I highly reccommend Garmin Products. You do have to keep clear you access to the satellites when working in narrow canyons, otherwise your location accuracy diminishes. The plug in for 12 volt power supply is very handy to spare the AA batteries, but must be purchased separately.

I have been on several roads where it appeared we were ft or more off the road, and my boat’s “position” while on a lake seemed to be on dry land. Indeed, it is a pleasure to ride down the road and see a major power line on the map, and then see it on the landscape.

As for me, it does what I need albeit not as well, due to the maps, as I’d like.
