Using A GPS

I started using a GPS this past year when I go for walks or hunting they are the best piece of equipment I have tried in a long time. You know how far you walked. You can mark different things that you can use for future reference. Such as deer trails, good stand locations, ECT. Also when you get home you can download your Waypoints you marked, You can download your track and it shows you were all you walked right on the map. Then you can customize your own topo maps with different symbols and draw tools. I use the Garmin 12 Gps and the Delorme 3-D topo quads Mapping CD Program
