    Handheld GPS

    Hey guys,

    Just wondering what’s the latest and greatest handheld GPS everyone is using these days for there backpack hunting?

    Cheers Guy

    Hi Guy - maybe not the flashest - but for simplicity and performance - locks on in about 30 seconds - I like the Garmin Etrex 20x - but never rely on a battery gadget - learn to read a map and use a compass.

    x2 I have the Garmin 64st model with built in maps however most of the time that is my backup and I just use one of the smart phone apps such as onX Hunt. Download the area you are hunting before you go & you have google earth imaging with satellite tracking & all the features of a regular gps even if there is no phone service. The only downside with the smart phone is using it in rain as the screens don't work well when your fingers are wet.

    I use the Garmin Montana 650 , a bit bigger than most but the advantages are,

    Bigger screen for better viewing,
    Can use AA batteries or rechargeable battery from factory,
    Can double up as a camera ,with each photo having gps footprint ,so you don’t have to name all waypoints,
    You can download satellite imagery
