Hand held GPS?

(1/1)

Yenling83:
Anyone use a handheld GPS unit for collecting?  How beneficial do you feel it is? Is it easy to mark trees and find them?  Recommend any specific units?  Thanks!

I was considering getting the
Garmin eTrex 20 GPS at the REI outlets

    $185.00

Hi,
I use my camera with built in GPS for recording the location of the tree of interest easily.  Also means i can look up where i collected  a tree from in the future if i forget, just by looking at the image info.

 Although a handheld GPS would be needed to actually find some of them if they were well off the trail  ;)

Interested to see what others say.
Greg
