UPDATE on this one!
Back from the MTB trip in Cuba. In short:
- Mailed 3 times without reply. (2 months to 2 weeks before depart)
- Took my Garmin Edge with me anyway,
- And so did 8 others (from a 16 person group).
- Everybody brought his own bike, so we were quite the eyecatcher
=> and nobody was stopped or asked about the GPS.
So basicly I think it's a bit over hyped...
(PS:Caching in Cuba, by either smartphone or gps, without planning in advance is simply impossible. I had wifi connection in 2 streets. And we biked 620km en did about as much by bus...)
