GPS - Daniel S.

I am looking to buy a good GPS. Does anyone have suggestions. I want to be able to waypoint, trail keeping and get in and out with no hickups. Thanks and God Bless

Have used an e-Trex for 4 yrs. hunting elk in CO. Got me back to camp every night & day with no problems. Easy to use for dummies like me. Really gives one confidence to roam the mountains. However, be sure to carry a compass and know how to use it. Batteries go dead or the blame thing might stop working.

I've had a Garmin Oregon 300 for several years. Very quick satellite acquisition - even in the middle of a middle GA swamp. Accuracy is impressive, as well. I have hundreds of waypoints marked from hunting locations in multiple states. Topo map is nice when hunting in the mountains, as well. I never "mark" my path to a treestand now (with tape or glow tacks) - I simply mark the waypoint, and then follow the GPS to the stand, even in the dark. This helps keep unwanted company from intruding on your hunting area. Just spend a lot of time getting to know it and learning to trust it, and ALWAYS carry spare batteries. I have spare batteries in every backpack / fanny pack, as well as my turkey vest, and further backup in my truck, just in case. Good luck.

I love my Garmin Oregon 450T. $25 a year gets you the Bird's Eye Satellite imagery and it is great! Like everyone else has said always carry a compass and extra batteries and learn how to use all the features! Good Luck!
