Should we allow questions and/or recommendations about software & electronic devices related to the outdoors?
Typically, any kind of question seeking a shopping recommendation has been off-topic, across the board at Stack Exchange.
As for software questions, I think they should be off-topic, perhaps asked/migrated at/to Super User, our site for computer hardware/software (full disclosure: I'm a SU diamond moderator), where well-written, specific software-rec questions are allowed.
Example question: Are there any cheap 1:25K electronic maps for the UK or Europe?
What about questions regarding GPS units? Should those be allowed in the scope of The Great Outdoors?
