We all use GPS navigation in our phones but we hardly have any idea about what it actually is. Global Positioning System is used for navigational purposes is controlled by the U.S. Defense Department. 24 satellites that are used by the GPS system allow the people to find any destination on earth. Just like that, Garmin GPS Systems will never let you cancel your trip. Be it Hiking, Cross Country Skiing, Backcountry Backpacking or Driving, it would go alongside to make an effective trip. This is not it, you can also track your child coming from school or a trip or a small picnic.

Sometimes, GPS system does lack in other features. It would track someone’s location, take you to your destination but it might not let you know the weather conditions. This is where Handheld GPS devices would do. They cover a wide range of area, gives you an accurate location of your position, helps you find your location at a vertical plane (it acts as a barometer). Along with that one does not need to download maps as it is in-built. It supports various mapping options like for roadways and waterways including topography and satellite imagery. Besides GPS devices, one can purchase Garmin Topo Maps to study the ecology and a geographic terrain.

So, the next time you go for hiking or climbing, include the essentials in your backpack, you are going to need them. Whether it is finding a Restaurant near you, locating your own position, the above devices would do.
