GPS Opinions


yellowsubmarine

Question

I'd like to start doing a little research on GPS units. Since I'll be using it for fishing, ice fishing, and hunting, I've already decided to get a handheld instead of a big mapping unit that permanently installs in the boat. I only have a little experience with them, but from what I can tell, I want one that will you give me the distance to my waypoint in yards or feet instead of .1 or .01 miles. I also want one I can punch in waypoints in a format of 94 03 227 instead of 94 03 28. Also want it to be user friendly. So, what I'm wondering is, can anyone give me some opinions on what you've used or are using. Why you like it opposed to another, brand/ models. Just looking for a place to start I guess. Or maybe you could tell me some other things I should take into consideration. Thanks in advance.

Hey Josh, I forgot to mention in the email this morning that you should try a search on this forum. If you do this you'll be able to keep busy reading all day till you leave the office, and still have more to read tomorrow!!!

I think Tennesseean is a guy that can answer any questions you may have, I think I remeber him posting once that he's in the business or something along those lines. Hopefully he'll see this and post his email for you.

I've got an older Garmin III that indicates feet and mileage. It only gives the reading in feet when you are within about 300 feet from the coordinate.

I can manually set a coordinate by scrolling an arrow on my screen to the exact spot on the lake with the mapping feature and enter it in. I don't know if mine manually sets a spot by numbers or not? I'll have to try that.

It also has the mapping feature which shows just about every lake around. Highways too.

I use it year round for hunting, ice fishing and in the boat. I use a RAM mount on my ATV, snowmobile and boat. It is so user friendly I wouldn't trade it for the world.

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
