Hi indi
I’ve got the Doug Stone Vic Atlas I’d consider selling. What do you call cheap for the Atlas?
PM a ball park offer and if in the range I can send you photos showing used but good condition.
Cheers

A poorly thought out post

Not everyone is tech savvy & the more info you can get , the better

Paper maps are cheap , from $15 , find a piece of Gold , all paid for ...

The poster might be new to Gold Prospecting , paper maps are always welcome

Nothing wrong with Doug stone maps

i can say i use paper maps in the field
but do use the net for research at home
dont trust electronics in the field
i find paper dosent need recharging and if laminated or in plastic it dosent matter if it gets wet it wont stop working JMO
