When they get back, they use ExpertGPS to upload all of their Garmin waypoints, routes, and tracks onto their computer and save it. Indeed, it is a pleasure to ride down the road and see a major power line on the map, and then see it on the landscape. Overall I am happy with the unit. All of this wouldn’t be so bad except the the Garmin units will handle only their own format of mapping, effectively cutting out the competition. You can also store additional maps and any other excursion data on the MB removable microSD card that comes with the device. Mack Read full review.

All Forerunner models; most Garmin watches. They can then download as much data as possible onto their GPS leaving some room for GPS data collection map76cssx in the field.
Still using paper forms, map76cxx typing data into your GPS piece-by-piece? But for now, I don’t think there is anythings on the market, yet, that can outperform this unit. For whatever it’s map76cxs, I’ve heard mxp76csx things from sailing publications about the blue water maps, and most reviews about GPS mapping suggest the Garmin city maps are at least typical – not great, but on par with other vendors.
There’s no need to mark waypoints as you collect data – just snap photos at each site. Show less Show more. ExpertGPS allows you to calculate acreage in three different ways: You do have to keep clear you access to the satellites when working in narrow canyons, otherwise your location accuracy diminishes. In ExpertGPS, connect those waypoints into a route, and the acreage is automatically calculated. Equipped with a highly accurate electronic compass that provides bearing information and a built-in barometric altimeter that tracks changes in pressure, this fascinating device pinpoints your altitude precisely.
I wonder, though, how accurate the internal mapping is.
Good oldie These units are now obsoleteand the maker refuses to support them anymoreIf you want to use one you have to find a good used one. If I had to do it over, I would probably get one of those, as the built-in memory holds enough data for several states.
The active tracklog holds trackpoints. While still sufficient for basic navigation, it is a bit disconcerting.
See details for description of any pgs. This partly depends on what color background you choose. To improve the detail of the mapping, I bought the Topo maps, which brags it provides detailed elevation, all the roads, and a few other details. Gpw found the screen to be good in almost all lighting situations, and the menu system is adequate – I can find most functions, even as a new operator, within a few passes through the menu list.
You have to be-careful that you do not break any of the four power prongs behind the GPS units. Being impatient with slow technology the ‘x’ feature which allows faster satelite acquisition was important to me.

The compass page does not show the next waypoint’s name but it might be able to be configured to do so, I just haven’t had it long enough to solve that yet. The micro sd card is nice, but unless you are going on very very long trips, the 76cs or 60cs will hold lots of data. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.

The backlight works great, but lowers battery life if you don’t have it hooked to external power. Garmin eTrex 10 Handheld ExpertGPS can do it 5x faster! The plug in for 12 volt power supply is very handy to spare the AA batteries, but must be purchased separately. ExpertGPS makes it easy to rename and organize your routes.
