So, you’ve taken up Geocaching or Munzee?
But your iPhone or Android device has terrible accuracy, keeps losing signal or runs out of battery just when you need it?
That’s when you start thinking about a hand held dedicated GPS unit. And there are some cool devices out there. But there are some cool prices to match.
Right now, even the best hand held GPS unit has a pretty small screen, and is difficult to read in sunlight.
In your car, you have a Sat Nav system with great accuracy, a decent size screen, and (in many cases), even a pedestrian mode so you can take it out of the car and start walking.
GPX-Mate (Software for Windows and Mac) ...makes it possible to use the GPX files (pocket queries) on your car sat nav, for a near-paperless caching solution.
- Maps are built-in to the car sat nav, so you don’t need an internet connection to update the screen.
- GPS receivers in the sat nav are much better at keeping your position under tree cover than (for example) an iPhone.
- Car Sat Nav systems are a fraction of the price of a dedicated unit.
- Most times in the field, all you need to know is the name and the hint.
If you agree, we can save you hundreds on buying a dedicated GPS unit.
