We purchased a handheld GPS for hiking the Continental Divide Trail.  We had little experience previously with this device, turns out, it was an awesome addition to our gear list!  We used a Delorme GPS which worked well.  The GPS, in addition to our maps, helped us pinpoint where we were and gave us options on how to get from point A to point B.  As I mentioned earlier, the CDT is only 70% complete so many times you find yourself on an off-trail adventure.  Each night we would make a waypoint and at the end of the trail we put it on our computer and were able to see a line from Mexico to Canada where we had hiked!

Does anyone have a "favorite" GPS? There are so many options out there with various features.

  1. Would be curious why you chose DeLorme? Was it because the PN-40 map included the CDT?
