GPS units

32 posts in this topic

There are affordable garmin units out there that you can create your own basemap with. This means you can grab google earth sat imagry and use it as a background. I do this kind of stuff for a living so if you really want to know how hit me up.

Man, I hate you guys...I've been wanting a GPS forever. I just bought this guy and some mounting accessories, but didn't pay nearly that price thankfully. https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=310Chalk up another reason my AR's are going to be waiting a little longer.Can I blame this forum for a lot of money spent in the last year, let alone the last month or two?

So I've read that the model I just purchased has some "iffyness" with the basemap. People (the reviews) are saying that I'll want to add additional Mapping software...what would I need if i deem the basemapping inadequate?

sorry folks but the batteries have never died in my Quadrangle map and compass.
Amen. GPS units are a weakness and only useful for calling ARTY. Maps are #1, GPS #2/verfication.also keep 2 maps especialy if you solo hunt. One on you and one at homecamp/home/with friends if somebody needs to come find your sorry butt.
