I tend to use my samsung s7 phone over the 64s because of screen size. The 64 has a tiny screen and find it hard to see.

Yeah they're really good gps, really easy to use.  Good idea, I'm thinking of doing that too as my ph has good battery life and a big screen.

Hey Rich, I have just been given a 64st  (new)  can you tell me how to set it up?  I tried to input some co ordinates off my old 60Cx, they appeared to be all good until I checked where they were showing on the map. I havnt in many years and phones been able to find a phone that has reception/service in many of the areas I hunt

Iceman, the topo50 app (and other gps/mapping apps) don't need cell coverage to work. In fact put the phone on flightmode to conserve power and they will still work.
