    My current handheld is a Garmin Etrex that dates to around 2000, or 2001. It still works fine, except at the bottom of hills, in creek bottoms, or in dense canopy. I have been thinking about upgrading to a Garmin Etrex 10, but not sure if an upgrade is really needed. A map function would be...

    I'm looking for a GPS unit for Christmas. I've seen a few that look nice but I'm not that savvy when it comes to these things. I'm looking for advice and recommendations on what you guys like and what you think is a great unit. I don't know if it's possible but I would prefer a GPS that has the...

    :confused: Hello all, So what is your favorite GPS? I am a noob backpacker and still learning here. I took the REI GPS basics course last night and checked out a few different GPS models. I was told that a lot of those new iPhone looking Garmins are really just for looks, but nothing else good...

    Last weekend my son and I went on a day hiking trip. Before we left the truck I got out the Garmin GPS and the topo maps and saved the truck as a waypoint. We then hiked to a local creek and had lunch with eversafe meals - which are kinda like MREs. From the creek we went back up the hill...

    Anyone own a Garmin Etex Summit HC? (new purchase by me) two questions for starters: 1. Map page: there are two map orientations: North up orients the map like a paper map; track up orients the map in the direction of travel. Why two choices? Which is better? 2. compass page...

The point of this trip is to get out of view of...
