path is  
shown clearly.
