  • Summary: First off, I would recommend any hiking GPS system as a backup to a simply map and compass. That said, I want to clarify something about this particular model.

  • Summary: This thing looks like a good deal at first, but it seems nearly impossible to load maps with any useful information on to it. They claim that it comes with a "base map" of the U.S., don't plan on using it though. It only shows major highways, and doesn't even get those right.
  • Pros: Seems sturdy, Inexpensive, Gives latitude and longitude fairly accurately
  • Cons: If you want topo maps for hiking you're outta luck., There may be a way around the lack of useful maps, but be prepared to spend days and days downloading third party software, downloading maps, learning to rasterize your own maps, figuring out how to load them.

  • Excerpt: Although we have 3 Garmins for the cars, this our first handheld. We purchased 2 for Christmas 2007 and had to wait several months before getting them. They arrived as we were leaving the country for a month in Feb. Our 21 day return option went out the door. From the get go we have had trouble.
