Re: [gpsstash] What's The Opinion on a Garmin GPS12?
> The Garmin 12 is an incredible unit,
I have a Garmin 12XL, which I would highly recommend. As I have said previously on this list, its best feature is its ruggedness. I've literally dropped it down the site of cliffs and into rock and snow. I would not take any of the wimpier units I've seen into the wilderness.
The biggest negative is that it seems to be a bit of a power sponge. I have to pack an extra set of batteries, even when it is near "F"; it does not, IMO, have the battery life as advertised in the manual.
