All the above, plus be able to put it on my belt and use both hands to climb tree, be even better if it came equipped with bayonet and 30 MM chain gun. (although may drag my pants down with all that, and catch swine flu,,,,,,,again) randyp

Garmin

10-4,,went academy online and perused Garmins. Did like what I did saw. Thank You vewy much. Garmin has yet to market one with bayonet, and caliber not large enough in their chain gun. All that said, yes, like garmins. randyp

Being pretty much what i think they call a "techo-phobe" i still use my old school "PNS" (paper navigation system) i go to enough places where one mistake (direction wise) can be a big problem! Mrs. Vision got me one years ago,i have never had the heart to tell her its never been out of the box,just don't trust em!.....................................Mark

garmin, got one in 2002 and have used all around the world, and they have free updates and stuff, is accurate to about 5-10 ft depending on satellites have had it dead on to. Used it a lot in Iraq to mark check points and routes and such, also used it in Michigan to tell when the best fishing time was, used it on several diffrent propertys to locate the pins and marked a few honey holes but wife moves around too much

Preference is Garmin. But I tell others...sometimes you have to use the PNS and know where you are going. Otherwise the "bitch in the box" will get you lost. Oh and I hate "recalculating"!
