Has anybody utilised the quest with the routes/tracks downloaded from the "memory-map" series of OS maps. I am looking to purchase a quest to use in the car AND off-road on my bike, but nobody can confirm the track transfer will work!
Basically, I want it to work like a standard GPS ie Etrex when off-road.

You can definitely use the Quest for off-road navigation, by setting the route preference to "Off Road". The route can be defined as a series of waypoints which can be selected from the internal map, entered using lat/long or British National Grid format. With an off road route, the quest will display a compass page, showing bearing and distance to the next waypoint.

The Quest also has a track log, though it can only save a single log at a time. These can be uploaded to a PC using the MapSource package and can subsequently be transferred back. There is a tracback feature which can be used to follow them.

I haven't used memory map but I would expect that exporting routes as waypoints would work.

The Quest is primarily designed for on-road use, but would be suitable for occasional off road use.
