    Garmin GPS found on Kinder

    Boxing Day - I found a Garmin GPS near Kinder Low. It was pretty wet, so may have been there a couple of days.

    Let me know if it's yours.

    Can you download the last few runs to give us a clue?
    Three of us were lost up there on Christmas Eve but I found my compass more use than my GPS in getting us off safely! If you found a pair of Thinsulate gloves they are mine!

    Doubtful. I've never used a GPS in my life. It took me 5 minutes to work out how to switch it on (after spending 15 hours recharging the batteries).

    I found one near Ladybower Reservoir last year and after a few hours recharging it and trying to get owner info out of it I ended up phoning Garmin with the serial number.

    They tracked the owner and gave me a phone number. I phoned the guy who sounded a right miserable git! He'd lost it while mountain biking and sounded like he couldn't care less.

    Top and bottom is that I posted it back to him - and he not only never thanked me but didn't offer to refund the postage!

    If I found another one I'd do the same tho . . .
