Choosing the Best GPS for Your Outdoor Needs by Sally Perkinsbackpack

What’s your favourite outdoor activity? Whether you love camping, are a seasoned hiker, or just an outdoor enthusiast, selecting the right GPS for your outdoor needs can make or break your experience. Use these tips to make the right decision on your next GPS.

Consider the Primary Use for the GPS

Just like there are computers for specialised uses like gaming, graphic design, or office use, there are GPS systems for outdoor applications. For example, boating sonar and fishing maps even have specialised fish finders, tides, water depth, and more. Buy a GPS designed for your primary use.

Focus on Durability

Stick to a brand designed for outdoor use with your next GPS. There are many options out there, many of which are designed primarily for in-vehicle use. Be sure to choose a device made to withstand the outdoor elements, like falling in the water or experiencing big drops.

Check Map Availability

Some systems require updates or future purchases of maps to keep the GPS functional. Don’t decide until you’ve looked into map availability. If you buy a system on sale, make sure the model will still get updates and not stick with old map data.

Signal Coverage

Most systems promise good signal coverage for outdoor activities. If you are a weekend warrior committed to specific routes or trail hikes, the most accurate GPS, supplemented by EGNOS, may not be necessary. For real enthusiasts, exact coverage is more important. Just remember, more expensive models tend to be more precise in their measurements.

Screen Lighting for Multiple Environments

The weather changes rapidly in Ireland, you hike during different times of the year, and your gear changes. Select a GPS with a touch screen which responds to gloves and finger touches. Another feature to look for is a backlight designed for shade, bright light, and everything in between.

Battery Life

Check the battery life of your GPS for when it is in use as well as how long it holds a charge. The last thing you need is a dead GPS when you are out on the trails.

Storage Space

Systems come with preloaded maps, but if you download your own, you need storage space. Be sure to check the onboard memory and your options for expandable memory if you need it in the future.

All of these factors combine to help you make the right GPS selection decision. Consider your outdoor activity, do some research, and purchase with confidence!
