Re: gps?

Had a Garmin Dakota 20 that I really liked for saving locations. It was easy, not too big, and had a nice touchscreen. There are a lot better ones, but it was under $200 and did the job. Problem is I left it on the bumper last year and lost it. Im looking for another too. Like Burk said, check ebay or even craigslist.

I would do that but I don't have unlimited data.

Re: gps?

Garmin Etrex. Try to find a package deal where you get the higher def topo maps on a micro SD card with it. That's a $99 add-in that you can sometimes find bundled for $25 more.

Re: gps?

Re: gps?

These look cool. Garmin fenix wrist watch gps.

They have a map even though it will be hard to see. Don't think you really need a basemap if you are just locating stand locations.
