Re: [gpsstash] GPS Recommendations

Hi Nyal-

First, you HAVE to check out this page:

Tons of info on GPS. Probably too much. But wade through what you can,
and read about all the basics. It's pretty much a gold mine of info on
GPS, especially opinions and stats on all kinds of models. A review on
the 315 is here-

You can't go wrong with Magellan. Our first unit (my dad and I) was the
2000 (I think. Maybe the 3000). My dad still uses it extensively while
duck hunting. I recently got a Garmin 12map. Mainly because of what I
was using a gps for- driving. But also quite a bit of marine and hiking
use. I didn't think I'd use mine much for roadtrips, but it's now a
majority of its use. While it's not vital, you should give some thought
to what you know you immediately want to use a gps for, and also what
you might use it for in the future. Look for features that will
complement that.
