Recent GPS Receiver Reviews

DeLorme inReach SE

rated 4 of 5 stars The safety of an SOS button connected via satellite to a monitoring response team combined with features you can use on every trip. Those features include two way texting including localized weather reports, live updating of your personal online map and others you can choose or ignore as desired. The device and subscription service are not cheap, but for those venturing far afield, especially those who go alone, it gives a good return on the investment. Lots of function packed into a pretty small… Full review

Magellan Triton 500

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Rock solid unit. I had a Magellan Sportrak Map unit, but this blows it away with USB connectivity, map downloads, SD card support and so much color! Very nice feel and the buttons are great. I use it mostly for geocaching, and having all the cache data in one unit is fantastic. Androids and Apple products can do this too, but not with the precision of a purpose-built unit.  I just cannot get over the map features while hiking the hills looking for a geocache. Yeah, I got it for $4 + tax at Goodwill… Full review

Garmin eTrex 30

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I am only weighing in on eTrex as to use of it without buying the expensive Garmin map subscriptions. It has worked fine as it was able to synch with Google Earth when the data is downloaded to my laptop. However, Garmin basecamp, which is the program to download from your device to a computer, will no longer work with Google Earth. The support team at Garmin tells me that I must use Garmin maps. I bought the device not wanting the map subscription and because it worked with Google Earth. Now it… Full review

DeLorme inReach Explorer

rated 5 of 5 stars I use my inReach in Alaska where there is no cell service.  When boating or cross-country skiing I can post my location to Facebook every hour or every 4-hours and restrict this information to specific users. I can also text to cell phones or email accounts to let folks know about my trip. The InReach also has an emergency SOS button in case emergency help is needed. Full review

Bushnell BackTrack

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Worthless. Use a compass or buy another product. Have two friends that each have one and myself that got one as a birthday present. Would have died if I didn't have a backup. Don't use it as a serious backup. Full review

Trace

rated 4 of 5 stars Trace is a sports tracking system designed for snow and water sports. It's a GPS device that records a variety of information that is then downloaded to a smartphone or computer. This easy to use sports tracker is a useful tool for training or just all-around fun. This small (1 7/8" x 3/4") device combines an advanced 9-axis inertial measurement unit (9X IMU) and GPS sensors to track a variety of sports including snow sports, water sports, and downhill mountain biking. The 9X IMU's ability to track… Full review

Garmin eTrex 20x

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Easy to use, water resistant. This GPS does the job well. It is fairly easy to use once you watch a couple of youtube videos. Garmin's free baseCamp software can be used to program routes and retrieve tracks off of the GPS. I've used it several times, once in a downpour all day, and never had a problem. The only problem I have is with the joystick controller on the front of the unit. It's great to use to control the GPS, but once you put it in your pocket or a backpack's hip belt pocket it activates… Full review

Garmin Fenix 3

rated 4.5 of 5 stars More accurate measure of your distance traveled than distances shown on hiking maps! It lets you see and know via a slight vibration when you are off trail. I have only used this on a 3-day hike through the White Mountains, but am pleased enough to write a first impressions review. I did recharge the Fenix each night using an external battery so cannot comment on whether one charge holds ups over a three-day period. I downloaded my routes to the Fenix and did not buy the Garmin maps. I may buy maps… Full review

DeLorme inReach Explorer

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a must have item on a backcountry thru hike! GPS satellite communication device with tracking and text messaging capability and SOS. I bought this device at a recent REI Garage sale for a steal! I've been wanting one for a long time and now I own one! I activated it immediately, which was easy to do. There are multiple different plans to choose from. I have loaded more than 50 trails and routes to the device and it is amazing! I'm super excited to have this device for my upcoming JMT thru… Full review
