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

Satmap Active 12

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I easily configured this for left-handed use and have used it really effectively even with the standard 1:50 basic Landranger map that it comes with. I have also bought regional maps (10 to 45 gbp) at 1:25 and less for geo-caching, walking mountain trails and cycling the moors. For all uses this has replaced my Garmin and is easier to use since everything is button press function access, which might sound an odd positive but miss-touching a capacitive screen to lose the detail in a swipe (particularly… Full review

Garmin eTrex 20x

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great for everything you would expect it to be used for, but difficult to use. No one would want a phone that required you to press "7" four times to text the letter "s". Why has this not evolved? We loaded gpx files, saved tracks, followed coordinates, etc. every thing worked great. My only complaint is that I need to hit Google every time I want to try something new. Its interface hasn't evolved in 10 plus years. Time for a major overhaul.  Full review

Magellan eXplorist 510

rated 1 of 5 stars Don't buy one !!!! They have random PCB problems. Don't buy one !!!! Most have a battery drain fault that Magellan won't fix. It's on the PCB and effects 510 610 710 randomly and it will get you stuck in the middle of nowhere!!!! Take them back while you have warranty and it's not the suspend mode or the screen capture.

DeLorme inReach SE

rated 4 of 5 stars It worked when I really needed it in the Sierras (and was a comfort in Mongolia). I bought this device as my "rattlesnake plan." My plan is to always carry it on hikes as my Plan B if I get bitten (or break a leg, etc) too far from the trailhead for cell service and too far for my wife to find her way out (poor sense of direction). I bought it on sale at REI--$50 off plus $50 service credit, so effectively $200. I've used it on numerous day hikes in the SF Bay area and the Sierras and I used it… Full review

Garmin Oregon 600

rated 4 of 5 stars Mixing performance, size and features makes the Garmin Oregon a win in my books. Overall, I am really happy with this unit. It fulfills the need I have to be able to accurately see where I am, find where I am going, and give me interesting information along the way such as watering holes, sunset times, elevation and other helpful details. It lasts a long time on a set of good quality batteries and will hold up over the long run for me. REI had these on a deal earlier this year and couldn't pass… Full review

Garmin eTrex 30

rated 4 of 5 stars Don't go in to the mountains without it. I use my Garmin eTrex 30 from hiking/backpacking to 4-wheeling and every other time I head up to the mountains. I received this as a gift and have been using it for almost a year now. There are a lot of great features that this device has from basic GPS and compass, trip computer, waypoints to area calculations, clocks/alarms, proximity alarms, sight 'N go, you name it, it seems to have all the bells and whistles. I use the trip computer every time I… Full review

Garmin Fenix

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I took this guy out for our first field test on the Buffalo River a few weeks ago. Really great watch for the avid outdoors man. The trackback feature came in handy several times on that rocky terrain. The storm alarm was a lifesaver too. The river rose 5 feet during the night! The Garmin Fenix is the product for you if you are heading outdoors. If you like to bike, hike, run, fly, swim, float, or fish then this little package has a lot to offer. It has multiple profile settings that you can choose… Full review

Rand McNally Foris 850

rated 4 of 5 stars Great GPS for under a $100. Does everything I need. I bought this for around $85 shipped from Amazon for rattlesnake hunting the mountains of Western Pennsylvania, geocaching, and for hiking with my wife and daughter. With all honesty, I've only had one other GPS and it was a Magellan Sport I found it to be worthless. So I have nothing else to compare it to. This thing is very easy to use. It picks up satellites very quickly. It is loaded with maps for trails, forests, and bike trails, etc. It is… Full review
