I'm looking to buy a GPS, so I'm looking for suggestions and experiences people have had with whatever you're currently using.
I also have a question: If I'm taking a GPS on a long trip (multiple days), will changing the batteries lose the track I'm recording?
Recently purchased a Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx for use on a Denali trip. Software included TOPO U.S. 100K for all states and Puerto Rico. I purchased a separate chip for AK only. Without having a chance to operate it much before going on the mountain, I found it easy to use and was able to scroll through the menu and pages without difficulty. It seemed more intuitive to use than my 15 year old black and white screened Garmin and Magellan units. Another teammate had an identical unit and found that our elevations were always a bit different even when we set the units next to each other. It's suggested that (new) double A lithium batteries not be used because they might exceed 1.5 volts and shut the unit off. I didn't experience any difficulty. You can change batteries without losing data.
DeLorme is supposed to be coming out with a new unit this month. It's already getting good reviews through the grapevine. I tried to find one before my trip but they hadn't hit the market yet. It might be worth it to compare the Delorme with the Garmin.
