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

Garmin eTrex 30x

rated 0.5 of 5 stars No battery, no s/d card, no way to carry fasten to equipment, just as well not had a map. No topo map, not much of anything, but wasted money in a drawer with other outdated phones and junk. I've owned two other Garmin products for l5 years. They are excellent pieces of equipment. This is why I'm so disappointed in the 30X. Look what maps are offered and cost. Very disappointed in world map. Would have been nice to zoom in to see where your on a trail at any time. Maybe I was expecting too much… Full review

Garmin GPSMAP 62st

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Hand draw your route in Base Camp. My problem with Base Camp and all other back-country mapping software, is that you can't just put in the starting point and the end point and any waypoints in-between. You must manually hand draw on your computer the actual route you want to take as precise as possible, then transfer that route to your GPS. It won't just route itself on the trail, like a street GPS follows a street route. WHY NOT? This is 2016! Precision is required if you are wanting any kind… Full review

Garmin GPSMAP 62st

rated 4 of 5 stars Great unit, accurate, reliable and robust, but loses a star because of the BaseCamp software. This GPS can get a signal in many places where other GPS units fail. This unit is quite old, released in August 2010 (five years ago) but sold up until 2016. It has (just) been superseded by the new 64-series of models. It has been a long time since I have intensively used a GPS. I did engineering at Uni and did two years of Surveying. Back then GPS units were the size of suitcases. Almost 20 years ago… Full review

Garmin GPSMAP 62s

rated 5 of 5 stars This is my go-to handheld GPS. OK, so this GPS is awesome! I have loaded it up with SO much topo, like multiple states, and it still rocks. It's really easy to use as a basic GPS, which I normally use it for.  You can essentially turn it on and start walking. It gains its 3 satellites in a matter of minutes depending on your location. Not to be used in caves. But I can turn it on in my house and it magically has service.  The buttons on it are a little excessive.  The POWER button on the side… Full review

Garmin eTrex

rated 5 of 5 stars Great little GPS. This little GPS does what you need—it gets you there and back. I have had this eTrex since sometime in the early 2000s. The screens are basic and so is the operation of the unit. It can be used one-handed without any problems. I can plug in my coordinates and be gone before my son can using his phone app.   It's pretty well shock proof, water/dust proof and never fails to navigate me where I'm going. The battery life is amazing also. Besides backpacking I also geocache so I… Full review

Garmin GPS 64

rated 3 of 5 stars $150 on Costco.com! I've needed a GPS for a while after getting lost (because I didn't have a map — yeah I know — stupid). But planning some major adventures coming up and don't ever want to be without map and GPS. I like to know my progress and my map skills aren't 100% but I am pretty darn good. I'm not rich and was never willing to drop $200-$400+ on a GPS My girlfriend got me this one for Xmas on Costco.com for $150. I told her that was a steal since it goes for $250 and if I don't like… Full review

Garmin Oregon 600

rated 4 of 5 stars The Garmin Oregon 600 a versatile touchscreen GPS. With the addition of topographical maps, it's an invaluable aid when hiking and backpacking. The Garmin's Oregon 600 is a feature rich handheld GPS. The 600 is waterproof; features a 3.0 touchscreen, customizable screens and exterior buttons; includes a digital compass and barometric altimeter. It also tracks GPS and Glassass satellites. The 600 includes 1.5 gigs of internal memory which allows the internal basemap to store up to 4000 waypoints,… Full review
