If you’re at all like us, you love getting outside, hiking, walking, running, exploring any way you can imagine. Even if you know a specific terrain fairly well, it’s still common to stumble into a region you are unsure of, that’s where a great hand held trail GPS system can come in useful. These easy to pack, lightweight receivers can pinpoint exactly where you are on a trail in the back country. While we carry a wide array of handheld GPS units for exploring trails, one of our favorites is the Garmin GPSMAP 62stc. This lightweight, compact handheld GPS has it all at a great price. It includes a 5 megapixel camera and is preloaded with tons of maps (over 100k.) This GPS unit has a quad helix antenna, which, if you’re not familiar with GPS units and terminology yet, means that it has reception that is far and away some of the best reception you will find in other comparable GPS units on the market today. It also has a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass, and a barometric altimeter, all of this means that you are bound to find your way on trails, no matter how undeveloped they are, or if you have hiked these trails twice, 20 times, or never before in your life. Whether you are hiking, camping, geocaching, or exploring the great outdoors in any number of ways, this is definitely the handheld GPS unit you’re going to want to have in your backpack.
