GPS

What is the best GPS to get? Most accurate and most usuable features?

Re: GPS

Garmin, i have a colorada. I also have a magellan sport trac.
The garmin in more user friendly but your heading arrow jumps around a little and can get confusing.
The magellan is not as user friendly but is more consistant with your heading arrow.
I started carring a compass recently due to my GPS letting me confused. Its nice because it shows you track so you can always go off your track (what you walked already), as long as you have a compass.

Re: GPS

Do a search on here, you will find several threads on this! But I prefer Garmin as well.

Re: GPS

Garmin Oregon 400t or above.

Come with the TOPO maps, and very user friendly. Its one tool that I always have with me.
